20’s!! My gratefulness series was originated because I realized that 2020 was the last year of my beloved twenties, as bland as it may sound it meant something for me. The past years have flown by; I’ve had a blast! As we all know, there is no such thing as a short or a long minute, but this year, each day felt fuller, as if I was truly mindful of every second.
I could absolutely not treat 2020 as if it wasn’t a good year. No second/excitement from the last year of my 20’s shall be wasted! I have to admit the big 29+1 has been on the back of my mind, and I still don’t really how I feel about it. Thanks to the stay-at-home-retreat I’ve experienced this year, I somewhat managed to enjoy my 20’s a bit longer and get ready for the next step (still can’t mention it, I live in the present! Haha).
Granted, this reason might seem absurd so far, but at the contrary it holds all the essence I wished to diffuse through this initiative. What I really wanted to share is that you can turn ANYTHING, as insignificant as it may seem into a blessing. It is all about perceptions. My brain seems to get that and does all the work for me, which is great. I’d even push it and say positivity feels like an unshakable part of me. Nowadays, people tend to forget the option of looking at the bright side, this is why I initiated this sharing journey.
Being positive is something everyone can learn, and if you decide to follow that way, you’ll soon enough realize who easy life can be. I realized it is important to step back from the outcome sometimes and think about what, who, or which specific event got us there. I guarantee if you switch things up a bit, you might become thankful to someone or a situation that seemed frustrating at first. "Everything happens best case scenario" & "I’m at the right place, at the right time", are two of my absolute favorite sentences, as they help me feel like everything happens as it should and allows my doubts to fade out.
This unconventional year got me into writing and made me want to spread more love and positivity. Before I let you celebrate, I ask you to find at least one thing you loved about this year, and to not let it go you by in vain.
Thanks to the people who invested time to read my words, it means so much to me.
Thanks to all the lessons I’ve learned and to the great people I’ve encountered. Remember, we never know which reason will make us go through the season, and how it might just, turn into, the journey of a lifetime.
Thank you, 2020.
With love and warn wishes,
