A second chance – Lockdown on my mind.

A second chance – Lockdown on my mind.



Lockdown has been announced for 21 Days!!!

Remember the day when it was announced? when there was chaos all around when our life turned around completely and we started adjusting in this new lifestyle or the New Normal. For most of us, it was family all around, for some, they were alone, for some it was always working days were from home, or for some, it was a lil time to relax.

From listening to Radio on KUKU.FM to listing to the sweet voice of birds, with NO traffic around and my favourite book in hand, That’s how my days were.

With our lifestyles, even our perspective towards life, changed, isn’t it? We now find Joy in Mom’s food and our cooking experiments. We found pleasure in our evenings coffee by nature or doing lil gardening or reading our favourite book or playing Ludo with friends. Isn’t it?

Well well, even my days were the same, until I got my second chance. Yes, I have been working from home, concentrating on my blogging, my passion, but with time, I forgot what I truly loved. Yes, I started my career as a social media manager and with time, I became a trainer and a blogger. My love for the social media manager was long lost.

But during this period, I got a call from one of my friend, for handling their social media. That’s when I got my second chance. My love for planning strategies, creating graphics and managing handles was back.
Day by day, I started working more on it, trying hard to balance everything.

Be it blogging, handling social media or training, I tried balancing everything. This is the time, that taught me, how important family is, how important cousins are.

How every day, my day ends with my cousins and my parents, those ultimate discussions with my grandma on Mahabharata and Ramayana. I feel, my life seems perfect. Though it is still the same, the only difference is I am not going out. I have learned a new way to work from home. From cleaning our desk to making our lil working corner more happy one, I find peace.

Discovering our passion, doing what we love, and making something out of it has always been my Goal. During this period of Lockdown, I started Build your brand series where I want to share everything I know.
I know, its tough to be positive these days, we all face the same. Somewhere we are all hoping things to become normal soon. No doubt there are many many things available online to distract ourselves, but, does that give satisfaction? NO, it doesn’t.

That’s when #Positiveeverydayy challenge, my journal, came to my rescue. I started this challenge for myself, to start my day positively. After that, I started taking more interest in Journaling. This is the time where I rediscovered myself. I started writing for myself once again.

I started doing things, which I was passionate about once upon a time. And thus, I rediscovered myself in the times of Lockdown. Have you found something that you really love? That gives you peace? Share in comments. Are you happy with this New Normal Lifestyle?
