What a year 2020 has been but we’ve all managed to get through it and have proven our inner strength and resilience.
So on this last day of 2020 let’s take a moment to reflect and congratulate ourselves for our initiative, creativity, support for each other and overcoming COVID-19.
A friend of mine, Deb from Deb’s World wrote a post this morning asking the question: What was the best decision you made in 2020? Deb has had a couple of very difficult years and in her post she discussed the decision to ask for help as her best decision for the year. Many of us are afraid to be vulnerable especially if there is a perception that we are a strong person. Reaching out, can feel like we are a failure but that is so far from the truth and I’m so proud that Deb shared her experience as it will certainly help many of us in similar situations.
I’ve also written and shared how I’m feeling with you all and although it is scary to admit you need help it can also be very liberating because you realise you aren’t on your own. In fact, way back in 2018, I wrote ‘V’ is for Vulnerablity – 4 ways showing your vulnerable side will help you Thrive.
A few weeks ago, I wrote a post Reflecting on 2020 and yes, there were some positives.
I needed to overcome the feeling that 2020 was a wasted year because of the restrictions COVID-19 had placed on us all. Some of you are still experiencing the restrictions and so it is even more important to try to focus on some of the positives from the year and plan for 2021.
So as we leave 2020, I ask you to ponder two questions (one of which I’ve taken from Deb):
What was the best decision you made in 2020?
What were some positives you can take from 2020 as we move into a New Year?
It has been difficult and we could be excused for not feeling in the Festive spirit or enthusiastic for a New Year. For me, I am so very grateful for you, my readers, who have supported me and shared your thoughts with me throughout not just 2020 but for almost 5 years now.
Sending love, best wishes and hugs to you all on this New Year’s Eve, especially those of you who are still struggling with lockdown. Let’s all support each other in making 2021 a great year for us all.
I wish you all the very best for 2021 and I look forward to sharing the journey with you as we all strive to be Women Living Well.
