2020 — the year of extraordinary challenges, and unexpected chaos.
The year of unprecedented crisis and unimaginable loss.
The year that made the whole world stand still.
The year that made us reflect, reset, and refill.
This year has been exceptionally tough for many in ways more than we can ever imagine. The general mood across the globe has been gloomy and stressful.
But this year also has been the year of faith and hope.
Hope for humanity.
Hope for a better tomorrow.
Hope for happier days.
Hope for normalcy to be restored.
Hope is a magical word. Hope brings perspective and strength. It helps us sustain during the hard times and brings fulfillment to the good times. It acts as a light during the darker times. It is like a powerful antidote to fear and despair.
As the year comes to an end, let’s hope for a brighter 2021! Regardless of all the challenges and chaos, let’s hope the new year brings in new opportunities and new energy in our lives.
May the world heal and peace prevail. May the ones who have suffered get the strength to cope up with their pain. May we all find our share of happiness.
May hope prevail.
I know a new year is just a change in the calendar date, but if you ask me, it still fills me with hope and positivity. I look forward to newer beginnings. And every year I get reminded of this beautiful quote by Meister Eckhart –
“And suddenly you just know it’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.”
On that note, wish you all a happy 2021! Cheers to the magic of hope and new beginnings.
Like every year, this year-end too, I will be gifting myself some silence. Party hard or embrace silence, do whatever you love to do, and bring in the new year with a new hope.
