Day 15 of a Month of Gratitude

I miss the World so much…

Last night as I went to bed I was dreaming about the world and wondered when and where my next trip would be. It’s so hard to plan anything right now since none of us knows when the world will open back up. I shouldn’t have looked through my photos, however, because the longing brought tears to my eyes. But there are only a handful of things that I can do that give me pleasure during this isolation from the coronavirus, and going down memory lane of my past travels really makes me smile inside.

So when I woke up today I thought, “What the hell am I going to do today?” Well, let’s be honest…I think this every damn day. And every day I want to DO something!!! It’s such a terrible feeling of being closed in, closed off, and incapable of taking action because of social distancing/isolation. With all this time I have been wanting to volunteer lately but that seems impossible, too, given the restrictions. But when I heard about the http://allinchallenge.com today I got excited! I saw it on Ellen DeGeneres’ platform and went online immediately and donated. Please check it out. Basically, you donate money and you can enter different drawings to win. Of course, I donated and entered the drawing to be Ellen’s Co-Host. Hilarious! This small act felt so good and made me happy, especially to dream for a bit. I hope you, too, find a way to give today. Stay grateful!
