From 2020 to 2021

How come it is almost a year of work from home and virtual schooling? Several things have happened in my life and around the world. There have been so many disappointments and losses, but also gratitude and blessings. After many unfavorable situations, we maintain our focus and keep ourselves on track.

My son’s early school enrollment was a success. We managed to carry out our plan for his education effectively. We also succeeded in finding our first home and were approved for a mortgage. Moreover, my career survived the covid-19 turbulences, and all that is needed now is hard work. However, these days, we are living one day at a time.

To me, I prefer to plan everything out. Nonetheless, I’ve realized that plans are only a means to maintain my perspective. Things will inevitably change; surprises will arise, but at least we will move forward closer to our goals.

It feels more like a blessing this year than usual. Finally, my husband got a project. If you have lost something, you appreciate it more. I am doing all I can to keep everything on schedule. Weekly drives to Serpong to give the house a check, discussing, arguing, and reporting with my husband, shopping, paying, arranging, and detailing.

And now here we are, trying to maintain the progress. We have never been more grateful than today. We have never been more spiritual than today. We never felt closer to God than now.

Therefore, 2020 happened for a reason. The reasons will mean different things to different people or families. Whatever the situation, we just hung on and remained patient. We try to see all the positives in everything and learn from the difficulties we faced. How do you feel about 2020? Where do you think you’ll be in 2021?
