Hello There May

Happy new month my beautiful peoples. April dragged slowly for me as I’m sure everyone has been in the same boat. I can’t believe May is here and another month starts all over again. I can’t believe that I stayed home half of March and all of April; self-isolating is the new norm now in our lives. I hope and pray that we are soon on the road to recovery. I hope that this pandemic dissipates and we can all begin to re-assume our life and integrate back into society and into each other’s lives.

I cannot wait to sit in a restaurant and have an awesome meal and have beautiful conversations; amongst other people, again.

I cannot wait to be able to sit in a park without worrying that there’s a chance that I may get ticketed for sitting too closely with my loved ones.

I cannot wait to get back to work and be able to hug friends and sit side by side with my co-workers and not worry about catching anything.

I pray that we progress forward and stay home this month, so we can have a chance at summer.

I’m looking at the sunny side now, where we all defeat this tragedy and hope to see a brighter month.

I found this quote and so fitting for the month of May :

The world’s favorite season is the spring. All things seem possible in May

–  Edwin Way Teale

So please let it be possible, that on this new fresh start, let it be the beginning of the ending, we so desperately need.

What to do and NOT do, during Turbulence

On our delayed flight from Toronto, to Punta Cana, we experienced a couple of hiccups. Major hiccups. Okay, scary-ass turbulence to be exact!

 

I know that all of us who have traveled, this is a common thing. We expect this once in a while, but when it does happen, you hope for it to be not so bad.

Well, our turbulence made women scream and grown-ass men, groan. Like a deep scared out of their wits-didn’t-mean-to-let-my-emotions-out groan.

The turbulence was so scary I had to zone out completely. This is not an easy task for a person who suffers from anxiety.

As the airplane bobbled up and then down suddenly,(this happened 3xs) I put on my ear pods and my ears exploded with Bruno Mars – “Versace on the floor”. I thought that would calm me down, but it didn’t.

So I changed the music to my favorite Maroon 5 – “Memories” Um, nope, not a good idea.

I turned it off and concentrated on my prayers. Over and over again, I said the Latin prayer my mom made me memorize.

It finally calmed me down.

I looked across from me, at my husband, who was already staring at me.

We were both sitting on aisle seats, so I couldn’t touch him unless I pried the grip of life from my armrest. I didn’t.

I sat there and closed my eyes. Horrified and wished that the pilot loved his life, the way we all did.

I said to myself as I listened to everyone panic, that at the end of this horror movie, I would compile a little list.

So I made this list of “What to do and NOT do, during Turbulence:

  • Do not freak me the hell out with your screaming, Jesus Christ!
  • Do not scream “oh my God’ a million times so I can hear you. Please keep that to yourself.
  • Do not whisper to yourself “we are going to die” because I friggin can still hear you!
  • Do not whimper quietly to yourself, guess what? I can still hear you!
  • Do say the Lord’s prayer silently in your head over and over and over again. (that’s what I did)
  • Do recite the Latin prayer that your mother taught you even though you have no idea what it means. (sorry if your mom didn’t teach you the Latin prayer)
  • Don’t think negative thoughts.
  • Do fill your mind with happy happy happy ass thoughts!
  • Do promise yourself that if this goes away, you’ll tolerate your hubby being crabby.
  • Do break that promise as soon as you land. LOL

When we landed I swear to God, everyone was cheering. Like actually cheering a relief-of-life- cheering.

I was thinking oh Lord, we have to be back on the plane in 8 days. Help me… (silently crying inside myself)

There you go folks, just thought I’d give you the best advice possible.

Happy travels!

ps. If you have any advice to add to my list, please drop me a comment!

Hello April

“Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of overcoming it.”

– Helen Keller –

It is a new month and I welcome April as a new chance at hope.

In hopes that we overcome what has come into our lives and unite together to #flattenthecurve

I hope that everyone does their part in #selfisolation and #selfquarantine and #selfdistancing and we can all get through this and hopefully get a chance to experience summer in it’s normal state. (I’m hoping)

Here’s hoping we all rise from this soon.

Be safe everyone

And let’s re-set 🤍
