I read somethere this week a quote which resonated with me very strongly. The quote said, “You are not rejected, you are redirected”. This came the same day when I was rejected for a job I bid for. I knew then this was the universe sending me a message and I know there is something really special lined up for me.
Because of a wedding in the extended family, this week was super busy with lots of traditions and celebrations. The wedding was between two individuals of different communities and to see traditions from each community being followed was very sweet and showed us what a diverse melting pot India is.
Yesterday’s newspaper headlines said the world has hit the 2 million mark in terms of COVID-19 deaths and it was a very grim reminder of the crisis we are currently in. The current number of positive cases is slightly more than 94 million with the top three hit countries of the United States, India and Brazil accounting for more than 45% of the total cases worldwide!
Next week also promises to be a busy one and though this week I was very unproductive, I am determined to do as much as I can next week so I can make up for this week’s lack of writing. And here’s this week positive thought. This quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson really spoke to me when I first saw it. It tells us that when things are ready, they will appear in front of us, so there’s no point in hurrying. There’s a similar saying in Hindi which says “jab jab jo jo hona hai tab tab so so hota hai” meaning when something is meant to happen, it will happen and not a moment sooner!
Stay blessed, stay safe and stay masked everyone! It’s being said that 2021 will be harder than 2020, so stay as safe as you can, especially when you are outside the house.
