Opportunity to Give
You cannot give what you do not have. People sometimes desire to help but just don’t think they have the resources. Some have too much but have not learned generosity. A lot of people are becoming hopeless and hungry and this is the best time to share what you have. You do not have to build an organization to help or have millions before you share. It doesn’t matter how much it is, a help is a help and it will always bring great impact.
Opportunity to Reconnect
When was the last time that you shared new good memories with your loved ones? Due to high demands of work, maybe you often go home tired or found sleep, social media or movies as your relief. That is very understandable but now you have no excuses. You might be forced to stay at home but this is the perfect time to appreciate and reconnect to your loved ones. Start reconnecting with them and allow them to enjoy your company like never before.
Opportunity to Reflect
How was your life pre-corona? How has your life changed? In this season, you may reflect on how you spent your resources before – time, energy, money, health. This the perfect time to think and recognize what and who really matter to you. Reflect also on your spiritual aspect because as we all know, your spiritual aspect, your faith can move huge mountains from your life.
Covid-19 may have brought a lot of changes and challenges in your life. When things get tough and fear starts to creep in, may you always be reminded that there is always good in the bad. When this global winter is over, it will just remain a memory. By then, the real opportunity is to carry the growth and the best memories with you into what will be a global springtime.
