It was a tough year for so many across the globe. Yet, like every new day, we begin this year anew. Before setting goals, resolutions and intentions, which are good to do, let us first stop moving and doing. Let's take some slow, deep mindful breaths. Ahhhh. Here are some lessons from 2020 we can reflect on as we enter into 2021.
Do not renege on your responsibility to make yourself a priority over caring for others.
Stop and check in with yourself regularly, to ensure what you committed is not ego based.
Feed what drives you, not what drains you.
Since negativity such as racism, sexism, discrimation and malice can be passed on without us realizing it, get an honest accountability check to see if you are a carrier.
Be open to learning. Growth requires shifting that sometimes does not feel good.
Express your gratefulness so you can hear and use your own gratitude to fight against the negativity in your head and around you.
See and honor the beauty of God in all things and in all people.
Take nothing and no one for granted.
Be present with those you love.
Be mindful of your neighbor, genuinely smile, say hi. You never know what they are going through.
Through wisdom, safely be kind to people you don't know.
Give from the love of who you are, not because the person deserves it, but because that's who you are. But don't be stupid, don't ever violate your worthiness.
