Quarantine Day 7 (for me)

This was part of my day today … reading in the sunroom. I forced myself to take the day off- something I haven’t done in a while. And though I didn’t get the creative writing started that I wanted to, I felt better than I have in a long time. Just taking the day for myself and not having to go anywhere or meet any deadline.

Here is one of the many inspiring quotes I’ve read thus far in Anne Lamott’s book Plan B.

When God is going to do something wonderful, He or She always starts with a hardship.

Now. I have to say that I hate the saying that everything happens for a reason because it often seems to diminish people’s pain and suffering. However, the above quote stood out to me because I like the idea that even amidst something horrible, there may be a future good that emerges. One that isn’t accessible in the present moment. I know some of the worst times in my life turned me into a better/kinder person. That’s not to say that those circumstances HAD to happen for my evolution, but they certainly catapulted me in that direction. I’m trying to have a similar hopeful mindset with the current situation, though it is rough.

What is helping you lately?

I hope you all are well. Much love.

One thought on “Quarantine Day 7 (for me)

  1. Tis food to ponder in the mind and heart ❤️ Romans 8:28-30. What does it mean for
    “all things to work together for good”?

    All things?
    My good?
    Now or later?
    Here on earth or in heaven?

    Then we read Hebrews 11 and we see something moving from darkness to light.

    Have a blessed week,
    Don
