Hey Hey Hey, today is the last day of the year. Remember at this time in 2020 how we all thought that 2021 was gonna be the ish… for us. But 2021 and her niece Covid had other plans. It just goes to show that while we are busy making plans, life is ready to pitch those curve balls. I know that so many of us caught those curve balls this year and dealt with quite a bit and honestly probably still is dealing; my prayers are with you….But while we may have dealt with a lot, I can say for sure that a lot of us learned some valuable lessons in honoring ourselves.
But First, My Highlights!
My highlights for 2021 was going after what I wanted and finally getting the Underwriter role I wanted. Hooray!!!! My other highlight was welcoming my granddaughter Alessandra Cecilia into the world, my son and his wife created such a beautiful angel.
My Low Points!
You guys I started experiencing anxiety and maybe even a little depression. I did not know what was going on with me, but I knew I was not myself. I love walking trails, reading, and writing, yet all I could muster up to do was watch Netflix or Hulu. I am a very private person for the most part, so I did not want to share how I was feeling with anyone. I just thought I’d find ways to snap out of it. I was able to snap out of those feelings honestly by sitting in it and facing it. I journaled about what I was feeling, what were my fears, what triggered those feelings, and what I can do better to take care of myself. Once I was able to sort those feelings and thoughts out, I started to feel better. Therapy is still something I am seeking in the new year to make sure I am good though.
What 2021 Taught Me!
2021 taught me learn the value in being still and listening for God’s guidance. It taught me to love myself more and know that I am worth coming first in my life. 2021 taught me to hold on tight to what I love and to go where I am celebrated and not tolerated. I would have to say my biggest lesson was that life waits for no one, so live it or exist in it. I choose to live in it and that is what I will continue to do in the new year. To love and be loved. To run fast after what I want and not to look back. And oh, not give a care about what anyone thinks about it. It’s my life to live.
Friends I want you to live that way too. And for you that is reading this, I pray that 2022 be best year of your life coming and that God covers and protects you through it.
Talk in the New Year!!!!!
