“We are all born free and spend a lifetime becoming slaves to our own false truths”Atticus
Hello Readers ! I hope you all are doing well. I know some of you are getting bored to tears in this lockdown because it feels like watching your favourite colour paint dry.
We’re all waiting for quarantine to be over so that we can finally get breathe some fresh air and spend some time with our loved ones and have fun. I bet you’re gonna make some best memories of your life the moment quarantine is over.
But being quarantined is not that anaemic as it sounds. It’s actually pretty refreshing.
So in this blog I’m gonna tell you 9 Things Quarantine has Taught us !
1. Your Family Is The Best Team You Could Ever Have !
Family is the greatest treasure of our lives.
So many of you are experiencing some unforgettable moments with your Mom, Dad and your annoying-but-cute siblings. You have also learned some new things about them which was hidden behind that brick-like personality. It’s like this time is strengthening the bonds which became loose over the period of time. You’re finally getting to know each other!
2. You Can Be The Next Masterchef!
Well! I’m sure your family can’t stop appreciating your cooking skills because your food tastes so good.
You’ve cooked maximum food in this quarantine than you’ve ever cooked before.
You are so talented that you even replaced your mom in cooking and now everyone is bugging you to make them snacks whenever they’re hungry. And the fun part is that you’re actually liking it !
3. You Even Miss The People You Never Talked to!
I bet you’re even missing some people right now that you never talked to. It’s like you wish you had good relations with these people to check up on them.
Not just that but you’re also missing them with whom you have feuds with. It’s like you want to press a restart button and start new beginnings with them without disputes and bitterness in your relationships. You still stand a chance to be great friends with people you had sour past with.
When this quarantine is over I hope you finally apply some CC cream (means courage and confidence) and make your move to start a new friendship with them.
4. Animals In Zoo Feels the Same Way We Feel About This Lockdown
I have attached an image below just try to understand this in deep. Animals feel the same way we feel about this lockdown. Can you imagine being like this FOREVER ? Scary! Right? The last time you met your lover, friend, family member or anyone, you never thought that was the last time you’re gonna see them before lockdown and now some of you are regretting because there is so much things that are unsaid. You wish you could go back in time and start something as soon as possible. This is exactly what happens with animals.
Now before any zoo expert comes to me and argues with me on animals behavioural pattern I just want to say one thing
“EVERY LIVING BEING ON THIS PLANET DESERVES FREEDOM”
5. Self- Discipline
John C Maxwell once said
“Motivation gets you going, but discipline keeps you growing”
Quarantine has given us all the time in the world to change our outlook towards the many things. It’s like a lesson to many of us that we should start realising the importance of “self-discipline”
You’re more mature than you think you are.
• You’re at peace with who are.
• You’re respecting yourself and others around you.
• You have opened doors to deeper understanding.
• You’re not letting negativity affect you anymore.
• You want to sleep early, wake up early and start your day with positivity.
• Winning an argument doesn’t get you excited anymore. (Well this one I’m not sure about 😅)
6. Exploring The Creative Side Of You
Tons and tons of people are finally getting time to explore their hobbies and reunite with old hobbies. Whether it’s writing, painting, drawing, singing, dancing, playing a musical instrument or anything you are exploring it all over again. It’s like this is the best time of your life to create something best out of your hobby and show the world that education is more than just books. Educate the world through your hobby and motivate people to follow their passion.
7. Feeling of Gratitude.
What is Gratitude? It’s the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
Feel grateful about the fact that you have a place to live in, healthy food to eat, water to drink and enough money to survive in this lockdown, because there so are many people out there who are stuck in unpleasant situation and struggling to get a simple bread.
So Thank God every moment and let go of all the negativity.
8. Mother Earth is Finally Breathing!
Lockdown has a shown a dramatic impact on reducing the pollution. The toxicity in air because of smoke emitted by the factories, vehicles, etc has decreased to a great extent. The pollution levels have lowered and we should be so much grateful for this because “Sometimes All You Need Is A Bout Of Fresh Air”
Here’s a small poem by me,
“The sky is so clear,
Every morning seems so bright,
Birds singing sweet rhymes,
Unwrapping the real meaning of
Love Is In Air
We’re finally breathing some fresh air”
9. You know you MATTER!!!!!!
All the people around you love you so much. If you think you’re alone STOP ! And Look Around. Observe. You will see that each and everyone is holding your hands and we’re all in this together. Your family caring about you. Your true friends entertaining you and above all you’re dealing so well with long distance relationship. So there are people actually holding on to you and not leaving you alone and that’s RARE!
