Hello everyone, I hope you all are well and keeping safe and protected.
It’s been a long long time since my last blog post which was way back in June this year.
Since the last post, so much has happened. I have been so busy with work and my motivation has been a real test this year in particular but my aim with this is to make this Covid free and trying not to depress you all because I know that’s what you all don’t need so I’ll try and make this the best blog post.
I know I say this many many times but I really appreciate and value your patience so much when it comes to waiting for new blog posts.
Who knew what 2020 was going to bring in store for all of us as people, as a society and as a country altogether…
Seeing the impact of Black Lives Matter really touched and moved me in so many ways and as well as that, it made me feel proud in myself as a person of colour and especially for the voiceless who feel like their platform doesn’t exist in their eyes but it did exist to the whole wide world to listen and create discussion and to educate those who didn’t have the tools or a lack of knowledge to what has been happening so for many decades and centuries for all of us to get to where we are in the present day.
Celebrated two events this year which were my work party event way back in March just before the whole lockdown and social distancing into place. If you read my March blog post, you’ll know all about it. Here’s a link for you all to click on and read.
As well as that, I also celebrated my 30th which was a complete surprise. Props to my sister for arranging it all. I was really taken back and emotional with the amount of love there was for me on that day. Nothing but the love of family. It really was amazing. I was spoiled rotten.
I even went back to my old neighbourhood, had a walk there just to gather my thoughts and see how things have changed since the last time I was there. As the saying goes, home is where the heart is. It was a bit emotional going back and seeing all the changes and also getting the whole atmosphere of it all. It was really so humbling to me just having that visit and knowing what it was like to grow up there from.
Since then, it’s just been going to work and keeping myself productive.
Recently we just celebrated Christmas. To be honest with you, Christmas was so quiet this year. It just wasn’t the same and it makes me sad especially thinking about my family and my Nan who passed last year. It really made me all reflective as of everyone else who enjoys being around the company of family.
As I write this, there was a conversation I had with family members and they have taught me to be appreciative, grateful and thankful in everything despite all of us not having the best year this year in 2020. I take this year as a lesson to be thankful not only for my life but all for my family and colleague’s lives and also for some of us who are working and have their jobs. Another lesson I have learnt this year is the importance of mental health. It’s very important. I find that speaking to close people and taking walks is really helpful and gaining that exercise so it’s ideal to go out and take 10 or 30 minutes out of your day because it can be beneficial for your state and your well being. My heart goes out to every single person who has suffered and being through so much pain, grief and loss in terms of everything in their lives.
We have to come to the end of the blog post and I want to wish you all a happy prosperous 2021. May it be a year of happiness, love, comfort, success, togetherness, peace and blessings upon blessings over your lives, your families lives, your jobs and households.
Happy New Year to every single one of us.
Until the next post…..
