What Unexpected Positive Things Did You Realize or Occurred In Your Life Due to Pandemic/Lockdown?
Concentrating on the negative effects of this pandemic can make a lot of people depressed and or angry.
Instead let's concentrate on 'unexpectedly' positive outcomes or things you realized (that are good that you can use moving forward) thanks to the pandemic/lockdown?
-My CEO finally recognized how useless some of the higher ups are and how much of the company's work is actually done through me and only me. They've always known this, but its good to hear her say it finally (although she only said it in private). Took her two years though.
-I realized that I don't need much 'material' things in life, what I need are things that I can't buy with money. Cliche but it's so true.
-Saved gas and restaurant $$$
-Side business up ~50% lol (where are people getting their money to buy these things?)
-I baked for the first time in years; ***** my cheesecake is not bad at all
-Talked to my brothers seriously for the first time in a decade. It made me realize how much I regret not making time to see them regularly for the past 15 yrs. I honestly missed being called and being their "kuya"
-Reconnected with some of my old childhood friends in PH. Kinda want to go back to Manila to see them again
-Girl I was seeing before pandemic is now with someone else (I'm 95% sure so far, just need final confirmation)...Good. I'd rather be snaked at year 1.5 than year 2. I just wished she would've just been honest with me. But oh well. Not hurt as much as I thought I'd be, I don't know why.
-Friends that truly care about you will reach out to you when you least expect them. Finally saw who truly were my 'friends' and how many are just 'acquaintances'. And made me realize how much time I was actually allocating to said acquaintances in the past, vs. the time I should've invested on real friends. I will prioritize accordingly moving forward.
-Realized how amazing my life is. Family, friends, etc losing houses, businesses, careers, marriages (some their sanity) thanks to this pandemic, yet I'm in holding pattern and lots of new doors opening up left and right. I didn't understand why I was depressed there for a minute. You gotta count your blessings instead of narrowing your vision on the small negative bumps in life that will matter very little in the future.
What are your unexpected COVID blessings?
