New Year, Same You?
With 2020 behind us, it is easy to want to erase the whole year and maybe parts of yourself too...
It makes sense - 2020 was a year that challenged us to face ourselves. With stay-at-home orders, we were forced to take a closer look at our environment and relationships:
-Who do we want in our 'pods?'
-How do we maintain relationships without close physical contact?
-How does our home feel when we actually sit and use the space?
-How do we manage fear?
-What risks am I willing to take?
-What does my job mean to me without my coworkers and other benefits?
The list goes on...
There might be a deep desire to eliminate all these questions and anxieties from existence. BUT, I encourage you not to - these questions and grief forced us to enter a space that is usually avoided.
Maintain your sense-of-self.
Integrate the growth and hardships.
And may this year be full of growth that forms from seeds planted in 2020.
