Self-confidence and self-love were never my strong suit. 2020 was a challenging year, to say the least. However, for me, and I assume for others tool, it was a year of growth and self-observance. It was a year that put everything in perspective, showing us the things that are most important in life, and health being one of them. 2020 was a year that taught us to reevaluate our priorities and reminded us of the value of a hug and our loved ones, and how we tend to take them for granted. It was a year that made us want to be a better person and rebuild broken relationships from the past.
2020 was a year that helped me separate between what is truly important in life and the things that didn’t matter as much. All the materialistic things that seemed so important in the past paled in comparison to other things. I need a pair of shoes, but I don’t need a ton of them. The value of materialistic things diminished, and I recognized the significance of mental strength, as it is something that we hold and will stay with us forever. Well, that was 2020, and very soon, we will welcome 2021.
2021 will, hopefully, be an amazing year, and this year. I am taking a chance on myself. I used to play it safe, always, and as I mentioned, I don’t have a lot of faith and love in and for myself all the time. This year, I am going to invest in things that I want to do and take care of myself and the people I love around me. I will complain less and try to enjoy the good in what I have instead of focusing on all the things I lack. I will take better care of myself in all fields, including my health. This year, I am taking a chance on myself and pursuing what makes me happy regardless of what people say, because this is my life and I am the one who has to live it. This year, I am taking a chance on myself and doing what is important to me. This year, I am taking a chance on myself despite all the fears of failures, rumors, and pain, as I leave them all behind in 2020. In 2021, I am taking a chance on myself every single day.
