December 2020, let’s be grateful and kind!


Just like that, we are in December, the last month of the year 2020.  This year surprised us and shattered so many dreams.  Most importantly, 2020 is the year that has made some of us stronger, more resilient, and more hopeful than ever.

Usually, December is the time that I evaluate the year and see what I will leave behind and what I will take to the next year, 2021. It took me a lot of resiliency and resourcefulness to make this year bearable.  No matter what, I will not blame the craziness of 2020 for not reaching all my goals. All I can do is filter out what’s not working and move on.

I am determined to get the most out of this month and the only way I can achieve that goal is to adopt an attitude of gratitude.  I don’t want to do that alone, and this quote explains why:  “If you want to go fast, go alone, if you want to go far, go together”.

Every day of this month, I will make sure to express my gratitude for something or someone.  I will be kind and spread the cheer and love.  Remember a small act of kindness can have a big impact.

Are you ready to take the gratitude and kindness roads with me this month?  By helping others and finding gratitude in the smallest things, we can end the year on a positive note and leave all the turmoil behind.

Happy month of December!


  1. Despite my work closing for 4 and a half months this year, I was definitely one of the lucky ones this year! I lived in a country and state where we took COVID very seriously and had strict laws in place so that we were able to lower cases quickly, and no one that I knew got it – although there was a lot of close calls. There were a lot of lonely times during lockdown, but we made it through to the other side, and now December is looking to be the happiest and best month of all of 2020, and I can’t wait to see what it has in store! 😊

  2. Yes 2020 was a challenge, and not the year we were all hoping for. But in challenge we find strength and resilience. We need to come together as a virtual community and spread happiness.

  3. I agree with you. It is indeed important to adopt the attitude of gratitude. I attended the World Gratitude Summit early this year and it was lifechanging. Just like you,I also want to make sure to express my gratitude as much as I can. I try to be more kind and grateful rather than feeling entitled.

  4. This is such a great message for December 2020. This year hasn’t been easy on most of us and one lesson we all learned this year is to be kind and count on our blessings.

  5. Totally on board! Inspite of everything this year a lot of good has come too. We discovered we could afford me becoming a SAHM, I started my blog that I love doing and we adopted our second child! So much to be grateful for and paying it forward as often as I can!

  6. I simply love the thought and completely agree with you. This year has been quite a tough one for almost everyone. Spreading love and being grateful at the end of the year is great for lifting up spirits.

  7. Grateful and kind. Yes, these are two words that have been guiding me before and have since been very strongly practiced since the pandemic started. Thankful that things are looking up now.

  8. You’re right, 2020 has really taught us a lot about ourselves, hasn’t it. This year has been challenging in so many ways, but it has also shown us just how resilient we are. I have discovered new skills (and hobbies), strengthened some relationships and (arguably the most important lesson) I learned the value of slowing down and enjoying life. I was definitely a poster child for ‘workaholic’ before all of this happened lol!

  9. stronger, more resilient, and more hopeful than ever. These words resonate with me as I look back at the year that 2020 was. It started with such strong projects and events but then pandemic hit and everything stalled. But I see how most are rallying to take the situation head on

  10. yes ,,,this month of december is the time for gratitude and re think all the happenings bad or good.from all disasters that happens around the globe, we able to survive and most likely we are able to make through 2021.and not only that,,having to wake up every morning is the most important thing meaning that some one has gave you a chance to start a new day

  11. yeah!! though this 2020 was the worst to me as need to stay home & unable to travel out as I usually do, however I am still grateful that I keep my job, work from home & stay home stay safe with my family members. cheers, siennylovesdrawing

  12. If you want to go fast go alone, if you want to go far go together is a lovely quote. I’ve not heard it before but I think it’s one that I’ll remember. Gratitude is something we should all practise as there is so much to be thankful for.

  13. Yes, we sure do. While many say this when a new year comes, I think this year it will mean more than ever, which is New Year, New You! And it goes with kindness!
