The Sun always rises.

The world is boiling

COVID-19 is spreading across the globe. Many people are sick and there is limited burying ground for the dead.

Family members cannot bury the dead, hug, or celebrate one another. Some of us lost loved ones, jobs, businesses, relationships, and trust in our government.

Are you confused, depressed, or miserable? You got this!

Time is too precious to be wasted for things we cannot control.

Your life is too valuable to be thrown away — worries.

Focus on your breathing and what you can do right now.

4 ways to find joy where you are now:

Hold onto Your Faith

Be a prisoner of hope.

Do you know anyone who always has found something positive in all situations?

My mother, Grace, used to be my pain until I tested her positivity. She speaks positively and always hopeful. Grace believes all things are possible with God. And I do too!

What is your faith? Who do you put your trust in? Look closely and grab strength and be a prisoner of hope.

Be Humble

Be an enlightened witness for yourself, family, community, and society. Our spouses, children, employees, employers, and friends are observing us in our “darkest” period of life. They will learn more about us than at any other time.

What are you learning to do or not to do?

Humility brings peace and power. Make contact with people you haven’t called on for along time. If you need help, ask, and receive. I did that last week, and I was so relieved, joyful, and peaceful.

Be Generous

Billions of Christians around the world are celebrating Easter this weekend, and it is a reminder that good can come out of a horrible situation.

Easter is a giving and joyful period. Choose joy and look for opportunities to give to others — people who need help and they cannot repay you.

Be Disciplined

Discipline helps us!

Discipline helps us in times of our worries or uncertainties. We often let our guard down when we are stress, and that can complicate our lives — disorderly.

Keep your normal schedule as much as you can. Make a choice to maintain healthy habits and behaviors — satisfaction and joy.

For me, I continue to walk and put on my lipstick while working at home. A client joked about my orange lipstick last Friday, and we laughed our eyes out.

What makes your laugh?

Your future is bright. Drop the worries and find joy in the small things in life. Continue to brush your teeth, help others, ask and receive help, and be hopeful!

Help yourself grow —
