REBLOG: Please read this wonderful post from Beetleypete. ❤
Tomorrow sees the swearing-in of a new President of The United States. Even allowing for the issues surrounding the recent protest in Washington D.C. and the risk of more disturbances during the inauguration, that must feel like a new beginning to most of my American blogging friends.

Rory, over at A Guy Called Bloke saw a quote that I posted and shared the lovely quote below with me. I loved it so much I wanted to be sure to share it with you!
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
Some days Hope is too burdensome an idea Existence is thick and fat This endeavor cumbersome oppressive With clouded psyche and trembling fingers I tuck a sliver of hope in a pocket Optimism saved away for tomorrow Belief A piece of it shining beckoning to light my way Copyright (C) 2020 Penny Wilson *This piece is something that I've been kicking around for a while. I keep coming back to it, tweaking it. I'm not sure that it conveys what I was trying to express, but regardless, I hope you enjoyed it. Penny <3
