6 realizations which transformed my life in COVID-19 times

May 19, 2020

PROMPT: Enumeration

1. Life is very short, live it to the fullest         

 In our pacing busy lives, we often forget to breathe in the present. Every hour, every minute and every second is unique in itself. We all must have had our bucket lists ready for the future months, but have you ever given a thought that this moment will never return? So enjoy each moment. Appreciate in everyday activities like relish the irresistible aroma and mouth-watering taste of dishes you have for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The captivating beauty of flowers around you. The fresh air you inhale. Everything will transform into a memory.

2. Technology Vs Novel Coronavirus.

This microscopic virus has failed the most complex technology. The universe moved to digital biometrics and smart touchscreen phones, but the novel coronavirus had the potential to turn it upside down. Massive malls and shopping complexes have a lock on their doors. Schools and offices are shut down. Global Economy has faced a major crisis.
This made me realize that despite the acceleration in modern technology, this virus changed the entire world. We were so proud of our development but COVID 19 shattered it. Though homo-sapiens are the most evolved species, we should not possess an ego. This opened my eyes.

3.     Appreciating social workers.

During the pandemic, doctors, medical practitioners, and paramedical forces are life saviors. Have we ever appreciated salons, mouth-watering restaurants, grocery shops, and even school? No, never. We do not realize the value of its existence until it stops providing its services. The pandemic has changed the way I look at the world. I feel honored to be a part of the society where social workers like security guards, police, and caretakers are spending days and nights for our well-being. But after this experience, we will have a deep respect for all these lesser-known professions. These occupations were often overlooked and underrated, but now we should salute them for being corona warriors.

4.   Healing Earth

We are indebted to the environment for providing us with uncountable blessings. During the lockdown, when we are compelled to stay at our homes, nature is recuperating itself. As it is rejuvenating, we are able to visualize the unbelievable miracles. The white snow-laden Himalayas are seen from Jalandhar, in Punjab state of India. Just imagine how crystal clear the air must be?  We could spot the pink flamingos in Mumbai. The creatures feel devoid of human threats and are returning to their original habitat. I regret that we, humans have extensively exploited the Earth.

5.    Spending Habits

Most importantly, due to lockdown, we aren't able to spend money on inessential luxuries. They have taken the backseat. Our priorities are our necessities like groceries, food, and other supplies. The expensive clothes, purses, gifts have lost their significance. However, we spend most of the time in our pajamas, the comfort of which is an extreme bliss. Simultaneously we have stopped eating out and watching a movie at theatres. We are saving on fuel and reducing pollution.

6.     Hobbies

Due to lockdown, I am saving a lot of time which was wasted in commuting. Hanging out with friends and shopping, all are time-consuming. Saving on such activities provides me time for my hobbies. In fact, I have started to polish my skills and find pleasure in it. A hobby not only keeps our minds engaged but also improves our mental health. From gardening to reading, a wide range of activities seems to be a boon for us in the times of quarantine.

    I have some hobbles but never have time for them.
    I like to sew, make rubber band bracelets, and some other things like writing.

    Yeah! This is so relatable! Everyone is saying "Oh, this is the time to try new things!" Here's a list of attempted new hobbies (most of which have crashed and burned:
    1. trampoline tricks (specifically backflips, but I sprained my finger)
    2. sewing (I was going to make masks, but they didn't turn out)
    3. crocheting (that's going pretty well)
    4. guitar (I accidentally held it backwards and had to relearn everything :P)
    5. writing <3

    So, basically writing is my one success!
