Here we are December 30, 2020, just a day away from the end of 2020. This morning I was watching the Today Show, and they did an segment on the “famous” people who have died in 2020. Wow, in 2020 there were a great deal of “famous” (in my opinion) people who lost their lives. I know being 44 years old, I recognize more people than my 18 year old daughter but still there were a lot! Ones that stuck out to me were Kobe Bryant, Ruth Ginsburg, Alex Trebek, and Kenny Rodgers!! I know there are tons more but these I feel were significant to me.
Kobe Bryant was one that was quite a shock to everyone, I think for many reasons. Even though I hate the Lakers (being a Utah Jazz fan), I did admire Kobe for his work ethic. After his NBA career he did amazing things in all sorts of charities, his kids, and mentoring. He definitely set a good example of what hard work and dedication can do.
Ruth Ginsburg, she laid the ground work for all women! The perfect person for young women to look up to and use as an example of what a woman can do!
Kenny Rodgers!! He sang the best songs, that EVERYONE knows!!
2020 in my opinion flew by! I can hardly remember much of it as it just all ran together. Our springs and summers usually consist of concerts, sporting events, vacations, festivals, fun stuff like that. This year it was just the same thing everyday! So it all kinda ran together as a big blurrr..
So I guess that is why I am excited for 2021.. I’n not going to set some crazy New Year’s resolutions or promise not to do certain things. 2021 will be the year of making everyday count. Taking advantage of everyday to be my best me.. What that will entail I have no idea..
What I do want to do is, every night I want to set some expectation of what I want to accomplish the next day. I will have at least 1 goal for personal, 1 goal for business, 1 goal for family, and 1 for the future. I think if everyday has a purpose it will feel as though each day counted and was “lived”. I know COVID prevents some things from happening, but I think I have allowed myself to be controlled by something that was out of my hands.
A year ago I was the victim of a violent attack.. This has changed me drastically.. I fear going into public alone, I fear driving alone, and I fear running into my attacker (as he is free until trial in a couple months). I know it takes time to heal from something like that, I just need to face my fears and not let it control me. I want to be be normal again..
So making 2021 count.. Making life matter again and living my best life, is my goal.
What are some of your goals???
