What I Learned From 2020
We will all remember 2020 as one of “those” times in history. Everyone will have a story to tell from 2020. Some stories will be happy, and some will be sad. For me, 2020 has taught me to remember to stop and reflect. Take a deep breath and live in the moment. Be reminded that there are no certainties in this world. What we thought was up may now be down. What was true may now be false. With the arrival of Rosh Hashana, it is a great time to take inventory of what is truly important in our lives.
COVID-19 has forced us to turn inside in a lot of ways. Inside our work or profession, inside our home and inside our brain. This year has taught me to look inside for peace and tranquility. It is so very hard to be patient in the face of uncertainty. These uncertain times call for us all to turn inside and preserve the sanctity of what’s truly important. For me, it is my family and inner circle that keeps me moving forward.
I hope we can all find something to be grateful for in 2020. Be present, be connected, and most of all, be happy. I wish you all L’shana Tova!
