There is no doubt about it, we are witnessing a significant part of history. I feel glad and relieved that I am still here ready to witness the end of the pandemic.

I feel comforted by the thought that I get to write again even when things are uncertain.

The thought of undetermined outcomes and where most of us will be in the edge of this crisis will force us to question our past decisions — and change them accordingly.

We all seem to be currently suspended in mid-air trying to make a sense out of our lives. Most of us suddenly realized that giving time to what we are passionate about is not impossible and might be profitable — if we give enough time and attention to it. …

Often, we get frustrated over not managing to make the most significant decisions in our lives because of the lingering fear that we might regret choosing the wrong one.
