Hey everyone, I’m back 😉
Hope you are all okay and keeping safe ❤
In today’s post, I wanted to talk about life, update you all on what’s going on in my life, talk about the coronavirus (or COVID-19 as they call it), and just stepping back into blogging again, I’ve missed it and you a lot!
I am taking a longer break with my podcast though, as I can’t record these days, there’s too much noise from everywhere. Due to the COVID-19, my husband is working from home, my nephew and niece is home, and all the other kids and parents in our neighborhood, so there too much noise almost at all times of the day. I tried recording episode 11 about 8 times and the editing was brutal, I couldn’t edit all the screaming, laughing and noise that entered my recording, lol. So I thought it was best for my own mental health, lol, to just take a hopefully just a short break.
Meanwhile, my mom finished her 5th treatment out of 12, and she is not doing well. She is not eating nor drinking as much but she keeps fighting. Her energy levels are low and she is feeling weak at the moment. She is so strong with all this situation and she is not giving up on this fight at all. The great news is that they are letting me visit for a short time in her nursing home, so I can visit my mom in person and not just through a video call.
My mom is a great inspiration for how to tackle life’s obstacles, I am so proud of her. I know that if she will keep on fighting, she will win this fight again. There’s nothing like life to throw some obstacles onto us, lol, am I right? I still need to keep my distance and I can’t wait to hug her, but for now, it is such a great improvement for us both ❤
I can’t wait for normal life to come back, or at least some sort of new normal 😉
Recently, I picked up meditation again, I’m enjoying the stillness and the calm. I saw that I’m getting too anxious and nitpicky all the time and pretty much felt annoyed by everything and everyone, and that is definitely not good, not for me and not for others around me.
I also started working out more, even though it is hard for me to keep at it. I really don’t like working out especially these days, hehe. But I have to move somehow. This is funny… but my husband and I always thought that he will get annoyed with staying at home all the time, but to our surprise and shock, I am the one that started to get really annoyed by staying in all the time. So I try to move, workout, visit my mom, or even do the things I used to really hate doing, like shopping, lol.
I also picked up yoga again and even bought a new yoga mat and a few rubber bands to help me stretch better. I want to try and practice yoga every day, which brings me to my next update. I will do a separate post on this that explains fully what I’m doing, but for now… From today, I am starting the #100daysproject challenge and doing yoga every day is a part of that 🙂
I also picked up my hobby of junk journaling again and it makes me so happy and so relaxed. I missed journaling and practice some art. It quickly calms me down, even when I guess overwhelmed and stressed. I even made a new journal from 2 long envelopes and it holds so well, I love it 😀
As a final note I want to blog more so you will see more of me, hehe 😉
Before I’ll go I wanted to say thank you for all your kind words and your beautiful Dm’s on my Instagram, and for sticking around. I love you all.
Until next time, be happy, stay at home, and stay safe,
As always, thank you so much for reading ❤
