Whoa! What an year 2020 has been for all of us? Now that officially tomorrow is the last day of 2020, it’s time to look back on everything that happened to me this year. I’m wrapping up 2020 on a good note through this post, and this is a review post of the year where I’m going to let you know, how things have gone in my writing as well as in my creative career.
This year has helped me to discover so many of my “powers” I had no idea I was born with! Reflecting on how I discovered my super powers this year is just magical, and it feels like definitely the entire universe conspired to help me find my lost passion and meaning. Every year teaches me something new, but this year has been significantly different…deeper…and a whole lot on other level than past years.

Some cool new beginnings in my work/projects that happened in 2020:
- Joined Redbubble and posted my first doodle design in the month of March.
- Till date I have 51 doodles and nature inspired designs [available on all products] in my Redbubble store
- Until March I was only a blogger, but I added a new career milestone – being a DOODLE ARTIST and have created close to 200 doodles/designs so far.
Covid- 19 Outbreak- Quarantine, Wearing Masks, Social Distancing, New Normal, State Emergency, & Tissue Paper Scarcity.
I still remember those wave of emotions, when the news broke in our state, and we were officially asked to go on a quarantine! Everything felt like it’s the end. But slowly we started adapting to the new normal, were more health and hygiene conscious, started wearing masks dedicatedly, and learned doing everything [like social distancing, etc,.] to keep ourselves, our family, community, and our friends safe. This year gave us so many reasons to appreciate life, and to be grateful for every single thing, we had taken for granted!
We found new ways of working, learning, teaching, connecting, finding peace and balance, connecting to our lost passions [that were buried under responsibilities, and fast-moving lives], and to navigate our days more effectively with hope and belief.

These are the glimpses of my life in 2020. Some “big events” [for me] that shaped my life, and gave me a direction to see myself actually doing my dream of becoming a writer, a coach, an inspiring woman, and a future author. These were some of the milestones that I could achieve in the year 2020. Some big and small life lessons that helped me to see myself as a performer, as a true leader, and as an influencer in positive thinking, creativity, and kindness.
Now that, I had to finally say goodbye to 2020, I’m carrying forward all the important life lessons to my next new me, and I am going to share in my next post. So stay me, guys! I hope you find them inspiring too!
I end this post here looking back on my 2020 achievements in terms of new beginnings, key moments, progress that I could make, and the path leading me forward to new beginnings. Waiting for a fresh start, new beginning, and the new journey in 2021.
