Due to a very gloomy outlook because of the epidemic and all the crazy things happening in the world, Labor Day weekend this year was quite different. I didn’t participate in barbecuing and hanging out with people. For the first time, I took time for myself to meditate over things and ask questions about why and what drives these negative things to happen all the time. It’s crazy!
I also took the time for myself to draw things that make me comfortable. By doing this, I hope to open myself up to try new things and do new and better things with my art. Change can be challenging, but it is simply just learning to understand what’s important. Sometimes we forget that with all the craziness in life.
With everything closed because of the pandemic, there wasn’t much to do, which is sometimes okay. I absolutely took advantage of going to the park at the university, which is about to open up again. It was very quiet, so I got to meditate outside as well, so that was a bonus for me.
I also took some time off from social media, with the exception of posting things that needed to be posted. Sometimes, too much internet is not good for your mind. When there’s way too much information coming at you from all directions at a thousand miles per hour, it can be overwhelming, especially when you’re dealing with your own life as well. I advise people or anybody to try out meditation take time for yourself. These little things in life can help improve the quality of your life and keep you in a positive mindset, especially when things are looking dismal.
