Celebrate endings – for they precede new beginnings. – Jonathan Huie
A few more days… and it’s going to be the start of the New Year! I don’t know about you, but I’m so ready to say goodbye to 2020. For most of us, it wasn’t really a great year. But, despite the pandemic, I am still grateful to survive and thrive through all these challenges.
- Self-Care: I’ve learned ways to pamper myself without leaving the comforts of my own home. I also tried a new skincare routine and shared with you the 5 steps that helped me get rid of those pesky blemishes.
- Style: We haven’t been traveling much, so my hubby and I started doing fashion photoshoots at home. I posted a few pictures on Instagram, and I never thought it would be the beginning of an awesome collaboration with my fave brands. This year, I’ve re-discovered my love for style and started writing about fashion trends and outfit ideas.
- The Sweet Life: Life may not be that sweet because COVID-19 turned our world upside down. We had to change a lot of our plans and adjust to the “new normal.” My hubby and I managed to celebrate the special moments in our life and be grateful for all the little blessings.
- I’ve only written two travel posts this year. Last February, I wrote about some of the must-see places in the USA. I was planning to write more about our adventures, but the pandemic happened. When the lockdown was lifted in New York, I was so glad to finally join my friends on a road trip to Manchester, Vermont.
The philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche was right when he said, “That which does not kill us, makes us stronger.” It’s been a tough year for all of us. Against all odds, we mustered the courage to keep going. To change, evolve, and reinvent ourselves. To let go of the things that we can’t control and find new ways of doing things.
Let’s celebrate the end of 2020 and open our hearts to new beginnings. I remain hopeful for a brighter tomorrow for all of us. Stay strong and Stay safe.
Cheers to the New Year!!!
