Get in Grinches! It's Festive!
I can still remember last year this time. We were all so blissfully oblivious to what's to come. We all heard the rumors about something dark spreading in the east; choosing to ignore it seemed easy during the holidays. December 2019 was undoubtedly a festive time, where we had nothing to fear and everything to gain from this looming year 2020. Weddings, graduations, matric dances, birthday celebrations, and resolutions were all, to our horror, suspended and canceled. It can be so easy for the Grinch in you to take over this holiday season, where you think back on everything you have lost instead of being thankful for what you have now. To be a little apprehensive of the coming year is normal, and clearly, an understatement.
Let us take things one day at a time by following a simple list of actions going into 2021.
1. Be grateful.
2. Regain your balance.
3. Never let anyone steal your joy.
4. Be kind, generous, and hopeful.
5. Live a clean, healthy, and simple life.
6. Love without condition.
7. Celebrate the small wins.
8. Mantra: I am brave; I survived in 2020; I am strong.
9. And, in the words of Jack Kornfield:" No matter how
hard the past is, you can always begin again."
10.YOLO (use with caution, but useful nonetheless)
