This post has been pretty difficult to start. This will be a fairly short one. I’ve typed, erased, typed, erased again and this is what made the cut. I guess I will start with the truth. 2020 was tough. Like really tough. I planned to do a lot last year that I wasn’t able to do, but so did Breonna. So did George, Ahmad, Tyree, Rayshard & Daniel. So did the countless others that never made headlines. I will leave that there for now.
Covid showed up and turned our lives around. A gift and a curse for some. Simply a curse for others.
As for me, I am accepting the bad knowing that I can’t change it and I choose to show gratitude for the good. I was blessed enough to make it through. Most of my family and loved ones, made it through. For that I am grateful. Still, it was tough. In short, I am happy to say, “Farewell 2020.”
I look forward to the growth I know that you have in store for me. I also understand that this may come with various levels of discomfort. I embrace the things that are neccesary in order for me to reach my highest self. I step into this new year with an open and forgiving heart. I welcome all of the beautiful changes in front of me. I submit to the greatness that is within me leaving no room for fear or self-doubt.
Hail 2021! We’ve got work to do.
Stay tuned for my 2020 reel! I started on it late, but I hope to have it finished within the week.
