Hello Beauties!! Longtime no see here on the blog (more reason to follow each other on the GRAM)! Hope everyone is holding up well during this lockdown in our world right now. Who knew that when we were joyfully making resolutions and setting goals in the new year that 2020 would turn out like this. Damn!! The whole world is on their knees due to this devilish corona virus. There have been a videos from Bill Gates and Obama, and a book from a few years back that suggested this day was coming, but somehow they escaped our very own eyes. Does that mean that the world is careless or we’re focusing on the wrong things?
On my absence from the blog. Honestly speaking it all comes down to starting a new job and losing the motivation because of this whole pandemic. I find myself not finding the words and enthusiasm to even type when I log on the dashboard. The stress of having to work even though half of the country was on lockdown got to me. In as much as it feels great to know that I am making a difference in the society, I was worried about myself seeing that my health (immune system) isn’t that great. Anyways I was forced to join the lockdown because my son’s school decided to shut as my son was the only one attending school.
We’re three weeks into the lockdown and most people are feeling miserable at this point. While this pandemic is terrible, I believe this is a lesson in disguise. It has brought oneness, compassion and believe it or not, people have started taking better care of themselves (hygiene). Honestly speaking I get bored sometimes, but I quickly pick myself up with the following;
* Dress Up Like You Got Somewhere To Go *
Did someone say grocery shopping or strolling? Yep, I’m dressing and making myself up for it. The weather has been hella sunny and therefore can not be wasted. Besides these clothes have to be worn before they start talking in the closet. Lol!
* Window Shopping Online *
The temptation to stress buy is on all time high now. I am not encouraging y’all to break your banks, but you can’t deny that window shopping makes one feel good. Superficial you say? Nope! At the rate this coronavirus is going I say do anything that brings joy. As far as it’s not hurting you, anybody and it’s legal. The Zara heels above is a new purchase from one of my online window shopping.
* Keep It Moving With Your Family *
Thank God for a son who loves to move and doesn’t shy away from exercising. On days I’m not motivated, he’ll encourage me through nagging to go to the park to play some football. I love it! Anything to bond with him is great. Organise party, picnic and games in your home.
* Stay Away From Fake News & Negativity *
This is the era of fake and exaggerated news so please choose your sources well. It can be depressing and heartbreaking. WHO is the only site to be trusted.
* Rest And Be Thankful *
Stop complaining and thank God you’re healthy and alive. A lot of people have lost their battle with coronavirus. It could have been us, but here we are so rest. Enjoy the time with whoever you’re quarantine’ing with. Read, dance and do something meaningful with your time.
What have you been doing with yourself during this lockdown?
Thanks much for your visits and meaningful comments. Have a nice week.
