Dear 2020

This year has been very challenging for all of us. A lot of things happened and changed.

2020, has been the most unusual year. The end of a decade and a start. It could be the worst year but I personally think that this year is an essential phase for all of us.

I, myself experience a lot of challenging situations. I lost so many things and fell in the abyss of confusion. I feel like my life stopped this year. I was so disappointed and dispirited. I have a lot of things and what ifs play in my head. My views and aspirations were rattled. The year that I thought I could finally pick and build myself; the year that I thought I could finally be better. But, I crushed and crumbled.


Thank you, 2020.

It may seem a dark place for all of us but I realize that this year thought all of us in a hard way. We were able to realize what matters to us the most and appreciate the things that we have. I understand if sometimes, it’s hard to see the light in this situation. After all, we experience and deal with life differently. But, we are not less of a person if we crumble and cry over something small or what the people around us saying that it’s something not serious. Whatever we feel at the moment and whatever we react to a certain situation is valid. Just because we cry over a scratch on our knee doesn’t mean we are weak.

We all did a great job this year and I’m proud to everyone. Despite of everything, here we are. We are all doing our best to move forward even if it’s really difficult. It’s okay if we are taking a tiny step. Let’s be gentle and be patient to ourselves. We got this!

We are growing and making a progress even if we feel like we don’t.

Thank you, 2020.

I’m able to find the courage and tap my capacity to find peace within me. I learn to let go the things that no longer serves me. I may have lost so many things but I found myself appreciating the little things that keeps me going. I realize that, I’m actually able to build myself. Actually, this year allows me to re-evaluate my aspirations. It helps me to see what matters to me the most and focus on rebuilding myself. It’s a long way to go and it’s okay if everything is not yet figured out. This year thought me that it’s okay to look forward for the sun even if the rain is still pouring. My faith is strengthen and became more appreciative with my present.

This has been a nerve-wracking journey but I’m grateful because we are able to make it.

Thank you, 2020. You served your purpose and it is time to bid farewell.

Let’s go hand in hand and welcome, 2021. Let’s face the new year with a peaceful and grateful heart.

Thank you, 2020. Welcome, 2021.

She's a dreamer. Hopes to be lost in oblivion but the truth is, she just wants to be seen and heard. In quest within and lover of life. This, too, shall pass so I will keep going ; I still don't know. I'll rest for the mean time.
