2020 has arguably been one of the most unpredictable years that anyone could have imagined.
This year, we have experienced an immense amount of loss that could never be replaced. Loss of family members, friends, jobs, final sports seasons, once-in-a-lifetime events, and so much more. These things will likely forever alter lives, and we must recognize that in every aspect as life moves forward. Everything that could have gone wrong most likely did.
However, above all else, the best thing to do is to stay positive.
As draining and exhausting as 2020 has been, we’re almost done, and we’re only getting closer to the end of this chaos. There is a light at the end of this tunnel, no matter how dim it may seem at times. There will come a time when we can safely reunite with our loved ones and can celebrate all of the accomplishments that didn’t get the proper recognition.
COVID-19 will always be an impactful portion of our lives, but it doesn’t get to define our entire lives. There are still many things that can make the rest of this year end on a positive note.
Spend time with those that love and appreciate you, learn a new hobby, watch your favorite movie, get some fresh air, and take care of yourself.
You are loved, you are appreciated, you are needed.
