When I started with today’s post, I had to remind myself about the last 2 years. Especially coz 2020 has been a blur! The pandemic has really shifted my concept of time…may be for all of us in some way!
We all change as time passes. In fact our personal growth is driven through change – change in environment, change in circumstance etc. That is why it is said that pushing boundaries or getting out of our comfort zone helps us grow as a person.
I am a very self aware person and know my strengths but am also aware of things that I would like to get better – not for anyone else but myself. So I look for opportunities to drive it!
In the last two years I have been working towards getting a balance in my life. Positive balance to prioritise things that give me happiness! I have started appreciating more and more that life is finite! So my own happiness takes priority over everything else in life.
The pandemic has strengthened my belief that mortality is looming in front of us at all times. I have become very precious about my energy and how I use it. So from a workaholic career woman, I have become a working woman. From a social butterfly, I like socialising in moderation. From having a lot of acquaintances and friends, I now choose how much time and energy I spend on people.
I have started enjoying the company of few and mostly my own. I take pleasure in my own thoughts and sometimes that solitude is all I crave for. I love spending most time with my family and going deeper into what is happening in our lives.
I still love people and broadening my horizons through their stories. But I have become more detached and learnt not to pour my emotions into the same.
I am motivated to continue my journey in this direction and learn from the experiences that come my way. My biggest lesson is that life is fickle and we have to learn to adapt with agility. I hope my life continues to excite me in this way.
