During the first few weeks of the lockdown, I dedicated my time to decluttering and fixing our stuff. I look at my belongings and other gazillion things in my room (most of them I previously bought thinking they were “essentials” – just like the newly delivered pairs of boots I bought for my next winter trip). What good are all these when at this point, we only need the essentials? The Community Quarantine made it clear what is truly essential – in terms of material things and like what the Little Prince said, invisible to the eye.
I learned that I feel happier whenever I spend for other people. This is one of the things I learned from the online course I took up during the start of quarantine. I ordered food and gifts for friends and relatives to let them know I think of them – especially those who are living solo.
Share your thoughts. I also want to learn from you.
