My Dearest 2020!
I usually hate goodbyes, but in this case, I love ’em! Funnily enough, you’ve shown me how some goodbyes are actually easier than others!
2020, you were truly an unexpected year, the past 12 months have been like no other. But, when I could, I made the best out of you – an unprecedented time, yet there are many things I am thankful for – especially the lessons.
One of the most important things I have learned is to cherish the time I spend with others, as well as the amount of time I have with them. I often think of our lives before quarantine, the simple pleasures. I miss ‘em!
I have also learned to appreciate the people around me even more, including myself. 2020, you have brought me face-to-face with my loved ones and brought challenges for us to overcome together. I cherish my loved ones and appreciate their love and support more than ever before. I cherish my friends and their ability to make me laugh no matter the circumstances. And most importantly, I have learned how to cherish myself. Spending months and months stuck in my home with only the company of myself for the most part, I’ve had ample time to work on the person I am and gain a little more appreciation for my body and my mind.
However, above all else, I have learned what it means to be empathetic toward others. Through inspiring movements and heavy losses, I have been given a glimpse into the struggles of the people around me. I have learned to not only acknowledge the struggles of others but feel and fight for them as well.
2020, farewell! ✌️🤍💫
Peace and Forever Blessings,
