I was thinking of writing this post as a general review of the year 2020, then jump to now… But I though about it more and came to the conclusion that a lot of other bloggers might have done the same. So without further ado … “HAPPY 2021: +s and -s”

My 2020 in a Nutshell.

2020 was the road we all didn’t want to travel. 

It felt as if Mother Earth is out to get us, from global pandemic to local natural disasters. 2020 would go down in history as the year when Mother Earth just said “IDGAF”

In all honesty, my 2020 started wonky.
I went to a dream trip with my family, which I will probably create a back post… We had fun, everyone enjoyed it — and is planning to make a come back.

And a week prior the trip I was hired by this well-known company… and I was really excited about it. Sounds great right? WRONG! It was horrendous. As soon as I got back from the trip, the mystic hallucination of wonderland whenever you go on a trip shattered. Real life adulting mode must once again be turned-on and get on to work.

My “new” work, which I may or may not create a * short * back post wasn’t as awesome as I thought it would be. In fairness, I learned a lot from this company. It might not be as progressive as the company is exuding to the general public though I learned a lot from the owner about how to handle a business and how and when to “strike the iron”.

And then I got a new work again.. after a month or so. You know those lists we normally read online where they say “Do’s and Don’ts in the workplace”? Well my time at this company made me realize and see a lot of the DON’T things. The business itself is doing extremely well, even the service to clients are top notched. However, the inner workings of the company isn’t exactly something be proud about. For the short stay that I had with them, my alarm bells kept ringing on every turn. NOTE : this is the shortest job I ever had, like I quit within 5 days — that’s how bad it was.

All in all, I learned a lot from that experience especially on how to make your company / business grow. How to push your products and the inner workings of a well-oiled machinery when it comes to Marketing your product. The best lesson I learned is how to communicate properly, whether with your boss, client, staff, co-worker, and etc.

I am Thankful For . . .

I can say that my 2020 ended in a positive note, and my 2021 started with a better footing.

I am thankful for the opportunities that unexpectedly came.

I am thankful that my family and loved ones are healthy, and we have enough food to eat, and we get by everyday.

I am thankful for the love and support that I have been getting from everyone around me. It helps keep depression and anxiety at bay.

Wrapping things up

I realize in this challenging time that the most beautiful flowers bloom against adversity. Whatever it maybe, however hard the challenges, whenever you feel stuck or alone… remember that you have your family and friends beside you, you are never truly alone. Lastly, do not forget that you are blessed. Being able to wake up everyday, thinking of what to do next, worrying about things others don’t understand, feeling pain and anger and happiness and love . . . these are the blessings that proves that you are still alive and well.
