An ode to the greatest teacher till date-#My2020

Dear 2020,

It's almost that time of the year to look back and reminisce on the past and as I do so,I only see great lessons that I learnt in this year.I welcomed you in with a happy heart like everyone else but as I bid adieu ,I see a complelety different person doing that.

As the nation was confined within four walls of the home providing us with ample time to look after ourselves, I looked at the trivial aspects(or so I used to think) with a new light.You taught me that it's okay to tell " no" when I really feel like not doing anything, you taught me to keep faith on my perseverance and hard work even when failures heaped.

Also you taught me to let go of anything that doesn't make me happy and to forgive quickly in order to preserve my mental sanity.The raging pandemic you brought united ourselves once again and proved that race,caste,creed didn't matter in case of a deadly disease.All that we need is love and empathy.

You taught me that I can be happy with the basic necessities of life and it won't mean the end of the world if I am unable to lay my hands upon that expensive brand or miss a trip to the flashy cafe I've secretly yearned for.You taught me that perseverance,patience and prayers can do wonders even when no silver lining is seen in the darkest of clouds.You taught me to never lose hope even when everything around ceases to have any meaning.

By far,the greatest lesson you taught is the correct use of time.That time once gone,will never be back.I finally overcame my greatest demon in the form of procrastination, which robbed me off many golden opportunities crossing my path.To live a life wonderfully,we need to connect with our loved ones,take care of their emotions which is never pricey.Also we need to take care of our environment and undo the damages done by humankind so far as quickly as possible to lengthen our existence on this earth.

                                              Farewell,

                                      A changed human
