  • What experiences were challenging?
  • What experiences brought me joy?
  • What made me laugh?
  • What have I embraced?
  • What have I pushed away?

What was this year (2021) REALLY about?

On the surface, it may seem that the year was about confusion, pandemic, vaccination, working from home, having some resemblance of frail social life and various activities. Maybe you were sad, happy, joyful, liberated, anxious, depressed, hopeful, hopeless, or all of the above at once.

  • On the surface, it may seem that it was about hard work (because that’s what you did most of the time), but when you think a bit deeper, you may realize that it was about breaking through the obstacles.
  • On the surface, it may seem that it was about struggling and loneliness, but when you think deeper, it was about finding a sense of self
  • On the surface, it may seem that it was about loss and pain, but when you think deeper, it was about personal transformation.
