These are challenging times. It was just January when we all claimed that 2020 will be a great year, 2 months later we are now facing a quite not-the-best-year but not that worst also.
In some parts of the world: some are still starving, some are still looking for a way to earn and feed their families— while we are here, comfortably lying in our beds with our mobile phones on; Netflix, Facebook, Tiktok. We still have enough food to eat 3 and even up to 5 times a day. Yet some are even wandering in the streets with no food, shelter and how about clean water?
But despite all that, some of us still have the guts to complain about the situation without realising that the convenience we are enjoying today is a dream for some.
COVID19 Outbreak: The Break That Humanity Needs
I hope we take these challenging times to reflect, to be grateful, and to see something good despite this crisis. It’s good that we are able to stay home and spend lost times with our families. It’s good that we are now aware of how important it is to do basic hygiene practices. It’s good that we are now considering healthy home-cooked meals than the usual fast-food meals we ate. It’s good that we are now saying our prayers. Because when was the last time we did?
I am grateful because, while some are affected with the “no work, no pay”, I can still work at home and get paid. I am grateful because I am healthy with my family and my baby. I am grateful because we have enough food and resources to back us up in case we ran out.
And to you too, be grateful, be open and be mindful. Some of us are in a more rough situation, some of us are crying at night in fear. Some are underprivileged and some are deprived of the things we can still enjoy today.
Here’s a Tip…
So stay home. Some are fighting for their lives. The front liners are fighting to save lives. Militaries are doing their best to contain the situation. And if you need to send something important overseas, check with the USPS phone number to find out if delivery and shipment is available.
Help, in even the little ways that you can. These challenging and uncertain times might be the little time we need to restore humanity.
