#SundayWalks ‘7 things I forgot in 2020’

I forgot to be impatient, because life isn’t a race, it’s a journey to be savoured. 

I forgot to complain when I switched off my morning alarm, because every day is a unique gift to treasure.

I forgot to worry about setbacks, because they show me a lesson I need to learn.

I forgot to feel guilt about my choices because they are a result of my free will, and they have brought me to where I am.  

I forgot to feel fear, because, ‘only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live.’ Dorothy Thompson.

I forgot to feel bored because this world is the most fascinating place in the universe and I am lucky enough to experience living here.

I forgot to feel entitled, because this world owes me nothing I don’t deserve. Instead, I learnt to say thank you for every breath I take, everything I see and feel, and everyone in my life, including you, dear blogging friends and visitors.

And finally, I forgot to worry about everything I had lost over the years and remembered everything I had.  

Tell me, what did you forget in 2020?

    1. Thank you, Robbie! They’re all mine, my daughter’s in Munich, and a friend who lives in Norway, except the sunrise which is from pixabay. There’s lots of snow in Europe atm.


  1. This was cool – except I keep thinking that to forget is something not good – and forget feels a little sloppy
    But I get that you were using it here as how you let go of complaining and all that –
    But the “I forgot” threw me off at first
    Anyhow – I got over that enjoyed your brilliant post with social psychology lessons with words and photos
    And in 2020 * I let go of my fear – cannot say forgot it because I sure didn’t –
    It was there – but I actively managed it and pushed on to get things done!
    Happy new year

    1. Yes, fear is a hard one to get over. I wouldn’t even leave the house for months, but you have to let go, take precautions and get on with life! I feel as if I’ve let go of a lot of negativity in 2020, and amazingly (I never would have believed it in March) I’m feeling more optimistic.
      Thanks for dropping by and commenting:)

      1. Thanks for the reply and each of the things you mentioned you “forgot” in this post were so masterfully written and you have a lot for readers to take away
        And funny how in the early months we just had no idea as to what would come of this all – A lot changed since Mary and April

  2. What a special and brilliant post! Love it! What I forgot and learned? How much we depend on other people for the life we live! Love, love the snow pictures. We never have any.
