How the Hell is it July?
In a world Post-COVID19, time has been moving incredibly fast... but also painfully slowly.
I don't know about you but if it weren't for my work schedule, I wouldn't know what day it is at all anymore. Time seems to completely blend together! I feel like I upload my YouTube videos on Wednesday and then I blink and it's time to upload the next one! 😂
Are you experiencing this?
I don't know if it's because of everything happening in the world, this pandemic or what but it's difficult to maintain focus sometimes. It's not impossible, by any means, but it's also ok to have difficult moments too.
Still, even as our social media feeds seemingly go back to whatever "normal" was, it's still important to be anti-racist and continue having difficult conversations with family and friends. Black Lives Matter isn't a trend, it's an actual movement that will continue in the months and years ahead.
😷It's important to stay vigilant in wearing a mask and social distancing. Cases here in the US are rising because people don't want to follow health officials. It's frustrating watching the rest of the world decrease in cases while many people here don't believe COVID-19 is even real! 🙄Ugh!
I hope you're doing your best to stay strong in this wild whirlwind of a year. Many lives have been lost worldwide and going outside can be really terrifying. Make sure you monitor your physical AND mental health because I still believe there is hope for a positive outcome. This will NOT be our forever, even though it feels like it is.
Stay strong and I'm sending you love. 💗
Happy Wednesday! 😁
