What is the point?

I could not get rid of this thought- What is the point? A long term friend and doctor died yesterday due to COVID-19. Television and social media are full of beautiful words and tributes for her. Her patients and colleagues loved her. She was a fit and well person in her fifties but the virus did get hold of her in a bad way. So I come back to asking myself, where should this stop?

In this changing world, living with a heavy heart, pressured head and bloated tummy seems to become normal because that’s what happens to me if I get stressed. The agitation and helplessness are not going to go away. We all want to get back to usual living but I feel that is going to become a bygone era. We need to be safe and keep doing the washing hands and distancing to keep the illness away.

How can I get my motivation back – a friend said family, work and colleagues is all that we need and is enough reason to keep going. That is true. Pondering over what she said gave me a big lift. Thinking about what we have today is important. I was talking to my husband we need to make sure we are giving something back to society. Even a smile as we go for a walk might help the other person.

We are all having down days at the moment. I am in constant contact with people in India and everywhere it is the same story. Ups and downs are normal now. We need to be there for each other and we shall overcome this calamity. Did you know the biggest immune booster is laughter and happiness? Have a nice day my beautiful friends.

  1. We are shaped by events and people around us. Often someone of the greatest challenges and learnings come in critical and tough times. Loosing someone is always the toughest experience as humans. It touches us deeply. In this difficult times it is even concerning.

    Your friend fulfilled her purpose of life.

    We may stay behind to only know our purpose and do the contribution on our part.

    Some little words, a smile and a hug can change the world for someone at times.

    Let’s hope things get better sooner and we all live healthy, caring and beautiful life with less impact to our surroundings and loved ones.

    Cheers. Rock on. Spread some positivity. πŸ™‚

  2. You ended this a lot more optimistic than I could have. You medical peeps are in an nightmare situation and maintaining your sanity and resolve must be especially difficult after losing a friend who was working under the same conditions. I’m deeply sorry for your loss and hope you have happy memories to help you during your grief.

  3. Please accept my condolences for your loss. An elderly uncle of mine died from Covid-19 earlier this month. I wrote at that time that “It feels like he, and we, have been cheated by that wretched virus”, and it still feels like that. The way we can honour him and all those who died is to remember them with love, and to learn the lessons this virus is teaching us about how we can all live better, more compassionate lives in the future. Take care, stay strong.

  4. So sorry for your loss! I try to remember to ask God to give me patience, a good hold on my temper and be nice to others. This virus has shaken up all of us. Good luck to you and keep smiling.
