Sunday thoughts

Lately, I got a pause from the workout routine and from the house chores, because I simply felt the need to do so. It’s only for this weekend, but I collapsed and lost all my energy. My entire body hurts and I got muscle soreness from all the training and house chores.

Plus, I started to feel like a cold is getting me again after the Friday grocery session. I got so used to being sick and to be honest, I am tired of trying to comfort myself, drinking tea, and stuffing myself with over the counter medicines. I just want to escape this cold that keeps reappearing over and over again.

Today, I rebelled. After my work schedule I opened a cold bottle of non-alcoholic raspberry beer, and enjoyed a nice spoon of vanilla-strawberry ice cream. And Dem, it was delicious! 😌

Then, I went in the balcony, looked and the blue sky, immersed in the sun rays. Opened out wide the windows and took a deep breath of the half polluted air. I heard the kids yelling with joy in the park, saw the still green trees, the people.

I took some time for myself after the work schedule, had a hot bath, enjoyed a good face mask, and simply relaxed. Closed my eyes and listened to piano music.

If I am not going to enjoy the things that I like now, when I am young, then when? I will probably hate being an old grumpy lady, blaming everything that she did not have the courage to do in the early years of life. I am not like that.

I am tired of running away from this cold, missing what I like. If it is to get me, then let it get me, I am not going to run away again. I am going to face it.

A few words

At some point, everybody is getting tired of the quarantine, old people, young people. We are all advised to follow the regulations and stay at home, stay safe. But until when? It’s okay to get out, but in the limits of the regulations.

I used to judge the old people, the kids, thinking about why are they going out in the open space when all the rules advise them not to do it?

As an old person, in your last years of life, you may think this could be the last time. The last breath that you are going to take, the last time when you enjoy the sunburn, the last time when you can barely hear the noise.

As a younger person, you would like to get out, to play, to discover and explore. The tiny apartments with small colored walls can’t be the only universe you live within. You would like to go out and play in the wide-open, to enjoy the world.

I believe it’s better for all of us, to stop being judgmental. The reasons that might appear dumb to most of us might mean the world to other persons, even if they are not the wisest ones out there.

We need to learn from this experience and get the good things out of it. If we always keep our minds focused on the media, the ongoing news, always stressed out, and panicked it’s not going to do us any good. We are going to get ill, and not because of the pandemic, but because of our choices.

It’s important to be careful, pay attention to the rules, respect them as much as you can. But do take your own moment of rebellion and escape this „prison” once in a while. Love yourself and remember to smile, cherish life, with good and bad.

Quotes about laziness and days of comfort

So, today being Sunday I have to be honest with you, my dear readers and recognize. Today, I am lazy.

I know that tomorrow is Monday again and a new week is about to start but I just want to dwell in the present and enjoy the moments of relaxation, writing a new post on WordPress while enjoying a hot cup of tea.

As you might have figure it out from the title, today’s post is about laziness and days of comfort, like Sunday. In this post I am going to share with you quotes, just like I used you in my previous posts. Hope you enjoy them, and have a great Sunday!

Sunday thoughts wrapped in a beautiful „YOU”

Hello, guys!

It’s been a while since I could not find the time to write my thoughts in here, on my personal page, in Kate’s World. I am really sorry, in front of you and in front of me. I am saying this because it’s been so long and I so much longed to be in here, to be writing again.

As you might think, the last few months were really busy for me. I was caught struggling between work and family, between a break and me. But, to be 100% fair, there was no ME lately, and no break as you might guess.

It took me a while to figure it out, to understand. In this big, crazy world we always concern about work&about tasks, about people and their reactions, about what they might think or feel about us.

But when should we be concerned about ourselves, when should we be on the first place?

When was the last time you asked yourself if you enjoyed your company, when was the last time you asked yourself if you liked that movie, or if you really liked that nasty food? When did you really felt comfortable enough to laugh out loud, when was the last time you were true to yourself?

Good questions you may say. But do we know the answers to these realities? Yes we do. And within ourselves we regret the choices that we made in the past and maybe today.

Be the change that you want to see in others

My idea would be that in every single week we should chose a time to be frank to ourselves, to do something that we love, to be our best version of „ME” that is hidden somewhere inside us.

Start with baby steps, chose an easier task which is convenient for the moment and for you. Do exactly the thing that defines you and says „This is me” better than anything.

Do you like singing in a cold shower early in the morning? Then do it. Do you enjoy listening to slow jazz music with a glass of sweet wine and a good book in your lap? What is stopping you?  Do you love taking small walks on the road with loud music in your headphones? Then do it.

Take 5-10 minutes of your time and do something that you really love doing, something that really satisfies you and makes you happy. Forget about what people think or talk, because they will never stop.

So what if the neighbors will be awake earlier in the morning from the noises of your crazy song and the drops of clear water? They aren’t going to stop late in the night that Dem drill anyway.

So what if there will be persons who will make funny faces at you while you walk to nowhere in your life’s voyage with noisy rock music in your ears? It is your choice not their and they don’t have any right to tell you what is better to do or not to do.

Each and every one of us has a cross to bear and a path to follow in this short life. Take what is rightfully yours and enjoy your time while you can. Stop thinking about what people will say or think, because people are people and you can’t come to an end with them.

The only person who you should think often, love and cherish is yourself. At the end of the day, what really matters is what you accomplished and how happy YOU are. The rest is just dust in the wind.

Think about that. Think About YOU!
