Focus On What’s Really Important: Honoring Yourself And Othersby Farida Haji & Helmy Sa'at
A part of growing up is learning the importance of honoring yourself and others through daily interactions, experiences, and values. Inevitably our collective stories and perceptions differ; but we share commonalities. A significant one being our faith.
So question yourself, what is really important?
How you carry yourself and treat others does matter. Simple fact: Our thoughts inform our choices and decisions. And, our actions have repercussions in the immediate present and future. Thus, we do not live in silos even if we reside in a physically remote location, as our actions affect not only us but others and the world around us!
Before the pandemic, our lifestyles were monotonous and tiresome as we raced to climb the corporate and career ladder. During the pandemic, we went through a variety of uncomfortable situations. For the most part, our lives came to a standstill. Post-pandemic, we are recalibrating our focus on aspects of our existence we had forgotten. Mental wellness and care have surfaced to the forefront, creating room for difficult conversations and reminding us to take care of ourselves.
