Save a friend!

Save a friend!

So this is how I feel about COVID right now. Armed and ready to kick its backside from here to kingdom come.

This is also how I feel about the stupid people who care only about their own selves and disregard others affected by this very serious thing going on. I’ll certainly be ready to send you to the other side of my street with my ammunition of water spray. (Clearly I’m not a violent person, but I could be tempted to water spray you!)

Today I found out how someone close to a friend cannot see her mother in a old aged home. but what’s worse is that all in the home are not allowed out of their room to mix.

If people tell me that’s ok then really there are no hearts inside them.

It’s bad enough being separated from your loved ones but to stay in your room and not able to socially bubble with those in the very same home. That’s just purely cruel.

It’s cruel of all the ignorant people who can’t give up their social lives for a bit to get ahead of this.

It’s not great being less physically social , it’s not great not being able to go out and let your hair down etc etc. But seriously are all lives that shallow that people cannot think beyond themselves?

I follow all the social distancing, even more strongly than I probably need to. But I do that because I want to help stop it’s spread.

I don’t want to be part of the problem. I don’t want my children to experience it and I don’t want their children to either.

So I’m ready here, Captain Isa, with my force of pretend people at Cocoon ready to blast this thing away.

Join the revolution, stop the conspiracy theories, just let’s all stop thinking about our social media a bit and start thinking about our lives too and those around us. Do something positive today.

Save a friend.

Lost my Shizzle

Lost my Shizzle

I’ve just lost my shizzle on my real person Facebook. Gave my two cents worth about how deep inside I’m truly feeling.

It’s after midnight and I should be asleep, but I can’t. I just want to cry and if I start, I know I won’t stop.

Despite how positive I can be a lot of the time, I’m also pretty human and also feel the same things others do.

I just “manage” my feelings differently.

Today I am raw.

I’m hurting so much in my heart and I don’t know that there is an end to it.

We may be virtual characters but we are also all people.

I’m scared, and my heart is breaking.

I used to pray. I actually do have strong beliefs and have forgotten how to. I’m not sure if anyone listens but it’s worth giving it a go.

I’ll be ok tomorrow. Some days I just need to let it out. Recover and then carry on.

Here is what I wrote.

Very spooky when I watched Contagion earlier. Totally replicates what’s going on now.

Our lives aren’t going back to normal any time soon, we are heading towards a new normal.

So the question is what next?

I’m not planning on accepting being locked away in my four walls without human contact with my children and friends for god knows how long, working! For what? What are we working towards? This isn’t here for a season, this is here for a long haul.

I had better plans for my life before I eventually die.

I never expected to be wishing for the day “it’s all over and normal again”.

Life feels completely changing and for all you out there not saving your money but flagrantly spending it.

The new tv, sneakers, state of the art phone etc is pretty wasted when all you currently have are your four walls. Potentially in a year not able to keep a roof over your heads etc.

Start saving and thinking about what happens next. Because it won’t be that dream you had 12 months ago.

Facts are the economy is going to suffer hugely and we are going to head toward the biggest recession globally our lifetimes have seen.

The waste of money you make today is your loss tomorrow.

As I said, I’m not being in these four walls indefinitely. I’m not accepting that as my future.

So bloody stay home and stop spreading this BS !

All dressed up and nowhere to go

All dressed up and nowhere to go

A few weeks ago in my reality there was a clothing sale on in one of the stores I like to shop at. I had an online shop moment and bought myself some new tops.

Last night I sat here wondering why on Earth I needed those new tops and when I’ll get the opportunity to even wear them.The real answer is, no one knows. None the less I still bought them. I don’t even know why.

One part of me sees a sale and thinks yeah go for it. The other part logically says hold back because any spare money right now really needs to be saved.

The world right now is an odd place and we really don’t know what we are going to face economically in the months, maybe years ahead. So I guess the question we need to ask ourselves is really do we need it? What’s the sacrifice we make for that outfit?

I don’t know the answers but what I do understand is that economically we must keep some normal going. But realistically we must also make sure we save what we have in case of any recession coming.

The easiest way we do this, is live our reality in readiness, but in our virtual know we can escape to normality. I never thought I’d ever say this.

Well, that’s how I’m doing it.

How are you living yours?
