Goodbye 2020 & Welcome 2021

Funny how ONE never looks like what THEY have been through …🧐2020 had been an interesting year full of challenges but in all, it was a year of rediscovery.

What a year!! You had beaten me to the point of depression, feeling helpless with grief from all the loss of loved ones (every other month was death or funeral and I pray never to experience again in my life), the loss of jobs/contracts and almost being bankrupt, amongst other interesting discoveries but in all, I have been GRATEFUL for this journey.

Along this 2020 Journey, I came to understand that sometimes Solitude is the key to Rediscovery of One’s Purpose & GRATITUDE stepped in.

The no 1 lesson for 2020 has been that HOPE dwelled in ME and kept me going that despite all: God had ME covered and so to 2020; thanks for the interesting ride but even though I was beaten; I was not bruised and hence excitedly looking forward to 2021 still being GRATEFUL …
