Happy 2021!!! I don’t know about you but I am ready to move on from 2020. I guess hindsight really is 2020.

This past year has been crazy yet there were wonderful things that happened. The best was I got married to my best friend. We have been together for a long time but 2020 was the time to make it happen. Make it official. So as one of my best girlfriends says, I am not allowed to complain about 2020! No complaints here. Just more of a let’s move on to hopefully a more productive year.

We had a great adventure early on in 2020 where we got to take a cruise. We went scuba diving in St. Martin and then one of the best adventures was being around the whales as they were mating and having their babies in the Dominican. Something that if you can ever do, go! It was incredible.

As we begin to move on from quarantine with a brighter future ahead I started something new this year. I decided that small monthly goals were something to try. I purchased a Commit 30 journal and decided that instead of Resolutions that cover the whole year, I would try small monthly goals. This seems more doable. My first month I am participating in Winter Warrior. Basically, you have to run/walk at least one mile a day outside for the whole month of January. Since this is usually a cold dark month up here in New England this can be difficult. I have completed this task the last two years so I thought 2021 should be the same. I also added in hydration to my goals this month. Bought a motivational bottle from etsy to keep me going throughout the day. I don’t know about you but I was not drinking enough water. I started this on 12/30/20 and have now been doing it a few days. Man, that is a lot of water and lots of trips to the bathroom. My hope for this is to feel better. I have those moments where I just don’t feel great and then I remember I have not had anything to drink most of the day. So here goes nothing but a few extra trips to the bathroom.

Finally my big challenge for the year is my word of the year: Journey – An experience or process that leaves you changed; trail of experience. From here to there

“All of life is a journey, which paths we take, what we look back on, and what we look forward to is up to us. We determine our destination, what kind of road we will take to get there, and how happy we are when we get there.”

I figured we are all on a journey. My goal this year is to be intentional on this journey. To be aware of the paths I choose and to make my goals enrich this journey.

Let the journey begin…

How was your 2020? Have you ever chosen a word of the year? Do you have one for 2021?
