goodbye 2020

I love this time of the year, the days between the years, when everything gets a little blurry and you enjoy the time with your family and friends. But this year it's different. I am sitting here with a heavy heart and can't help but wonder how we ended up here. 

This past year was on so many levels not the one for me and with everything that has been going on in the world, it doesn't feel right to me to write my personal recap as if it's just another year gone by. Because it isn't. We're still in the middle of a global pandemic and this past year will be one we'll never forget.

So if this is not a recap, what is it then?
Honestly? A farewell. My chance to say goodbye to a very rough year. 
2020, where do I begin. From being home 24/7 to having a full-time job, from making plans for the future to having breakdowns, from going on holidays with the best people to meeting on digital platforms, from being in my comfort zone to getting out of it, from being scared to really appreciating health and my loved ones more than ever before. This year has been a wild ride and I am more than ready for it to finally come to an end.

One of my biggest learnings of the year is to take everything as it comes, make the best of it and not to worry too much. And that's also one of the things I would love to get better at in 2021 - lower my stress levels and take better care of my mental health.

With that being said, I wish you all nothing but the best for 2021. Happy New Year! Let's hope for better days and many new memories. However you may celebrate this year, I hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful New Year's Eve. 

Stay safe and sound my friends.
Love, S.
