2020 is a year for the history books. Don't you agree? So many things. Just so many things. People getting sick. People losing their jobs. Kids not getting their meals because they aren't going to school. Older people home alone and lonely. The list could go on and on.
The anticipation of 2021 was palatable. We could taste it. We could feel it. We anticipated it. We NEEDED it. Cause we are so tired of the storm. Am I right?
I have received so many ‘Happy New Year' emails this year. The main theme through all of them is hope. Hope that we can travel. Hope that the vaccine works. Hope that we can see our loved ones. Hope that we can hug everyone (well, hugging everyone might only be me).
For me, the new year always ushers in the feeling of renewal. Almost like a rebirth. Do you feel that way too?
Which can then lead to self examination. Which leads to goal setting. Diets. Exercise. Work. Family. Friends.
Or even choosing a word for the year and scrapbooking/journaling about that word. Which can then lead to internal change within yourself. (I tried that last year and just got too busy to keep up).
Someone I know has decided that her 2021 mantra is ‘Don’t. Be. Lazy.’ Now this is my fave and I might have to adopt it cause I love it so much.
Don't. Be. Lazy.
In my meal planning and prep. This will stop the snacking and I can then hopefully eat healthy on a regular basis.
In my exercise routine. Go the extra mile (or 20 steps).
In my self care. Use that body cream. Dab on the eye gook. Take before and after pics cause the creams are just that good.
In establishing my morning routines. Get up earlier so that I have time to spend time with God, do my self care, make the bed and fold the blankets from the night before.
In doing the dinner dishes. Wash, dry and put away. Get the coffee and tea ready…don’t forget the collagen.
In eliminating all the toxins from my home. I started with Branch Basics…now it's time to finish.
In mailing cards. I made them…so let's mail them!
Look for the rainbows.
Yes, 2020 was a rough year, but looking back – there was so much sunshine in the midst of the rain. So many rainbows during the storm of 2020.
So many things became clearer. Priorities shifted. People came together to help each other. We made masks. We delivered meals. We reached out via emails, texts and cards (my personal jam as you may know). We donated money, clothes and food to those who were in need.
Where do you fit in with all of this? Are you a resolution maker? A resolution breaker? Is your 2021 agenda all new, shiny and ready for some awesome insights. Are your lists ready? Or, do you just fly by the seat of your pants?
However you choose to usher in this new year, I would like to encourage you to look for the rainbows. They are always there…you just might need to find them.
