You’re Not In Charge

Hello, my WordPress community. 🙂  I know you haven’t heard much of me lately and I apologize for that. In the crazy reality of today’s world, I hope that all of you are well and are staying safe.

I am well. I took a few days off work and just spent some quiet time at home, sleeping late, sewing masks, taking naps and catching up on my TV shows.

Being an introvert, spending time alone, at home, is not as hard on me as it would be on some people. I use this quiet time to recharge. I think that the current state of the world has had me stressed. (no big surprise there, right?) So quiet and rest is just what I’ve needed.

A few of you have reached out wondering about me.  I don’t mean to worry anyone.  I so appreciate your thoughtfulness! ❤  I am mostly doing alright.  I think that like a lot of people, are in disbelief about the state of the world.  All we can do, is all we can do, right?

I think that the best advice I would give anyone struggling to come to terms with the pandemic, is to simply tell them to find their purpose.  With purpose, you will always move forward, not sit dwelling on the what ifs.  It’s not easy to smile and be optimistic on some days, I get that.  Just Do What You Can.  Leave the rest to your higher power.  You’re not in charge, remember?

Be well and stay safe my friends.

Thank you for joining me on this journey.  ❤  Penny

  1. Nice to hear from you, Penny. The state of the world is making it difficult to cope with all the moving parts right now. I am struggling with the home schooling, full time work and running the house.

  2. I was one of those friends concerned about you and your absence. I was about to reach out when you resumed posting. Thank you for explaining your absence. That time off sounds like a good idea. You have such a positive attitude. I appreciate your reminder to focus on our purpose, on using our God-given talents to make a difference. Thank you, dear Penny. Be safe. Be well. And know that I value you.
