As well are affected, in many different ways, by this Covid-19 Pandemic keep looking up! Find those “Silver Linings”!
Take a moment and look up! Find peace and joy in the simple things! Enjoy small gatherings with family around the table! Talk and play a game! Teachable moments and making of memories. Keep your family safe!
There will be difficult times…especially with businesses closing down or severely limiting staff. Cutting back will be an essential part of life…take this time to teach your children to be creative. Show them how to not panic but be resourceful! Help those around you find the “Silver Lining”!
Remember that we are not in charge and Remember who is in charge! God has this so make sure to pray daily for protection and join your prayers with those prayers from others.
”Pray Big and worry little!”
I may not know everything you are going through right now and that’s okay. I can however share how I am. We tend to seek out a fix during times of struggle to ease the chaos and fear. So my God given message will now be shared.
“Every second, minute and moment…one step at a time. Remember God, Trust God…He is in control and so able!”
Taking one second, minute and moment at a time I have had to remember this previous statement. In the little and big things…everything. There have been many changes that have I, and those around me, have endured and are still walking through. “Whee! What a roller coaster!” Don’t worry…I will not bore you with ins and outs, details left for a later time, instead I will just try and bring a smile to your day.
I’m sitting here today simply sipping my fancy healthy smoothie. “Yikes, I am making my own smoothies!” Life is completely different from when I last posted. I am working a real job and I am attempting to find a new balance to my existence. The very thought of getting up and ready for work and then coming home to different dynamics has been a heart changing experience. I have become accustomed to pulling the proverbial rabbit out of a hat that I can’t find. It is reassuring to know that life is not orderly but filled with layers of inconsistency. Life is not to be set in stone otherwise we are living in a sad venue of complacency. It is filled with possibilities and change that need to be faced with discernment. Face every day as a new and exciting journey…and look for things, “big or small”, that surprise you and put that smile in your day. In doing this you will always put a contagious smile in the hearts of those around you.
How to succeed in this type of lifestyle
#1 Find that reason to smile, laugh…find joy!
#2 Realize that I am not in control!
#3 Prayers are heard!
#4 Singing really silences chaos!
So the concept to bring a smile to your day is this.
#4 Singing while doing anything…”In your head is fine too”…while vacuuming in true Mrs. Doubtfire style. Think about it. You know the scene. Just google it…smiling yet? I am just thinking of the scene. The serene place where we are freely doing something with fierceness with no fear of anything or anyone seeing us.
I am looking forward to writing again. I have missed this and you! Please feel free to send your smiles…in pictures or events. Let’s share with each other! Who knows I could share your smile with someone who needs something positive in a world of negative.
