Covid, the Ukraine war and Results 2.0
It’s been a while. I just now found the strength and motivation to get back to writing and share my passion for wellness and healthy living.
With getting Covid at the end of December and watching the war unfold in Ukraine, the last three months have been extremely challenging for me — mentally, emotionally, and physically. I needed to take some time to reassess the essentials in my life and reconnect with my roots.
My parents still live in Romania. Despite living right next to Ukraine, they are optimistic and in good spirits. Daily conversations with my father finally brought me some comfort, just enough to help me sleep at night.
The fear of a world war and its consequences got me thinking about my priorities, and I want to share them with you:
1) Resourcefulness. How prepared we are, mentally and physically, will be critical during these difficult times.
All of the 21st-century distractions are nothing but smoke and mirrors. The social media platforms, the news channels, and even our leaders and politicians are programmed to control us, to divide and steer us away from our core and identity. That’s good for business. The sooner you realize it, the better off you will be. I have learned to rely less on other people’s opinions and seek the truth within. Ask critical questions and listen to your instincts. It might be scary and uncomfortable at times, but you won’t be led astray.
2) Relationships. It’s all about who is by your side.
Unfortunately, for many, success is all about TikTok, the number of followers, and the amount of “likes” we get. Messaging on Instagram and commenting on Facebook has replaced real conversation and relationships. The fear of losing everything made me understand that the number of connections I have does not matter. End-of-the-world scenarios running through my head made me see that nothing matters but our loved ones. Keep them close. Time is precious and more limited than you might think.
