Happy New Year, my lovelies.
Personally, I don’t feel any different but I guess that’s to be expected with what’s happened in the past year. Such unpredictability makes it tough to know how to feel about the upcoming future.
2020 was a yin-yang year for so many of us: so many ups and downs, conflicting emotions, sadness and worry about the pandemic, and yet at the same time, gratitude for what we’re already so blessed with. It still confuses me even now.
When we first ushered in 2020, the phrase that had come to my mind back then was the one that says “Hindsight is 20/20.” It’s a phrase that means that it is much easier to understand situations you’ve experienced in the past when they’re analyzed later on; and I think that 2020 – and its following period – will serve as a perfect example of that phrase.
The future provides a different perspective to things when you’ve had enough time in between then and now. There are lessons that came with last year that we’ve already begun to understand, but I have a feeling that there’s still a lot more to appreciate and realize.
Figuratively speaking, I fell to my knees, downtrodden, many times in 2020. I’m still trying to figure many things out, trying to find my feet again. My one wish for myself and for every one of you is that we will remain strong, bull-headed and stubborn enough to hold on to our dreams and our visions for life no matter what comes our way.
I hope you and I find what we’re looking for in 2021. Here’s to a new chapter.
