Maryland Teens Created Plan to Pick Up Groceries for Seniors During Coronavirus Pandemic

The good thing about the madness behind COVID-19 is that it’s giving people an opportunity to get creative and to also show kindness to others. That case is true for these two teens in Maryland!

Matthew Casertano and Dhruv Pai, sophomores at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, Maryland, have developed a service project during their time away from school to help the elderly. Their newfound organization, Teens Helping Seniors, allows volunteers to go on grocery runs or other errands for seniors who are unable to do it themselves right now. Many are aware that the pandemic is seemingly more harmful to the elderly, so it’s been advised that they stay inside.

#MondayMotivation

Wishing you all a positive and productive week! Here’s a Monday Motivation quote from entrepreneur Jim Rohn to kick off the week strong.

For several of us, this quote is true especially now with the quarantine and the coronavirus. A good chunk of us are working from home, some of us for the very first time. It’s not as easy as everyone thinks, especially when you don’t have a plan. If you wake up each day, whether you’re in the office or at home, without some kind of plan, the day will get away from you more than likely. You’ll look up and it will be 5 pm, and you won’t even know where the day went. 

For me, I’ve found some things that work for me. Creating a list of doable tasks each day is extremely helpful. Not just writing a list of things I hope I can get to but creating a list that I know I can actually get done. Otherwise, it’s just a wish list, for real. I eliminate as many distractions as I can, especially from my phone. I also put on some kind of motivational/calming music and plug my headphones in, and sit down to work on my list. That’s how I run my day.

How do you run your day? Or is it running you? 

Inspirational Jam: “High Hopes”-Panic! At The Disco

“Had to have high, high hopes for a living…shooting for the stars when I couldn’t make a killing. Didn’t have a dime but I always had a vision…always had high, high hopes!”

This track from Panic! at the Disco is a great Inspirational Jam to encourage us all on the road to reach our goals. I love it so much that it’s actually a warm-up song for my Zumba class that I teach!

High Hopes,” a track from the album Pray For The Wicked, really is a story of perseverance and drive. The song is lead singer Brendon Urie‘s story of persistence towards his musical ambitions in spite of the rough times. Continue reading “Inspirational Jam: “High Hopes”-Panic! At The Disco”

Words of Wisdom: “Where Are You Applying Pressure?”-Sarah Jakes Roberts

For today’s Words of Wisdom, I had to share these thoughts from author, speaker, and businesswoman Sarah Jakes Roberts! In these crazy days with the coronavirus and quarantine, this one is vital to still make the progress we need towards our goals.

In this clip, Sarah brings up the quarantine and the uncertain times ahead. It’s definitely unnerving, especially with the rate that everything is going down. However, are we just going to take this time to relax and sit or are we going to make some moves happen during this downtime?  “Are you just sitting back and letting this thing happen or have you decided that ‘Now is the time that I will apply pressure?'” Sarah asks her audience. “It’s time for you to become everything God has called you to be.”
