Thoughts on COVID-19 and Restriction Movement Order (RMO) Situation

Assalamualaikum guys!
I feel so thrilled when writing this entry because it might sound like I'm being nonsense but then you need to read it until the end to understand the story from my opinion.

As we all already know, the whole pandemic situation is very risky and it's so dangerous for us to even do any outdoor activities. Who would have thought that one day, we would have to force ourselves to never step outside unless for important things only and still, that action is too risky, it has put our lives at stake. But right now Alhamdulillah for we are still here, blessed from Allah to be alive, to get to be with our family, Alhamdulillah :))

So back to the original topic here, I feel like I'm writing a confession guys but it's okay. We sometimes need to confess to whatever things because sometimes for me, I would feel a little bit relieved when I do that.

During the whole time of the Restriction Movement Order (RMO), I feel so grateful and sometimes, I want this thing to stay longer. Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not asking for this disease to stay in the country and affected our lives and all, it's just that there's so much time that I get to spend with my family and I would never dare to trade that time with anything. Ever since the virus hit our country, I feel like it's a bless. Yes, of course it's a bless from Allah but personally, for me, I feel this time, it's so special that I really want this to stay. I know, I'm sorry, that is so selfish of me, right? What a fool ignorant I am! But looking at the bright side, I get to spend a lot of time with my family, my mother, my father, my sisters and brothers and those things and stuff I left at my college has never crossed my mind until now.

Before this, I am too busy that I didn't have the time to go back home. Seriously, the longest period I can stand is three weeks but at that time, it has been more than three weeks and my mind is wandering, I couldn't even get myself to focus on my tasks and work. Even my mother is so worried she asked me a lot of times whether I can face this or not but then I lied to her, telling her I can because you know, I got work and things to do and my responsibilities at the college so that's why I forced myself to stay longer and once all the programmes and events have passed, I'll go back home. So that's why I am so grateful for this situation. Seriously, the duration of the RMO acts like a replacement for all the time I wasted at the college (yeah, it's called time-wasted because I don't enjoy doing that and I don't enjoy them because of the people and the work surrounding, not because of the responsibilities and the position I hold)

It also helps me realize how would I actually want to live my life. As for me, I admit that I have been too immersed with the pattern of growing up, applying to colleges/universities, graduate and land a job, find your life partner, build a family, growing old, then die and at this point in my life, I feel so happy that it is still not too late to reroute or to reset my mind back about this. I realize that there's so much more to this world and whatever happens, I should enjoy every moment and to never let regret stays in my life. If there's anything to be done, do it now. If there's anything to be said, say it now. If there's anything to be happy about, smile and laugh now. If there's anything to be sad about, cry now. If there's anything to feel regret about, let it go now.

Through this RMO period, I learn an important lesson that I don't think is taught anywhere, not even in the class and this, I believe is the most valuable lesson I've learnt in my life. Until next time, stay safe everyone, Insha-Allah everything will be back to normal again. Have faith ^^
