Back to Center: Update 7

2020 has been one hell of a year.

I’m stressed, my anxiety is a hot mess, and writing this blog post has been a struggle.

It’s felt like an endless gut punch. Kobe died, COVID-19 hit the streets, and an election year have all weighed on my spirit.

I’ve struggled with my creativity throughout the year. It comes in waves where I don’t want to do anything & waves where I get a rush of ideas at one time.

In between the gut punches, there have been some bright spots.

  1. The pandemic sent my job home to telework, something I’ve wanted to do for years.
  2. I got my 2021 Passion Planner in the mail & I look forward to using it to not only keep me organized but also a creative outlet.
  3. I learned to give myself a lot of grace this year.
  4. I made adjustments in my home in anticipation of the upcoming cold weather months.

I don’t expect 2021 to be the start of everything suddenly better. What I do expect to do remain focused while being gentle with myself. That’s all we can do at this point, right?

Until next time,
