Spending Time At Home during Pandemic

2 comments

Since it is pandemic, it’s difficult to travel to and from anywhere.

I am grateful for my work during these tough times. This blessing also comes with challenges. I almost spend a month away from home so that I can go to work during weekdays.

I wasn’t able to go home on weekends due to travel constraints like fear of being infected with virus and also trying to use private vehicle rather than the limited public vehicle.

I am so thankful that I got to see my family, my home, plants, and the cats in our home today!

There are the challenges I need to face and sacrifices to take in this life.

Many people lost their jobs due to pandemic. A great number of people also lost their lives. It is the tragedy we need to live in.

There is nothing permanent in our world but we need to adapt to these changes and cope with these tough situations.

Quitting isn’t the answer. Staying in situations where you can’t see the light might be the answer. It might look like a hopeless situation but as time pass by, it will all get better.

You will be in a brighter place after months of patiently waiting. You will see the fruits of your hard work in due time.

As I was able to return to my home after weeks, your situation will also get better. You can return to your country, city, and your home.

We can keep positive thoughts so that we can turn our challenges into possibilities.

I spent my weekends away from home by creating my blog site that you are reading now. I also discover a sense of direction which I lost for years. I gained self confidence that I can do what I set my mind to do.

Each of us have different timelines of what we achieve in our lives. We can enjoy what we have now, work for the things that we value and create awesome artworks to remind us of our abilities and talents.

I can say that I have been able to return at home as a changed person.

The past weeks away from home gives me the time to reflect on what person I want to become. I also gained the courage to start pursuing my buried dreams.

If you are facing these challenges of being away from your home, a place of safety, a place of your comfort zone, see these times as an opportunity to grow as a person. Use these times to have a positive mindset to conquer your fears.

I will spend this weekend at home and I will spend my time on tasks that can improve my outlook in life. I will also do things that I love. I will learn about things that can benefit me in certain areas of my life.

This is also a great weekend to write and create more wonderful works.

It is easy to say that we deserve to relax during weekends. We worked and gave our best on weekdays so we thought that we can stay at home and chill with Netflix on weekends.

It can be your way of life but you can always change that. You can choose doing what matters to you.

I wake up at 5:40 am today. It’s nice to wake up early even on weekends. I got home last night after weeks of being away from home due to work.

I spent time catching up with my family. I also go for a morning jog with my dad. On our way back, we bought some fruits and pork in the street market.

I took a short video of the surroundings while jogging. I want to save memories in whatever I am doing. I also like taking pictures and photos of the places I have been to.

I can enjoy the activity and be more fit and healthy. I can appreciate the sounds of the leaves as I walk slowly. I can also feel the warmth of the sun and the coolness of air as it touches my face.

It’s nice to appreciate these moments and be grateful for the blessing of life.

I ate breakfast when I got back at home. I ate dried fish which I also love. I also eat banana and drink water.

Staying fit is also one of my goals. I want to be healthy so that I can be more productive and create great works.

I jog in a Saturday morning. I ate a healthy breakfast, lunch and took an afternoon nap. I took warm bath after I wake up. I cook food and share it with my sister. I edit some blog post and went to my mom to help in her store. And right now, I am writing this blog in my laptop.

I can say that this weekend is a combination of taking time for self-care, helping others and following my writing schedule.

My life changed after having my own blog. I became conscious of where my time is spent and mindful of my daily activities.

At 6 pm, I made a Reddit community too. I might add some link towards it later. I enjoy reading posts in Reddit of different person on topics that I am interested in.

This evening, I also created a Facebook account that I can use for promoting some of my links. It feels great to join the Bloggers community on Facebook. I get to see the number of hardworking bloggers around the world. Seeing their post on my wall sends me inspiration that I can write more like them. I add those people who caught my interest with their blogs. I love reading blogs as much as writing them.

I haven’t made the Twitter and Instagram account for my blog yet. I believe that there is time for everything. Last week I was planning to make a Facebook account and it was created today! I might make other accounts on some more social media platforms this month.

I am taking things slowly so that I can create more post in my blog. I don’t want to promote my blog if I feel I wasn’t ready to share all my post in various apps. I like to focus more on Facebook then move to other apps like Instagram later this month.

Tomorrow is Sunday and I like to read about the stock market, technical analysis and understanding the risks of the stocks that I bought. I will also decide on which stocks I will buy when the market opens on weekdays.

Recently I bought 1000 shares from an energy company and I like to buy more of it in the next few months. I am also looking in the different shares of financial institutions. I read about the background of different companies before investing my money on it.

I want to have a productive weekend. I will do some stretching exercise this Sunday morning. I will also cook my food in the afternoon. I also want to improve the appearance of my website, add some links in the blog post that can lead the visitors to my previous and latest post.

I also want to decide on which investments I will put my money. The prices of mutual funds and UITF’s were so high this month so I will try to put more of my money on the stocks that I have read about. I want to also reach some of my savings goal this year so I will review the plans I made.

I aim to improve in many areas of my life. A big part of it will be in financial, physical and emotional aspect. I want to earn more and be successful in my side hustles. I want to create more passive income streams.

I know I can’t do all things all at once so I should also take good care of myself, value what I have and follow the plans that I set.

  1. Home is where joy and inspiration begins. I didn’t get to stay at home last year with the lockdown but I’m catching now with requested time off because time with self & family are everything. Have a great weekend.
