January is always a time for reflection and goal setting for me, and many others, but this year more than ever before seems to be challenging. I can speculate, but no one really knows what this year has in store for each of us. We never really do, although, other years made it easier to predict. Based on the first four words I saw in a type of word search on Facebook, my words for 2021 are power, family, gratitude, and love. Those are perfect; however, they could have easily also been my words for 2020. I believe in looking at the positive things in life, but this year has brought so much sadness into people’s lives that I will not focus on any of the “good” 2020 brought into my life in this post. Instead I want to look at where I want to go. When my father was diagnosed with brain cancer and then died in May of 2000, I vowed to live a regret-free life because his death showed me how short life truly is. Over these last twenty years, I still tried to make wise choices and plan for the future, but I did not want to let fear stop me from pursuing my dreams. It has not been easy, but I believe that it has been better than if I let those fears and insecurities dominate my choices. Granted, those still influenced some decisions, but I am slowly releasing negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that no longer reflect who I am and who I choose to be. This year will not be without challenges I am sure, but I look forward to it with strength and gratitude. I vow to cherish and connect with my family and friends even if we cannot be together. I boldly jump into 2021 with love, living in the present moment of each day and Looking For the Good.
