Keeping Sane - The Covid -19 Realities

โ€œOnly the strong will come out of all this, with little or no scars that will make them even stronger! โ€ย 

#Thinkingoutloud

One of the major things everyone needs to do in these times and all times (now that I think about it ) is to #keepsane. As simple as that may sound, I’m sure just about everyone would agree with me that this is becoming a rare commodity recently!

Renowned businessman and personal development guru Jim Rohn said that you’re the average of the five people you spend most time with. I realize that it’s not just the people one chooses to relate with closely but places often visited are also included. Before you snap at me about not going out with the lockdown order or not being an outdoorsy person, let me show you what I mean.

You go to more places in your mind than any physical means of transportation can take you! The route to these places in your mind is your imagination and the fuel for this particular means of transport is the information that you expose yourself to. You’re constantly consuming information with your sense organs round the clock! You fuel your imagination from different sources – people you interact with, what you listen to, watch and read.

So you see the need to consciously take charge of keeping sane? With the whole world battling the Covid-19 pandemic, so many people have decided to be a fear peddling hub, keeping score of who got hacked down by it, sharing all sorts about how things are going to get so awfully bad and in fact how the whole world would end!

As much as I don’t want to be naive about goings-on, I don’t want to culture negativity in my mind! I choose to keep sane. So if you’re like me, you want to cut down on the volume of pandemic matters information you avail yourself with and ultimately digest in this season. #Chooseyourcontent! Here’s why

Only the strong will come out of all this, with little or no scars that will make them even stronger! Daniel 11:32 confirms it: ๐‘๐‘ข๐‘ก ๐‘กโ„Ž๐‘’ ๐‘๐‘’๐‘œ๐‘๐‘™๐‘’ ๐‘กโ„Ž๐‘Ž๐‘ก ๐‘‘๐‘œ ๐‘˜๐‘›๐‘œ๐‘ค ๐‘กโ„Ž๐‘’๐‘–๐‘Ÿ ๐บ๐‘œ๐‘‘ ๐‘ โ„Ž๐‘Ž๐‘™๐‘™ ๐‘๐‘’ ๐‘ ๐‘ก๐‘Ÿ๐‘œ๐‘›๐‘”, ๐‘Ž๐‘›๐‘‘ ๐‘‘๐‘œ ๐‘’๐‘ฅ๐‘๐‘™๐‘œ๐‘–๐‘ก๐‘ . Such strong minds are the ones who would keep re-inventing themselves to stay on top of their game. Trust me if this is your focus, you won’t have room to harbor extra information that doesn’t move you forward. Accusing me of living in a bubble? โ™€๏ธ Well then, customize that bubble! ๐Ÿผ

โš ๏ธ ๐—–๐—ต๐—ผ๐—ผ๐˜€๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ต๐—ผ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—ฒ! Now is the time to bond with those you love, hug your spouse, play with your kids, call that long lost friend… Hand pick the people you hang around – keep away from freelance Covid-19 reporters; they will drag you into their city – Fearville and nothing thrives in that address!

โš ๏ธ๐—–๐—ต๐—ผ๐—ผ๐˜€๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—ฒ! The content you digest, books you read, what you watch on TV or choose to be entertained with. You should go for more uplifting and empowering ones, your mind needs it!

In all of this, choose to be safe and keeping your sanity, CHOOSE YOU! Be obsessed about making the best of all that is going on now; because there will be life after this era and YOU are the biggest asset required to come out on the other side victorious – SANE YOU!

  1. Thank you and God bless. The head spins all the time and the heart flips constantly but courage is not the absence of fear but the ability to thrive in the midst of it (fear).
