Last year was a tough one to say the least! We saw suffering and sadness, isolation and frustration, amongst the many other emotions that continued to fluctuate. Yet between the heartbreak and hopelessness, there was still something to be gained in all that we lost.
It might sound corny but there truly is something to learn through every trouble. It presents us with an opportunity to learn and grow as we make it out the other end. Perhaps we never felt gratitude and appreciation the way we do now?
As we so fortunately begin to move back into familiar patterns and life as we knew it before, it can be cathartic to reflect back on the light we discovered through darkness.
2020 gave us a moment to pause, slow down and focus our attention inwards. Through the uncertainty we gained a clearer focus on our priorities and passions. We saw unity and community spirit like we have never seen before. We saw kindness, courage and strength.
Let us try and focus on this, embracing the good as we move forward.
