Shifting Perspective

“Are We There Yet?”

-Me, asking God if 2021 can come sooner...

As we wrap up a year of uncertainty, tests, and new directions... a sense of relief falls over me. Can you relate?

“How are you?” Has become the most loaded question of 2020. With trips canceled, loved ones lost, opportunities missed... and countless Murphy’s Law detours, it’s safe to say that it was a character building year.

But do you know what wasn’t canceled?

Your resilience.

*Queue eye roll*

Sure. It’s easy to focus on the pitfalls of the last 12 months. It’s easy to ask “what would’ve happened if the pandemic hadn’t happened?”

But I PROMISE YOU- if you choose a different perspective, I guarantee you will see that 2020 was the year that Made you and didn’t break you.

Don’t believe me? Okay, Humor me.

Ask yourself this question:

“What is one thing that I could be incredibly grateful for (if I wanted to) that 2020 brought me?”

The key to seeing things from a new perspective is having the desire to do so. The truth is, you could find something to be grateful for. The seemingly worst things could be your greatest lessons.

So take a moment. Ask yourself- “What did work out for me?” I bet you come up with more than one thing and then you realize that 2020 was actually a great year.
