In a world turned upside-down by a pandemic while been holed up at home for weeks and you may see people who do pass by outside the window are wearing masks.
But everything is An-OK.
Time heals everything. Give time, some time.
If you have a stint to be bored at home, then you have a stint to change yourself too.
It’s time to challenge yourself! Comprehend your boredom as an opportunity to calibrate your goals, learn something new, or change your life’s path. You can explore your own self and evoke on your own dreams you missed, sightsee your true interests and capabilities since this could be the one last chance given to you in your life to re-think and re-schedule your own soul, re-diagnose your opportunities, realize your own flying colours that you may feel grateful in the near future.
I wish you would not get lost in this self-quarantine by panicking over the latest news or scrolling through social media. It’s a high time to move on, after COVID-19; stronger, clearer, calmer and cleverer than before.
