Letting Go Of 2020

I am sitting here alone in my family room with the Christmas tree lights on. It’s quiet because the kids are upstairs as dinner isn’t ready yet. I was thinking about this past year and all that we’ve had going on and as you well know, it’s been a lot for us all.

But I’m not bitter over 2020. In fact, I’m grateful for it in many ways. Sure, it’s been frustrating, scary and hard to deal with, but there are positives to it as well.

How are you feeling about it?

I’m sure that we could talk about all the bad stuff, but I’d prefer to try to see the good in it. I learned a lot. I let go of even more than that and my kids and I stayed healthy throughout it all. I feel grateful because I know of many friends that didn’t have a good year, lost jobs, got Covid, lost family members etc.

I try to count the little things as well as the big things when it comes to staying positive.

So I’m raising a glass to 2020 for teaching me life lessons that I had never imagined I would need and strengthening my resilience to keep going when times got hard. I reconnected with a lot of friends over 2020. I released a lot of negativity. My kids and I got closer. I found more gratitude in my life for the little things. I saw life in a different light and found a way to navigate the stormy seas. And we’re still here. That’s the best part.

Thank you all for being my blogging friends. Happy New Year to all of you!

    This is one I will file under Friendships and New Starts. I think you’d agree that they have been equally important this year. I have found them to both be important throughout my adult life, though not always concurrently!
