Oh my goodness.
The surreal, the heartache, the sadness, the weirdness… the EVERYTHING that is 2020 will soon be behind us.
Or will it??
I’ve been trying hard to succinctly capture the essence of it all… and what I keep coming back to is asking this:
What is the HIDDEN GIFT we are to come away with from it all?
Some days, I feel angry that so much of this year was lost for so many good people.
Today, I’m trying to believe this more-compelling-each-day optimistic feeling:
There is a 2020 silver lining for us each to discover for ourselves!
One bold thing I know for sure:
I do not want to squander this gift I see:
The (forced?) Opportunity to CHANGE.
Have you discovered YOUR HIDDEN GIFT of 2020?
Before you jump into feeling you need to BE any certain way in 2021 – or need to DO any particular thing in 2021 – I hope you’ll sit right here for a minute… and think about:
WHAT IS THE GREAT GIFT OF 2020 THAT YOU DO NOT WANT TO SQUANDER?
If you’d like, share yours in the comments below…
You’ll inspire in ways you may never know when you do.
Thank You for being here… and for reading and sharing… I so appreciate you!
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AND YOURS.
Till next time,
KEEP BECOMING TOTALLY YOU
And I will, too.

The gift that this crazy year has brought me is the opportunity to slow down and focus on family! I would have never taken the year off from work and become a ‘stay-at-home-mom’ had the world not turned upside down. This opportunity to shift my focus became the best decision I’ve made in a long time! I feel so fortunate to be in this position, as I know this year has been so tough to juggle for working parents! I’m also cringing at the thought of all the missed memories and moments we could have had in 2020, but we’re making the best of it!
LOVE this. Definitely did not love this whole year, tho as you are sharing, such a great reminder to stay present through whatever is. Hopefully 2020 prepared us to be ready for whatever 2021 brings! Love you darling daughter and thanks for being such a bright light, even thru the darkest moments this year brought❤️ Truly inspiration personified.❤️
