I think that we would all agree that 2020 took us all by surprise and forced us to re-look at the way we live and reflect on what has become the “New Normal”. As we approach the end of 2020, I thought it was a good time to pen my personal list of some highlights arising from this exceptional year.
“I witnessed some amazing creative initiatives, from online cooking masterclasses from renowned Michelin star chefs making gourmet cooking accessible to ordinary households, international exhibitions gone virtual and online concerts, just to mention a few. In a world where creative initiatives were becoming few and far between, the pandemic forced many of us to think out of the box and dig deep to be able to survive.”
“It was an opportunity for us to re-connect with our family and friends as we realized how short life is and how we needed each other in order to make it through these tough times”
“I was grateful for everything I had, whilst witnessing the distress and losses that others went through.”
“This year made me appreciate the diversity of the world we live in and realized sadly how racial and gender discrimination are still very present in most parts of the world.”
2021 Here We Come..
I have never been one to make “good” resolutions at the start of a new year. Instead, I chose to put together a list of questions that I would hopefully, as 2021 unravels, be able to come up with my own personal answers:
- What would I do differently to step out of my comfort zone?
- What can I do to inspire kindness to others?
- What can I do to be kind to myself?
- How will I take care of my wellbeing, both physical and emotional?
- What would I say ‘no’ to?
- What would I do to make next year really matter?
We all have our own list of personal questions that we would want to be answered. As we end 2020 and welcome 2021, my wish for you is that you have all your personal questions answered in the most meaningful way.
“Wishing you all good health”
