The past year has been a doozy! But its finally 2021! We’re already a week in but I wanted to take a moment to reflect on 2020 one last time and prepare for what 2021 has to offer.
Last year brought some trying times for all of us. There was a lot of loss, pain, and fear of the unknown. COVID-19 tested us all in a major way and my prayers go out to everyone who was sick, lost loved ones, or lost employment because of it.
Racial and social injustices were once again center stage last year. We watched a man die in the palm of our hands and it’s something that I will never forget. It was a tragedy that opened the eyes of so many people that had ignored the inequality in our country for so long. Rest In Peace George Floyd, Ahmad Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and countless others that have lost their lives due to racism, police brutality, and senseless negligence. I pray for real change in our world.
I learned so much about myself in 2020. I started the year with a goal taking better care of myself both mentally and emotionally and keeping negativity at bay. As tough as 2020 was, I think I did a pretty good job of accomplishing that goal! So for this year, this will remain one of my goals because my happiness depends on it. In 2021, I’m living intentionally. I’m determining my purpose, my dreams, establishing my goals, and living accordingly. Living in alignment with my purpose! With God’s grace, I’ll do it beautifully.
Here’s to 2021 and all it has to offer. May it be a wonderful year…because we made it that way.
