THE YEAR THAT WAS 2021

REMAINING SOFT AS YOU CONTINUE TO BE TOUGH IS NEVER EASY..

I thought 2020 was hard. I was wrong. Because 2021 has been painfully difficult. Much like everyone else, I try my best to put up a good front – I smile, I still push to work, I continue with daily life. I continue to fight. Because at the end of the day, I know that there are others who have bigger problems and bigger pain. But tears do still trickle down, my heart still breaks and sometimes I need to pause because it can be too much to handle.

Loss is hard, and I experienced it in so many different ways this past year.

The hardest part is actually pushing through it. Remaining hopeful, remaining kind, and remaining tough at the same time. To always remember that I still have a lot of fight in me. That I still have a good heart, no matter how broken it may be right now. And that I still have so much to look forward to, in all aspects of my life.

So as I say goodbye to 2021, and welcome a new year, I am bringing back the one thing that has always helped me get through things – sharing my passion to create.

The journey isn’t over. I’ve taken a small detour along the way, and it may have broken me down but I am picking up the pieces, as I always do and will be going for that green light, no matter how difficult it may be. Slowly, but surely I know I will be fine.

Special note to the good people around me. Those who took the time and cared enough to listen, those who helped and continue to be a shoulder to lean on, thank you. I am so grateful.
