The Year that was 2020 (Part 4)

Reading time: 2 mins

Tonight, on December 31st, I have to exercise gratitude as doing so has got me through some of the toughest times in my life. 

I am grateful I’m able to type this at the end of 2020. 

I am grateful that the family and friends who entered the 2020 lockdown with me are still here. 

I am grateful to have been able to put food on the table, and thanks to a web link from a dear friend, have packs of roti delivered to my door (yes, roti to my door!). 

I am grateful that when I sleep at night, I can breathe easy. 

I am grateful I was able to dedicate time to personal and professional growth, as well as time to reflect and be still.

I am grateful that friends hit by the virus have now recovered. 

Having lost someone unexpectedly some years ago, I know what it’s like to find difficulty in looking forward, and the fear ‘traumatic grief’ brings when planning for the future.

If you’ve lost loved ones this year, please accept my condolences. We will remember and continue to remember them. Don’t ever stop talking about your loved ones and when the clock strikes 12, tell them “Happy New Year” too. Feel no way about doing so! Keep the memories alive.

I’d like to wish you a happy New Year, and all the best for 2021. 

May your New Year be a year full of positive comebacks and opportunities.

2021, be kind to us!
