Today is Monday. With so much uncertainty in the current affairs of the world, I wanted to bring back for myself, a reminder of what day it was.
Thanks for joining me.
Returning to the blog is part of mine and today’s Monday Mantra: Making ME time. For some, working from home has become the new normal. For others, life may continue as usual, perhaps with more extra anxiety or stress. I have been given the opportunity of time with some financial set-backs. I have felt despair and anxiety for over a month till I decided to come back here to write.
Time that I have decided to use for ME to explore my inner passions has been both exciting and exhilarating. No matter what your circumstances are, I think it is important to remember you still have the option to be away from people you might be in close contact with at all times. Since doing so, I have felt a sense of freedom (while being inside most of the time.) The kind of control that is not egotistical or rude or disrespectful. Rather a control that equals self-love. Having this control has given me hope. Since during ME time, I have been creative, a student , a reader of new found knowledge, and also an observer of a world that perhaps needs me to listen to it (using Zoom and other platforms to connect!) Whoever you are and whatever your role might be right now, giving yourself ME time is important for the well being of our society.
You can interpret ME time as you wish. For me perhaps it is the hope that people will find if only a minute at least or ten at best, for their mind to truly tune in with their inner being; their self-love. My hope is that doing so will offer some kind of relief and resilience, and maybe even joy!
If any one would like to share what they have been doing thus far or any suggestions, that would be wonderful. I think it would help right now to feel connected heart-to-heart during a time when the future is truly unknown.
