As Christmas comes closer and the year draws to an end, it’s time to round up what we’ve been up to — all things naughty and all things nice.
This year, we thought instead of putting us in a “Naughty” or “Nice” list, it would be good to have a completely new kind of list!
Hence, 2020 comes with its own special edition — the “I Am Trying My Best” list.
That’s what it’s been, isn’t it? A year of doing our best given the circumstances.
Sure we did some things naughty and many things nice. But mostly, it’s been a year of making sure we TRY our very best to keep out of mischief, stay safe, keep healthy and be happy.
It’s been a challenge…no doubt. But this “new normal” has unwrapped a “new you”. It’s revealed a level of resilience that you didn’t even know existed within yourself.
Are you counting your blessings and being grateful for what you have right now?
Now more than ever, do you stay in touch with family and friends to check if they are ok?
Did you try doing things that make you smile?
Have you discovered something new about yourself that you wouldn’t have known if not for the lockdown?
This year’s Christmas gift may be wrapped differently, but it comes with its abundance and blessings.
Give yourself a big pat on the back for how far you’ve come. And instead of wondering “Why is this happening?”, think “I’ve learned so much this year!”
By the way, in case you are wondering if you made it to the “I Am Trying My Best” list — yes you did. We all did!
