Life is like a novel. Every new year is like a new chapter in it. We have the chance to rewrite our character in each chapter. Even though, we can’t change other characters or events happening around us. We can reshape our character to be a new version. We can learn some new skills. We can cut off a fear that’s holding us back. We can be more compassionate towards other people. We can lend a helping hand to anyone in need. Let’s author our character from the scratch, the way we want. Take responsibility for the change, dream it, shape it.
Value the quarantine
Are you happy in this lockdown, doing something you have postponed for a long time? Like writing, reading, drawing, learning, cleaning the house or sorting out your life, building a healthy relationship with yourself and others. Are you bored and always keeps looking on the news for the update or calendar for magically the days to fly by? Are you getting irritated blaming people and government? If you are in the second category, now it’s time for you to think about yourself. Either you are scared of not doing the routine stuff and you are accustomed to doing new things. This extra time just scares you in the fear of feeling bored and sitting idle. If this scares you think of the time after your retirement. So better learn to practise from now. Empty your mind of any such feelings and think, if you have to rebuild your life what would like to do? Like attaining a new skill, growing a new hobby or simply doing self-grooming with love. Nurture a small plant or talk to your family, try to find what they are interested to do in their time. Distract yourself, do something valuable in this quarantine. Don’t let yourself regret again in future, thinking what if you have used that time in a better way.
