It’s finally your last day. And I remember welcoming you with these words, “We are ready for you!”
Little did I know that I would have to carry the same words althroughout the year. I stood by it, through it all.
I am actually here to thank you.
You see, the year started with challenges. Coparenting is for the tough ones, believing that no matter what world you believe in, the best interest of the child should still be your top priority. I fought hard, real hard, putting my heart and soul into it. I didn’t know what’s going to happen. I just continued fighting for what is right and believed is right.
I have learned to stand up for myself, for my girls. I have gone a long way. What used to be my weaknesses, what used to bother me, became the things that strengthened me. I have learned to look beyond people’s actions and their circumstances. I can’t change the way they act. I can only change the way I respond to them.
I never stopped traveling or exploring even when the global pandemic happened. I don’t want to stop living my life. The girls and I are going to places, local or not. We are going to live our life.
Being in the business gave me an opportunity to meet a ton of different kinds of folks. Meeting people make me happy. I have always been a welcoming person but I have also learned who I allow into my life. Dang it, I have learned that people can appear to care about you but actually not. I have learned to play the game but only playing it with goodness in my heart. I fell but get back up. There are always greater things ahead instore for me, for all of us.
I will never forget you, 2020. You are just an eventful year! Because of you, I am who I am now. I didn’t give up. You have made me stronger. You have allowed people to leave in my life but also replaced them with great ones, better even. Thank you because I can look forward to 2021 with such vigor in my heart that I will overcome her too!
For the last time, thank you and goodbye, 2020!
