Hi everyone. We want to thank you all for staying with us through one-third of the year. Phew. It’s been somewhat of a roller-coaster to say the least. Through it all, we are alive albeit our lives may not be as comfortable as we envisioned it to be. We all had hopes and plans for 2020; however for some, maybe even most of us, it has not been what we have planned for but I guess we should not lose hope because if we lose hope, what more do we have to cling onto? Nothing. Hope is what keeps us going. It’s what makes up get up from our beds everyday and look forward to hearing that there is finally a WHO-acceptable cure/vaccine to the coronavirus pandemic.
The COVID-19, being the global pandemic that has shut down economies, financial markets, intra-state/interstate and international travels, and made us stay at home has had people question a lot of things, lost hope, gotten depressed, confused, anxious, and scared. Some have read up and drawn parallels from the Spanish Flu, Marseilles Plague and other historic pandemics that has ravaged our beloved planet. However, the big question remains, WILL LIFE EVER GO BACK TO NORMAL AGAIN? Honestly, we wish we could say YES and even proffer solutions but truth is that we do not know if it will ever come back to normal.
Through it all, let us put our hands in each other’s and pull each other up. Your smile could be all the next person needs to see. Maybe your hug will warm a neighbour’s heart. Maybe a kiss will make your partner feel loved. Maybe a story will bring back hope. Maybe a walk down the road is all that may be needed now. Maybe just follow the sunrise to its sunset. Maybe try counting the stars at night with a child. Maybe try preparing a family recipe and eat it together with everyone at home. Maybe say a little prayer, God will listen. Maybe sing aloud and gladden your heart. Maybe just maybe, life may not come back to normal but we can take control if we want to be happy or sad. Maybe… Just maybe… choose life… choose happiness… choose love… choose joy…
Thank you for staying with us all through our esteemed readers. You guys are the best. We will continue to pull through together with you guys as a team. Watch out for great posts from all of us this month of May.
WELCOME TO MAY.
