Coping in the time of the Pandemic: Monicah Wangari

I started writing short articles back in 2017. I began with a free WordPress account then later bought my domain. Through the years, I believe my writing has evolved and I love to see it. Often, I go back to my earlier articles and reread them. I laugh at how witty some articles are. I reconnect with myself every time I read my work.

Keeping a website for me means keeping my memories alive. I love seeing how far I’ve come. And connecting with people who share in my interests is a bonus. 

When the pandemic struck..

I thought it was the end of the world. I think I was almost depressed. But somehow, just like other people, I found the strength to get through and keep pushing. Fortunately and am grateful to God, I didn’t lose my job as it had been a trend during this period. Going to work felt like an extreme sport as it meant interacting with other people. But it also kept my mind busy.

I took the time to really focus more on myself and reconnect with who I am and my family. Life is short and precious. And these days, I am working on having a better perspective of everything that life has offered me. I am trying to feel more fulfilled with the simple tasks, giving myself grace, being patient, and cheering myself for every little accomplishment.
