Alas … an update! The year 2020 took the whole world by surprise. It’s like opening a Pandora’s box. While we are all still facing a lot of challenges, the pandemic has also brought light that there is still hope for humanity. That there’s good people left in this world. We coped, we managed, we adjusted. We celebrated, we cried, we accepted our losses. A whole year had passed and felt like there’s nothing else that happened in our lives and yet, there’s a lot also happening as far as what this pandemic brought upon us. Then 2021 came and it sure felt like a duplicate of the previous year. We tried to cope, adjust, recover … but to what extent? So I personally took the time to focus on our family, safety, and ways to stay afloat.
That felt like a very long time. My mental wellness was also on the line.
Little by little things felt a lot more “normal” … whatever that means at this point. Honestly, I am just glad we are built to be more resilient. New Year means a new beginning right? Then again, what am I saying here? It’s not like the pandemic is going anywhere. It is still here, we are all still trying our best to fight it, avoid it, and find cure for it. To be honest, it is here to stay whether we like it or not. Throughout the year of 2020 we all have been wishing for it to go away. Then by 2021 we were hoping for a cure. Here we are now at 2021. Did anything change? A bit. But there are too many things to consider. Such as variants and how it will also affect the lives of our children. It’s like the world had stopped revolving, a year had passed without much happening for us and at the same time the whole world had changed as well. We could keep ranting, complaining, and even put blame on others … but what is that going to do? Not much honestly.
Throughout the year of 2020 and 2021, I have taken a step back on a lot of things to appreciate what we have. I wanted to find my voice again. Put a goal in all things, and I did exactly that. A mindful reset. So this time around it won’t just be any kind of content.
