Random | Home Alone! Christmas in the New Normal

It's the most wonderful time of the year 🎶🎵🎶

Yes, despite the ongoing pandemic and the many struggles that 2020 has brought to us all, Christmas still remains the most wonderful time of the year. Our current situation (pandemic) may have changed how we usually celebrate Christmas, it may have forced some of us to celebrate it away from our loved ones but Christmas is not about us. It's about the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ so let's still celebrate and be happy. Merry Christmas everyone! 💗🤶🎄

Each of us may have different struggles, struggles that others may not consider as one. But each of us is unique, we are individuals. We do have different levels of tolerance to certain issues. What may have been difficult for me would be easy for some, and vice versa. For me, this year is one of the most difficult one especially in terms of career. For the first time in my life, I was laid off. I lost my job. I haven't been laid off before so it was such a big blow for me, mentally and emotionally. Also, for the first time (except when I was living with my aunt) I am now celebrating Christmas alone, away from my family. We don't celebrate Christmas the way other families do but for the longest time, we are always together (at least, with my parents and sibling in Batangas) on Christmas. This year was not. I'm here in the Metro, in a building where people don't know each other, where I don't know anyone. There are some other struggles I don't know that others are experiencing. This is our situation now. We just have to deal with it. We just have to accept it and move along with it.

Despite all these, Christmas is still a season to be merry and gay! And this Christmas, I am! I'm still happy and grateful. I lost my job but found a new one. My family and my loved ones are safe and we all are healthy. We are struggling financially but we're coping. We still have food on our table, we still can eat 3x a day. So thank you Lord! Thank you for the new job and for sending people who believe in me. Thank you for keeping my loved ones safe and healthy, especially during this pandemic. Thank you for always being there for me, for protecting me, even from myself. Thank you Lord for all the blessings and even the hardships, for they make me (us) stronger. Thank you for everything. Thank you for letting us survive and get through this 2020! With all these things to be thankful for, yes, I am happy and gay!

In a few days, another year would come, a new beginning. May the new year brings all of us all the blessings that we are praying for. May we all be safe and healthy. May we find peace in everything. To everyone, let's not focus on the difficulties of life, on the negativities around us. Let us all look forward to the new year with a positive outlook, with gratefulness, with hope. And let us all be kind to one another. Let's help shape a better world for everyone. Let's share and help each other, even in the smallest way we can. Let us all be each other's hope!
