Thank God 2020 is over. Twenty twenty will be one of the legendary years. Perhaps in the previous year, none of us would predict what would happen in 2020. The world suddenly changed significantly, just like that.
I would say it was the year of losing. So many things we lost. Many people lost their jobs. Many people lost opportunities. Many people lost their mental health. Many people even lost their simple reasons to smile. And the worst is, many people lost their lives and lives of people they love.
But after all, if you're still here today, congratulations. You just survived 2020. It's such an achievement. For me, 2020 wasn't really the year to achieve more or set higher goals. It was simply the year to survive, to feel enough, and to be grateful and appreciate what you have. It was the year that life taught us to be stronger, to accept the uncontrollable, to prepare for the worst yet still be hopeful and faithful for the best.
Twenty twenty one.
Now we're in another year. Still, the mess is not gone yet. We all might still be traumatized by the loss and deep pain we experienced last year, but as we all know good things can come to an end, so can bad things.
With every losing, there are rooms for healing and restoration. We may not know exactly what, how, or when, but we know this too will pass. We know days can still be brighter. We can get used to what we can't change. We can find reasons to smile and enjoy life again. Even when everything is ruined, we can still get up and manage to collect all the broken pieces. We can still rebuild it one by one.
Just don't lose hope. Keep our eyes on the bright side. Things may not go back normally overnight, but we've been through the worst. Hopefully things will just keep getting better from here. Never give up to see better days.
Take your time to heal. Take your time to accept the unacceptable. That's hard, but never lose your faith and hope. We're all in this together. We will see the brighter days again, together.
