This year is one we definitely won’t be able to forget but definitely will want to.
I’d never dreamed the world as we knew it would be a distant memory. I’m still praying that we can get back a little bit more of what normal was and it be even better. For surely we have learned something from all of this.
It’s times like these I feel that I am blessed that I live in a rural area on top of mountain where I can escape the city where you are constantly reminded of how a virus has changed everyones lives.
So, how can this yr be salvaged from a virus scare so great it has shut down any interaction with others unless they live with you?
First don’t take for granted you actually have people near you. Some people have no one to help them get through. Even though some enjoy being alone, there are so many that hate it and are falling in depression because of it.
We definitely need to pray more because only God can get us out of this mess. We need to focus on things we can change for the better.
I don’t know about you but I have put on so much weight this yr that I don’t think I’ll ever get it off. It’s because of stress. This year has totally become one bad habit after another. I do good for a week and then I’m downhill for three. It’s really not all Corona either. It’s Corona on top of other things. It’s like the virus just makes everything worse.
Today, I want to try again, I might fail and there’s a good chance I will fall and I’ll be on the couch stuffing my face knowing the junk food I’m eating is not going to make me feel any better come tomorrow. What do I do then? Try again because that’s all we can do.
So other than trying to get healthier there are other ways of finding happiness during this crazy year.
We can try to be nicer. Some people are so stressed that just a smile can brighten their day. I know we are all wearing masks but this is where those eyebrows and your eyes come into play. I see people when I go get groceries and you can just tell those that are trying to smile and be happy even with a mask.
Don’t forget little things are important. Do things that causes happiness inside of you. Read a book, have a campfire, go swimming before it’s too late, watch a feel good movie, write someone, or call them. Do acts of kindness, let people know you care and love them. More than anything don’t forget to pray. Be thankful for what you have because no matter what you’re going through or how bad things seem. There’s always someone worse off than you.
So let’s finish 2020 strong together! We can do it, it may be a struggle but we can do it!
Though the struggle is real ,so is God!
