May 8 – Success

Tell us about a time where everything you’d hoped would happen actually did.

There aren’t that many successful moments in our lifetime, sometimes we don’t even remember them. We do remember, however, the successful and beautiful moments that do happen.

Success to me means accomplishing or completing a goal that we set for ourselves. For example, finish reading a book, learning and cooking a recipe, and many more. You should know your own goals.

During this quarantine, I have been successful many times, or so I think.

One of my goals this year was to get back to writing and guess what? I did and I am still doing it. I have to thank COVID-19 for that. I also got back to playing the guitar, which was something I really wanted to do for the longest time but never really cared for it. Somehow Netflix always got in the way. Excuses, excuses...

Also, I didn’t think I was going to be exercising while being stuck at home. But hey, somehow I always make the time for it, and even if it is for 15 minutes, I wake my heartbeat up and get the blood flowing. Everyone should try it, trust me – it will change your day completely!

I guess it hasn’t been that bad being stuck at home after all …

Anyone else been successful at completing personal goals during quarantine?

Day 18 – New

New like our new way of living or new like a new object or game that we have acquired during quarantine? Well, I think I have created a new routine every week and have gotten more interested in new things if not every day, then every week.

Writing is a good example. It is not new to me, but it is definitely something I had the opportunity to get back to while being at home. It feels like an accomplishment for me to be able to get back to doing the things I like.

I have also gone back to playing music. I got a new guitar and new strings for my older one. This is not new to me, however, it’s been years since I last played a song or even grabbed my guitar. I feel like staying at home and having a lot of free time has wakened up my virtuoso side. It is certainly a good thing!

Notice that I am not adding cooking to the list. Cooking is something that I do regardless of the situation. That is the one thing I will never stop doing. For those of you who know me, know that I am cooking breakfast almost the minute after waking up. So, not putting a meal together, for me is not an option.

But anyway.. all of this to say that staying at home is not as bad as it seems. You can definitely do the things you like and not do the ones you don’t like..It’s that simple.

 

Day 8 – Curve

Well, this whole pandemic is a big curveball…

It is forcing all of us to stay at home and pause. Isn’t this amazing? But you haven’t thought about it that way, right? Being at home is making me take care of myself for what I really want, and follow my own routine, even though I’m still working from home. I can even work out in my pajamas for all I know…

I see it as a way of enjoying life during a pandemic that’s not shown on TV or in movies. Pandemics in movies are always horrible and scary. But here we are, chilling at home, watching TV, working and drinking..all at the same time. I could live like this, why not?

Yes, here I am going back to movies. But guess what? That’s the only thing all over my curves.
