I just had to share this with you all. I felt so disconnected without wifi. I don’t know if it’s a good thing or a bad thing.
I visited my family today. I had a blast. I drank green tea with my sister, did a workout with my mom, had a laugh with my other sister, long chats with another. My son played with his cousins. We all ate lunch together. My mom taught me solitaire. I hugged my dad (much-needed hugs).
However, the whole time I was there, there was no electricity, and half of that time, there was no wifi. So why did I get so restless when I had no wifi at home? Because I was alone. I had books to read at home, and I read Roller skates, and I had movies to watch, and I watched Fast and Furious 9. I guess I just didn’t want to be alone with my thoughts.
The situation in Lebanon is scary, it’s like a country that’s dying. Every once in a while, new symptoms come up. Prices rising, no electricity, no fuel, no wifi, in some places no more running water! My solace is dreaming of going to Turkey and using up my savings just to breathe again.
So as much as I appreciate the AC when I have it, the running water, the electricity when I have it, I really appreciate that the wifi is back. I haven’t been applying to online jobs because I was too depressed, but today I thought why not?! Maybe I will, and see what happens.
I also really appreciate everyone who is reading my blogs. I am floored by the views this month, so thank you!
I would like to remind those of you who know and announce to those of you who don’t know, I have 10 books available on Amazon. There are 4 poetry books, 1 self-reflection workbook, 2 self-help books, and 3 mini autobiographies that give a glimpse into my life. None of the content of my books is available on the blog (except for The best advice to improve yourself and your relationships but I’m deleting the corresponding blogs bit by bit every once in a while, and from the book, We all have a dark side, the key to happiness, and more only the 1st poem is on the blog because it is the most viewed blog post of mine, hands down) but it is of similar content. So if you like my blog posts, you will love my books!
Please check out my books on Amazon here to support me and my writing!
