Farewell 2020

It became a tradition, every year I would sit down to reflect on the year that has passed. 2020 has been a different year that started on the wrong foot. Instead of happiness and celebrations we saw our country get flooded and burnt down.

We thought that this was the worst thing that could happen and then we were hit with Covid.

In the last few days I read a lot of farewells and saw a common theme in most of them. The majority wrote about this tough year and how happy they are to say good riddance to 2020.

Although it has been a tough year for many of us, I think that 2020 will be a year to remember. It has been a year that taught me so many things about myself and others.

It started with time to reflect and change course of action. Have a greater understanding of the things that matter and the importance of being kind to each other and unified towards a common goal.

I learnt new skills and new ways of working with the new working from home arrangement and I became more resilient. I never thought that I would enjoy this flexibility and that by working from home you can achieve so much more.

This was also a great opportunity to meet new people and learn about their experiences and challenges. It truly is amazing how much that has been achieved in such a short and challenging time.

This was also an amazing opportunity to discover my family all over again. To be grateful for these wonderful kids that makes me feel so proud of the young people they have become and my hubby that shows me every day what determination and humility is all about.

It also taught me about myself, what I like and dislike, the ability to be adaptive and see the Half Glass Full in times of crisis and focus on the positive things as it helps the mind and body.

I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy New Year. Farewell 2020, 2021 I’m hoping that you will be kind to us.
