The mixed emotions I felt heading to a destination known and unknown set a rocky motion of fear and confusion inside me. My heart raced after each mile completed, which set a bundle of nerves taking over me. I fought to keep my breathing in control and my skin felt clammy. I knew that I was getting closer whether I was ready or not.
Good morning/afternoon! I hope you all are well and being safe. With what’s happening with this #covid19 #coronavirus pandemic, I hope that everyone is doing what they can to stay safe and to take precautions; and as I will do the same. One thing though, as I take this pandemic serious and pray for those affected, I am working on not allowing myself to get into the mass hysteria because…well, because I won’t since it will not help any. I need not say more on this because it gives me a headache after seeing memes about it and what people including the political and healthcare officials have to say about it. Hmm.
Below is a poem I would like to share from another writer whose poetry I had came upon on a website. It’s uplifting and filled with positivity. I hope it can help someone. Be strong. Be safe. And do what you can however you can. Do not stress yourself about any of what’s happening since in my country, the United States, it is also election year. 🤔 (I’ll stay quiet on this before I vent.)
Take care. Much love,
This Is A Daily Reminder
By: Nicolette- March 2015
This is a daily reminder To relax, To not get angry over small things, To stay calm.
This is a daily reminder To be yourself, To not care what people think, To know you can be anything.
This is a daily reminder To love yourself, To not hurt yourself, To not work yourself up.
This is a daily reminder That you are beautiful, That you are amazing, That you will succeed.
This is a daily reminder To always have hope, To have faith, To know everything will be okay.
This is a daily reminder That you have made it so far already, That you haven’t given up, That whatever you’re doing is right, And that you are going to be amazing.
No matter what it was that had happened in your life, it happened for a reason. Everything does. Life is our greatest teacher, and what we go through are lessons that help us learn and to grow. And, to be a better version of ourselves.
I hope you all have been well, and remember that every day you open your eyes is a blessing. You matter. And each and every one of you are going to be okay.
