All over the world everyone is cursing this year to be the worst of all. From wildfires to covid-19 and earthquakes, it seems like these dreadful things keep coming at us one after the other. But, that doesn’t mean we should look out the truly good moments that this year has brought us.
- The whole world came together to fight during the disastrous Australian bushfire crisis
Australian bushfire destroyed around 18 million acres of Australian wilderness and caused around $3.5 billion in damages, the Australian people — and the whole world — came together for relief efforts. Thanks to millions in donations, volunteer support — like American firefighters who flew to Australia to help battle the fires — and new greenery now starting to sprout from scorched earth, the continent is slowly but surely put back together.
- COVID-19 stopped the world — but not heroic healthcare workers
The majority of the world may be on lockdown but doctors or health workers have answered the call to continue to test, treat their patients battling COVID-19.
- Free cooking classes from one of the best chefs in the world
World-renowned Italian chef Massimo Bottura began posting cooking tutorials on Instagram in a series he dubbed #KitchenQuarantine. In the videos he offered step-by-step tutorials for classic Italian recipes.
- The Italians sing beautifully from their balconies
Social distancing and quarantining has been challenging for everyone, but Italians found a way to be together while maintaining social distancing too.
But, we all are going to make an effort. This is not meant to minimize the harsh reality of an incredibly difficult year. Many of us have lost loved ones. Many are continuing with struggle. And many feel sad, scared, frustrated and broken.
But out of quarantine comes we all have some bonus time with family or loved ones.
Yes, we all might have gained some weight, but we salvage our old hobbies like baking and gardening, that we not be in touch in our busy days. Also we all have so much time to read again to self educate. From watching TV to indoor fitness, we all recall our childhood days by playing some board games that involve the whole family.
