It’s that time of the year when people count their wins and losses. By the number of cars they bought, houses they built, wealth amassed, job offers, scholarships, promotions, and so many construct of achievement, they revel in the joy and bliss that came with the year.
As they celebrate their wins, you also look down on yourself in misery, how you lost your job due to the pandemic, how your business went down, how you were almost thrown out of the house, how your loved ones died, how you could not boast of any substantial achievement this year.
But much more than this, the greatest achievement anybody can grandstand on is the very breath in their nostrils. The year 2020 came with its torrent of bliss and woes which favored some and also affected others negatively. Even if you are favored, the mere thoughts of the negativities in 2020 will put you in psychological distress.
Nothing could typify the year 2020 other than the Yoruba word Kashamadupe. Stop the comparison, remember those that went to the world beyond, appreciate life, and see the good side. It’s not your fault all that happened, it was fated to be. Look on the bright side of life, focus on your maker, and hope for a better year ahead.
Remember, you might not have gotten all you planned for this year, but be thankful for what you have. Welcome to December
