COVID-19 has changed the world overnight. When this is all over, the world may never be the same again.
Despite the horrors, and yes there are many, we hope this global crisis has given everyone lessons and helped you to grow as a person.
Despite all the pain and suffering this crisis has caused, we hope that it will be for the better.
Looking at the courage of the front liners and people helping each other, there is a lot of hope for the future of mankind.
The coronavirus pandemic has shown us the importance of community and that we cannot live alone.
Beating this virus will require all of us to work together, to listen to authorities, follow health protocol, and help others in need.
Our future and our victory over the disease is right at our fingertips.
What have you learned so far? Is there any good that has come out of this whole ordeal so far?
Instead of picking up two or more bottles of milk, do you put down the rest and just get one? Are you thinking about others who might need milk too?
If there is anything good to come out of the coronavirus pandemic, it is that people are showing kindness and compassion towards each other.
Financial status is no longer important. Thinking about others and how you can help should come naturally now.
We are now a couple of months into our enhanced community quarantine, and we should have realised by now that greed has no room during these hard times.
There are so many ways to help. Just simply staying at home is already a big help. You can share food with your neighbours who don’t have enough.
You can donate to organisations that are out there saving people. Do not be selfish.
Do your part to make a difference no matter how big or small it is.
When you think about others and how you can help, you have already taken the first steps towards helping the world heal and overcome COVID-19.
Changing your perspective and your way of thinking can make a big difference.
Every good deed starts with good intentions. Keep being positive and considerate of other people.
Remember that what you need to survive during COVID-19 is also what your fellow human beings need.
We are going through the same things and need almost the same help and support.
The coronavirus disaster has shown us the importance of living life to the fullest and preparing for the future. Not one of us has prepared for a crisis like this.
Let this be a lesson that we need to prepare, save and plan. Plan not just for a bright future but to put contingency plans for unforeseeable incidents like this.
There is no other way to live life other than to enjoy the present and not take anything for granted.
This crisis has shown us that money and career are not as important as our families and loved ones and that the time we spend time with them is precious.
Take advantage of this time and make the most of the time you have with your family NOW. Plan your future around them, not around your career and material things.
Ask yourself, “If I die now, will I have no regrets? Have I lived a full life?” If the answer is “no,” start now. There is no better time than the present.
How do you want to live your life? Remember that you are not in transition. Life is happening NOW, coronavirus or not.
Take this time to reflect and ask yourself how you want this moment to be. How will this crisis define you?
We are not always given time to reflect and refine our character.
Be thankful that you have a chance to take a closer look at your life, your decisions and how you deal with the current situation.
Are you proud of your actions in the past few weeks? Don’t be too caught up in your own world. Live and make a difference.
It is not enough to just live your life. You need to touch others’ lives and leave a mark. These are the things that give life meaning.
You are alive and healthy. You are safe in your home with your family and loved ones. You have food on the table. You have so much to be thankful for.
Instead of complaining about being stuck at home, be thankful that you are given time to rest at home with a good internet connection.
Despite being quarantined at home, you still have access to social media so you can talk to your friends, you can watch TV or movies and play online or mobile games all day.
Consider this time as a long “staycation.”
Not everyone has a house to go home to. Not everyone has food on their table.
Our front liners are not able to go home and be with their families. Don’t be resentful. Be thankful.
We hope that with the COVID-19 crisis comes personal, emotional, and mental growth. We can only come out stronger and better people from this.
Let us take these hard-earned lessons and take them to heart. When this is all over, we will be stronger, better and more empowered than ever before.
So, who do you choose to be during COVID-19? If you are a business owner, in particular, you have no choice but to grow and adapt today or risk losing your business.
