The Blessings of a Pandemic
Even in a Hurricane, there is an eye where it’s calm, surreal and sunny. This pandemic has all of us going in different directions. We are confused, scared, frustrated. We are annoyed, angry and wanting all of this to be a bad dream. I challenge each one of you to look at what you may be blessed with to gain a better perspective on hope and the future. That may seem terribly difficult. None of this has been easy but like you, I am trying.
Don’t misunderstand me, it has been scary, difficult and painful.
I have been blessed in spite of seeing such confusion, pain and heartache all around me. Hearing your voices and struggles, while I’ve silently prayed for each of you. People I care about are no longer here. The situations are weighing heavy on our hearts. We still go forward. “This too shall pass”. Right now would be great! I learned baking for my neighbors didn’t poison them and the small acts of kindness helped us all feel better. Running errands for those compromised was also something that I could do to be proactive in these times.
My work is priceless, it’s rewarding and something I value. Making a difference in helping people is never overrated.
Missing some holidays and special occasions really wore on my heart. But, I went around it and mailed special gifts to the ones I love. My children are of my most precious blessings of all. I miss them. The TV is not a necessity! I started drawing again, reading and doing projects that I’ve left unattended. My friends and family are the bomb. They’re all crazy in their ways but my life would be so empty without them. FaceTime is invaluable!
Sending cards to let people know I was thinking of them was better than a text or e mail. Old ways are still useful and people feel good getting a card in the mail just because.
The person I grew up with that I’ve known forever ended up being a surprise I never expected. He came through with flying colors. Volunteering when I had time was more rewarding then ever just sending a small donation.
Sending a $5 donation adds up. That can help too. People need a caring smile, a word of hope. Sleep is a good thing, when I can grab some. My dogs are incredibly patient and we all should learn from animals. They are unique creatures who regardless of any circumstances, always loyal.
My ex breaking my heart was indeed a blessing. I wish him all the best but I can see why God closed that door, well, He slammed it shut. I deserve better. Better is what I’ve been granted. I just had to have some patience. There are reasons why things don’t work out. When you’re spiraling in the center of it all you get dizzy. Sit still and wait it out.
Prayer is not underrated. It helps. I’m not in a perfect place, none of us are but together we can make it better all it takes is a little kindness. This pandemic is showing me I can and will persevere and so will you.
We are in a waiting period. Waiting for things to pass. We are waiting for truths to be revealed. As an empath I feel the shift. Do you? I have loved one’s who have contracted this illness- Covid 19. I understand.
This is a time of character and will. A time to come together, to re- evaluate. Don’t let it get the better of you. It’s easy to fall into the grips of doom and depression.
This is the time to step up and be the best you possible.
Put on your spiritual armor and begin.
