Welcome to my Friday feature! Created by the wonderful Meggy @ Chocolate ‘n’ Waffles, it’s a remedy against feeling down by creating a list of all the good things happening in my life this week. I became so inspired by her weekly posts and later also that by Nickimags @ Secret Library Book Blog, I felt it was time to begin sharing my own good feelings. It can be anything, from the smallest gesture from a stranger to a major event in your life that alters the direction of your day. Maybe something here will bring a smile to you in the moment.
This week, I’m going to focus on all the things I’m grateful for in the midst of all the worldwide worry and concern.
Bosch Season 6 showed up a day earlier so hubby & I quickly clicked off three episodes last night. We were giddy!!! And, they were SO good💜
Oh, how I’ve missed my workshops! So, I decided to check out the virtual one via Zoom on Wednesday. My workshop leader led the meeting and my Besties were there!!! It was the inspiration I needed to stay on track.
Unnerved by the lack of proper social distancing, I gave up walking. After reconsideration, I decided that I should take more control and resume my walking through my neighborhood. I’ve gotten two walks completed in a row and made the adjustments when people misbehaved, without feeling rude about it.
I never realized that I suffered from anxiety until all the recent discussions about it. I realized that I’d developed subconscious coping mechanisms to deal with it so it was my normal…until this stay at home order. Few of my coping mechanisms were available so I was a bit of a mess. It’s why I didn’t do a post last week. So, I listened to all these wonderful professionals out there and developed new techniques and they are working! I’m back to business and when I feel it creeping back up, I stop and deal with it before it takes over. Mine isn’t totally debilitating because most around me would never know. But, I like feeling like “me” and being my best self.
Had to abandon Walmart grocery delivery or pickup because it wasn’t working. So, I tried Lowes Foods and it worked beautifully. My store is about a mile away and had a drive thru lane with a call button. It was incredibly easy.
Our neighbors across the street conversed with me yesterday using social distancing. We talked for 30 minutes and it was wonderful!!!
I continue to pause and reflect upon the people and things in my life that truly matter. For that, I’m grateful.
