Wish you Happy New Year 2021

I wish you all a happy and healthy new year 2021.

Tell me what do you feel about 2020 in the comments.

2020 wasn’t bad for me, it was just different and taught us a lot especially how to leverage technology to connect and get the job done.

I used 2020 to go within myself

I felt a deeper connection with family members in 2020.

I also finished another programming certification in 2020.

I finish Sri sri yoga teachers training program, which helped me get rid of extra weight on the body and stress on the mind.

I did several Art of living meditation programs

I hope 2021 would come with freedom without restriction to wear masks 😉
