Have you have ever thought about going back to simplicity when it comes to surviving a pandemic, or traumatic situation? That’s exactly what I did, and that has made a huge difference.
What is Simplicity:
According to the dictionary, simplicity is “the quality or condition of being easy to understand or do.”
During the complete shutdown period at the beginning of the pandemic, it was depressive at best. Then, I asked myself what would my childhood self do in that situation? The answer was simpler than I realized. My childhood version would spend hours drawing. I would actually immerse myself in my drawing. I wasn’t much of a TV person. Growing up with ADHD, I get lost on something that would be given. Yes, I would get easily distracted, but drawing gave me the chance to get lost in myself.
Hence during the pandemic, and during the craziest and hardest times of my life, simplicity came to my rescue. The simple act of drawing was my savior. Each time I drew it took me into a world of imagination. It made me feel free and liberated. For someone with anxiety and PSTD, the simple art of drawing was my escape.
Have you chosen simplicity during times of hardship? Whether building with lego sets, drawing, reading, or anything else, it’s the key to our mental freedom. I look forward to your comments.

CAUSES CLOSE TO MY HEART

Please join me to help those who are struggling. If you have good health, full-time jobs, and a roof over your head, please join me to help those who are struggling.

America’s kids need us. The coronavirus is closing schools nationwide, and millions of vulnerable children are losing the school meals they depend on. For some, it’s the only food they’ll receive on a given day. We have a plan to feed kids, but we need your help today to continue our work to ensure every kid gets three meals a day. You can click above to donate to my gofundme page donation going directly to the organization, or you can click on the direct link to the site.
Help make sure all hungry Marylanders have reliable access to nutritious food when you join Sustainers Circle.
PLEASE DONATION ANY AMOUNT YOU CAN AND SHARE THE POST WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW.
Manna Food Center, a nonprofit organization, strives to eliminate hunger in Montgomery County through food distribution, education, and advocacy. Millions of children go to bed hungry in America every year, sadly it’s worse now! Today, 14 million children regularly miss meals — three times more than during the Great Recession and five times more than before the pandemic.
Many parents have lost their job during the pandemic. Sadly, that shows no sign of stopping. Your donation can bring relief to the millions worried about where their next meal will come from. It’s even worse for Latino and Black families, whose rates of nutrition insecurity have spiked to 25% and 30%. In the world’s wealthiest country, this is unconscionable.
Even before the pandemic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated 37 million people in America struggled with hunger and nutrition. The Centers for Disease Control reports 76% of people killed by COVID-19 had at least one underlying condition, most of which were diet-related. Diet-related diseases also fuel skyrocketing health care costs, which rose from 5% to 28% of the federal budget in the past 50 years.
Let’s make the world better, kinder, brighter. Every dollar you give will create real change. $1 will feed 5 hungry children here in the US, but $1,000 will feed 50,000 starving children overseas. Be the good in the lives of many by giving right now.
Your generous support will help me continue to bring contents to you.
