Never Grow Up

When I was young I was in a rush to grow up, believing that I can do whatever I want, whenever I want— it was all a lie.

I thought everything was better when you get to decide for your own, I ended up regretting every decisions I have made.

Looking back on it, everything was so simple. School was awful but at least there was a concrete destination. Living in this real world that we’re unaware of where it will lead us is terrifying— to have the feeling of ending up to nowhere is what makes it scary.

I wish to go back to those days where life was simple, I wish I didn’t take for granted those years, I wish I lived in the moment.


I had these thoughts while listening to Taylor Swift’s Never Grow Up. This song brings back nostalgia over my childhood, this song also makes me sad in a way that I miss everything back then when life was stress-free and kind of simple.

Secondary

Always behind of someone better
maybe good enough for a side-glance
but never chosen to be a winner,
just lucky enough to be given a chance.

Just like orange, green and violet
outcome of mixtures of colors
not the favorites and easy to forget
but the most radiant to others.

6 Positive Habits to Maintain After the Pandemic

The pandemic forced all of us to make adaptations in our daily lives. We had to find new ways to work, exercise, educate our children, shop, socialize, and relieve stress. While adopting these changes hasn’t been easy, people have picked up some excellent habits as a result. Don’t let these positive behaviors disappear with the pandemic! Here are some great habits to hang onto even after the coronavirus is over.


Practice Self-Care at Home

The pandemic helped many of us realize that we don’t need to take a vacation or a trip to the spa for self-care. There are endless ways to practice self-care at home! Do yoga, cook a healthy meal, take a hot bath, try meditation, or create a calming evening routine. Cleansing your home of bad energy will also serve your self-care goals, especially if spending most of your time around the house these days. Redfin suggests transforming your home into a vibrant, rejuvenating space by cleaning, decluttering, and opening the windows to let fresh air flow through your space.

Make Time for Fun

Having fun is an essential element of any self-care routine. Although the pandemic stole many of our favorite pastimes, it opened the door to new types of fun. People picked up new hobbies, discovered new passions, and explored different types of entertainment.

For example, video games skyrocketed in popularity during COVID-19! Playing online video games is an excellent way to connect with friends and make new ones when you can’t go out and socialize in person. If you want to jump on the bandwagon, make sure your internet connection can handle online gaming. A fiber-optic connection from a provider like Verizon will minimize buffering and ensure your games run smoothly.

Spend More Time Outside

Looking to get out of the house? Head into the great outdoors! Nature offers excellent refuge from the stuffy interior of our homes during the pandemic. Plus, it’s easy to practice social distancing when we have plenty of space to spread out and steer clear of others. Spending time in natural environments is fantastic for our mental health, so try to maintain this habit going forward.

Pursue Your Passions

Making the switch to remote work—or losing work altogether—has prompted many people to pursue their passions and start home-based businesses. Starting your own business is an exciting way to earn a living and enjoy greater freedom in your professional life. If you’re preparing to launch a business right now, make sure you do it right! Forming an LLC can help you tackle your legal requirements and protect your personal assets from business debts or liabilities. Online formation services can help you cost-effectively navigate the steps involved in filing an LLC in your state.

Support Local Businesses

Remember to support other small businesses too! Many small businesses are still struggling to stay afloat in the wake of the lockdown, and your patronage can help them out. These small businesses provide jobs to your neighbors and keep money in your local economy. Whenever possible, buy your products from small businesses instead of big-box stores and major chains.

Wash Your Hands

It’s no secret that the pandemic has encouraged all of us to prioritize personal hygiene. In fact, 90% of Americans reported washing their hands more thoroughly after the outbreak. Frequent hand washing is a trend that can reduce rates of infection for numerous illnesses beyond COVID-19, including the common cold and the seasonal flu. Keeping your hands clean is one of the best ways to prevent illness and avoid spreading germs to others, so keep it up!

While no one can dispute the negative ramifications of the pandemic, this crisis has encouraged people around the world to pick up healthy habits and make positive lifestyle changes. Many of these trends have the potential to improve your health, happiness, and financial wellness into the future! So what positive changes have you noticed during the pandemic that you’d like to keep?

“Accountability Over Resiliency”

Advertisements

Another storm had passed in the Philippines and out of so many tragedies and catastrophe Filipinos had experienced, you could still see them smiling during and after all the bad things that had happened. This is one of the many proud traits that Filipinos have— their resiliency. The ability to bounce back from something so tragic like it never happened, as if they were so used to it, like they were knocked down, they get up and they just move on without processing everything.

Filipinos have faced many disasters in the past, and they basically just move on from it. And, it is known that one can’t be fully prepared for natural disasters but being less than prepared is not acceptable. The officials basically move and decide when it’s right there in their face, out of all those disasters haven’t the officials learned anything from it? What I have observed is that when something big like this typhoon happen, they weren’t prepared they think that it’s going to be a normal storm because the past typhoons were like a normal storm, they get complacent and ignore protocols if they have any.

“We didn’t expect this” the popular phrase right now from public officials, but they had the data about the storm but they just chose to ignore it since the current situation isn’t that bad enough to take actions. They really wait for it to get worse for them to move. And, now the aftermath of this Typhoon Ulysses will be another one of those moments where we will all see how the efforts of spreading information and awareness on how to be prepared during typhoons will rise and soon fade.

The admiration on Filipino resilience is there but where is the accountability for all the losses that could have been prevented? If this keeps on happening, sooner or later Filipinos will be exhausted to be resilient.
