We can all make a list of things that we will do after the pandemic is over. Maybe there were certain things in our lives that we wanted to do for so long but were too afraid to do. Maybe after staying indoors for so long, we will finally find the courage to try all those things which we were too afraid to try before and start living our lives to the fullest. One thing that I realized during this pandemic is that all this time, we were just surviving. We need a breakthrough from all this stress, anxiety, uncertainty, and turmoil. Perhaps, we can all agree that it’s about time for us to lay down all our problems, breathe and start to thrive, finding peace and joy in life.
“The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward.”
The best way to feed that resilience and find peace is by staying connected with our loved ones. These are the people that are with us through thick and thin and knowing that they’ll always be there in our lives gives us peace, hope, and comfort.
Finally, we need to stay balanced and take care of ourselves. Whether we have a job to do, or if we are just staying at home, we need to know that taking care of ourselves is the best way to feel safe and secure. When we are getting stressed about certain things in life, we just need to lay back and focus on ourselves instead of the things that surround us. The best way to do this is to spend time with ourselves. Try taking a walk around a quiet place, reading a book by yourself, taking long breathes, and maybe doing some exercises to relax your brain and work your muscles. Perhaps meditate, dance, or do whatever makes you happy! All I’m trying to say is, we all need to focus more on things that make us feel good about ourselves and make life easy on us.
And remember, we are all in this together. Let’s not be afraid to laugh and sing whenever we feel like because nothing can make us feel inferior if we allow ourselves to be free and happy. I can only hope and pray; that all the lessons that we learned during this pandemic, are going to make us stronger, powerful, and more united than ever before. Let the spirit of compassion, unity, happiness, and above all, love, shine through every day in your lives!

“No person, no place, and no thing has any power over us, for ‘we’ are the only thinkers in our mind. When we create peace and harmony and balance in our minds, we will find it in our lives.”
