Hoping for the best

2020 was a scary roller coaster ride, to say the least. It was termed “twenty-plenty” and somewhere along the lines- from March 23rd to be exact- things really became too much to bear.

Our thirst for a new start was duly quenched when we had to hide behind closed doors and eat the biggest humble pie ever-courtesy of Covid19. We were all caught by surprise and all we could do was grumble on social media- which was a shoulder to cry on while we were trying to make sense of the sudden halt to our day-to-day routines.

I guess Mother Nature set her foot down and we were all grounded for our collective “misbehaviour” as human beings. Our vulnerability was clearly exposed. Financial losses, closure of industries and severe anxiety took centre stage. The best lesson we’ve learned is to slow down and remember that we are not in control after all. Our egos took a painful knock and the bruises have to heal somehow. Lives were lost and the numbers, unfortunately, continue to rise in 2021.

We are told that our hopes now rest in a vaccine that is purported to save us from this horrific reality. We cannot afford to lose our loved ones anymore. Death is a part of life, but not like this. For now, we shall cross our fingers in prayer and hope for the best. This is not the end, it’s just a bumpy start to a very smooth ride ahead.

Stay alive, be grateful for each day that comes, never let go of your dreams and aspirations. Trust that God is on your side during this great shift of consciousness. Happy New Year!!!
