2020 was a mind-blowing year in many ways. A global pandemic, an uncertain election, and so much change, blessings, and lessons learned. Here are a few of those inspiring blessings and sometimes hard lessons I had during this unforgettable year.
I learned this year that change can be easy if you’re willing to do the challenging work to learn a new skill. It certainly takes a lot of patience and time to learn how to run a traditionally face-to-face business virtually. I’m so glad I didn’t admit defeat.
I’m forever grateful I was still able to work through the pandemic and have a business. So many others were less fortunate.
Earlier this year I had a rare accident, a rose thorn pricked my finger causing an infection. I had to go through my first surgery, learn to trust the physical therapy process, and learn to use my finger again after surgery. 🌹
Knowing I could get healthy during a shutdown and lose a substantial amount of weight without needing my gym membership was a blessing and a lesson. I was able to take time for myself and do what was necessary for self-care.
A blessing that came from a slower paced schedule was that I was able to meet my parents for daily walks with the dogs. 🐕
Another huge inspiring blessing this year was finding love. My life is forever blessed and changed. ❤️ We had a mutual friend highly suggest that we meet. I met Rob in late August, and it couldn’t have been better timing. While it’s only been a few months together now, life feels so complete with him in it.
Lastly, my family had a huge scare. My brother underwent an open-heart surgery and double bypass. In that moment we had complete reliance on God, that my brother would recover and thank God, he did.
All these things happened during a worldwide pandemic. A year I will never forget.
This year made me reaffirm my belief that all things are possible with God, timing is everything, and you may not get what you expect — it just might be better.
I am hopeful and optimistic for this next year, and all the new blessings and lessons it will afford us. I hope your new year is filled with many new blessings and positive lessons as well.
