If someone would have told me last year that a year from now, I wouldn't be able to hang out with friends, or at the mall nor go out to dinner at our favourite restaurants for months, because this virus was going to hit the world and literally put the whole world on hold for a while, I would have probably laughed.
But every situation bad or good always teaches us something and I've definitely become more laid back and less stressing about everything. I'm a planner and a little bit of a stressor as well (my husband would probably erase the “a little bit” part). I plan everything in my life. I've had a five year plan for my five year plan, if you know what I mean. But this, I could have not planned at all. Still in the midst of this pandemia, I've had an enormous amount of peace and for the first time in a long really long time I understood the meaning of the verse; Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid (John 14:27).
Im blessed to have someone to share life with during these times, a roof over my head and an income, even though it's not the one i'm usually used to, it's still a good one. I've been able to spend more time decorating our home and cleaning like everyday. Most of all I've enjoyed just spending time with my husband of only 8 months. Im looking on the bright side of things, enjoying every moment I can and just taking it one day at a time. I'm pretty sure that the way we were living before with booked calendars, litter rest and almost no time to exhale, isn't what God has in mind for us.
Ive also had to redefine my priorities and the things I want to from this life. Im not gonna lie and say I don't work for money. Yes I enjoy my job but I enjoy it also because I get paid and that enables me to do different kinds of things, but as cliche as it sounds the best things in life money cant buy.
