First one, I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas.

I’m not going to sugar coat it, this year sucked. With how many times that I have cried this year, I am pretty sure that I officially own stock in Kleenex Tissues. Despite the crazy and unique year that we all had, it is important to take a pause and think about the growth that we went through this year. Even though this year was challenging, we still made a heck of a lot of growth. I think we can all walk away from 2020 having more knowledge about who we are and a newfound resiliency.

  1. Let’s not be greedy. There is enough toilet paper for everyone 🙂
  2. Even when life is hard, it still goes on.
  3. Wine and cheese do qualify as dinner.
  4. Don’t wait to call someone. Pick up the phone. You never want to regret not making that phone call.
  5. Quarantine birthdays can still be special.
  6. A year can feel both equally short and equally long at the same time. I’m not quite sure how that is possible, but alas 2020!
  7. Even if you are not going anywhere that day, still get ready in the morning.
  8. We are all uniquely talented in our own way. Friends, I watched videos on how to make bread, tutorials on hair braiding, and I saw Small Businesses take off. That is pretty freakin’ cool if you think about it.
  9. Humans are resilient.
  10. Grace, empathy, and understanding goes a long way.
  11. We aren’t all passionate about the same thing, and it’s a good thing that we aren’t. Our passions are what make us unique!
  12. That our jobs can change in an instant. Who would have thought that back in March I would still be teaching from a computer.
  13. Being grateful for the small things, like to-go Margaritas or Office re-runs.
  14. Authenticity wins every time!
  15. Take a leap of faith. There will never be a right time for anything. If you’re thinking about it, just do it.
  16. That putting up your Christmas tree in October is a great way to spark some joy.
  17. It’s okay to slow down and breathe.
  18. Long walks are good for the soul.
  19. Find contentment with what you have. My husband and I both were privileged enough to stay employed during this year. There were a few temporary pay-cuts here and there, but nevertheless . . . we are grateful.
  20. That Psalm 16:8 will forever ring truth: I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

Cheers to a blessed 2021. I am so grateful for you, and I am praying for the year ahead.

With Love,
