The Changing Times

Hellooo readers!! Welcome back to the New World Order! Today’s topic is about the changing times from the very enjoyable year 2019 to an extremely challenging year 2020. 2020 was the year that shook us all. But the ship managed to sail through the storm. In fact! Despite the storm the ship sailed safely as as we all had our peers and our families. They were like the strong and majestic sails, they were supporting us and we were supporting them.

Now, if I compare these two years, there is a huge contrast. Earlier people used to go out and party, but now the people are hesitant to even step out of their houses. But of course! There are two kinds of people in every situation so where we have people wo are hesitant, we also have people who don’t bother to wear masks and don’t take social distancing into consideration.

Before 2020, people were so busy that on WhatsApp we used to only see forwarded messages. During that time, no one bothered to write a special and customized message to their loved ones. During the year 2020 people started contacting their family members, a personalized message was written for them beat a birthday wish, an anniversary wish etc. Or even if they were just checking up on them. People and family members from all around the world started video calling etc… There were reunions and a lot joy was spread. Internet and virtual platforms showed us that we don’t need to be next to each other to feel happy. If you truly love your family then you can never be separated, maybe by distance, but never by heart.

Now, my dear friends always remember that stars never shine without a dark night sky. By this, I mean that even during these times people are grabbing opportunities and learning new things. I think during these times many of us have learnt new things. I think that many of us have discovered ourselves and have gotten to know ourselves better. Many of our hobbies might have changed or better, increased. I can talk about myself at least, during the lockdown I cooked a lot with my mother (Then I ate it up 😁). Well I am sure something must have changed so tell me about your new hobby in the comments below!

Anyways, back to the topic… Now people are more responsible as they take onus for their own actions. The people have become self-sufficient and independent. They have learnt the hard life of the workers and started show casing gratitude towards them for the smallest things. Now people around us wear masks and use sanitizers when they step out as it’s importance is so much, that it is like a piece of clothing!- Something you can’t go on without!!

Well…😁 since my last line in the previous paragraph ended with “Something you can’t go on without”, I would like to ask YOU (yes you!!) what kept you going during these troublesome and challenging times? Well if you ask me and IF I answer truthfully I’d say that I have survived because of the 10 things below πŸ‘‡πŸ»-
1. H.O.P.E- Hold On, Pain Ends
2. The fact that there will be good days ahead
3. Books esp thriller and suspense… Some author recommendations for you avid readers are Agatha Christie, Chelsea Pitcher, Stephanie Perkins, Amanda K. Morgan etc… Guys I need more suggestions, please help me. πŸ₯Ί
4. Art and FOOD 😍
5. ONE DIRECTION XD
6. ONE DIRECTION XD
7. ONE DIRECTION XD
8. ONE DIRECTION XD
9. ONE DIRECTION XD
10. Some movies :)- Thought you guys might get bored seeing ONE DIRECTION coming up here as well. But if you ask me this one is also 1D πŸ˜‰

Lol!? Anyways…Here is a very beautiful quote by Henry Ford which I stumbled upon…”When everything seems to be against you, always remember that an airplane takes off against the wind and not WITH IT. So, I guess you guys have some homework, dw though coz, its only that you have to list down 5 things that kept you going last year and what new hobby you have incorporated in your life! Good luck guys and till then adios mis amigos! πŸ˜‰
