We’re halfway through 2020 and it feels like we’ve had 2 years wrapped in one.
I took a break from blogging because it just didn’t feel right. I found myself feeling a little out of sorts with all that’s happening in the world. Added to the pandemic outbreak, we witnessed mass outcry of various forms of social injustice all over the world. There seemed to be an awakening of sorts and I wondered why and why now? I kept thinking of all the families grieving and it hurt. I couldn’t help but wonder if and when it’ll all end.
It almost feels like we put too much pressure on 2020 and the year thought to give itself a break.
2020 for me has been bittersweet. I have had to make some of the most difficult decisions, take on new and exciting challenges, celebrate the joy of new life, enjoy the company of new friends, and let go of some old ones. I have received answers to prayers that I prayed for years, overcome a few fears and embraced life in all its fullness. This year has taught me the value of putting things in perspective and looking at the upside.
I am thankful for the presence of mind to go through these times. With all that’s happening it’s easy to lose sight of all the good things that have come my way. I’ve chosen to introspect because, in the midst of the storm, there’s been so much calm that I do not take for granted.
I still speak life into the rest of the year, because I believe 2020 is going to be our best year yet!
What has 2020 taught you so far?
