Weekend Wisdom: The secret to living an intentional life is trusting yourself to know what you want.
It’s the last Weekend Favorites of 2020.
It’s almost time for a new year. I know nothing changes overnight, but I love the possibility, hope and time that a new year offers. Even though in many ways, I’ve been wishing 2020 away, I’m going to linger in these last few days of what at times felt like an impossible year. I’m going to reflect on questions like …
- What were the lows? What did you learn from them?
- What were the highs? Did you celebrate them?
- What do you want to leave behind?
- What do you want to make room for?
- Who would you like to thank?
- How can you take even better care of your physical and mental health in the new year?
- What creative projects would you like to pursue?
- Where will you go when it’s safe to travel again?
- How can you get even more comfortable with staying still?
- How do you want to give back?
- What steps will you take to be more you?
One afternoon between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, I’ll make a cup of tea, turn on all of the holiday lights, start some quiet music and curl up on the couch with a notebook and pen answering these questions and more.
Consider an intentional closing of the year to become even more present and available for 2021. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us. It might not be easy, pretty or what we expect, but now we know we can do it together.
