Thank You, 2020
Typically on the last day of the year I look back on the days I lived with gratitude. Some of the days may not have been my best, due to our pandemic but I still gained something in spite of my disappointments, challenges, pains and sorrows. I learned a lot, including how comfortable and at peace I can be living in isolation, even though I am a full-blooded extrovert. This year, very much like my cancer journey, I learned I am resilient. In fact I am unstoppable.
Below you will find some of the lessons I learned and/or re-learned about myself:
I have grown rather than fallen apart.
I am stronger, not weaker.
I am wiser, not foolish.
I am filled with gratitude, not empty and complaining.
I am resilient and moving ahead, not stuck.
I am bright with inspiration, not dulled by sameness.
I am love not fear.
I am budding, growing, reaching, expanding, not dormant and waiting.
I am excitedly optimistic, not grim and fatalistic.
I am open to unconditional peace and joy, not dependent and unworthy of blessings.
I am hopeful, not closed and withdrawn.
I am leaning in, not holding back.
I am in the game of life, not on the sidelines.
I am ready for more. So bring it on 2021! I’m ready for you.
