Wow! I can’t believe we are at the end of 2020. This year has taken us to hell and back. When the year started, I remember counting down into the new year with my friends and love and laughter. We just knew 2020 was going to be one of the greatest years of our lives. So many trips were planned, business opportunities lined up, and just experiencing life in general. Hell it was my 30th birthday this year! Instead of all the fun, we ended up quarantined in our homes with unbelievable circumstances. I don’t want to go back and relive 2020, but it sure has taught me a lot about life. Tomorrow isn’t promised, and we have to live every day like it’s our last.
I can go on and on about how bad 2020 was, but what if we flip our perspective and dug a little deeper? In all honesty, I believe 2020 came into all of our lives for a reason. The world has been moving so fast with the newest technology, Instagram, Tic Tok, horrible politics, and more. We forget to take time to cherish our loved ones and, most importantly, ourselves. This year has taught us to take life day by day and love those around us, including YOU. Covid has taken many beautiful souls away from us, and we shouldn’t take this topic lightly. I want to send blessings to all of those who lost someone close to them.
From here on out, 2020 should have taught you one BIG lesson and that is to live life for YOU! Our jobs can be taken away without notice, we can’t see our friends and families for months, and we can lose everything instantly. Learning to live for YOU is a major lesson in all of this. If everything was stripped away, what do you have left?
