then the whole wide world paused, and we were forced to enjoy solitude. - here i am. march 2020 in my element. i just chugged a cup of coffee so my fingers are currently shaking while i type this. my cat, india, is dreaming during her habitual nap time, Hold You in My Arms by @raylamontagne just began on shuffle, and i’m procrastinating on my assignments due tomorrow. so even in quarantine, my routine/habits haven’t changed at all, ha. i ordered three books by @joandidionn where she immersed herself in an era of social change, and it intrigued me. because what’s happening right now is most definitely (an awful pandemic with obvious people who have been in pain and some even resulted in death ) but it’s also a time to pause. what truly matters to you? is it the simplicity of life that you forgot to notice or is it the materialistic views of the world? is it being selfish or helping others? this, right now, is real. this is happening. this is history. so, hug your mama a little tighter tonight, call your grandparents, help your family out, read a book (God forbid any Gen Zer’s would do that ), pray, meditate, sleep in, cook, take a walk in your neighborhood like you used to as a child, kiss your cat (or dog ), sing out loud, write in a journal, or watch a movie with popcorn in hand. let us be helping hands (while maintaining social distance of course ), praying, loving people during this time of much needed LOVE, HOPE, FAITH, GRACE, & COMPASSION. and most importantly, let us cultivate into the best versions of ourselves with all of this extra time. so that when we are freed from this quarantine, the world will be a little bit more beautiful and little bit more filled with love. - kelby z <3

hey guys, i hope all of your new year/decade resolutions, goals, propositions, and dreams come true to your reality this year/decade. : ) my own set of resolutions consists of reading more, using this particular platform of social media to keep writing, singing, and inspiring others, to further my experience in journalism, and to learn a second language. whatever your own set may be, i hope you tackle them, perfect, and grow with them. i hope you take that gym membership seriously or hold your addiction recovery high upon the priority list. i really hope you take time for yourself. for example, it could be making a cup of coffee, fixing up the best bowl of yogurt, grabbing a quilt and book (of course ), and taking yourself outside to sit in solitude...or maybe that’s not how YOU do it. but whatever it may be, i hope you do it all and i hope you do it well. i’m rooting for you and all of your future selves. let’s make 2020 the initial step to a promising decade ahead. so later on we can all look back and say, “this is when i started, but this is who i am now and i’m so proud of that.” cheers, kelby ✨
