I have always been a content person with least expectations. Academics had/has/will always be(en) an exception😋. It doesn’t take moving a mountain to make me happy. Smallest of things put a smile on my face.
It has exactly been two months since I stepped out of my society,due to quarantine.I have had my share of low and depressing days, after the initial excitement of doing many things ‘new’ has faded. There are days, when I don’t wish to get out of bed and don’t want to move a muscle.
Yet, this quarantine period has taught me many life lessons and I could say I am a better person today.
I am taking yoga seriously and trying to discover and fit in a pose or two in my every activity.
We, as a family have started watching TV shows together.It is a first,because we all have varied interests. But, we have found a common ground in watching the rerun of the DD shows and to my pleasant surprise, they could still interest my kids.
I could still make varieties in food, with whatever little provisions I have at home. After living a life, where I could get most of the things online so easily, this quarantine has taught me the value of even the smallest of ingredients like mustard.We value things, only when they aren’t available. Don’t we?😀
Looking at the not-so-privileged people around me has also changed my perception about life and helped me knowing my priorities,most definitely.
I have found my happiness in sketching out the characters and situations from my favourite stories.It has had a positive impact on a not-so-creative person like me.
Having avoided Facebook like an epidemic (pun intended)😀, I have fallen prey to it.But, I intend to use it as little as possible.
Yours truly have also started blogging. I started writing my thoughts everyday in FB.Though I wanted to keep them short and crisp, I couldn’t help having a lengthier piece than the previous day.Case in point, this post was supposed to be shorter one😆. Motivated by my well-wisher’s comments, I have tip-toed my way into starting my own blog.
So, I could definitely say that I have rediscovered myself in many ways than one and I am quaranfined! Having said that, I want my old life back soon🙏
