I want to write about so many things. I had only written about two things in 2021, and many things have happened. I’ve been thinking about how to organize my thoughts, and so far, I can only think about my 2021 as pre-covid and post covid.
Yes, Covid has hit our home. It was in September. And it has only been three months, and it felt like so many things have happened after. Life kind of went back to normal a little bit once most of us were fully vaccinated.
Life in general in the Philippines felt like it had come to normal, especially during the holiday and celebrations season. But tomorrow, NCR is coming back to Level 3. Is it hello face shield again? I don’t even know.
I don’t have a schedule yet to return to the office. Earlier today, I felt that I was almost ready sooner or later. I guess I just really needed that two-week-long break that I have been yearning for months now.
Oh yeah, tomorrow, I am also coming back to work. The hardest part of returning to work from a long vacation is that you’ve gotten attached to the vacation already. 😀 I can do this all year, you know, just bumming around. But there are the bills we need to pay.
I get envious of people who know what they want. They have a clear destination in mind. The downside of having so many options in front of you is that you want to take just so many paths, and sometimes you end up stuck at a crossroad.
Anyway, so many things and people to be thankful for in 2021. Where should I even start?
Traveling in 2021. It was so lovely to finally be able to fly again, travel, and spend quality time with loved ones. And it wouldn’t be that swift sailing if I hadn’t been vaccinated.
I am grateful to the Taguig LGU (and EY for arranging it) for getting the workforce vaccinated and where I got vaccinated.
Thank you to all the frontliners. They are indeed the real heroes of this battle. They have saved many lives, including ours, and have given hope to many families.
Thank you to all the doctors, nurses, medical practitioners, RHU, BHWs who assisted us during and after we got sick.
I am grateful to my relatives for supporting us above and beyond when the whole household needed it. We couldn’t have made it without them.
Thank you to my friends and prayer partners who supported us emotionally and spiritually.
Thank you to my life partner, who has been there all the time.
Thank you, Jesus, for the provisions in all aspects. Thank you for all the blessings.
