Although we are still attempting to live through the new norms created by Covid-19, it is still a struggle for many to adapt. Back to school is not as seamless as it used to be as a lot of parents are opting for online learning for the children. We have to keep wearing our masks and keep our distances. Without hands shaking and hugs, greeting friends are no longer as warm as they used to be. Many are still out of work and are dealing with financial issues.
This month, as I reflect on how Covid-19 has impacted our lives, I have decided to turn all my struggles into gifts. Regardless of what I am going through, I will not let it take me down, but I will find a way to conquer it.
If you are reading my post today, I hope you can take a look at your own struggles and turn them into strengths or gifts as well.
Time is still uncertain, and we have to live our lives as normally as we can. It’s not going to be easy as we must leave our comfort zone and do things differently. Learning is an active and continual process. If we keep that in mind, we will overcome any challenges.
May we become better this month. Let’s speak from the heart and share our stories to inspire others. Let’s appreciate the time with our loved ones and keep in touch with those who are far. Let’s enjoy every single minute and realize the present moment is truly our gift.
Have a blessed month of September 2020.
Like they said, what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. Our struggles can help us. We should learn from them and turn them to an advantage.
I agree, Jon, I always think there is strength and learning from our struggles.
Though this blog post is so damn motivating and interesting one..glad you shared such valuable information with us..great work though…
Thanks for your feedback!
I just want to work on myself and becoming a better version of who I am.
It’s a daily process, Krysten!
This is so motivating. Exactly what we all need nowadays.
We have to lift each other up, Rose Ann!
Here’s hoping the rest of September will be hopeful and amazing.
I hope for the same.
You are right that remaining under our new normal is not going to be easy. So many are getting weary of this new life for good reason. But we still have to stay positive or it will destroy us. September is going to be a bumpy ride for our family, but we’ve got it! Staying positive and encouraging to each other helps the tone, which helps us to thrive no matter what the circumstances are around us!
I could not agree more, Marie, together, we will thrive.
This is the exact outlook I have for the month.
I am glad to hear that, Rachel!
This was beautifully motivating and a great reminder to start the final third of the year!
Thank you, Kat!
This is so overwhelming. Our life has changed so much because of this pandemic that sometimes it’s just frustrating. It’s like repeating the day everyday for a large amount of time. I hope we can get through this.
I am positive we will, Jessica!
I didn’t know in America people are deciding to keep kids at home for online learning! Here in England everyone’s gone back 😉
Like many kids here, in the U.SA, my younger daughter is doing virtual schooling.
I was just thinking about this a few moments ago. The economy is crashing, there’s a hike in prices and people have financial issues. It’s really overwhelming but with Christ on our side, we will overcome.
Best wishes for you and your family this September. I am sure this month will be very special
Wishing you the best as well, Lyosha!
It’s been overwhelming. I’ve tried to be low key about it but it has been such a struggle coz of everything that has been happening.
I can understand, Kathy!
Such a beautiful reminder. It’s important that we still count our blessings even through the toughest times. We can past this trial and conquer!
So true, Alyssa!
Yes, it’s been difficult coping with the new norm. I work in a covid unit and it has been crazy. It’s been hard to navigate wanting to explore and experience things like I used to .
I can relate, Jules!
I’ve been saying this since the beginning. Our struggles make us who we are. We choose how to see the World. Is the glass half full or half empty? I choose half full!
I choose half full too, Di
When I was young and no experience in life, I thought how unfair that I experienced hardships in life. After a few years of being patient, now I can look back and can proudly say that struggles are the best thing that happened to me. It made me a better person I am proudly now.
We all need to struggle and find our own way up!
So true and powerful, Blair!
I start my day thanking God for waking me up and keeping my family safe through the night. This pandemic is wrecking havoc on my mental well being. I try my best to keep busy, stay positive and not watch the news.
Being purposefully busy can help, Kristine.
What a wonderful uplifting post Marjie. Most people play the poor me, this is so hard game. However, we are all in this together. This is a new way of life we have to learn how to navigate. Think of the ways you are struggling and find a way to fix it.
Absolutely, Michele, together, we will find a solution.
Yes this moment is our gift. We all should appreciate the time we are spending with our loved ones. And we all should take care of our neighbours and friends as well.
It’s been 6 months since we’re on a lockdown. But yeah, we don’t give up to do things were we will be able to cope up on this unprecedented happenings.
I agree!! It is really right to let our struggles hone us into becoming a better person
What a beautiful post. Even though we are facing difficult times, you have to see the little blessings that are happening every day. That is how I’m living right now.
I’m a little low today and your article boosted my spirits. Thank you.
This is a great outlook to have. Onwards!
