Reflections on the year 2020
Well, it is now 2021 and we survived the crazy year that was 2020. For some, it was a miserable year. For others, including me, it was a year full of positive changes. I made the decision to pursue my love of writing and become a published author. I was able to spend quality time with my family. I bought a new car that I love. Thanks to Marie Kondo, I was inspired to begin tidying my house and I never felt better about throwing stuff away as I did after reading her book, "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up."
Of course, let's address the elephant in the room: COVID-19. I had to get used to taking a mask with me whenever I went into a public place. When shopping, we had to account for our stock of toilet paper and get one extra pack if we were even remotely getting low. Scheduling became much more necessary, as many businesses reduced their hours of operation or simply closed all together. We also had to make time to help the kids with the extra homework they were given after they were put on remote schooling. Yes, it was a crazy year.
However, I enjoyed eating in the restaurants that remained open because we usually got right in, had excellent service and excellent quality food, and plenty of space around us so we could visit with each other and hear what we were saying!
The best part of 2020 was my creativity went into overdrive and I experienced some of the happiest moments of my life. I look forward to the amazing things 2021 will bring!
