Whew!! It’s almost over. It wasn’t a terrible year for me. It was actually the best year I’ve had in a very long time. It started out rocky and painful and I fell down quite a few times, but here I am…still standing and stronger than ever!
I almost divorced my husband, I broke off a 40 year relationship with my best friend, and I found my strength to just keep moving. I feel as though I’ve had an awakening and I’m just now seeing the world again. A world that looks totally different. A world with new friends, new attitudes, and new opportunities.
I’m still amazed at how this awful year turned into the biggest transformation of my life. I’m so grateful that the universe gave me a push into that first Tony Robbins Challenge. It gave me the hope and excitement I needed to get to where I am now. I met so many beautiful, encouraging, supportive, people in the last year and it just makes me feel so grateful for every little thing.
There have been some hiccups and a few tears. I’ve lost a few people but I’ve found an abundance of supportive people that are now like my family and I love them all. I’ve learned so many new things that I would have never even thought I would even be interested in and I’ve helped a few people to get back up and take on life as if they were lottery winners!. I’ve stepped out and shown the world all of me, the good, bad and the ugly and guess what?? I have had more support and encouragement than I’ve ever had in my life! I’m free from judgement… because I no longer care what people say about me. I’m free in that I no longer hide my history and my flaws from the world and I’m free because I’ve found my purpose and I’m confident that I really can help others.
To you reading this… don’t hide your self from the world because you think you will not be loved or supported. Don’t hide from what you think people will say about you. Don’t hide. You were made unique and you were given a gift to use while here in this life. Your gift is not like mine or anyone else’s and you will have your own story to tell. You’ll have your own person or situation to use your gifts for. It may be small, like making someone smile who’s been sad or it could be huge like saving the world, but you’ll never know if you’re hiding. So come on out of the shadows and show the world who you are and what you can do. There are alot of people on this planet and I’m sure there is someone that needs to hear your story!
We’ve all had to adapt or change careers in some capacity with the pandemic and the lockdowns they’ve had us on this past year. From what I’ve seen, it has been a huge success for those that have accepted the change and stepped up to the challenge of finding a new career. Even those like me who are working at home with the kids and spouses in tow. I’ve seen people lose their jobs and immediately go home to scour the internet to see what they could do to have an online business. I’ve seen businesses close their doors and bring their business service to the internet and now that’s what they’ll do full time! I’ve seen so many people pull together and support each other. This is what we are supposd to do!
We are all in this together and pulling together to help each other in our communities, is what we should always do…not just in a pandemic. It’s been an eye opening year for sure. I was doubting the human race at one time because of all the ugly I’ve seen. This past year I have seen such Grace and Mercy given by so many, and because of the truly genuine love and support these communities have shown each other, I have Faith in people again.
I hope that everyone who reads this grows their businesses as big as they can think them being. I hope everyone gets healthy mentally, physically, and emotionally. I hope you all mend those broken relationships. I hope the homeless, abused, addicts, and alcoholics finally find what they need to get well and live lives of purpose. I hope no child goes hungry or missing and I hope every child has a safe, loving, place to live. Most of all…I hope everyone finds the peace in their hearts that they need to be happy again and that we all come to support and encouage everyone we come to in the road of life.
Happy New Year from my family to you and yours! May 2021 be the best year yet!!
