I’ve just been keeping myself busy these days still: working out, keeping my plants alive, signing up and attending little seminars and classes on Zoom. Just doing what I can with the time I have since it sounds like some things may be opening back up here soon.
With that being said: how are you feeling? I’ve honestly heard of a few states opening businesses back up, with city governors advising the cities they are head of to stay put. It’s like it gives us some hope, but also, leaves us questioning if it’s truly hope, or just an illusion. I guess we’ll do what we’ve been doing for the past couple of months: wait and see what happens.
As for me personally, I’m little frazzled on what to write about right now 😅 I’ve been reading, researching, and taking online classes on how to upgrade my brand, my blogging, my writing. I feel like every day brings something different, and I don’t want to overwhelm myself, but at the same time, I don’t want to waste my time either. I feel like I’ve been working so hard, but not getting anywhere sometimes, but I always have to assure myself that working at something will get me somewhere! Progress will be made regardless!
If I were to encourage you, I’d say this: keep going. Keep focusing on what you’re doing, not on what someone else is doing. It can be easy for us to lose sight of our own tasks when we are looking at what other people are doing, and we might be tempted to keep looking at what other people are doing because we have the time to keep scrolling through their lives on social media.
Just because we have the time to do something, doesn’t mean we should be doing it. Use your time wisely!
I’ve been inspired by so many wonderful friends to keep going, to keep doing the thing I love to do most – write. And they’ve been encouraging me by doing the things they love to do most; we don’t even have to have a conversation, they’re just doing it! And I love to see it!
Honestly, while I’ve been writing here on my blog, I haven’t really done much writing outside of here. I’ve written a poem here or there, and even a couple of journal entries, but not every day. So, starting tonight, I will continue to commit to blog here every day (minus Sunday), and I re-commit to writing outside of here (whether it be journaling, poetry writing, etc.) as well! Because that’s the type of writing I love most!
What is something you need to re-commit to? It can be something you began when this quarantined started, but then slowly faded away from doing it. It can be something you used to do pre-quarantine, and haven’t done since we began social distancing. Or, what’s something new you can commit to doing today?
