Dear 2020,

Page 366 of 366. Are you ready to close this book?

Like petals of a flower, life shall spring at the benign touch of nature but wither away at the slightest of a surly gust. Nature is Fragile. Life is Fragile.
To have been Alive in 2020 is quite special.

What a precious privilege is it to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.

Marcus Aurelius

Dear 2020,

So, here comes the time to bid you a goodbye. But prior to that, come let’s walk down the 365-day journey and evince how has it been!

Well, Before you leave 2020, permit us to manifest the ruinous remains of human bodies you left in the infirmaries who have surrendered to the futile efforts of helpless medical men. Also, let us tell you how miserable you made us feel, let us ascertain the no. of hearts which broke during your rule. We need to describe the ache which roots out of the separation and severance from our beloveds you took away.

Remember, Remember

This is now,

And now,

Live it, feel it, cling to it.

I want to become acutely aware of all I have taken forgranted.

Sylvia Plath

Oh, before you leave, 2020 we need to take you to the starving citizens of our countries who lost their living amid your reign. We need to inform you about the statistics of suicides and murders committed in the name of depression and anxiety.

Also Dear 2020, don’t you leave before comprehending the economic condition you left us in, the essential human touch you snatched from us, the negligence to converse with people, the ashes of storms, and the disasters you left.

But Dear 2020, don’t you leave yet cause there is more to be apprised.
You see, you took away a lot substantially, but you left all the more on the abstract grounds.

And then it happens… One day you wake up and you are in this place where everything feels right. Your heart is calm. Your soul is lit. Your thoughts are positive. Your vision is clear. You’re at peace, at peace with where you have been, at peace with what you have been through and at peace with where you are headed.


So here’s to you!
Thank you 2020, to strengthen us, both immunologically and emotionally, to educate us about ourselves, to preach that the creator is always more powerful than the creation, to demonstrate the wrath of nature and inhabit the healing process in each living organism.
Thank you, to ring in us hope, optimism, an urge for justice, ambition, patience and love. Thank you to elucidate the importance of the human touch we took foregranted.

Thank you to habitualise prayers and teach how to count our blessings each day, to drive us away from the world and bring us closer to ourselves, to live in the moment, to face failures and plan clashes, to accept change, to switch methodologies, to teach love.

Dear 2020, thank you for being tough!


And now we welcome another year, full of things that have never been

Rainer Maria Rilke

If you and your loved ones made it alive and healthy, take this moment to thank the universe for being kind!
