As we start afresh, hoping for a safer and happier 2021, let’s carry forward invaluable lessons from last year: to be consciously grateful for things and not take mother nature for granted. To value relationships and to keep in touch with our loved ones. #HappyNewYear! pic.twitter.com/MJRUaekRfF

2020 has been a pretty terrible year for most of us. For me it was a learning experience & a real eye opener to how much I took freedom for granted. I’ve learnt to appreciate life a lot more. Keep smiling, keep being positive & we can make 2021 a huge upgrade. Happy New Year 🥳 pic.twitter.com/cL0aqEXTBK
