Lessons of 2020 + things I am looking forward this 2021
Today is the first day of the new year 2021. Ang daming essay sa timeline ko and I love reading them that’s why I was inspired to do the same and post it here.
2020 started with a bang… bang from volcano ashfall. Nakakaloka!
My son was confined in the hospital last February and then the lockdown started last March… and the rest is history.
2020 was a tough year, I thought that being on a lockdown will be easy for us who are used to staying at home most of the time, yes perhaps compared to others who work outside or used to going out, but no, we also struggled. Nakakawindang yung di ka makalabas, yung di mo makasama pamilya mo na asa ibang lugar…. nakaka praning!!!
It’s hard not to have a vehicle during ECQ, since there’s no public vehicle available. Ito yung panahon na aasahan mo talaga ang mga kapitbahay mo kasi sila ang unang tutulong sayo. I am thankful to have caring neighbors who usually ask us if we need something in the drugstore or grocery store.
I am happy to be one of the organizers of the virtual palengke in our subdivision to help buyers like me who can’t go out to have something on our table and at the same time this helped the sellers earn some income especially that some lost their jobs.
Ito yung panahon na ipagpapasalamat mo kung may emergency fund ka na naitabi at the same time, papaisipin ka at lalabas ang pagiging creative mo dahil kailangan mong kumita kahit papaano. Na dapat hindi lang isang tao ang nag-iearn ng income sa family or dapat may iba ka pang other source of income besides your salary.
2020 also thought me not only think of myself, but for others too. Ito yung taon na ang dami kong iniyak dahil sa habag sa nangyayari sa mundo at ibang tao. I am thankful that I have some resources to share with others. I am blessed to be one of the instruments that God used to help others even how small it is through the Pantawid Gutom Project that I organized.
2020 thought me that health is wealth. Yung kahit mayaman ka, kahit mapera ka, kapag nagkasakit ka at wala pang proven medicine to heal you, walang magagawa ang pera mo.
2020 made my faith stronger too. Wala kang ibang kakapitan kundi ang faith mo and hope that everything will be okay after all the struggles you’ve been to.
I am really thankful that my family survived 2020. Not being sick is such a great blessings already, having an income and food on the table is another thing.
This new year 2021, I am hopeful that God will shower us again His unlimited blessings. He is a generous God and I know He will not let us down.
I am claiming for more projects from brands that I love and use and also from PRs that are easy to work with. I am praying that the COVID virus will be gone already and that everyone’s life will go back to normal.
I hope that I will be able to read more books, learn new things and perhaps earn from it (like stocks trading, SEO, have more creative and helpful contents etc).
I’ll be turning 40 this year also. I don’t know what to feel about it, I have a lot of travel dreams that I want to fulfill and things I want to accomplish that I hope I’ll be able to do.
I am praying that we will not be sick and I will do my best to reach my target weight and be healthy. I hope that I will be able to control myself from eating and being a couch potato until the end of the year.
I hope that more people will have a peace of mind. Praying that those who lost their jobs will be hired again or find other source of income that will provide for their needs.
Let’s all claim that 2021 will be a better year for everyone. AMEN!!!
