Here we are. The last day of the year. I don't know about you, but 2020 felt like I was swimming against a current underwater most of the time. Coming up for air in joyous times and moments , then swept away and drowning again. I came into 2020 with high hopes. In February, and I got the part time job of my dreams- which I have written about before.
Then March 13, a Friday the 13th that no one in the education field will ever forget- that was all shattered. That same month, I had to PIVOT (everyone's favorite word of the year) and pivot , I did- Valor & Grace was born, and I continued to share my love of essential oils and wellness with all of you.
I went from a tutor to an educational consultant, and I couldn't be more grateful for the students I work with each week who have shown academic progress all year long.
Then came the race issues of the world. Shouting a huge thank you to all of those who still see me for the person I am regardless of color.
From there- I continued to work hard, and landed a contract writing position with a writing firm! HUGE! It will be even more huge, in 2021! Can't wait to see where that goes!
Then we sold our house in less than 24 hours. Bought a new one, and had our closing delayed several times.
My elderberry syrup is becoming a staple in our little town, and in places like Texas, Ohio, Hawaii, and California. Glad to serve others! My final proposal was submitted, and I'm editing in stages. Dr. Smiley 2021. YES! So much still to be thankful for. I got a new ride, and wrecked it. Thankful that my family and I are safe.
Anyone else feel that drowning, breathing and drowning again going on? I don't write this for sympathy- I'm writing it so that I can let it go. Leaving it all behind- and tiptoeing into 2021 with a kind, loving and prayerful heart and spirit.
Did you notice I said tip toeing? Yep- walking reaaaal slow. Healing does not happen overnight- I am thankful and grateful for those who stood by me all year long. Your support is so appreciated. 2020 was one for the books.
Praying health and happiness over everyone in 2021! Sending love to all, because this year really hit hard.
Cheers to growth, and confidence in 2021. Which brings me to my word for the year: VALOR = confidence. Whats yours?
