Hi there my beautiful lovelies! Hope you guys are doing well and staying safe. Today, I want to talk to you about the most beneficial thing that I have learned in the past year. I mentioned this before, and I am mentioning it now, the pandemic caught us off guard and turned our lives upside down. Our view of what is normal has changed dramatically. The pandemic has taught us to rethink our lives. How has the pandemic changed your view of your life?
The Lesson of the Pandemic – Is it Beneficial?
The COVID-19 pandemic swept our lives apart fast and quickly. Even as a trained public health person I studied about pandemics, but did not expect to experience one during my lifetime, and that we will not be prepared to handle it at all. It turned my life upside down and I wasn’t prepared for that. However, one beneficial thing that I have learned from the pandemic has reinforced some of my core values. Let me explain what I mean.
Life is short – With the death of over 674,000 lives lost and over 42 million in the US, and 4.55 million death and over 219 million worldwide, one thing that we all learned for your is that life is short. In the pandemic, I have love ones who were infected, on the ventilator, survived, and died. People who were there last year are not here now. The pandemic has hit us without any warning. For the past year and a half, I have focused on the saying, “life is short” a lot. I believed in the saying, “yesterday was history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present”. However, the pandemic reinforced that view. It made me take a step back and rethink life.
It has made me realize the most important thing in my life and make that the priority. My friends, tomorrow is not promised to everyone and I am fortunate to have had the privilege to be live my life. I will not waste that time, creating regrets and negativity. Every step I take I keep that in mind and that has made all the difference. Do I have any anxiety? Of course, I do, but I have learned to acknowledge it and treat myself with kindness. What can be more beneficial than that? The pandemic took a lot but it has given me to reinforce my values and that is the most beneficial lesson for me.
Heroes are Among Us – Another thing that we have seen during the pandemic is that there are ordinary heroes everywhere. Watching these extraordinary heroes inspires me every day. We have seen the healthcare worker, the essential workers, who worked hard every day, kept us safe. We have been ordinary people who stepped forward and do incredible, and extraordinary work to help those affecting and suffering. That lesson is nothing but beneficial.
My dear lovelies! Hope the horrible pandemic has taught you something beneficial. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

CAUSES CLOSE TO MY HEART
PLEASE DONATE DIRECTLY TO THE ORGANIZATIONS THROUGH MY FUNDRAISING LINKS:
I consider myself fortunate to have good health, a full-time job, and a roof over my head. However, there are still so many people who are struggling to put food on their tables. 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. Whether you donate $5 or $500, you will make a huge difference in someone’s life.
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.
PLEASE DONATE 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 content to you.
