From 2019 to 2022

I think we all feel like we skipped from 2019 to 2022. It really went by so, so, so fast that it seems like a blur. Yet, I hope we don’t fully forget everything that has happened. Actually, I’m hoping we remember each step. That’s because I believe it’ll make us that much better in the following years. What we experienced in the last few years was tough. But what comes from adversity and tough times are the greatest diamonds. So, let’s not forget. Instead, let’s remember each part and take the good of it all with us into 2022.
