What COVID-19 made me realize

Nothing is permanent: We run behind money – but that becomes worthless when you don’t have anyone around you to celebrate. I was shattered when I saw a millionaire throw his money and jump from the building because he lost his family dies to COVID-19. What made him end his life? wasn’t he happy? He was a millionaire! He lost his family, his biggest wealth and rest was just paper – the only decision he could take is to end his life and thus, he lost his life. Within a fraction of seconds, everything was over!

I don’t lack time – I lack discipline: Trying to accomplish a goal but not having the time to do it? Must be my busy schedule – right? Now that I am working from home, I still did not achieve it. Simple and straight, it’s not the time, its the long list of excuses which is stopping me from accomplishing my goal.

There is nothing above Family: With the lockdown bringing all of us under a single roof, I realized how blessed I am to have a family who cares for you and does so much for me without even expecting anything in return!
Looking at the positive side of COVID Lockdown, I feel blessed to spend ample time with family and understand that no amount of money, fame, or anything can beat the worth of having a family 🙂

How to make the best use of WFH

With a lot of articles popping up on tips and tricks of working from home, I thought of penning down how I am making the best use of working from home : 

  • I am taking care of myself: I am no longer giving fake excuses and playing the blame game. I am taking ample care of myself by getting more sleep ( not guilty at all! 🙂 ), spending time with my family and keeping my surrounding clean
  • I am spending my weekends doing nothing: with the complete lockdown, stepping out of the house has become extremely difficult and instead of getting bored, I am enjoying doing nothing and just whiling away time. It did sound crazy but after doing nothing for two consecutive days, I felt better.
  • I am eating junk – a lot of junk: I am not a health freak but still try to avoid junk as much as possible. With literally every rule-breaking down, why not break the diet and take a break from all the protocols? I am enjoying binge eating and will try my hard to get back to normal routine once the lockdown is taken off 🙂
  • I am spending a lot of time being alone: while alone has its positives and negatives, it does help you to understand a lot of things. Being an overthinker, it does go off the route at times, but being alone did help me understand the mistakes I have done and given me ways to correct it.
  • I have started forgiving a lot of people: It’s not surprising that a lot of people come to your life just to use you. Almost everyone goes through this. I have also gone through this with regrets of why did I even meet them. But, in the end, it’s all about forgiving them and moving on because of only me who was suffering from the regrets. I will not forget the lesson they taught but will forgive them for their deeds.
  • I have started accepting myself: obese? fine. Ugly? fine. Black? fine. Fair? fine.Weird? fine. Whatever I am, whoever I am, I am ME and everybody has the right to be themselves and love themselves. If I don’t accept myself, how can I expect others to accept me the way I am?
  • I am learning something new every day: with a lot of websites offering online learning courses, I am making sure that I learn something new every day before I hit the bed. Let it be technical, creative, or even stupid – learning is learning.
