The one thing which always used to fascinate me when I was travelling to different countries, is the bright blue sky and the cotton candy clouds over it. That’s the one thing which I always used to miss in India.
I used to say to my husband that I would live at the place where I could see this view every day when I would wake up in the morning.
But this Lockdown, has broken my dream to go out of India and see those beautiful clouds. I can see them now from my window. Earlier because of pollution we could only see the hazy sky. But now the air is so clean that we can see the clear sky. Thanks Corona for breaking my dream.
If we think of, there are thousands of complaints we have with the current situation. Life is not as normal as what it happens to be. Yesterday only when FB displayed me one picture from 2 years back I started missing that life of freedom.
Its the human nature to keep yearning for what we don’t have and then when we have it we become dissatisfied with that and shift our focus to something else.
We are the first generation who is seeing this much freedom in daily life. No restriction, no boundations, you can plan your day as per your comfort-ability. I doubt any other generation in past had that or any future generation is going to have that.
Now it’s on us, are we going to take it positively or curse it that I have lost my social freedom.
To look at the positive side of the picture is our choice. Every single day we make choices. The same choice can make one person happy and can make another person sad. Breakdown of the car and not able to reach the office can make a person sad as he has to work from home. On the other hand, the other person would be happy in that situation to get the chance to spend the day at home.
While making any choice we need to make the right balance of the elementary items. This balancing act is the most difficult task also. In most of the cases, we drop one item while focusing on another. After that, we have to lift and focus on the item that has got dropped and in turn, risks others.
In real life, people lose their personal life while focusing on their career. After some time the same person starts hating the same career. They blame the company or manager for the losses at family front. Is the company responsible for the same or the choice that person had made in his life?
Similarly, most of us keep spoiling our health during the mad race of earning money. Later on, the same money is spent to recover the poor health.
In the current situation of Covid-19 we all have been in a situation where you don’t have any other option but to live with your family. Didn’t we all use to complain about it when we all were running for our day to day activities?The choices we make and the decisions we make have a long-lasting impact on our life. They make us special, put a bar of distinction between us and everyone else.
Life puts us many times at the crossroad where we need to choose one path. The option we take decides our future and destiny. Sometimes we need to choose from multiple good options and sometimes multiple unwanted choices. It is not that important to keep over-analyzing and keep worrying about why we are in that situation. The more important part is, which option to choose then. The clarity in our mind about our aim, our knowledge, support from our friends and family only helps us to make the decision. There is no clear parameter to decide whether any decision is right or wrong. Our objective is to make the decision.
The perfect way of understanding the process of life is to understand how you have chosen to live your life.
Let’s accept the current situation of Covid-19 and let’s do whatever is possible in this situation. Life would be normal someday and then the stories of lockdown will become the past.
Let’s conquer the situation together.
