Things have changed for me. And I am loving this change!
In the initial days of lockdown, there was a fear of pandemic and also an everyday struggle when I was grappling with the household chores and office work. Completely distressed with the situation, the anger often burst out in the form of a daily dose to China for the damn Virus!
With time, things changed. There is no fear anymore. While my heart goes out for people who are deeply affected by this pandemic, by God’s grace I am able to see a brighter side of this lockdown.
I feel a sense of pride in accomplishing various tasks with just two hands. Tried some difficult and new recipes, which I absolutely loved to cook and bake. Tried singing some songs on a video to social media, a huge upgrade from bathroom singing. My house looks cleaner and organized too. Yes, couldn’t ignore this second love J Gardening is always the first ;)
I am busy, yet connected with my family and friends. There are bingo nights with the family on the weekends. I couldn’t believe we could enjoy playing simple games and quizzes online. Yes. Small deeds do bring happiness!
It is an eye-opener even for me, that I am able to do all this along with an office project. I think my productivity seems to have increased manifolds! I feel like a superwoman already! My husband and kid are happier too. Right. Their happiness is directly proportional with mine J
The days before lockdown were busier yet unproductive. There was a cooking help at home, yet the pleasure of eating food was missing. There was a house help yet my home missed the warmth and coziness it brought when I decorated and organized it myself. Life on an ongoing base was work, eat, sleep, and repeat! There were lesser phone calls with the family. Being busy was always an excuse.
Not that I feel thrilled and motivated to bake, cook, or sing every day. There are lazy days when I feel like doing absolutely nothing. But I wholeheartedly love these days as well. Simply because I realized the sheer joy of accomplishing something, be it a mere daily chore is priceless!
Yes. Things have changed and it brought some changes in how I execute the smallest of things with confidence and satisfaction. I hope, it remains this way, a happier me and aspiring to forever be J Twinkling.
