Eh, 2020 wasn’t so bad to me….
Believe me when I tell you that I know that 2020 has thrown a lot of people curve balls. I get it. Some were thrown my way too. But I also had many ups in 2020. I had losses in my family, but I also had additions. I experienced sad moments that filled me with anxiety but then I also experienced happy moments that made me sing at the top of my lungs. I have opened myself up to letting new people into my life but I have also closed some very necessary doors on other people. My livelihood has taken some unexpected turns and have made me feel sorrowful on so many occasions this year, but on the other hand, I decided to make some changes and go back to grad school for post-professional degree that will change my future and uplift my career.
2020 has been a year of building and improving myself, as well as my business and I decided to look at things from a different angle. I try to see the bright side of situations and not be reactive. I see things as learning experiences instead of disappointments. A wise man told me a few months ago, that if I live my life with too many rules and regulations, that I would miss out on life. I see that to be very true.
Therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to thank “2020” for all the reflections in the mirror it has shown to me, and made me realize that I have so many things on my list to be thankful for. 2020 has taught me to live. Not with precautions, not with hesitation, just full force ahead. Believing that everything that comes my way, comes with good intentions. I will not shy away from the roads that look crooked, I will just navigate them as they come. Being content with just existing is no longer the plan. Sticking to the same plan is no longer the plan. I want to laugh loud and often. I want to sit in silence and enjoy the company of the person I care for. I want to be unapologetically me and enjoy the fact that someone is on my team. No worries, is something I always tend to say, and I want to mean it every time.
So as the year “2020” comes to a close, I just want to say thank you for all the downs which made me appreciate my ups so much more. Thank you for all the winding roads that made me appreciate the straight ones. All in all, I have really lived this year. I have entertained the idea of love this year. I have worked hard this year and seen the fruits of my labor. It has been a pretty good ride 2020. So yeah….thanks.
Your growth I see and hear is wonderful. Your pictures say it all. That smile says it all. A toast to you in 2021!!!!
