Finding Some Good from a Bad Year

Did you turn the calendar to 2021 as quickly as you could? For the first time ever, I put my new
2021 calendar into its wall holder at midnight on January 1, 2021. This horrible, painful,
uncertain, challenging, roller coaster year couldn’t end quick enough. It has given me scars that
will last for years. Going forward I will never have enough disinfecting wipes in my closet and I’ll
most likely wear a mask at the airport even once it isn’t required. But as hard as this year was, I
didn’t lose as much as others did and I am grateful.

We can never minimalize what this incredibly difficult year has done to so many people. But
with all the bad, some good things did happen in 2020 because of the pandemic.

  • Health care workers have always been and will always be heroes. We can never thank them enough for what they and their families have gone through in this pandemic.
  • Teachers finally got the praise and recognition they have long deserved. Families discovered that homeschooling is hard, and teachers are heroes.
  • Truck drivers, farmers, grocery store workers stayed on the job to keep our economy going. They are heroes, too.
  • Two COVID-19 vaccines have been approved. Three more vaccines have clinical trials (Phase 3) in-progress or being planned.
  • Millions of us stayed at home without parties, social gatherings, vacations, and time with our extended family and friends to help reduce the spread of the virus. It has been frustrating, depressing and isolating, but it was the biggest selfless act of love ever given from one human being to another. Many discovered that quarantine time ended up being bonus time with their families that they normally didn’t have due to busy lives.
  • Small acts of kindness happened around the world as we stopped and smelled the roses.
Hopefully, we don’t have much longer to go until there is some normalcy to our lives again. We
are all looking forward to that time. I asked coworkers three questions about 2020: what they
have learned from 2020, in what ways have their lives changed for the better and what are they
most looking forward to in 2021. Silver linings do exist and some of them are written below.
Thank you to everyone who participated and bared their soul. You have all been inspiring.
Here’s to a happier and healthier 2021!
