Cue Card Talk about a time something good happened to you

Sample Answer

About two months ago, the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown and quarantine began. When it was first announced I was in a state of shock, so far, the concept of this virus had been abstract, something present but not likely to harm me. Needless to say, when the fact that this notion was indeed real and impacting me directly hit home, I was a tad bit overwhelmed.

Soon, however, I settled into a new routine, I worked out every morning and evening, ate healthy and woke up on time. I found myself extremely satisfied with this new work routine, not only was I getting time for my hobbies and getting work done, but I was having fun while doing it. This was indeed a blessing in disguise for someone like me. I rediscovered my love for writing and restated my online blog, I gained deep-set contentment from sharing everything I had to be grateful for in these trying times.

I got into reading again, and even experimented with my coffee that I had been mindlessly consuming for years without any thought to the process. I reworked so many flaws in my previous way of life, identifying things that used to be a source of stress and worry to sort them out. I managed to complete projects that I had all but given up hope on, which motivated me incredibly. The amount of self-discovery I have gone through these past weeks has been enlightening to say the least.

Not only have I learned about myself, I have learned more about my friends and family as well. The people who still took the time to talk to me every day now hold an even more special place in my heart.

While I am acutely aware of how severe the situation is globally, on some level I can’t help but be thankful for all this, for me it was a much-needed period of discovery, to organize my life and realign my goals. I have no doubt in my mind that once this entire thing blows over I will be more than dedicated to my relationships and work life balance. I am grateful for everything in my life and that I can still support myself on my savings as well as working from home. I am grateful for this extended break no matter how bleak the situation might seem.
