Happy Wednesday, my friends!

This year has been crazy. It seems like in addition to the pandemic and hatred of the world, which is enough to weigh on anyone’s emotions, life has just decided to add to the chaos and heartache.

I can only speak for those I know, but since the pandemic, my best friend moved 10 hours away, my Arizona bestie’s dog died, her grandfather also died, Neil had a health scare, my cousin’s husband was diagnosed with brain cancer, I won’t go into detail but I’m concerned for the mental health of a family member, my aunt had to put her dog down, and my adopted mother-in-law had to have emergency heart surgery, and I lost my job.

Now I know, there’s a lot of people out there who have it worse, and I do not mean to complain, but somedays I’m barely holding it together.

I’ve been dancing a lot lately to relieve some of this stress. I’ve been writing. My novel is coming along quite nicely. I’m almost finished Chapter 3!!! Plus I’ve written lots of ideas. I have a notebook full of them!

I’ve been focusing on the little things and taking the time to do the things I really enjoy doing. Life’s too short to be miserable, and I’m tired of dwelling on all of the negativity that seems to be surrounding me lately.

I hope all of you are safe and well, and I promise to get back to writing more uplifting & inspiring posts, because that’s what Life Lessons From Around The Dinner Table is all about, and we all know love is always the answer, no matter the question! ❀

Love & life lessons,

Kristian

    Despite the wind and rain, they couldn’t remove the smile on her face…

    I guess you inadvertently missed your window of opportunity? 😁😏

    Reblogged this on Notes and commented:
    Selfies, sunsets, moons, art… if that is how someone feels confused and/or sad, then I’d prefer to stay that sad beautifully forever. Cheers πŸ™‚

    Every time the world weighs you down, we will be there to lift you up. When your heart loses its song, we will sing to you. When worries wrinkle your brow, we will kiss them away. And when you feel you cannot go on, we will carry you. You are a special women with indominable strength of character. You sunny days are ahead, but until then you can always borrow my umbrella! Love you Kristian!

  6. You forgot to mention that you’ve been taking funky photos to share with us to cheer us up 😊 I know what you mean, it seems like one thing after another at the moment. I guess the on positive thing is that we are all in this together, and together we will get through. Even here in New Zealand where the virus is kinda under control (we’ve had a bunch of cases in the last few days which has put up into lockdown again), things are tough for businesses, and everyday life just seems to more difficult than before, but I believe it is creating a stronger sense of community and people are remembering what is really important again – friends, family, and the things we love doing. Good luck with your book!! I’m trying out Scrivener, which is a software for organising your first draft. They have a 30 day free trial, so perhaps have a look. I think it has great potential for stopping us writers spreading our manuscripts all over the living room floor!!!
    Stay strong. You are not alone xx

      Oh, yeah, & taking TONS of pictures!!

      Thank you, Wendy. I’m ashamed of some of my fellow Americans, but you’re right, the world is in this together. It’s a nice reminder, knowing I’m not alone.

      I will check out Scrivener. Thank you for the recommendation! πŸ€—β€
