It’s New Year’s Eve and we are hours away from putting this rollercoaster of a year behind us. This year was definitely the year of vision and clarity. Most of us got a reality check and some of us became better human beings because of it. It was like the year of exposure. Countless people’s character was exposed. There were a lot of sad and disappointing moments, but there were also a lot of growing moments. A lot of us will be entering 2021 a few friends short, and some of us will be entering the new year with stronger bonds than we had before. This year I realized what was really important. I saw the beauty in the small things. I usually appreciate the small things, but now I appreciate the little accomplishments and gestures even more. 2020 has been a draining year, and I’m currently feeling drained as I type this, but I know it will ultimately get better.
I’m going to take what I learned from this year and apply it to the new year. A lot of horrible things happened, but I still have a lot to be thankful for in the midst of all the chaos. I want to keep heading in a positive direction and make better choices. I want to focus on what’s right instead of focusing on what’s wrong. If there’s one thing I learned over the last 5 years is that Life is Short. It feels slow when you’re young, but as soon as you hit your mid-twenties (about 24) life goes from neutral to drive and the years just starts to fly by. My advice to Everyone is to focus on the people who love you instead of the people who hate you. Save your time and energy for the things that matter and bring you joy. Make Memories, love hard and laugh harder. Work on yourselves, and practice self-care. I wish everyone the best in 2021 and I hope everything works out for your good. Much love and happiness to you all! ❤ God Bless! XOXO – Elle.
