Goodbye 2020

What is your word for 2021? Resolutions are hard. Heck most folks don’t make it past a week. So many people are picking a word to be mindful of throughout the year.

Examples include patience, peace, success, health, rise, advocacy.

I’ve been thinking about mine since last night. Last year my word was joy.

I of course can’t pick just one.

Content: Someone will always be skinnier. Someone will always be more successful, have more followers, be a better writer, make more money. Someone’s life will always appear easier than my own. I don’t like the way noticing these things makes me feel. I want to be content with the beautiful life I have.

Self-discovery: I don’t know who I am anymore. I went from having hobbies and lots of friends and knowing how to have fun to consumed by kids. And while I love being a mother, I need to figure out who I am after. After autism. After special needs. After babies. After my younger years. After.

Present: I do a million things in any given day. But I need to slow down and be present in what I do. When I’m at my son’s hockey game I need to watch him, not catch up on email. When I’m showering I need not be opening up packages of fruit snacks for little boys and yelling for their father. You get the point. I want to do things with purpose.

And laughter. I want to laugh more. Deep, belly, silly laughs that hurt your tummy.

What are yours? I’d love to read them!

Also, this outtake makes me so happy! Bye 2020. Bring on 2021.
