Battles that aren’t worth fighting

During this quarantine, we did succeed to eat a lot more than we have expected, in the beginning. So, stake after stake, sweet after sweet, snack after snack, we did manage to put on a few pounds.

Some of us might have had a few more in plus, while some have gained just the right amount for a healthy organism at their height. But people tend to notice, and at times, make the wrong comments when they are not required.

Take my example, I went down the road to give my best friend fresh diary from the countryside (from my last weekend visit), and a group of people started making nasty comments.

I am aware that I wasn’t dressed to kill. Imagine messy-dry hair, less makeup, short pants, tee-shirt, and a pair of comfy sneakers. And here I was, on my way ready to bring my friend the vegetables, when they started laughing by my back and making comments.

At first I have ignored it and went on my way, because I had to see my friend. On the way back, I took some time to notice the ones that were blabbering on my back.

A group of people were laying on a car front while chewing on sunflower seeds and making a mess around them. And then I knew, that fighting them was not the best idea and that I need to move further.

I am not a racist person, I respect and value all persons, no matter their color, religion, or belief, but at times, gypsies can be irritant and cause trouble.

I am aware that during this quarantine I managed to gain a few pounds and look a little bit different, but that does not make me a fat person. Having 60 kg at 1.70 height is more than enough.

Nevertheless, this motivated me, and I decided to start going to the gym with one of my girlfriends. Working out at home can turn bad when there is nobody to motivate you, and you turn lazy in time.

July is going to be the month of resolutions for me and for making the right decisions for my future. In regards to the people, let them talk, I could not care less. They are just noise in the background.

It’s important to know that some fights are not ours to take on and that we should move on. Why waste energy on persons that don’t even matter and get angry over nothing?

Some battles aren’t worth fighting.

New week’s resolutions

Hello, dear readers and writers! You might ask why this weekend I haven’t posted anything. The answer is, BREAK, like from everything. I have had such a full week, been caught up in activities at work and house chores that I longed for sleep and rest during the weekend.

Nevertheless, on Saturday I took some time to visit my parents in the countryside, see my relatives and mostly evade the city and the terrible hot drought. The weather was rainy but it was beautiful and chill.

Accept life as it is and make the best of it

The best part is that I managed to find my inner peace and dance with life challenges, be open to new, and somehow, be happy with what life brings upon.

I managed to finish my treatment for stomach issues, went to the dentist, and established a permanent connection with her (or at least temporarily until my tooth problems will be fully resolved), and found a new job.

Now I have to work on night shifts for the employee notice and get ready for the new post at a different company. Plus perform training sessions and take job meetings. This will mostly be performed on a night shift.

This week will probably be full again, and I will have to face new problems but I am thankful for what life brought upon me, and for God’s favors, we always fail to say thank you and pray only when in need.

Resolutions for a new week

At the end of the day we have to be thankful for what we are now, and keep fighting for what we want to be tomorrow. And learn to begin every day with a grateful heart. Always be appreciative for what we have, many people have nothing.

At times happiness comes when we stop complaining about the troubles we have and offer thanks for the troubles we don’t have. As Oprah Winfrey said, we need to be thankful for what we have; we’ll end up having more. If we concentrate on what we don’t have, we will never, ever have enough.

Be true to yourself, help others, make each day your masterpiece, make friendship a fine art, drink deeply from good books – especially the Bible, build a shelter against a rainy day, give thanks for your blessings and pray for guidance every day.
