It’s funny as things seemed to be going great for my blog weird things starts to happen. I finally got some time to check out my favorite blogs, engage and check out the latest happenings.
I’m shocked to learn that I’m no longer able to view my followers. I am not sure if anyone is still here. If you’re still around I’d appreciate it if you not only liked this post but also comment.
I’m just going to take this as an opportunity to start over. Life happens I guess. I have so many things planned out for this blog/website. I’m currently working on my logo and the whole look and feel of it. I’m excited and I can’t wait for you all to see it.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Cues my Andy Williams voice .
One of the harshest realities that hit close to home is that not everyone is as fortune as I am to still have my day job with no loss in benefits. In true Christmas spirit amidst the hustle and bustle of getting the gifts and the whole shebang let us remember those persons who lost their jobs or suffered pay cuts during this pandemic.
I want you to consider the following in giving back. Christmas ,the true meaning is about giving love and sharing hope.
1. Give to your favourite Charities.
2. Prepare meals and give to the homeless.
3. Donate the things you no longer need.
4. Reach out to the nearest community centre or church and volunteer to help out at a soup kitchen.
5. When you’re going shopping pick up and extra item and put a care package for that neighbor or family who is trying to make ends meet.
6. Check in on that elderly person down the road. Not many people can be around their loved ones right now. ( remember Covid-19 protocols)
7. Check in on that family member/friend whom you may think has it all together. The truth is a lot of persons are overwhelmed with everything that is happening and it’s really the thought that counts.
8. Remember the child at the children’s home when you’re going toy shopping ; or you can donate the toys that your child no longer plays with.
What are some of the things we can do to give back this Christmas?
You’re always reading, 😑 annoyed my husband said to me. He’s been nagging me to spend more time with doing anything else other than being tucked away in our bedroom reading books.
It’s been several months since the pandemic. We would be much busier trying to maneuver our respective jobs , raising a toddler and making things work.
It’s not easy, things are not the same or as they used to be. Our lives have been uprooted and so we have to get used to the new norm. We have conflicting schedules, online schooling taking care of a sick parent. Listen, I’m always cooking, juggling being a wife and caregiver but this sh*t is just too much. I thought I was going to lose it. Things got tighter, financially and while we’re still okay I had to cancel most of my subscription boxes, yes I had to make sacrifices we both had.
So, on October 5 I created this blog. I didn’t know what I was doing, still don’t ,but like all things before I’ll figure it out. I started reading books. One good book led to another, and another you get the picture. Book Reviews came and like this post in between ramblings. I haven’t set up a schedule just yet but I’m working off my mood for now.
How has Covid-19 affected your life?
Reading books and posting on my blog has been helping me not to go completely insane.
That’s all for now, I’m currently reading #WIldGame by Andriene Brodeur-
If you read the title you’d have probably realized that I am not writing about a Book I’ve read and or want to read. I just thought I’d write something.
I woke up just now feeling restless, and unable to go back to sleep. The night air is blowing through my window and I can hear the sounds of crickets and frogs probably displaced by the showers of rain we had this afternoon. The fan in my room is swaying left to right because the AC unit is down and I would much rather have the fan than burn up.
It could be all the noise around me that’s preventing me from going back to sleep or the thoughts of uncertainty in my head. I’m scheduled to show up for work tomorrow, and there are tons of work left for me to do before I get to the office.
Have you ever been troubled with your thoughts that it kept you wondering what or how you’d solve the myriad of things going through it all at once? I just read an article what would you be doing with your life if money wasn’t an issue? The truth I would be traveling the world, all I would need is my tablet and my phone because that’s where it works. I’d be my own “Olivia Pope”. Yes I know that we have a pandemic dealing with so traveling may not be anywhere on my radar but that’s what I would be doing and or want to do.
I feel a little better I guess this writing things down helps. If you’ve read this far, you’re a gem. I hope that you’re having a peaceful night and not as restless as I am. I’m going back to reading my book until I fall asleep.
