Every year I share some wisdom on my birthday and this year 2020 has been quite something. Let me be honest, the countdown into the New Year was far from pleasant and the emotions I felt at the time were unbearable. Little did I know that the those energies would hit the world harder than we could’ve imagined.
So I left Italy two days before the entire country went on lockdown, only for Ireland to go on lockdown a week later. What was meant to last two weeks turned to months and miraculously remained oblivious calling offices, applying for jobs, doing online courses and homeschooling my little miss. I refused to acknowledge the pandemic even though it was in my face everyday. As much as giving up was “acceptable” given the circumstances, it never was an option for me and things started falling into place eventually. The strength it took to stay sane was and still is beyond my comprehension, but I am glad all the work I put in is paying off.
This wouldn’t have been possible without the love and support of my sisters, bae and friends.
