Wow, what a crazy year 2020 has been!
If you told me last December what would happen this year, I might not have believed you.
A pandemic? Mandated quarantine? Business shutdowns?
I would have sooner believed you were describing the plot of an upcoming sci-fi movie about the end of the world!
But, all of this has happened.
2020 presented new challenges and many of us felt like we were barely staying afloat with all the sudden changes. A CDC report showed that the number of adults who reported experiencing anxiety or depression (31%) had tripled since last year. Things weren’t looking so good for us.
Yet, we prevailed.
We’ve made it to the end of 2020. And looking back at all that has happened, I see golden nuggets of wisdom worth harvesting.
Wisdom that teaches us how to live a more meaningful life rich in love and compassion. Lessons that remind us of the importance of self-love and self-care. And trials that encourage making YOU and YOUR well-being a top priority.

If you’ve undergone any type of home renovation, you know what it looks, sounds, and feels like.
Blankets of sawdust everywhere.
The banging and buzzing of hammers and heavy machinery.
Your patience thinning with each unreturned call to the contractor.
Money draining from your bank account for those unexpected expenses that pop up.
Clutter is like standing in quicksand. You’re slowly sinking and you can’t escape.
And if you let clutter swallow up your life, you risk burning out – fast!
For many people, perhaps even for you, it’s easy to express compassion when your loved ones are undergoing hardships.
But can you direct that compassion inward?
When you’re tired, overwhelmed, and feeling the signs of burnout, can you express love and forgiveness towards yourself?
It can be a little difficult, right?
You might even feel guilty about practicing self-compassion. And this guilt likely stems from internalizing a few myths about self-compassion.
Surveys have shown that 80% of people don’t fulfill their new year’s resolutions. People quit, often after experiencing signs of burnout. Maybe it’s time to try something different. Instead of setting a resolution, try setting new year’s intentions.
