The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of the Pandemic


What's that one thing you ever regret not doing before the Pandemic hit?

Is it about all work and no play? No travels? Is it not having enough money? Is it about being cold and not being able to extend a hand and give a warm embrace? 

What about your fitness goals? That dream job abroad? Or perhaps your dream house, 
dream car and the dream wedding?

This pandemic brought chaos and bad energy into our lives. It has caused anxiety, fear, apathy, and grief. It killed our dreams and highest hopes. It made a lot of people hopeless and helpless. It made us believe that life is short and that life could suddenly be gone.

However, this pandemic isn't just about the negativity it brings. But it has also unleashed the best in us. It has tested our resilience and faith. It made us be more kind and understanding. It taught us the value of a good relationship. It has made us realize that money is not everything. And it helped us ponder on our existence and life purpose.


What's the ugly side and the bitter truth this pandemic brings? It's our inability to understand the nature of suffering. Our inability to prioritize what's essential versus what's unwanted. Our inability to see other's worth and even our worth.

The saddest truth is when the invisible enemy turns out to be our blind spots. Our inability to spot our weaknesses. Our inability to unleash our hidden powers and energy. That after all these years, we're still stuck with the false beliefs from our society and the influence of the majority. 

The good, the bad, and the ugly are the taste of what we are and what we give out to this world. We may never know when this pandemic will end, but it's not the end yet to make a restart, to make a new beginning, and so we'll have a happy ending.
