As an extrovert initially, I felt a sense of loneliness when the lockdown began. I missed going out to meet people. I missed church.

Over time, I embraced and began to enjoy the WFH (“working from home”) experience. With more flexibility in time, I set aside my mornings with the Lord, worshipping Him while playing the keyboard, cooking all my meals, exploring my hobbies, and trying new things! Without the busyness I once had, I had more quiet time to reflect and make better decisions that I am proud of.

So when it was time to go back to the office, I was surprised to find myself reluctant and sad about the change. I became anxious about going back to the office. However, after my first day at work, I told my housemate that going back to work was really good. I was more productive than ever and I had forgotten how much I miss the company of my colleagues. It’s not so bad to go back to the office!

Moving forward, I learned the value of spending time with the Lord. Being with Him helped build my confidence and identity. Also, I am more intentional in how I spend my time so that I don’t get into busyness and missed out on what God has in store for me.
