Reasons to find the Goodness of Enhanced Community Quarantine 2020

The Beginning

The forecast about the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) declared by the Office of the Republic of the Philippines for the whole country because of the pandemic coronavirus (COVID 19) is a surprise. The quarantine will start on March 15, 2020 until the further announcement. It shocks and upset more Filipinos because of the shutdown of many companies and businesses. Employees have to stop their work and went home to their respective cities. No work, no pay policy to others while some got their early bonuses from their employers. However, the safety of the people is the priority of the ECQ. We cannot change the fact that when we neglect the situation, many will be wiped out by the virus. If people will look at the negative side, it will be a disaster and continues loss but looking into it as an opportunity will make this ECQ still a blessing.

Take Your Time

Looking back, overloaded work minimizes the time for own self like lack of sleep, and sometimes, the break is never enough. Weekends or day off run so fast and did not felt a rest day. Family day is inadequate, and children feel inadvertent from parents. The ECQ requires stay at home policy. Stay at home make all rest more than they need unlike breaks. The situation now gives more time to parents and children bonding moments. This time is free time to organize the house and the things inside.

This Should be an Opportunity

Yes, the ECQ is an opportunity for all that have the skills but never work it out. This time is the outbreak not just of the virus but on the internet communication world. You can work over the web using your ready gadgets on the house. The cellphone that you use on gaming when you are free on work can be used as a medium of income. Your personal laptop that use on making office reports is a big help to make working online more convenient. The internet that you consume in connection with social media is now your edge to access different websites that show hiring updates. These opportunities make a difference, and sometimes exceeds your previous income.

Working at home

Make a Difference

Time past by easily and the body you preserve will weaken and when retirement age comes, we have no choice but to pack up and receive the minimum separation pay from the employer. By that time, you are not that strong for activities that you and your child can do. You almost spent more than of your life span in the company more than to your family in the house.

While having work over the web in the comfort of your own house together with your family is an option. No heavy traffics, no rainy and sunny days outside since you are inside your house, not requiring bags, shoes, perfumes, new pants or suit, and sometimes not requiring office attire since you just work at home and your face is the only appearance see by your client. Even you had the disability physically but with skills and talent, you can be hired over the web and start earning on your own basis.

Making Any Sense?

Of course, the choice is within you. Corporate world or work at home? Corporate world needs investment of finances for transportation, for everyday allowance, for new clothes and require work attire etc. Work at home requires cash too, from the internet connections, laptop, telephone or cellphone, noise cancelling headset, and your time of committed work. Whatever choice, you make, you need financial related issues. However, make sure that the pleasure of the decision you will make you happy and comfortable. Just to mention, after the effects of the pandemic to the nation, many Filipinos from different provinces of the country who conquer the challenges on working in Metro Manila decided to go back on their respective provinces for good. While working at home did not require travel and sacrifice to work far from their families.

So now, do it make any sense of thinking what is better for now and for your tomorrow?

Happiness, the emotion that everyone wants to attain in life

How I found my Happiness in life?

Let me say that having no enough time with your love ones hinder your happiness. Leave the things/activities that give you stress and insufficient time to do the things you love. Be confident to say no if you don’t want and to stand and do it even if you’re a first-timer. That way, you will find real happiness since no one is controlling you or giving instructions on what and when do you something. What a great feeling when you just do what you want to do because you have the freedom. Living within the flow but doing it for a better tomorrow.

Comfort and Happiness

Finally, I got comfort and happiness when I decided to leave my corporate world to be with my family. I take care of my children while they face daily learnings in life. And though I am a hands-on mom, I chose to do some online works like this piece when I have free time, online or offline. So, what if I am not an expert on this. I never had the experience of writing but like you, I have many experiences in life that I can share.

Ultimate Happiness

The happiness I have right now may not be ultimate, but this helps me lower my temper and more compassionate to my family. I have a peace of mind that God will provide because me and my partner work together and support each other to be more productive and efficient. I think that’s what I meant by ultimate happiness.

We just have to do something about it

Get out of your comfort zone. Explore yourself so that other skills may grow and develop.

Be a risk-taker. Making mistakes is normal. We’re not psychics to know the results of our decisions and actions. At least we tried. That is the most important thing. Never trying is losing.

Consider your security. Consider the future security of individuals whom you love and part of your life, otherwise your decision that results to negative will be regretful forever.

Invest in yourself. If you want something more, invest on something more valuable to get something bigger but don’t let go all you have.

Move forward. Whatever the result of your decision, never feel sorry but accept it and move forward. You cannot bring back time to change your mistakes but the lesson learned is your guide to the next step to where you want to be.

Don’t live with negativity. Who will believe you win the battle even if you really not? My friend, the impact of your decision will affect only you. Rumors are like pests that will destroy you and discourage you from doing what makes you happy.

Take a break. Things need to freeze for a moment if needed. Relax, think and plan your next move.

Enjoy life. Being carefree is not bad at all times as long as you don’t hurt anyone. This will definitely make you happy.

Do good things without expecting something in return. Counting the good things you do to people will just hinder your success.

Above all, ask our Almighty God for provision, contentment, satisfaction, peace of mind and happiness. All the actions and decisions you make must be blessed by Him. To God be the glory for all the things we’ve been through. I guarantee you to find your happiness, too.
