One Thing I Did During This Pandemic

Hey, Guys hope you all are well and keeping safe. We are living in history, for none of us would have ever thought we will see this in our lifetime. I live in NJ and currently, our COVID cases are second highest in the country next to NY.   I am hopeful that soon we will see respite because of the strict measures we are collectively taking. South Korea has flattened its curve, Italy has shown tremendous progress and I am sure soon we will follow the course.

Today I want to share with you an experience, which brought a sense of blithe in me. A few days back I decided to reach out to many of my old friends I haven’t spoken for a long time. The list included old clients, school and college friends, colleagues from past work life, and people  I disengaged because of trivial differences. The responses I received were such a joy to read. All of them are safe and healthy, which is great news, to begin with, they are all following the government-mandated protocols, which is heartening to know and everyone concurred that this shall pass. Our conversation begins with COVID and ended with hope. Some of us are even planning to meet post the COVID situation.

Talking and exchanging dialogue with most of them I realize, hope and positivity do wonder no matter how despair the situation may look. Thank you for lending your ears to me, keep healthy and safe, maintain social distance, stay in the shelter, and most importantly, keep rekindling hope.

  1. This point in time time is like a pitstop where we stop and recollect and reflect in our actions of the past.
    It’s a very beautiful thing you have done and I’m proud to call you my friend.
    Building bridges is one of the difficult acts in a relationship
