Keeping on.. again and again..

This pandemic has sparked huge changes in the world – and they haven’t generally been very positive ones either.

There has been a lot of ‘stuff’ happening… things that have extended beyond the scope of even MY imagination. Bad things. Horrible things. Disheartening things. Things that stir up anger in the hearts of even the mildest of people.
Stuff has happened that is directly affecting me and my little household. Despondency is setting in for even the strongest people I know, who have never uttered a negative word in the past, despite their circumstances.

My heart is feeling heavy. There is only so much I can do. But I know this : I need to keep doing it. People who know me, and even here in the blogging world, know that I often make the statement, ”Just keep on keeping on”.

That little statement is something I live by, not just something I say. Yes, I may pause to cry, or feel angry. Yes, it isn’t all sunshine and rainbows every minute of every day.

Because we HAVE to allow ourselves to FEEL… even the bad stuff. We just need not stay there… which reminds me of the little story that goes something like this :

Life is a journey, and sometimes you’re faced with a steep mountain and rocky terrain, which makes the journey difficult to continue with. Sometimes you will need to stop and rest, sit on a rock, cry or be angry. But then you need to stand up, and keep going… for the journey is not over yet. Stop for a moment and rest, but don’t pitch your tent and stay. There is so much more ahead.

Life in the pandemic is feeling like continuous rocky terrain and endless mountains. It’s brought more tears and anger in the time it has been around than what some have faced in their entire lives.
There are no guarantees… and I have no promise that things will get better.

But, dear hearts who are reading this…
Please keep on keeping on.

You are loved. You are needed. Your contribution to this world counts – even if it’s just sharing the warmth of your smile.
YOU make a difference!

  1. Hi Meg,
    I totally agree with you and the sentiments that you are sharing, and yes we do have too keep on moving and doing something.
    We also have to allow ourselves to feel and acknowledge those feelings.πŸ€—β€
    I have a plaque on my bookshelf which reads Don’t give up and it’s a sentiment I try to live by.
    I hope that you and your family are remaining well πŸ™.
    Stay safe and take care my friend ❀x

    1. One of my favourite funnies from my younger years?
      ”I see a light at the end of the tunnel… I just hope it’s not another train coming” πŸ˜›

      We do need to just keep going. And sometimes we just need to BE the light, as best we can, for those around us.

      Sending thoughts your way x

      1. He lifted the ban on alcohol last night! Our liquor stores are allowed to open this morning at 10am!!!!!! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰
        He has also finally opened up our beaches again! So at least we have a few more weeks of great weather to enjoy the fresh air and sand between our toes πŸ˜‰
        Unfortunately, we are still on curfew. And if I go anywhere without a mask, I face prison time. Sigh.
        All sorts of other issues – the crashed economy being one. :/
        AND we still can’t apply for passports – a rather interesting Covid restriction :/

        But hey, we can drink πŸ˜‰ I think I’ll give it a couple of days before I go buy my champagne though – the queues are going to be ridiculous! Ha ha ha!

      2. Well, it’s sounds like it’s getting better I guess πŸ€ͺ but prison because of masks !!!! Holy cow batgirl, that’s extreme! You’re quite right waiting for the stampede to die down before dashing for the champagne. If I were you I’d but 10 bottles 😜 just in case of shortages 😜😜 Happy to hear your safe and well x

      3. It’s been like that since March last year – it’s a crime to go anywhere without a mask. Sigh. And yet our numbers keep climbing, ridiculously so! Oh well… we just keep on keeping on πŸ˜‰

        But yes, I will definitely buy more than one bottle of champers πŸ˜‰ And I’ll raise a glass to you πŸ˜‰

      4. It seems to spread regardless of the mask. It’s rife here in the uk. Just a friendly word of advice. Raise more than 1 glass to me 🀣🀣🀣 I’ve got a healthy appetite
