7 valuable lessons I learned in 2020

2020, The Overwhelming Unforgettable Year!
By Krystèl Yaacoub, on 31/12/2020

When I look back at 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic, the severe economic crisis, and the heartbreaking Beirut blast, I recognize that besides the sadness, heartbreaks, and disappointments I went through, I learned a lot of valuable lessons that no one could have taught me except 2020!

I’ve learned to never take basic things for granted; a family, a job, a healthy body, a breathing lung, a beating heart… These are God’s most beautiful graces!

I’ve learned that blessings are waking up in the morning with a roof over my head knowing that my beloved ones are all fine!

I’ve learned that I don’t always have the chance to say goodbye; in a blink of an eye, people leave. Some of them leave to a place of eternal sunshine and some others simply take a different path. And I may never know when the last time I see them is!

I’ve learned that being alone is not loneliness and that self-care is one of the best gifts I can offer myself! By staying home for months due to lockdowns, I caught up with my hobbies: playing guitar, blogging, writing, discovering new wines, etc. These hobbies, in addition to my breathing exercise routine and praying, helped me beat the mental and emotional breakdowns I encountered during these tough times!

I’ve learned to honor my feelings and to accept my not-okayness. It’s okay not to be okay and to feel tired, sad, anxious, or upset at times. I’m not a robot programmed to be happy 24/7!

I’ve learned that true friends are united by soul and not by body. 2020, with its virtual aspect, has deepened our friendship and made us closer than ever before!

Last but not least, I’ve learned that forever is an illusion and that love is a moment. What matters are the beautiful moments I share with my partner in the present, regardless of what tomorrow may bring!

Now, I’m moving into 2021 with gratitude for the lessons I learned, the maturity I acquired, and the strength I gained. With gratitude for the dark that helped me appreciate the light and for the beautiful people who fought with me through last year’s challenges and with whom I’m ready for a new journey!

Hello 2021! ✨
