It’s almost Thanksgiving, can you believe it? We’re supposed to go around our smaller tables and say something we are thankful for – and I would add, something we’ve learned to cope with during such a difficult year.
In my case I am thankful for my family’s health (so far 🙏) and I am learning to be patient. I truly thought that patience was a gene I was born without.
I have had to learn to let so many things go this year. Sure, I cried when almost no one was watching, but I would wear a happy face and tell everyone that only God knew why He was doing certain things. Inside, I sometimes felt as though my heart was smashed into little pieces.
As I am writing this blog, I am sitting outside in my car. We don’t have electricity in the house today or tomorrow because they are changing the electrical power on our block. I am currently waiting for the results from a COVID test I had yesterday. Results are supposed to come in 24 hours, but who is counting, right? Almost 25 hours and the clock is ticking, but I have gotten no email or text message.
I got my iPhone upgraded from 8 to the new 12! Awesome right? NOPE! WhatsApp doesn’t work well, and I have friends, family and “partners in the travel business” all over the world, and that is the best way to communicate with them. The way WhatsApp is behaving is very strange. It seems to pick and choose certain messages, senders, and receivers. Otherwise it says: “Waiting for this message. This may take a while.” That means NEVER!
Rosana, take a deep breath, pretend to enjoy the gene you were born without. Pretend you have PATIENCE- and remember that 2021 is coming soon. And no, don’t let your depression and anxiety tell you that next year could be the same or worse! Be your own best friend, be kind to yourself, and think that the worst is almost over.
If you needed to hear that, good! If you didn’t, thank you for your kindness to me!
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
