Hello 2021!

Thankfully we’ve persevered and made it to see another year of life.

Last year, there was a lot to take in politically, mentally, and financially. Despite all of the chaos and uncertainty, I think that 2020 taught me a lot about myself and society.

One of the most important things I’ve learned is be more grateful and to have more empathy for others. I learned that I am resilient as well. I also learned to put more of my focus into the positive things even if they’re small. I had a lot of plans for last year that didn’t come to fruition. Instead of harping on the things that didn’t come to fruition, I started taking care of the things I could actually do and never had time for prior to the pandemic like repairing my credit. I also started reading a lot more and even finished a reading challenge I started back in March (check out my Goodreads profile for reading recommendations). I went for walks more often, spent more time with my dog and became more conscious of my eating habits, which I’m working on bettering. I also started to brainstorm on ways that I can elevate myself career-wise. Overall, I feel like I slowed down a lot and became more focused on my self-care. It’s pretty easy to think about all of the things we were not able to do this year, but there is still a lot to be grateful for.

Now that we are embarking on this new year consider the following questions/suggestions that could help you make 2021 one of your best years:

  • What did you accomplish last year? Big or small.
  • Celebrate your wins, big or small.
  • What do you hope to accomplish this year? Consider setting a goal for something that takes you out of your comfort zone.
  • Did you pick up on any new hobbies last year?
  • Every day is a new day for blessings and good opportunities.
  • Do you need to do a hard reset on your life? Consider letting go of some friendships/relationships that don’t serve you. Consider a new look. Redecorate your space.
  • Be gentle with yourself. Last year was a lot and you survived so this year the sky is the limit.
  • Are there any bad habits you need to get rid of?
  • What brings you peace?
  • Don’t forget to prioritize your self-care
  • What does your self-care routine comprise of?
