This year had been a rollercoaster for everyone. We all had different plans for 2020. But with the advent of coronavirus, our plans failed terribly. We became helpless in the face of this virus. We were forced to hide from it until we have a weapon to destroy it. Although it caused a lot of suffering in the lives of many people it has proved to be a year of giving many life lessons.
Same as everyone, I had many plans. I got married in January just two months before the lockdown was announced. I was planning to go on a honeymoon in April with my wife. I was planning on starting a business in July. This business required the presence of many people in a single place. Starting this business was a dream for me. I had all the plans in my mind to make it big. Everyone was going to be great for me.
The advent of the coronavirus led to all our plans failing terribly.
But suddenly this pandemic struck our lives like a bolt of lighting and all of our plans look ridiculous in the face of this pandemic. I had no idea what just had happened. I did not know how to react to it. Pandemic was such a thing that I could not even pour my anger on it. I was forced to rethink all my plans. I was forced to change my plans as it was difficult to start this business again as I knew it would be impossible considering the nature of this virus.
I found a job and I am forced to work in the corporate sector where I hate working. But still, we know everything is not in our favor. There are many forces that work that decides our destiny. Sometimes, we must leave a few things to our destiny and sit back to enjoy and to see how all things will pan out. I am sure, they will never disappoint you.
But if we look at the positives of this virus, we got more time to spend with family than before. We got a lot of time to pursue our hobbies. It allowed us a mile to develop self-awareness about our lives. Therefore, 2020 has been very uncertain for me. It was the year of many ups and downs, many moments of happiness and sadness. This year made us realize the impermanence of our lives.
