Everything that has happened this year is an eye-opener for us that life can change within a twinkle of an eye. However, it made me realize that tough times come to test our resilience, our mental strength, and our humanity.
The year 2020 has brought unimaginable changes to the way we live and carry out ourselves. How then have you handled 2020? What lessons are you moving with unto the next year? Are you moving to 2021 a new person?
Indeed it has been one hell of a year that I would not want to experience even in the next life. But again, it has shown me that regardless of the challenges, there was a lot more I could do. Working from home pushed me even better to achieve my goals; the pressure that comes with a change in environment is unimaginable. With the destructions everywhere I had no choice but to plan myself; I found myself doing the most!
This made me think that the new normal is more starting to feel like "business as usual." And what we can do is to identify what 2020 has taught us and what we can do to navigate the future crisis.
Despite companies closing doors, revenue streams drying up, and supply chains uprooted, inspirational stories have emerged that highlight how people have risen to the challenge, and truly this is amazing!
It means at least someone somewhere saw an opportunity in a challenging time and went for it; it shows that difficult times got nothing on us, and regardless of the situation, we have to keep pushing.
Hopefully, you handled this year resiliently and with a positive attitude because our challenges are not yet over. We might be looking forward to a new changed year (2021) but who knows what the future holds?
I would encourage each one of us to handle the next year just the same way we handled 2020. If the pandemic made you invent a new business, continue doing it come 2021, if it pushed you to work extra hours, continue with the same spirit.
Let the next year not interfere with the daily routine 2020 pressured you to create. At least it made you build a new habit. I would like to know how you have handled this year because, for me, it was just a day at a time; I was and is still hopeful that the year 2021 will be a lot better.
