Gratitude Post

Getting our drive-thru COVID19 test at the Dodger Stadium

What a year it has been! Did it feel like forever, or did it go by quickly? Whatever our perspective, I think we can all agree that it was a trying time for everyone; for some, more than others.

For me, however, it went by pretty fast. I don’t know if maybe because another year has passed and I didn’t accomplish anything? You know that feeling when you’re at work, and the entire 8 hours is dragging; then you look at the time and it’s 5 minutes to clock out, and you’re like, wait, I haven’t done anything yet!

I saw an Instagram post, asking, “What did you spend your time on?” Gosh, I hate that my answer is Netflix and Disney+! Some people bake, some people eat the baked goods. Still, I remind myself to be good to me. Making it through 2020 is enough. ☺️

Discovered hiking, and explored trails in the LA area. Everyone was into outdoor activities when malls and restaurants closed.

On that note, there are actually some pretty cool things that happened to me this year. I finally got my driver’s license, also got a car; and I also moved to East LA to live on my own. This was back in February (pre-lockdown and all), so I had to think twice if it really happened on the same year, haha! It feels like ages ago. Oh, I also got the go signal to take my nursing exam – no need to take additional classes as previously required by the state. Anyway, that’s another story for 2021.

Your 2020 NBA Champions! Got the locker room shirt. πŸ™‚

I’m just thankful that I’m here right now, despite all the things happening in the world. I went through my own battles. I laughed, I cried, and cried some more. But I made it to the next year, and I am alive.

So here’s to the healthcare workers, frontliners, and everyone fighting the good fight. πŸ₯‚ Again, thank you for all that you do. To the teachers who are struggling with Zoom classes, and students coping with distance learning, I salute you. πŸ₯ƒ To those who have lost loved ones to the pandemic, those battling depression, and those going through pain and hardships, please know that you are not alone. πŸ™πŸΌ And to those who are still breathing, who still have food on their table, and who are spending the New Year with their families, may we never take anything for granted again. πŸ–€
