The LaSt DaY of 2020

Alhamdulillah, I never would have thought that I could be here today right here and right now typing this post on my blog. This year has been such a crazy journey. Who would have thought that 2020 is the year that Coivd-19 pandemic hit the world and instantaneously everything was put on hold. If I can sum up my year it would be healing and mindful. I really have to focus my energy on right now, appreciate and be thankful for this moment. One thing I learned was in a blink of an eye your life can changed forever. 

SoMe RaNdOm ThINgs in 2020

- my youngest is entering standard 3 in a few days
- I am still using my Kindle Oasis to read ebooks. I having been using it for three years now
- I finally choose INTENTIONAL  as my one little word for 2021
- I set reading goals to read 20 books and I have achieved this goal this year. I read some amazing books this year
- In March, the whole country was in locked down - school closed, non essential economy closed, school closed - we have to stay at home to stay safe. I have mixed feeling about it: scared, happy, thankful, lonely, hurt, anxious and many more. 
- I meet my soulmate 
- I got engaged
- So many rules and so many revised policy to join Program PAKKP. It was so inconvenient to impose during Covid time.

- my youngest stay at home more than he goes to school
- online school is definitely not ready for primary school student.

One Little Word Journey so far

I have been enjoying participate in One Little Word since 2011, some year I joined the workshop and some year I just choose the world and really try to live my word each year. 

 My One Little Word that I choose in the last nine years were:

This year I choose Mindful as my word, I wanted to blog about this word at least once a month and then pandemic hit , all plans thrown out the window. Some how it is difficult to do anything else when people all over the world are dying. 
I still stay true to my word and try very hard to be mindful. Be grateful for this moment right now. I am alive, happy, healthy and wealthy.

Now as always, in December I already thing about my one little word for 2021. What I want to investigate and make it as a theme for 2021. On top of my head I am thinking about refresh, intentional, grow, beautiful :- these are all of the words I would love to explore.

I am also thinking of joining One Little Word 2021 workshop, hosted by Ali Edwards. She is such a great teacher and inspiring scrapbooker. I love her style and her work

And then suddenly it's December

And suddenly it's December of 2020. What a year! This year has been a weird year. Not just for me, I think for the whole world. Suddenly without warning, pandemic hit us and shut down the world. It is a hard year to describe. Covid-19 is a creature that we cannot see with our eyes and yet it has killed thousands of people all around the world. The world is definitely going through cleansing phase. It has been more then a year, and there is no sign that this pandemic is going away any time soon.

As for me, a lot of my plans have been canceled and I just didn't feel like doing all the goals that I have set in the beginning of the year. It's ok too. We make plan but the best planner in the world is Allah. I still feel like 2020 is the best year yet for me and my family.

Life this week

  • clean up my closet. I need to reboot/refresh my look for 2021
  • show up for my life
  • I want to write more. Where is my Dayone app? I have not been consistent with journaling and I need to do this again
  • apply for my annual leave. 
  • make a plan to visit my parents sometime this month
  • finished listening to "The Guest List" by Lucy Foley on audible. I have two credits in my audible account and I need to find more interesting book to read in 2021
  • I am so thankful that I finished reading more than 20 books in 2020
  • choose my one little world for 2021. I have a few words that I am thinking about right now - refresh- grow- breath - intentional. I haven't made up my mind yet. Some how I have a feeling that next year is going to be different.
  • register for One Little word workshop for 2021. I need to be more intentioanl with my word. Hemm maybe intentional is the right word for 2021
  • how about a photo a day until end of the year
  • focus on healing my body, my mind and my spirit
  • obsessing over Folklore and Evermore by Taylor Swift

Overall I am enjoying the rest of 2020 and I am also looking forward to 2021
