Reflections On 2020

In reflecting upon this year, I’ve come to realize that this is the first year that I’ve been able to acknowledge a feeling of pride in myself for the year I experienced.

I realize that in years past, I allowed all that didn’t happen, all that I didn’t improve, and all of my shortcomings to overshadow that which I did do, that which I improved, and that which were my strengths.

In this moment, I feel so empowered, and I can see now how disempowering it was to not acknowledge myself. I was never good enough for my own standards.

I know 2020 has been quite the year, but I am so grateful for the opportunity it gave to isolate. I’m so grateful, as it gave me the permission that I apparently needed to go inward and face myself in a way that was much easier to ignore in the happenings of a more external life.

What are you grateful for from 2020?
