Hello, everyone. This is Ana writing a blog after months, but I will try to keep this short. It’s been a rough year on a personal, local, national, and global level. I’m sure this year has been a tough one for you too, and we’re all in the same boat. There are so many controversial issues in America that I am not going to touch on them.
For me, I also hear about how terrible things are back in my parent’s country. It’s a lot to take in, and I haven’t had motivation to write in my blog for the very same reason. I keep thinking, What can I add to the conversation? What can I suggest or advise? Me. I don’t know.
I won’t go into any personal struggles at this moment, but this year has been extremely challenging. All I can say is that I hope you’re hanging in there. Try to keep an exercising schedule, eat healthier, take your supplements, and find a hobby to help you mentally and physically. For example, I confide in reading the Bible and prayer. It has helped me to stay collected and overcome many things in my mind and life.
I had a few plans this year, but none of them were executed as planned. And that’s hugely frustrating for me. But I’ve learned to forgive myself a bit more because people aren’t as forgiving. They want results. They don’t want to hear about the struggles.
So that’s my other piece of advice, be considerate and forgiving to yourself because your health, spiritual, and mental state come first. If we can polish these, then we can overcome much. That’s where I am at, at this moment. I have even stalled my writing plans. But I will jump back on it soon! I hope you have a wonderful December and end of the year.
Be kind to yourself first so that you may be kind to others too.
What are you doing to stay motivated during this pandemic issue? Let me know.
