With this interesting year almost over, I wonder what the new year will bring. More uncertainty for sure, but also opportunities to grow. It’s not easy being positive in the face of the pandemic and constant change. Some days, it feels just simpler to give in, to not wake up, to drink too much, overeat, sleep late, binge watch. It has its charms, but day after day it gets old.
As I replace it with new ventures, marketing, ideas, partnerships, I see forks in the road previously hidden. As I push myself in my workouts, surround myself with people who believe in me, push me to be a better version of myself, ask me difficult questions, I know that each year is the same just with different facts.
I can believe the story of “woe is me” pandemic 2020, or I can just see it as for what it is, another hiccup in another year and move on to 2021. I can dwell on what didn’t materialize, what didn’t grow, what failed, what prevented me from success or I can use as seeds to keep growing, to keep learning, to keep being in service, to own my destiny and barrel into 2021 with the full force of me.
Happy Monday. What will you do different in 2021?
