Staying Sane In A World On The Edge Of Insanity


Bluebell 2

“When you are joyful, when you say yes to life and have fun and project positivity all around you, you become a sun in the center of every constellation, and people want to be near you.”
~Shannon L. Alder

For the past few weeks, we’ve all be inundated with the Coronavirus. We’ve chatted about it with Family and Friends, we’re still keeping in touch with. I must confess, there have been times I felt myself on that brink of a meltdown, it’s not the staying home part that’s pushing me to the edge. It’s all the paranoia surrounding the pandemic, people are really letting their fear get the most of them. It’s not being able to do something as simple as grocery shopping. It’s the constant battle to remain sane when the world seems to be on the edge of insanity right now.

I just thank God that I have wonderful friends and family who have kept sane the past few weeks because they have made me realise our genuine our connection really is and that we don’t have to in the same room or the same continent for that matter to maintain that connection. A close friend of mine reminded a few days ago, that what we consume in our hearts is what will consume our lives and that no matter what life throughs at us we should consume those things that bring us joy. Right now that one thing that brings me joy is being able to stroll among the bluebells in the Sunshine.

So I’m sharing some wonderful quotes that I’ve received through emails and WhatsApp hoping they bring as much motivation to you as they did me.

  1. I’m with you, it’s the news which makes it difficult! I’m trying to limit my time with the news but programs get interrupted by news updates!

    Just trying to focus on the positive, get outside daily to walk and breathe some fresh air, even if it’s around my apartment complex!

    Be well! We’re going to get through this stronger!

    Peace, Tamara

    1. Yes! I’m the same. I’m staying positive and living in gratitude. We moved to our new home in September, at first I was felt it was too far away from my familiar place we lived for 5 years since moving to Scotland. I complained about living so close to the forest.

      But now I appreciated my new home. I probably would’ve been going crazy in the flat we moved from. I appreciate the forest because I can walk for hours without seeing a soul, perfect for social distancing 🙂

      Stay Safe and wishing you love and love Xx

      1. Sounds like a divine intervention led to a wonderful place! I’m grateful to live in an apartment complex that I can walk around and even drive to one of the few city parks still open! Keep enjoying the fresh air! Be well!!
