The year 2020 is about to end and with the roller coaster ride of this year, this unpredictable year has changed me to some extent. Although I am optimistic about 2021.
A list of new vocabulary became the language of everyday. Corona, lockdown, isolation, positive, virus, pandemic, quarantine, vaccine and so on. Life has never been the same since.
The anger, frustration and helplessness of people spiked along with the cases worldwide. It brought out emotions in mixed bag. Some counted on blessings and bonding while for others it was separation and desperation. Along with physical setback, emotional well being took a toll on people. With work from home and virtual classrooms, meet and greet, celebrations, everything was in an online avatar. Unlock brought in a breather for the economy. People are getting back to work, but fear still looms large. The vaccine coming out brings in a gentle ray of hope.
As we enter the last day of 2020, what are some of the thoughts and prayers that you want to fill in 2021 with? I would like to paint the coming year with vibrant hues of positive vibes.
Prayers to all the departed souls who fought bravely against the virus. Heartfelt gratitude to all the Health care workers, Sanitation workers and the innumerable kind souls who lent a helping hand by contributing in their own way, in this fight against corona. May the world see better days ahead!
So…Whenever this time of year rolls around, I go through the ‘normal’ thought process. I question mortality, my life, and assess what I’ve done in a year. The truth is though, that I feel somewhat fulfilled with this years progress, even though it’s 2020 the year It doesn’t seem that I’ve gotten very far on the surface but, I am working towards my dreams.
Basically, I’ve become a totally different person in a year, I’ve come closer to who I am meant to be, I have let go of a lot of baggage, and I have become overall happier. Not to say I don’t have my dark days, not to say that I don’t still get anxious and overwhelmed, and not to say that I am the perfect image of a stable person. For me though, progress has definitely come of absolute shit storms.
So many things happened in this year 2020. I was so worried about my family and about our future. Felt like a Demon is going to overwhelmed us. Like we are going to see the end of humanity. Because everywhere God’s creation is losing their moral.
But still some positivity standing by our side. We cried..we fought and we learned. I feel it is a total waste if I can not learn from this crucial situation. Every situation of this pandemic has taught me new lessons.Here are my learnings…
See the brighter side. Yes.. if you can not see the brighter side you can not stay positive.
Health is wealth. Though I know it but I realized in this 2020 that your biggest asset is your health.
Boost your immunity. The most important thing to do with our health is boost immunity. To fight with your enemy stay strong and build strength.
Feed your mind with positivity because mental health matters. Read books,keep journal,practise gratitude etc.
Family comes first. All I was trying to keep safe my family by taking utmost care.
Luxury doesn’t mean show off. Luxury means spending time with your near and dear one.
Don’t consume over. We need very few things to live happily. So, embrace minimalism. It does not mean less; it means simplicity .
Love nature. We must know that what we did to the nature over and over was harming our enviroment.
Nature can heal itself. The whole pandemic situation had a great impact on nature. Clean rivers, beaches, green trees, clean air all had proved that nature has healing power.
Your financial condition matters a lot. What we do to make our living should be more strong. Because you need a financial support any time.
Be kind. Value others labour. Don’t lose your moral value.
However the year is going to end up. But hopes should not die. Always hope for the best. Hope has the power to keep you alive.
As 2021 approaches, I am trying my hardest to leave all of this negativity behind me. Goodbye to the most challenging year, on a global scale, this century. You tried to break us, but you did not succeed. You will not be missed!
Best wishes to all of you on New Year 2021. Stay safe and stay strong. Hope your wishes come true and this new year will bring colour and happiness to your life.
