Passion brings excitement and happiness. Who doesn’t love a man/woman whose passionate about them. When you’re passionate about something or someone you’ll do everything in your power to ensure that you do right by it always. You pay keen attention, you learn from the mistakes and choices made. When you’re truly passionate you live out loud. It’s not just living in the moment it’s the excitement that you look forward to. When you’re passionate about your job, you will never work a day in your life. True passion gives joy, meaning to your existence. Relationships filled with passion last longer than others, all you’re concerned about is maintaining that intimate connection you have with your person. Always be passionate, find what makes you tick, live out loud and just be authentically you. Are you passionate?
Under my Almond Tree
Sometimes the only thing you can do is sit still. I often just find myself sitting on a chair under the big almond tree in the back yard. I haven’t been out here in awhile. I created this corner so that whenever I feel lonely, trapped and or uncertain of my next move I’d just sit under the tree and some how a solution would find its way into my thoughts.
Nature does that for me. It soothes and calms my nerves. I’m not one to easily give up but lately I feel that it doesn’t matter what you do something will not be okay for some people. I need to just relax take things as they come, breathe and move on.
I am not perfect, I make tons of mistakes but in making my mistakes I truly see them as experiences. Everyday I am reminded that people are people. That phrase can be interpreted in so many ways. People are people and it doesn’t matter who you are, social status, sex, orientation etc.
Today was hectic, I still managed to get much work done. Thankfully I was alone in the office. Again being alone helps, I can hear my thoughts and I can focus more, they’re limited distractions.
So my almond tree corner in my back yard. I poured a glass of 🍷 and this is what true peace is. Being still and being one with nature. The problems will sort themselves out.
Here we go Again…
It wasn’t easy at first. Things were going great I had my plan and I was just taking things one day at a time. Shit happens and then you find yourself in limbo trying to decide do I take out this loan or do I cancel the subscription instead.
I don’t like starting something and not being able to complete it. I started out so good learning Spanish and French and then I just lost track of what was happening and completely stopped doing lessons. I no longer have the paid versions. The apps are still on my phone in the event I’m ever tempted to try and do a refresher.
It’s a new year, we’re almost in the month of March. So far so good, I’ve had several disappointments however I am not deterred. I am using these nos to make something of myself and situation. Hearing No can be very daunting.
It’s never easy I am in the middle of completing this degree and still find myself browsing the internet trying to find another course to complete. I must be crazy cause I did tell myself I am tired of the classroom. I just feel that the more information I have the more I will be able to help and serve.
I don’t know how I got here but I want to learn How to use Python. Yeah, this is a total stretch from Business Management. I am however excited to see what I can learn from it. Udemy currently has sales.
Be motivated, get up and get the work done.
Silence isn’t always golden. This is a phrase I shared in 2011 on my Facebook page.
Silence- complete absence of sound (noun) google definition.
I was never one who always spoke up for myself for failure to get on someone’s bad side. All this changed after I’ve realized Silence isn’t always golden. Speaking up allows the other person to know how you’re feeling, whether you’re in agreement or not. It’s important to share your feelings without fear of the outcome.
I’ve been reading books, listening to podcasts talking to people who are very unapologetic about who they are and what they bring to the table. If you’re at a job and you have all the ideas that would make a process work and you don’t say anything, that is to your detriment. How many times have you missed an opportunity to share ideas and even get ahead in life? What has your silence done for you?
After reading the book The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F$@k – Mark Manson it has further cemented me to speak up or focus more directly on what makes me happy. Putting yourself first allows you to strive, to grow and achieve things that you’ve always wanted to achieve.
Whatever you do or say always focus on the bottom line YOU. Ensure that all your encounters leaves you satisfied with your response to any situation. It doesn’t happen over night it takes practice and drive. Never miss another opportunity to shine because you remained silent.
Silence isn’t always golden.
Until next post….
Update: Covid Experience
So you guys know that I’ve been free of the Covid-19 virus for two years but caught it a week or so ago.
I must say that outside of the positive test I wouldn’t know that I was actually carrying this virus. I woke up feeling awful, that’s typical when I have bad sinus days. The cough was not even an indicator, with change of climate especially around winter I would have days when I just had a cough.
Thankfully I had reasons to take a Covid-19 test I got tested and was able to quarantine. I did so per the CDCs instructions. At the end of the period I did a home test which was negative. I further did a PCR molecular test and that also showed I was negative.
I am thankful for my family who was able to provide support during this time, running errands and or being their on video calls to keep me company. I am also grateful that I did not experience any major problems while being positive and I lived to tell the tale.
Since everything I’ve been double masking to to be extra careful. It would’ve been nicer to not get the virus after being vaccinated, but sh*t happens.
I hope that you all are keeping safe.
Until next post…
I tested positive
Almost one year ago I shared with you about my Exposure to Covid-19 . Today I come back after being cautious scared almost of catching this virus because I’ve seen and heard the horror stories with a Covid positive test result.
It took me a good ten minutes to fully register the results after I received the email. My sister was the first person I called to share the results. It seemed the universe was playing an awful joke at the time because she also tested positive at work. So two Covid positive test. This is not something I was looking forward to receiving.
The CDC gave some new guidelines regarding quarantine etc. The site where I tested also provided details in the event I needed medical attention.
The only symptom if any I’ve experienced since tested I’d say is a cough but I have allergies so of course it could have been mistaken as allergies, my allergies are chaotic at this time of the year. I’ve been in quarantine for almost 10 days and outside of the on and off cough I haven’t had any other symptoms thankfully.
I’ve been home most days before this result so to think I’ve been “ careful” wearing my mask washing my hands after being out in public. When im home pretty much no mask is worn. I can’t say how I contracted the virus or from whom. I’m vaccinated which I guess is good , no underlying issues that im aware of.
I figure I will wait until the quarantine is over to retest to find out if the virus is out of my system. I’ve read that the virus can remain in one’s system over 3 months I hope that isn’t the case. I will continue to wear my mask and being extra cautious when I’m around people. I would not want to be the cause of transmission to anyone.
Please continue to be careful out there guys so much is happening and you may just never know. Get tested if you are not well even if you may think it is your allergies.
Have a good rest of the day. I will provide an update on my status when I have one. I am in good spirits , drinking my fluids and trying to stay positive.
Until next time…
