#024 Lessons Learned in 2020

For some people, 2020 has been a devastating year, full of obstacles and hardship. For others, 2020 has been a challenging year full of opportunity and growth.

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”
~ Maya Angelou

Look for opportunities instead of obstacles.

Early in 2020, I followed a lot of the narrative about how bad 2020 was turning out to be. Inadvertently, I started believing all of the talk and I started seeing all of the obstacles.

Before I knew it, I was down, depressed, worried, and convinced that 2020 was indeed the worst year ever.

Luckily I started looking for the opportunities instead of the obstacles.

I realized that, thanks to some of the issues we’ve been facing in 2020, there are TONS of opportunites!

  • More parents need help with their teens than ever.
  • I get to spend way more time with my family.
  • I’ve had to focus more on the few things that I can control.
  • I’ve grown and blossomed over the past year.

Control what makes you happy.

This was a hard lesson. I am a social butterfly. I love being around people. I even love going to the store to do grocery shopping.

I love getting together with friends and playing board games for hours at a time at a local board game night.

I love going to live sporting events.

COVID-19 took a lot of that away from me.

I realized that some of the things that made me happiest were outside of my control.

So I decided that I wanted to control the things that make me happy .

  • I am happy when I serve others.
  • I am happy when I’m helping others.
  • I’m happy when I’m loving my family.
  • I’m happy when I am growing.

Things can change, and I’ll be okay.

For as much as I generally like change and get excited by the mere idea of change, there have been several changes that have happened this year that I have not been happy with.

Going to live personal events was something that I loved.

I’ve learned that things can change, and I’ll be okay. I don’t have to love, but I don’t want to argue with the new reality either.

Things always change. It’s up to me to be okay and to make the most out of it.

The little things mean the most.

I love my family!

I love coaching and helping other families.

I love living in a country that is so alive, vibrant, passionate, sometimes very opinionated, and doing their very best!

I’m grateful for my health.

I’m grateful for my life!
