The virus and the resultant lockdown have not changed people much, but perhaps would have given time to think about everything.
That’s what exactly happened to me. And if I can take it to the other side when we come out of this, I could still be a better person, and an activist- my kind of!
I have been a social media activist. But when everyone else also became activists, i learned to ignore much. And I learned to delete, yes a delete activist, deleting in bulk.
Something I followed in there have stuck- self love and self challenge. These I will be taking with me. The first one will make me capable of loving and the second to fine tune the lifestyle.
‘Finish your dinner, there are people starving’ the mother’s dictact is practiced. I learned to extract even remnants of food from plates so as not to waste. There are people starving now and they will be there afterwards too.
Bought essentials without looking at the price! on seller’s terms. There were no street vendors, only big players, playing with our handicap. Don’t bargain ever with those poor street vendors afterwards.
Nature is interested in co-existence. In fact a monkey family visited me in my living room. Just sat there and looked at me as if saying ‘peace’. Have to understand and respect nature!
TikTok is the best invention. Always brought a smile in people. So do everything TikTok!
