An Unknown New Era

Life threw COVID-19 at us unexpectedly and with remarkable speed. Now, you’re at a coronavirus crossroads and you don’t know whether to turn left or right or should you just go straight? You’re heading to a place which you’re unfamiliar with, without any directions, but you feel that you need to move forward no matter what. You’re not alone. We’re in this together. Life in a time of corona as I call it.

Hope About COVID-19 Vaccine

When we watch the episodes of those affected, we certainly hope for an effective vaccine to be launched soon so that we can find relief. Thankfully, there are a few pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer that are getting ready to launch the COVID-19 vaccine with nearly 95% effectiveness, and soon we can access it.¹

Lockdown Is Still Going on

Even though some say the toughest months of this pandemic have passed, the world is still fighting COVID-19 and we are continuously making adjustments as new information comes through to us.

Buying Needs Online

It would have been a much more difficult life if we did not have access to the internet and our smartphones. We are blessed in these times with the convenience of online shopping.

Virtual Celebrations

We can still get married. Wedding celebrations are intimate events to be shared with our nearest and dearest. Let the pictures tell your love story. This is something that still keeps us happy and relieved. We are able to say “Hello!”, wave online and chat with our friends and family, as well as participate in conferences and meetings, taking care of our work in a better fashion.

Looking at Life Differently

Babies are born every day and every minute around the world even during these crucial times. Motherhood continues to be the cornerstone of life. Life doesn’t stop with COVID, but the virus has made us change our course of living.

Managing Family and Work

This pandemic teaches us that time spent with family is precious. Work and education, though sometimes challenging, can often be done online. A walk outside in nature is better than trips to the shopping mall and homemade food tastes like a bit of heaven on a plate.

Final Thoughts

It might not seem this way at the moment, but COVID-19 is bringing people closer together. Even though we don’t see the end of the tunnel yet, we are working together to learn how to live and help each other during this hard time and nothing is more important than that. Help given is a life saved.
