Time Like This!

The normal is redefined

The routine is rerouted

You now have what you were longing for, a time off, away from work and hustle of life

The unexpected privilege of ‘work from home’ is arranged

The wish is Granted!

But nothing comes without a cost

You now have all the resources in the world and nowhere to go

You now have all the time in the world and not much chores to do

When was the last time you sat in your lawn or terrace and watched the setting sun

When was the last time you listened to the chirping of the birds

When did you start to find the calm within the chaos and peace within turmoil

There’s much uncertainty, anxiety and depression around

Yet there is hope

Deep down inside we all know

This will pass with or without us

There were many reluctant inhibitions

Many dear dreams

Much prized possessions

Then all of a sudden, we realized the age-old adage ‘all that glitters is not gold’

It definitely wasn’t

We all know since time immemorial that health is wealth

But since when we started giving our own self the tender loving care that it deserved

The kindness of a mother and the protection of a father

Suddenly, junk food was abandoned, dining out was out of the question, home deliveries were reduced in number and minutes on the treadmill were increased

We genuinely realized the importance of many things in our lives and realized that some dearly held possessions were not even required

We realized where we were underplaying and where we were overdoing

The ball is in our court now

To Redefine the Circle of Life

Be it friends, family, or colleagues; work, rest or play

Whom we decide to connect with and otherwise

And what we decide to do with our time and life

We always thought there’s no pause button in life

But here we have the strange fortune to experience pause ⏸, stop ■ and restart at the same time

This is a golden opportunity to weigh your life and see what you miss and what you don’t want back from life

What parts of life you want back and what of it you are better off without

Maybe you are missing your workplace or maybe you don’t want to go back to that mundane job

Maybe you are loving this solitude or maybe you are tired of the silence around

Read, Write, Play,

Work, Rest, Slay

Look for what are you running to and running from

Find Your Purpose

Look in the eye of the storm and find the strength within

Discover an acquaintance within this time of adversity
