2020 has been a roller coaster to say the very least. A large portion of the year has been spent in quarantine which we would have never seen coming. We have participated in social issues and politics. To distract us from all of the dire things happening, we have also participated in memes, tik toks, fads, and games. 2020 has definitely been a year to remember; for some people it is one that they would rather forget.
We are on the precipice of a brand new year, 2021. While this simply is another day on the calendar and will categorically be the same as any other day, new years marks when people make resolutions and breathe new life into their goals and ambitions. Also, it is a time to be thankful for what has happened and looking forward to what is to come.
There are many events in a person’s life which brings about reflection and thankfulness. Birthdays, Thanksgiving, and New Years just to name a few. These holidays or events are an excuse for us to reflect, but try to bring the notion of reflection into your every day. There doesn’t need to be a special event for you to think back and learn from your life.
Even if you don’t have any grand resolutions for the coming year, remember this: you survived. You made it through 2020, albeit with a few bruises, but you made it.
For me, I see 2021 as a year to continue focusing on what makes me happy and feeds my soul. This takes the form of yoga, baking, reading, etc. It may be different for everyone, but I encourage you to take the coming year as a chance to renew your focus with a sense of sentimental reflection of the mountain you hiked called 2020.
