This was a very quiet week for us and nothing happened that stands out, so this update will be short.
My walking this month mirrors that of February because I have not been able to walk as much as I want to. I have now reached the state of Assam, the biggest of the northeastern states and am about 200 km from the state capital of Guwahati. I’m still a long way from Mumbai and then I still have to make my way to Bengaluru.
My reading this month has also suffered, but I am still reading, just not as much as I should and would have loved to. But the year is still young, so I am confident of meeting my reading goals for the year.
Many countries have now removed mask mandates, including many Indian states. Maharashtra, Delhi, Telangana, and West Bengal have announced complete relaxation of the Covid-19 norms starting from April because of the steady decline in cases. So in Maharashtra and Delhi, whether to wear a mask or not is debatable as both states have done away with the penalty for not wearing a mask in public places. Even in Singapore, masks are not mandatory outdoors but are still compulsory inside. I think I would perhaps take off my mask if I am outdoors and especially if there is no one near me, but would be more comfortable with a mask if I am around people. What about you? Would you continue to wear a mask even with mask mandates off?
Today’s quote is from Orison Swett Marden, an American inspirational author who wrote about achieving success in life and founded the SUCCESS magazine in 1897. He says our thoughts and imaginations ate the only real limits to our possibilities. This is something to think about as it feeds into the theory that we are the total of our thoughts. So let’s think positive and uplifting thoughts this week so we can extend ourselves and reach what we are capable of.
That’s all from me this week. Stay safe everyone.
