One of my favourite sayings that I’ve loved since I was a child is: ‘If wishes were horses, beggars would ride’. It’s wonderfully sad. Well in the time of Corona, my personal revised version totally applied: ‘If well wishes were horses, I’d have a cornucopia of Arabians, Thoroughbreds, Shires…all sorts, except they’d be lame.
That is all I will say regarding this matter!
Ah yes, I’ve also vowed to be super positive from now on too! Taking up some past times which will promote physical and mental well being. People, and life in general, do contain really toxic aspects. Desperately in need of some respite. We all are truth be told.
Wish me luck as I will need it.
In the current climate, receiving tangible kindness and thoughtfulness is a great gift. There are so many adversities and challenges because of this pandemic that has altered daily life, work and economies globally. Having friends that work in different sectors and with heart breaking family situations, I understand that the situation for me is far better and less emotional than many I know.
Someone very kind and special reached out financially during this time and for this act I am beyond thankful! A kind, thoughtful and supportive person is indeed a rare find. In all areas of life it appears that the criminally dim, thoughtless and mean-spirited dominate!
Working part time and being quite low volume (I truly wish I had a higher tolerance level towards nonsense) means that not being able to work has been extremely challenging, especially with the added pressures of university work and exams. Expecting a client to take care of me didn’t enter my mind. Obviously they have their own work and family issues but the fact that he did will never be forgotten!
I’m eternally grateful that very special clients exist. Ones that do actually care about us as people and will help, unasked, with no strings attached. I hope that I will continue to stumble along the path of such altruistic and caring individuals that care about my future as well as their…you know!
