The pandemic is raging on. You must step out only for essentials. It is taking a toll on your mental state. There are disagreements in the family. Your travel plans have come to a grinding halt. You have been away from your partner for 379 days. Twitter is overflowing with bad news. The political establishment doesn’t care. Healthcare is on the brink of collapse. If you contract Covid, you are on your own.

You have a roof over your head, food on your plate, you don’t need to pass through a crowd to get to work and you have a stable internet connection; you are in ultimate luxury.

As for the problems, all you can do is singularly focus on things that are under your control. Focusing on anything that is not in your control is a path to despair.

The truth of some life lessons becomes apparent, when you are at the end of your rope.

Look inward, keep moving.
