By the middle of this month we would be in the 20th week of the year and so much has happened from the time we brought in the new year.
The month that just passed by was the first full month of many firsts. The first full lock down month and all the baggage that comes with it. It was also the month which Global Alliance had dedicated to education and training with a myriad online webinars that were planned long before one would have imagined the shutdown of normal life.
As I reflect on the importance of Training and Learning I look back at my life of forty years and especially these past 20 weeks and share some thoughts that make me feel I’m happy despite being in the sixth week of what has become the new normal. I’m convinced that the purpose of life is to be Happy and we have the power to ensure that nothing can make us sad unless we choose to. And even this choice of being sad can come from certain circumstances which we can deal with by controlling our mind with positivity.
I have picked up four aspects for each of the five months:
New normal –
Helping the needy with no returns –
I feel delighted that there is so much I have gotten to know about myself in the last 20 weeks, most of all that I’m teachable. We all are. We just need to open up. The bottom line is that the current life we all are in can make us happy or sad. I keep myself happy despite the gloom around. Because the choice is within our control and I make the deliberate choice to opt for happiness every day and learn as much as I can.
