2020 has departed, may it rest in pieces.
2021 has arrived and these fresh 23 days of this new chapter has been cautious as well as hopeful. Sure, these new strain of COVID that have hit are alarming, but between the vaccines that have rolled out and the continuation of staying safe, hopefully the virus will soon die out.
Just last November our country voted for its President, a leader to lead our home back to being a safe, fair melting pot. New hopes are in sight, I look forward to witnessing the good that’s in store for our future.
The news continues to be filled with virus sickness and death, filled with chaos on the Capitol and extra security for a smooth Inauguration. A constant rollercoaster that has me watching less news in order to stay positive. Now, I’m not ignorant as to what’s happening in the world..I watch a certain favorite news program every night to stay up to date, but hours of news is too depressing.
2020 ended on a gut wrenching note for my family, my sister was a head on collision as she was on her way home from a friend’s house Christmas night. A drunk driver hit her car head on as well as the two cars that were behind hers. Thankfully the driver behind my sister was an off duty officer who called for help as well as checked on everyone involved in the accident. The drunk driver died on site, my sister was unconscious. In fact, she doesn’t remember the accident or even leaving her friend’s house that night. An officer called my Dad who then informed us all on what happened. It’s that phone call that you never want to get. Thankfully my sister is healing, she survived walking away with a few cuts and bruises.
The entire experience was a whirlwind. Last year was a whirlwind. I think that this new year will be better though, at least that’s what I’m hoping for.
A lot of lessons were definitely learned last year, lessons that in an odd way have left me with new inspirations as we continue to move forward.
Working on a new book, new opportunities and enjoying the simplicities in life. This is what I’m looking forward to in 2021.
Never take anything for granted…time and death run on their own clocks. Make memories now, love loudly.
Life is a paper lantern sky, ignites it…marvel at it.
