Every year I find myself reflecting most around the time of my birthday. I have officially entered chapter 25 and I’m excited for what this year will bring. This global pandemic has really put life into perspective for me. I always strive to be grateful and acknowledge my blessings, but now more than ever I understand life’s fragility and it is something I vow not to ever take for granted. I am entering this chapter with an open mind and some important lessons I learned in chapter 24 and will continue to apply.
10 takeaways from this past year:
- Let go of grudges.
- Forgive in order to have mental peace.
- Take breaks when needed.
- Prioritize your family.
- Celebrate wins, even the small ones.
- Never stop learning.
- Growth and comfort cannot coexist.
- Setbacks are a part of all journeys.
- Choose faith over fear.
- Trust the process.
