RE: An Open Letter To 2021

open letter 2021

Dear 2021,

I understand that this is your first month on the job and I can imagine you’d have a lot of catching up to do. After everything that happened during the time your predecessor was in charge, here are a few notes:

First, I’d like to apologize for the previous years I’ve taken for granted, I was young and naïve, and to be honest, didn’t realize how much work handling an entire year must be. Time passes by so fast and sometimes we don’t even realize the good things that happen to us, until we’re faced with an uphill battle. Unfortunately, we can’t always predict the intensity of the conflicts or the steepness of the mountains we face.

On the other hand, sometimes we get lucky and catch a smooth breeze on which we get to cruise on carefree.

This past year was the perfect example of an unpredictable challenge; we never expected to go through such a rough time, for as long as it’s been going on. We went from losing important people in our lives, being isolated from any personal contact with the rest of the world, to completely shifting our daily lives; that now consist of endless zoom calls, pyjamas becoming the new office/school attire, going through the entire Netflix catalogue and being terrified to go buy milk at the grocery store.

Although, it hasn’t been all that bad either, we’ve learned a lot about ourselves picked up new hobbies and some of us even started yoga.

Now, I understand what happened previously isn’t necessarily your fault and unfortunately you are the one who has to pick up the pieces from anterior slipups. I’m definitely not blaming you for the hardships we’ve live in the past 12 months, all I’m suggesting is if we could catch a break for a little while, at least to keep us up and going. I understand, we humans, can be pretty stubborn at times and even need a little kick in the back once in a while.

When we truly come together for good, we can really accomplish astonishing feats. 

I conclude that you’re the true professional in this department, and you’ll be the judge if we’ve completed our lesson or not. I’m also certain that we’ll continue to work on ourselves and our bonds to one another, even from distance. We’ve stuck together all this time and we were able to provide good to this word despite the circumstances we’ve lived in.

Honestly, I’m really looking forward to this year and all the amazing memories we can create together. I’m here to help in any way, shape or form, simply send me a sign and I’ll answer as quickly as possible. Let’s work together to make this the best year ever, and why not give 2022 a little challenge to try and beat you.

Sincerely yours,

STNNTY Conductor.

Trust me life is great, 2020 has been a long year and we finally finished it, something that seemed impossible only a few months ago. Here’s to a new year, a new opportunity to become the better version we’ve always talked about. We shouldn’t take any moment for granted, instead, we should appreciate the next bonfire we’ll make or savour the first official cookout we’ll have after all this is over. We’ve seen how quickly “sh*t can hit the fan”, so we shouldn’t focus too much on the small details that don’t add value to our lives. Take the slow route and enjoy the scenery out the window, you might just see something worth exploring.
