At my desk in the office, there’s a sign that states “Today is a good day for a good day.” I love this quote for several reasons. Especially with the time we are in now. Some days of being stuck at home have brought sadness or worry. Seeing our favorite events move virtual, being canceled, or not being able to see our loved ones is hard. These are all things out of our control, but what is in our control is how we choose to handle each day.
At the beginning of quarantine, I spent many days dwelling upon everything. It felt like a domino effect of things not going as planned. As I got further into quarantine, I renovated how I was living my life. This time really showed me the value of my family, my teammates, and appreciating what I had.
I spent a few days with my nuggets. My uncle took us mushroom hunting and fishing! It was super cool because I had never been before!
My mom and I doing funny dances together.
Recently, we got to move back into the FFA Center. It’s been filled with filming commercials, writing our RA’s, writing scripts, and many other duties to ensure we are ready for the first ever VIRTUAL state convention! One thing that I admire about our team though, is that we never forget to spend time with each other. Yes, we are extremely busy, but we make the most of the time we have left. These past three weeks have been filled with fishing, eating our lunch on the “sea bass”, ( our dock that we take out in the middle of the lake) and having a campfire. I’ve really enjoyed all these memories we have created since we have been back.
Cait and I made s’mores! These weren’t regular s’mores though! We used Chocolate chip cookies on the outside instead of graham crackers. It was quite the treat.
SEABASS fun! I might have forgotten sunscreen, but it was still a great day.
How have you been spending your time at home? Are you making the most of the times together with your family? No matter how hard times get, focus on what you’re in control of. Always remember “Today is a good day to have a good day,” but the choice is yours.
Living life to the fullest,
