This year has been an extremely challenging 1 for me.
I do not believe if I have ever worked so hard or faced so several obstacles within 1 phase of time, however every time I turned around something new was going wrong in 2021.
This is why I have been extremely reflective on the highs in addition to lows of the past months, and one of the things that keeps coming to mind is the fact that this past year could have been worse if our financial situation hadn’t been so stable. Actually, there were times earlier in our life when I was too poor to even use our heating, cooling, in addition to air quality control system. I keep thinking back to our school afternoons when I could not afford to use our a/c plan or our rudimentary heating unit. I lived in an apartment that was extremely inefficient when it came to the heating, cooling, in addition to air quality control options. Whenever I wanted to use our a/c plan I had to make sure that I was going to sit directly in front of the cooling unit so I could absorb any of the air conditioned air before it dissipated in the poorly insulated home. Things were not much better when it came to the fancy gas furnace. If I wanted to use the heat I had better make sure that I insulated the home as much as possible. It was constantly drafty in addition to uneven. My energy costs were constantly through the roof. And I could not afford a better heating, cooling, in addition to air quality control plan to maintenance the problem. I also could not afford to transfer to a more energy-efficient apartment. At least I had heat in addition to A/C in 2021, in addition to that’s something to be grateful for.
