It had been a long and short year, isn’t it? It is already 2021!! Mentally I am still trying to process as to how 2020 flew right after the lock down happened. Started with a World War III rumor, moved on to the virus followed by a pool of thoughts overwhelming us while we were under lock down. Some people took up baking, while some learnt to give time to family. Massive lay offs, a sudden work from home routine for the rest while the stay home population took the test of time dealing with the earners 24×7. People got bored and they gave major sales to the markets while the suicide rates went up along with corona death rates. People lost their jobs in all working sectors while some businessmen made money by selling certificates over zoom calls. Much to the surprise, people kept their spirits high and welcomed the festivities with much enthusiasm. I am talking about the U. S. Presidential Election. That was a major!
Oh well, just when the time arrived for us to make new promises to break, eventually, this year made it quite an unusual happening; more of “what we learnt” and few “this year I would like to.” Looks like 2020-won; or should I say 2021!
Hoping that we heal from the grudges we are holding back, the safe plays that lead us to nowhere, the petty choices that make us toxic lovers/coworkers and hoping that the world has learnt the virtue of gratitude. As I write my first blog of 2021, I also realized a thing: isn’t it the 21st year of the 21st century? A double yet again……fingers crossed with a lot of sinking feeling in my stomach.
But none the less; a very Happy New Year, Earthlings!
