Late Monday Night Chat

Grab a cup of your favorite beverage and let’s hangout. I got my favorite pink camo mug of hot herbal tea sitting beside me as I write.

So, it’s the start of a new week and holy cow am I thankful for that. This past week was a roller coaster, to say the least. I started this blog as a way to not only better myself but in hopes that what I share might be useful to you too. We’re all human and we have those days or weeks where we’re like, ok, is it the weekend yet? In my case, I’d say it’s more like, is it 2021 yet?

The start of 2020 was exciting! A New Year, New Me type of situation. Am I right? Just like every year, we make a list of things we either want to change, excel, or learn. Well, I have been learning a lot! A lot more than I thought I would be in such a short time. When it comes to blogging there’s way more to it than I thought. I tip my hat to the men and women who do this for a living! Kudos! I won’t bore you with too many details but I’ve been learning to read code, write code, take photos, edit photos, advertise, and don’t get me started on social media-haha! Being away from social media for 4yrs was bliss!

To my point, this year has so far stretched and tested me unlike any other. Not to get political but it is an election year, the media can’t decide what side they’re on (the people/facts or the current trend), CO(VIRUS)D-19; gotta type it out like that because civilian material is being buried. I mean what the heck is going on with our world. I know I'm not the only one.

This past week I’ve spent a lot of time diving into books, history, meetings over the phone, Zoom calls, hundreds of messages. I went back to what I believe is number one- human connection. I’m going to be real with you. I have friends of all different backgrounds and professions. Some rich, some lower income. Some young, some aged like a fine wine. One thing is the same across the board, we are all human.

Humans make mistakes. Humans have emotions. Humans get fatigued, stressed, and yes we all even cry. Heck, human connection is as real as it gets and that's why it's so important we use our phones the way they were intended. To make a phone call! Talking, sharing life stories, hearing, and listening to others' experiences can be uplifting or downright heartbreaking. I'd say most of the people in my corner are those on the front lines. People who I remember could light up the room just by standing in it. Now, they are so drained, showing signs of depression, worrisome, and even angst. I'm doing all I can to brighten their day with a simple call or message, "Hey, I thought of you today! How are you?" Being genuine, comforting, uplifting, listening, and just wishing I could give them a hug. Praying for each of them and their families.

Remember this, we didn't come into this world alone. We all need a connection. With times being what they are right now, it may look a little different but do reach out to your circle. Don't wait for them to reach out to you. Do what you can to help our front line! They are the real heroes! They are brave, courageous, and sometimes super-human! They run TOWARDS you when you're sick or injured. They run TOWARDS danger when most people would run away. Don't forget to be humble in chaos.

If you need someone to reach out to, comment below, or head over and message me on social media. You are not alone.
