First and foremost, I hope you are all staying safe during this devastating time. I want to give a HUGE thank you to all of the healthcare workers, postal workers, grocery store workers, fast food workers, truck drivers, warehouse workers, etc. Things would be so much worse if it were not for you. So thank you from the bottom of my heart. Things have been absolutely crazy as I am sure they are for most of you as well. I have never imagined that something to this magnitude would ever happen.. let alone in my lifetime. As we are all trying to navigate a new life, I would be lying if I said I haven’t been a little bit scared. This past week has taught me quite a bit of life lessons, some that I didn’t know I needed. I am beyond grateful to still have a paycheck coming in as I am working from home. Many are not as fortunate. I am grateful for my health even though I have some issues, I am still living and breathing. I am grateful that my entire family is safe and healthy. I am grateful to now have the time to do the things that I love such as getting back into a workout routine, reading and crafting. I was so caught up in life that I kind of lost the things that made me really happy. If anything, this has taught me to just live. To quit worrying about the stupid stuff and start doing the things that actually puts a smile on my face. This past week, I have really stepped back from life in general. As I said, I have jumped back into working out and have since been busting my butt in my parents “at home gym”. That alone has kept me sane. For some reason, I always ran and ran and ran and always felt rushed. Rushed to get to work, rushed to go out with friends, rushed to do this and that. For what? I felt so overwhelmed, all of the time. When in reality, I should of just used my free time to relax and work on my hobbies.  I remember how I would always beat myself up if I laid down for a little or took time for myself. I also always worried about not getting stuff done blog wise or Instagram wise. Now I am diving back into doing more self care. So as much as this quarantine has sucked, I have been able to turn a small part of it positive. Now don’t let me fool you, I have been kind of eh about one thing (personally). Again, I know I have it VERY good compared to many others so don’t take this as me being ungrateful or a first world problems kind of thing but through all of this, I haven’t been able to see my boyfriend. We haven’t seen each other since last week because when this broke out, anyone who has underlying health issues is said to get completely wiped out. So because of his mom, we both decided to not chance it. I would never be able to live with myself if I was the one who got her sick. Now to compare that to what everyone else is dealing with, I’ll take it. But it still kind of sucks lol! That being said, my heart aches for all of the people who lost their lives as well as their loved ones and friends that this virus has affected. My heart aches to those who are sick. And my heart aches to all of the businesses and employees who have had their lives turned upside down. I really feel for the small business owners. I have become friends with some small business owners who have taken a fairly large hit. It kills me knowing that peoples dreams that they worked so damn hard for are falling apart right in front of their eyes without any of their doing. I know that we will rise and I know that we will overcome this. I pray for those who have been affected and I pray for those that have not. We have to stick together. We have to get through this and become stronger. Please feel free to reach out to me through email or Instagram if you’re struggling whether that be mentally or financially and I will try to help out as best as I could. 


In the meantime, I wanted to share what has worked for me. I am so not the person to sit around and be cooped up inside so I am doing everything in my power to stay sane. Here is my new weekly and weekend schedule.

Crafting has helped me a lot as does working out so I highly recommend diving into that. Again, please don’t hesitate to reach out! As always, stay safe, stay kind, and stay grateful.
