 The year 2020 went by like a blur for me because I was so focused specifically on the idea that I must survive everything that happened to me that year. I don't really want to delve on the nitty-gritty parts of how my life was last year, let's just say I managed to survive and maintain my composure for the whole year last year. 

It took me more than a year to make another blog post, even though I tried to fight my writer's block (that went on for a year, is that even possible?!). As the new year starts, and I still can't think of anything interesting in my life to share to all of you, why don't I just write a letter to my 2020 self? Sounds weird, right? But I'm still going to it anyway, and here it goes....

To my 2020 self,

You started this year with high hopes that you will achieve something this year that you worked hard for last year. You were so enthusiastic, albeit the fact that you've been anxiously waiting for the results of your hard work last year. Alas, you found out that you failed at something that you've always wanted to have. You were heartbroken and the pain somewhat paralyzed you. Thankfully, you were able to bounce back from that failure. You knew deep down that you've never wanted so much more than this title, and you will get it no matter what. The failure that you experienced made you even hungrier for success. You know you owe it your family, to your God, and to your self, and to every one who never gave up on you nor lost their faith in you even if you already gave up and lost faith on yourself. Please know that as you work hard, please work smarter and pray hardest.

In the middle of the year, you were able to move forward. I am so proud of you! You were able to mend yourself quietly. Please remain resilient. Others gave up on their resiliency, but never give up yours. That is because, at some point in your career, someone out there will rely on your resiliency. So learn to be resilient, it will help you to be more competent.

In the latter part of 2020, you were able to regain control of your life. I'm so proud of you! Who would've thought that you'll be drawn to watching k-drama and online shopping, two of the activities that you were not that much interested in few years ago. But, those two activities kept you sane everyday. 

I know that you're trying to achieve something, and I promise that we will own this year! I'll make sure that every tear you shed last year will be worth it in the end. Thank you for hanging in there, it's my turn now to make you proud.
