I was asked recently what my favorite part of 2020 was. That question threw me, I hadn’t really thought of my “favorite part.” So I asked you all on social media for your answers to that question, and I got numerous responses like: new relationships, restored relationships, new jobs, getting married, etc. I was overjoyed with the response of positivity as we are looking back on 2020, and it was something I really needed to help see the positive side myself.
What’s my favorite part? Time.
I had a lot of time this year to:
Time is valuable. Time is what I needed to be where I am today– to realize the changes that I needed in my life to be a person I’m proud of. It is what made me realize that my “word” for 2021 needed to be focused on myself, rather than others. Selfish, right? But the past two years my words were intentional and present…. With the focus being on my intentionality in all aspects my life and my bettering my presence in relationships.
This year, I need to BUILD. Build on all the craziness that happened last year that has brought me where I am today. I don’t want to erase any of the heartbreak, pain or anxiety I dealt with, instead I want to build from it into a stronger person.
So that’s my word: build.
I encourage you to find a word that will carry you through the year, because it may help you refocus as the year goes on and resolutions start to fade.
Well if you made it this far, you got through the heavy part–congratulations! Now onto the stuff I’m better at— taking pictures of literally everything in my life! So here’s a photo recap of 2020. Follow along with me on instagram to see all the other craziness I get into 😎
