What Are You Celebrating?

On a normal given day, I’d be all happy and jolly to welcome the New Year. It always signifies big major changes on my end. I’d have my resolutions, typical goals list to tackle, a lot of ideas to explore and try …

Not this year. I am tired.

2020 was absolutely exhausting. Honestly, I had to step away from the online world here and there because life simply happened. There were days where I had to question myself more than necessary. All because everything is becoming so stagnant, repetitive, unhealthy, isolating, disturbing, and overwhelming.

What about 2021? What exactly are we celebrating right now? Because it can’t be about this Pandemic. It is still ongoing. There’s no sign that it will get better any day or so. It’s basically just walking into a whole new year with a different date … but the same old drama. For us, we are grateful to see another day. To have been fortunate enough to stay healthy.

We thought 2020 would bring about a lot of the things that we wanted. Little did we know, it was actually the year where we learned to appreciate everything that we still have.

What about you guys? How is everything on your end?

    2020 was absolute crazy pants, and it’s still not over! 2021 has started off on a crazy note, as well. But we’re still doing well over here.

  • Joan @probulldog

    Things have not been the same since the pandemic hit the country… The world has lost many people. We should just appreciate and cherish what we have now and hope for a lasting solution to the virus.

  • Monica Simpson

    I love that last part. This year taught us to appreciate what we still have. It’s very true! I just wish that lesson didn’t take all year to learn. 😉

    Great post for a little life reflection! I am actually celebrating my happiness and thankfulness that despite this pandemic going on, me and my family are safe and healthy, and that, we didn’t lose our jobs which we really need in this point of time. I’m grateful that I’m able to do the things I love to do right now.

  • Nikki Wayne

    Well, I’m so sad for the others of course but thankful that I was able to finish 2020 healthy and happy.

  • Sundeep

    The year 2020 has taught me to be more patient and compassionate with myself and others. And 2021 is like just another calendar year and we were all getting used to writing 01.01.2021 instead of 01.01.20.

  • Emman Damian

    I think despite the challenges this year, we should still be grateful for our safety and small blessings coming in. It has been really tough but we will all make it. Stay safe!

  • Catalina

    I am sorry that you see things this way. But I can say that 2020 was a very hard year, but there happened a lot of beautiful things too. We moved in another place, but we are all ok and my kid feel better in the new school and found new friends. I am grateful for that!

  • Mae

    I feel you! 2020 was one exhausting year and still dragging… But, as long as we are alive, healthy, and our families are safe, that’s something to celebrate. We always have to look on the brighter side, no matter how dark it feels sometimes.

  • Crystal Carder

    2020 was an emotionally draining year and it almost don’t feel like 2021 will be much better. But I am celebrating a fresh start this year and things finally turning around!

  • Stephanie Pass

    I’m not sure what I’m celebrating. I guess that we have done a great job being cooped up in the house all together and we all get along really good without much arguing and fighting, even among my four kids.

  • Marysa

    I feel like 2020 was a good year to catch up on all the things we didn’t have time for. I did a lot of projects and house projects that I would never have had the time for.

  • Ryan Escat

    I learnt a lot of things this year. Pandemic teaches me to be more thrifty and to care more about others.

  • Mosaic Designs

    As you rightfully said, 2020 has been very challenging but i am very hopeful about this year, it is going to be fantastic.

  • Emily Fata

    This year, I’m celebrating having the opportunity to express my creative energy and to create new projects I’m passionate about!

  • Mow

    I can understand how you feel. I am honesty placing all my bets on the covid vaccine. Until it gets mass distributed, I think things might be like this for the time being. That being said, there’s always a bright side – we get to spend more time with close loved ones. 🙂

    Everything is going good. 2020 was a blessing of a year for my family. I gave birth to my son and we stayed healthy and for that im grateful.

  • Mayuri Saxena

    2020 wasn’t easy for me but it was full of learning and appreciation. This year I am not planning anything in advance except for resolutions to keep me healthy mentally and physically.
    Happy New Year!

    Right now I’m just celebrating surviving 2020! That should be enough!

    I hope this year will be great and more blessings. I am really grateful that we are still alive.

    I am not sure what I am celebrating for but I guess it has to be making it to 2021 despite what I had been through last year. It was tough…so tough..

  • Emily Fata

    Right now, I’m celebrating this fresh start to a brand new year!

    I celebrate me! 2021 is all about self-love.

    I am scared and tired for the year 2020 and I hope 2021 will be a better year for us.

  • Trisha Velarmino

    Hi Angela! You´re right, there is so much to celebrate and thank for in the year that just ended. In my end, I´m really celebrating for the people around me and the time for my self that I got to have during this time.

  • Jules Sank

    Although the year comes with several challenges. However, there’s the need to be grateful for the people and things we have in our lives.

    2020 taught us great lessons. We should look forward to positivity in 2021.

  • Marjie Mare

    I am celebrating being alive and every little thing that makes my life complete.
