The year 2020 has been a year of major upheavals, but there are a lot of valuable lessons to be learnt from it. We’ve been living amidst a pandemic for almost a year now. We’ve lost several along the way, however, we have sustained fairly well. One of the things we’ve learnt from this struggle is how to adapt to change.
Most of us fear change and strongly dislike the minor changes made in our daily lives. However, not only has this pandemic altered our daily agenda, but has also transformed our lifestyle altogether. The prevailing pandemic has taught us how to adapt to change. No matter how infectious this virus may be, it has taught us to be resilient and flexible.
We went from a life mostly lived outdoors to staying at home day and night; from going on luxurious vacations across the world to enjoying the simple pleasure of our homes; from working at an office or studying at school to sitting at home and completing work and studies on a laptop.
Despite several changes, we continue to go on, we still endeavour to accomplish anything and everything we can in these difficult times. Maybe this change was just a motivation to make some significant life changes that were necessary. We needed this change to re-discover ourselves, pursue things we love and learn how to deal with harder situations.
We are thriving during a pandemic: several companies’ stocks are going through the roof amidst the pandemic. Clearly, we are so much stronger than we ever were. Throughout this pandemic, we have had our friends’ and family’s constant support. We’ve been together through thick and thin. This pandemic might have just brought us closer together.
Whatever surprises life may throw at us, Covid-19 has taught us how to endure them. In a way, we are now prepared for anything that may come our way. And we have made several changes in our lives that will have a positive impact in future. Change is the only constant in our life, so let’s embrace it and move forward.
