Covid-19, Gratitude, Living for TODAY

I failed.

I failed June’s challenge — staying off of social media, the news, blogs, and YouTube was harder than I thought.

I initially was doing well but it didn’t last. I failed miserably by Day 3.  Since June was a complete train wreck (and you know what happens when you see a train wreck) I found myself not able to look away.  If I didn’t read it or see it, my husband was sure to tell me about it.  It all just made me sad.

Although I did a few of the things on my list, I didn’t do as much as I wanted.

Like write more in this space.  I haven’t quite been able to put two words together.  If you are reading this post, then I was actually able to finish it.  Like many people during this time, I have had extreme mood swings.  One day I have a ton of energy, ready to take on the day, and the next day all I can do is flop on the couch and binge watch a TV series.

These weird times have been hard for me, I have to admit.  It just all feels surreal.  But I continue to be grateful for all that I have and try to remember that my life is still pretty darn good.

I hope you all had a great June, and are staying healthy and safe. xoxo

  1. I’ve tried to stay off social media. I unfollowed everyone from Facebook except my golden retriever group so I could see the dog pics. It helps to not see all the negativity every time I log in
