The “5 As” of responding to situation like Covid19 :

Acknowledge that Covid19  is real  and that it is having impact on yours and everyone’s life. Acknowledge that that you will have moments when you fall apart and feel that you don’t know how you can ever pick up and move forward again.

Accept  that your live has been changed  to some degree  in ways you did not  expect. Accept that there are certain thins which are beyond your control and you cannot do anything about them except to have a positive attitude and mindset.

Allow yourself to  take one day at a time as you adjust to the changes,  allow yourself time to feel fed up of being fed up, allow yourself to express the emotions you are experiencing at any given time. Allow yourself to seek help and not suffer in silence. Allow your self to have hope that things will get better and that this too shall pass away

Adapt to the changes .Most of us started this year making new year’s resolutions and a plan of things we want to achieve this year. Covid19 has forced us to stop, take stock of our lives and  rewrite our plan based on an uncertain future.   Though it can be challenging to adapt to this situation which is beyond our control, it is important that we don’t suffer in silence but to seek help, connect with other people so that we can share experiences and support each other.

Ask for help this can be from your family and friends or contacting the many organisations which are providing a lot of free online and telephone.

How to use your imagination to escape to Happiness Island and feel good #Escape2HappinessIsland

Right now, a lot of us are going through challenging times because of the situation we find ourselves

Over the years, I have learnt to use my imagination to escape from the stresses and challenges of life  and go to  my happiness Island.

 Happiness Island is a place you can escape to  using your creativity and imagination to experience inner peace, joy and happiness,   Being in Happiness Island allows me to experience good vibes and regain my zest for life and you too can experience that,  I now invite you to take an adventure with me.

Step 1  Best time for you to Escape to Happiness Island

Decide on the best time of the day that you are are  relaxed. (As for me, I am a morning person)   You then need to find somewhere quiet where you can clear your mind and focus.

Step 2  I am ready to experience Happiness and Joy

Take a deep breath in, and then breathe out a couple of times. Now say say the words below.

Step 3.. What does your Happiness Island look like?

Imagine your own Happiness Island using all your senses –  What is the surrounding like? What are you tasting?  What are you smelling? What are you feeling? .What are you hearing? Who is their with you? What are you doing?   What are you eating?  What songs are you listening to or dancing to?

Imagine your Island has everything that you need right now. Spend some time just enjoying your stay their. If you feel like singing sing, if you feel like dancing dance.  Just do anything that makes you feel good,

. Step 4  Be Grateful and thankful for life

Now, focus your mind on God or whoever you see as your source of help and thank them for the Gift of life and all that you have in life right now.  Say out loud at least 7 things you are grateful and thankful for them.

Not even a last kiss #StayHomeSaveLives

I have written this because of the pain I felt reading of an elderly lady who lost her husband and I could just imagine the pain she must have felt.

She was all dressed up and sat down looking out of the window with tears in her eyes.

The road seemed so quiet with no one in sight.

She took a deep breath in and released a big cry “Oh God why did this have to happen”

Tears streaming down her face, if only she could have the last kiss

She looked outside again and she saw  two black magnificent horses driven by a man dressed all in black.

They stopped in front of her window and reality hit her – her beloved husband of 40 years was in the coffin draped in red with a single rose on top of it.

She blew out a kiss, she whispered “I love you, goodbye my love, till we meet again.” She watched and kept blowing kisses as the horses move on,

She sat down thinking that this is not how it should happen, her husband Jack had so many friends and family, yet only their two children where allowed to go to the service at the crematorium because of the coronavirus.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you if you are grieving at this moment  and finding  it hard to cope as you cannot even go and  say the final goodbye to your loved one.    I pray that you have the strength to take each day as it comes and my the wonderful memories and moments you shared comfort you.
