I was mindlessly scrolling through my Instagram timeline when I noticed some posts which were both mood boosters and drainers.

I’m sure that if I asked you to describe the year 2020, a few negative adjectives would pop in. It was turbulent, challenging, tempestuous, damn right difficult, tough, and filled with hurts.
