Ending Up My 2020 With A Smile!

The year 2020 was a very challenging year for everyone. We witnessed a lot of sad stories, unexpected news, and many opportunities lost from this pandemic crisis. Somehow we live in different ways to survive in able to secure our health by not getting sick. After all, we passed this challenging year and we slowly getting back to our normal lives with safety protocols to follow. So let’s put a big smile on our faces to end the year 2020.

I became anxious and worried when this pandemic crisis happened this year. I was closely trapped on my last trip to Baguio when the whole province of Cebu was planning to lock down all borders in airports and seaports. Thankfully, we able to go back to Cebu on the last flight from Clark Airport to Mactan-Cebu Airport at exactly 12 A.M. and we went home safely with tears and hope. Things got worst when I decided to go back to Talisay City after a month of self-quarantine in Cebu City. Everything was so fast until the world was stopped. Everyone is doing part of this sad reality that we need to isolate ourselves in our respective homes. We went to our crazy times on dealing with anxiousness and fear about this pandemic crisis. From our 9 months of isolation, we gained life lessons that we could bring to our next life chapter in 2021. I can see big hopes and new opportunities coming in 2021 and I can feel it. Let’s put a smile on our faces in 2021!

Set Your Goals

A great way to start your new chapter in 2021 is to ask yourself, “What is my new goal?”. We set goals and life plans each year to make a resolution as a way to improve something even more. Write down the things you want to pursue and achieve in 2021. The easiest way to write down the things you want to achieve is to look back on the things you missed in 2020. I know that we missed a lot of things in 2020 and one of those is to visit the beach to relax. Give yourself a reward to relax at the beach or resort. There are few resorts open for local tourists and it might be your chance to visit one of those resorts for your relaxation. One of my personal goals for 2021 is to visit Moalboal and spend my time there at the beach area. I wanted to see a sunset on the beach while the sea waves coming.

So I wish that 2021 is a good year for everyone. I hope that there are no more lockdowns and pandemic outbreaks. Each of us will be rise up and have a normal life that can freely go anywhere without fear and hesitation. Soon we can have a vaccine and we are free to enjoy life and going somewhere to chase wild dreams.

Happy New Year, everyone! 🙂
