COVID-19 needs no introduction. Every day we are inundated with stats, updates and news of all kinds. By now, all of us are well versed with what this deadly virus outbreak is about. I am not going to attempt any elaboration on this.
We no longer need “how is the weather today” kind of starters for any conversation. Just say “Corona” and everyone has their own opinions on it. It’s the only thing that humans across the globe are worried about.
Despite the gloominess, I see COVID pandemic as the greatest act of facing our deamons. It’s an act of showing ourselves the mirror. It feels like we all were living in a facade and now it’s been taken off. In a jiffy!
COVID (and Lockdown) is the most comprehensive (and painful) 101 course on Self Improvement
And the “reality” which we always evaded stands right in front of us. Seeing us eye to eye and asking us — What do you see, now?
Yes, we are seeing the times we never anticipated. Empty roads, economic standstill across the globe, isolating away from civilization. I know, it makes all of us jittery on what future holds for us. When do we go back to “normal”. But look at the brighter side.
“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.” ― Ernest Hemingway.
We all constantly strive to improve ourselves. So on a lighter note, this pandemic is the most exhaustive self improvement course you could have asked for 🙂
