The clock is ticking. 2020 is slowly drawing to a close. When 2020 started, we were all filled with vigor and hope. It was a frenzied world that we lived in is frenzied. It was teeming with activities, so alive. Everything, and everyone seems to be in a rush. Never did we expect that we’d screech to a halt because of an unseen enemy. And just like that, this eventful year is already folding. I can’t believe that 366 zoomed past. For all the challenges and the uncertainties that the year has ushered in, there is still a lot to be thankful for.

But before the year ends, I want to extend my gratitude to everyone that has been part of my blogging journey, not just this year but in the past five years. I am even more grateful because I got acquainted to fellow bloggers. I got to interact with bloggers from all over the world. It was fun getting to know and learning from all of you. I am thankful to everyone who has shown appreciation for my blog. I want you to know that I am eternally grateful for the support that you’ve extended. I hope someday, when things are better, we can all get together and share our stories.

Perhaps because of the quarantine restrictions, 2020 has been my most active blogging year, so far. I tried to post updates as much as I can. I had to find away to ground the deafening silence. I found comfort in blogging and writing. It was my own dose of happy pill, my own therapy. Thankfully, I had a lot of writing lags to catch up with (HAHA); they kept me occupied. I have made quite a huge progress headway despite still having a lot of pending writeups, both book blogs and travel blogs. At least I have something to look forward to in 2021 I guess. LOL.

2020 was not what we all expected it to be. What we can only take are the lessons we have learned through this experience. In 2021, I have but one grand wish. I am fervently wishing, hoping, and praying that everything gets better, that the pandemic slows down, or gets eliminated entirely. I wish that we can all say that we’ve defeated COVID19.

I am also wishing safety, prosperity, happiness, and, more importantly, good health for everyone in 2021. We can all say that 2020 wasn’t our year. 2021, on the other hand, remains to be an uncharted territory. However, hope still springs eternal and it is one of the things we can cling on to. Happy new year everyone! And again, thank you for being part of my 2020 journey.
