This picture was taken in March by right before the world turned upside down …and now here we are in the final month of 2020 and it only took 20 years to get here.
I was in an entirely different place mentally, emotionally, (financially 🥴) in this photo and I was full of hope for the things I was getting ready to embark on …and then everything changed and I changed. Didn’t we all?
I was sitting down thinking of the goals that I wanted to reach before the end of the year, finding it ever so hard to realistically plan, but trying to finish this month off with a little bit of hope …any I can muster to start the new year strong.
This year, I went through many stages trying to make the absolute best of a bad time and trying to use the time at home as best I could. It would’ve have been ideal to come away from this time with something new, feeling accomplished with the time I had to make a difference. Instead, the time became so emotionally and mentally heavy that it almost felt paralyzing at time. But I refuse for 2020 to be bust and I want to use this final month of the year to work on things that will yield results.
My focus for this month is consistency, creativity, and faith. Staying consistent, cultivating creativity, growing in faith. It’s the holiday season and it’s such a joyful time that I want to use that energy to grow, succeed, and find hope again.⠀
Has this year changed you in any way? How are you spending the final month of this most trying year? What helps you to hold onto hope?
