Why, you ask?
Because it made me stronger, brought me closer (not physically) to a lot of people in my community, and taught me so much about myself and the world.
It wasn’t an easy year. Far from it. But it was a year that allowed me to do so many things I might not have been able to do, and it brought me to where I am today.
My 2020 in review:
💜 I helped turn a 21’ trailer into our first tiny home on wheels.
❤️ I fully embraced minimalism and downsized my belongings to live a more intentional life.
💙 I traveled throughout the backcountry of British Columbia with Cam & Yama for a few months.
💚 I connected with my community virtually and built stronger relationships with so many people.
💗 I went to my hometown in the prairies to visit my family (from a distance).
💛 I began saying “no” to things I didn’t want to do or couldn’t take on (I’m still working on not feeling guilty about it!).
🧡 I relocated to a new city (bonus: I have family close by now!).
🤍 I began developing new services for my business to help people in-person AND virtually.
I’m proud of what I accomplished last year and I’m grateful to come out of 2020 stronger than ever. I hope you take some time to reflect on your positives from last year as well.
Of course it wasn’t an easy year.
I, like many others, struggled. A LOT.
But challenging changes helps you learn new ways to adapt. Adaptation builds confidence, makes you more knowledgeable, and overall makes you stronger.
Remember, perception is everything.
2020 wasn’t a bad year, it was a different year, a distinct year, and a depending how you look at it, a defining year.
