If I were to look back on my whole life the pandemic would definitely be in the top 5 for craziest things that has ever happened to me. Most people think of the bad when they think about the pandemic, including myself for a while. Then one day I woke up and made a choice to stop looking at the bad side but to look at the positive side. Now this wasn’t easy for me to do. I mean what could possibly be positive about the whole world shutting down? Then I realized that the positive is getting to know the people you live with better and learning how to react to different situations. All in all, the positive was that the whole world was given a chance to grow and become better. I believe that if we all really try we can make that happen.
