I relaxed in my rocking chair, surveyed my surroundings.
It made me feel safe. I am grateful for the security and warmth of my new home.

I managed to buy face shield
It means that I can probably stop being so sensitive to the dust in the air when I do wear it

Today, while I am surfing the internet and using youtube, I accidentally see a song suggested by Youtube. The song is so great with the catchy rhythm.
The lyrics of this song brings me to some old memories. Well if you follow my posts, you may think that I am the nostalgic. I think it is true. But now I keep a new point of view for nostalgia. Recently, I am re-examing all of my past, memories, old behaviours to improve myself. Today I also finish the 10-days intense challenge of gratitude. I feel better from the time I started using this platform. Personally, I will keep using it.

Enjoying the clean and tidied house this evening and the habit of weekly housecleaning together with Myleva.
Thankful for peace in my household with her. Heard a radio broadcast today describing the challenges some couples are having during lockdown.

Katharine shared her personal story with our AMP group.
By sharing her story, she helped me to see similarities with my own and motivated me to reach for a level of mindfullness that would improve my life.

Today I find that the chemical used in my thesis is not in good condition. It is no longer pure.
Fortunately, I discover that thing soon, so I can correct and limit the errors for my experiment results

Our new chapter president made me feel a part of when she responded positively to my congrats email.
I thanked her for her communications and organizational skills. Yes, and I offered my help to her.

I'm currently looking for a new place to live, and I'm doing this in my second language. I'm pretty fluent at it, but sometimes when it comes to major purchases I'd rather have someone look over my shoulder. A really good friend of mine is helping me with the paperwork and has helped me avoid a potentially difficult landlord.
Thanks to him, I won't have to shell out a lot of money for a crazy housing situation. He's still helping me now with a new contract. Crossing fingers that this is the one.

I was invited to a lunch cook-out with my daughter for Mothers Day. It was the first time I had visited in nine weeks due to Covid 19. We observed social distancing outside and wore our masks inside. My granddaughter wore her special dress to greet me with hugs.
It reminded me that I am not alone.

My parents bought back a different thing for our dinner
It means a lot to me because we get to try something different every once in a while even though they tend to go with the same thing most of the time. It's not as boring with a different dish today

Today,I step out my comfortable zone with my courage and bravery.
I am on the way to find out my path and today, I get more information and create a new node in my network. Besides, after consideration, I think I will not follow the academic path, getting the PhD degree. Maybe..

Took a day off of work
That it is important to create some distance from my work especially in this time. Working in healthcare in any form is hard right now.

Today, the weather in my city is boiling hot and humid. An uncomfortable feeling surrounds me because of the weather.
However, under the weather, I drink more water than other days. You know that drinking more water is helpful to keep your health strong. Ps: to whom is reading this post, I hope that you will stay strong and get a good immunity to fight back the COVID 19 outbreak.

My good friend and I were having a beer for the first time since the quarantine was enacted and we met the owners of the bar. They are an Argentine and Venezuelan couple who live in Spain with us. They overheard us speak in English and told us that their heart was in Connecticut. It was so cute and sweet. They then told us all about their travels and how people in our country was so good to them. I immediately felt tears. I do love the US, yet I know it's very flawed. In spite of it all, they said such kind things and they treated us so well. I had a weird day and I was feeling a lot of things. But I'm so glad I was able to meet this couple. Visas, borders, passports don't tell anything about who you are. We all should be able to travel and live and see the common humanity within us. I would have hugged them if we didn't need to physically distance.
It made me see the beauty in all of the pain. Quarantine is rough for everyone.

Healthcare workers who are putting themselves in potentially dangerous situations in order to save and help the rest of society.
This means that people are not losing their lives. My Grandmother was cared for by these people when she fell ill with COVID-19. It makes me feel indebted to these individuals also. How do I take action to improve their lives when the pandemic has improved?

My manager gives me space and freedom to do meaningful work.
I feel trusted, empowered, and very capable. This affirms that the energy I put into our relationship is worthwhile.

Today, I met my old teacher. We talked together, talk about some plans, some reasons, some thoughts. She is the person I respect truly.
She encourages me to overcome this hard time and analyze the problems I am facing. Recently, I realize that failure is not bad because at least it makes me see some things important or someone who really cares about me. PS: I hope that other users will find their gratitude in their life. Hope that you all will solve greatly your problem and be kind.

Today I gave advice to my special friend. She is younger than me. Her perception about loving someone is still simple and is inclined to control the person she cared about. I hope that shewill learn successfully how to love truly someone.
I smiled when she thanked me. Seeing her, i remember the old time I had behaviors like her. I have ever had a memorable adolesence with my mistakes causing pain to people who love me and so do I.

My wife takes the lead in our daughter’s remote learning. She gives me the time and space to work.
I am able to spend time at work and relax

My mother cooked and took time to prepare the ingredients to cook beforehand
This means that we get to have more than usual to eat and we won't be hungry later tonight, and its healthier than buying from outside!
