Whew, it is FINALLY December 31, 2020! Turn to your Neighbor and say we made it (Insert Shout). 2020 has been a hell of a year...For me, it started with a hurricane on my birthday (which is in 12 days) then we slid right into a pandemic that has unfortunately claimed the lives of over 300,000 American Citizens. Thankfully I haven’t been touched by this virus but a few people very close to me have and they are still in the land of the living so father I thank you.
Now if I’m being honest I came into this year with big plans and I do mean big plans. Don’t get me wrong COVID-19 wrecked things but it did allow me to grind like no other and get stuff done. However, for every one thing I checked off my list there were two things I didn’t even think about doing. And that’s ok because this was a year of learning, growing, and glowing with a few trips, slips, and stumbles buttttt no matter what I never fell down!! So I know many of us will spend the next few days cursing this year, singing our shoulda, woulda, coulda, and making a long list of resolutions for 2021. Well, I want to leave you with a few things you should hold onto in the new year.
Give yourself some grace
Take care of yourself ( health is wealth)
Love more and laugh often
Be kind for you never know what another person is going through
Remember the dream is free the hustle is sold separately
Don’t give up because your plans don’t work, change the plans not the goal
24 hours really is enough time to get s**t done, be wise with your time
Celebrate the small wins
Don’t talk about it be about it
Keep grinding even if the people close to you don’t support eventually they will and it’ll be too late
Get your affairs in order and keep them that way!
Protect your peace above all
Comparison is the thief of joy
Just do it, don’t worry about finding the right moment it doesn’t exist
Always remember you are your own secret sauce
Invest in yourself
Pray Plan Act! In the order!
Listen actively to understand then apply
Speak to God daily
2020 didn’t take you out so celebrate yourself, your life, your family, and all who are close to you. I hope that your tears you shed this year turn to champagne and we toast it up in the New Year🥂
