2020 was a year like we’ve never seen before. It was year of major challenges for most, yet for some, great successes. It took me a moment or two to decide what to say as we enter 2021, this New Year. So, I’ve chosen to share some of my thoughts and reflections of the first few months of 2020. In January, we welcomed the first year of a New Decade! A year of self-empowerment. A year for us to have the confidence, in who will are and what we are capable of, and to take at least one step closer to our goal, dream and purpose.
In February, we were stepping outside our comfort; realizing that Nothing is Impossible, if we believe in ourselves. We discovered that “It’s always the right time for us to seize the opportunity to learn, grow, and be empowered to make our dreams a reality!” Then by March, we found ourselves in the midst of a worldwide pandemic and our lives would never be the same. From a very practical perspective, we needed to make major adjustments to having everyone in the house all the time. We had to focus on managing our households in our “new normal” by being innovative, creative and with careful planning. We needed to create living spaces that made us feel at ease, yet productive. This meant that we may have had to create new habits, which included a different daily routine and a more flexible schedule.
Here we are ten (10) months later and each day is a new adventure… Recently, I heard a preacher say, “Now don’t leave 2020 empty handed!” He was referring to a story in the Bible, when the children of Israel left Egypt after 400 years of bondage, with all the riches of that country. We can’t afford to go through all that we went through in 2020 and come into 2021 with nothing. We may not have monetary riches, but we definitely have a wealth of knowledge of the strength and resilence that we may not have known that we had… Now that we’ve taken just a few moments to look back, let’s begin to look forward into what the future holds for all of us.
We Welcome the 2nd Year of a New Decade!
