My thoughts on 2021 : New Year Musings
"Nothing can dim the light that shines from within." - Maya Angelou
2021's entrance was probably one of the most quiet that I've ever encountered in my 39 years of existence. With the absence of massive fireworks and social distancing protocols are still being observed, we gladly bid 2020 adieu and hope that this year will be much better. If you asked me what I was doing as we counted down to the end of 2020, I'd tell you that I was quietly in my study area, working on my laptop. With my twins and my parents sleeping soundly and Paul sitting right beside me, it may not sound very happening but to be, I got everyone who mattered around me and that's just what I needed. Of course, we had a nice family dinner with my sister and her family on video call. I guess this is really the digital age where technology makes being apart physically makes it feel less painful and lonely.
This is actually the only year wherein I didn't made big plans or any resolutions except for perhaps to get back in shape. I signed up for more 808 studio dance classes and I hope I can make the most out of it this year. It feels good to take that 1 hour off to just dance like no one's watching. Whether I look like a graceful dancer or a headless chicken, it doesn't matter for as long as I'm having fun and am burning all those unwanted calories away.
So here's to you, here's to us and here's to 2021. May you bring more smiles, more laughter and more love to everyone this year.
Happy New Year!
