I went into 2020 with no real resolutions but with a word for the year: Develop.
To develop as a person myself.
To learn something.
To branch out.
Although it was nothing like I had thought or planned, I tried to take advantage of what I could. I had plenty of time to sit and reflect on the past and try to figure out what the future might hold.
What is in this unknown that lies ahead of me, of all of us.
I had felt stuck for some time with where I was in life and was on the verge of going right back to it when our shutdown was ending. It took a little longer than planned but I found a new path and a direction to finally head. A goal to reach. A light at the end of the tunnel.
There is still a road ahead of me to accomplish but this new year will bring so much with it.
The word for 2021: Persevere.
To continue in a course of action, even when difficult times hit and there may be little or no light at the end of that tunnel.
This year won't be easy for many reasons, including coming out of the year we all just made it through, but there will be a grand reward at the end.
I want to persevere through many parts of life that are ahead.
A new job and career journey.
Living on a tight budget.
Trying to give back to the Earth, be more sustainable.
Pushing through each and every workout.
Working to learn something new.
Pressing on to make each year better than the last.
Not knowing what this year could bring, considering the last.
While the road isn't all known. I know I can make it out the other side, we all can. I just hope to be a better person and learn how much I can push myself to grow more and more.
