Deepest Realizations

Angel Lasona
Posted September 9, 2021 from Philippines

It's been two years since an unpredicted Worldwide pandemic crippled countries economically, and left families mourning over the loss of loved ones. Everything happened swiftly, an abrupt transition from the traditional to this " new normal" way of living. We presently live with new terms like 'social distancing,' 'flatten the curve,' 'home quarantine', and even the usage of face masks, face shields and hand sanitizers are deemed a necessity.

The 'new' trend came to give us many realizations that we may just took for granted before. This unprecedented time personally hit me hard with the thought that no one is going to live forever. Failure too do happens, yet we must not let it grip us from fulfilling in our dreams. Dura lex sed lex, the law may be harsh but it is the law--- this too applies that 'change is inevitable in life' as quoted by Jack Canfield. Presently, bringing the justice banner of our lex class as the president, I have chosen to adapt to change, through cooperating with it and learning to fully embrace it by giving everyone his due and observing honesty and good faith. ( Article 19, Civil Code of the Philippines.)

Thank you for sharing. Pandemic has changed our life a lot. Many things we previously thought that it took for granted, e.g. travelling, go to office, kids attend school in person, etc. We may not able to do it. A lot of us have to work from home and kids have to attend school at home.
Stay safe and healthy! May Almighty God bless you!
