New Year's Message of Hope from A Covid-19 Survivor
It didn’t kill me, but I came out stronger.
Yes, I was Covid-19 positive. I became victim of this virus- a nasty, lingering virus that gave me the worst symptoms I’ve experienced months ago and I wouldn’t wish it upon anyone. I thought I was immune to this virus because I am healthy and young.
But I was wrong. Two words that came up that moment- DENIAL then FEAR.
When disappointment knocks, hope should open the door. When adversities loom large, the first casualty usually is a person’s ability to think right and stay inspired. But all it takes to be happy and prosperous is an ounce of motivation, present from within. When people do not think positive, they spread unhappy vibes into society.
Look For the Positive
If you can take away just one thing from this pandemic and from this post, let it be this. In every situation, no matter how negative it is, you can always find a spark of light. Being reminded to be grateful for what you have, being able to slow down, experiencing joy from sharing with the ones you love, or letting the planet we live on rest and recover for a bit.
Life is what you make of it. If you solely focus on the negative, that’s all you’ll ever see. There is no rainbow without the rain. And after rain comes sunshine.
To my friends in Pioneer,
I am sure the current situations will ease out soon. The threat in the air will subside, and a new sun is bound to raise high up in the sky. Keep yourselves loaded with the doses of self-belief and hope.
As we start the new year, I strongly recommend that we not just maintain physical distancing, but also keep a delicate balance in our time allocation to media versus living life to the fullest! As members of PSA, let’s all be instruments of hope by making a difference in the lives of the people every day. Anyone, anywhere, can make a positive difference.
