The year 2020 brought us many things. Fear, guilt, a pandemic, oily skin, social distancing, civil unrest, zoom, craft cocktails, and so forth. It also brought us new words such as quarantine pods.
The year 2020 also got us bringing back and feeling old phrases of yore. For example, good riddance. Most people I know literally said “good riddance to 2020”. I know I did. Honestly, however, I can’t remember the last time I used the phrase “good riddance” so freely. Good riddance 2020. And, good riddance to difficult people. Good riddance to haters. Good riddance, to chaos-driven entities.
The year 2020 made it easier in a way to cut the chords and part ways with dysfunction. A pandemic, something much larger than us, had taken over our lives. We needed to address and accommodate that particular chaos. Thus, we needed to make room in our lives and not let certain people or things live rent-free in our minds.
So, good riddance to all that is toxic. Here’s to planting healthier seeds.
