Hello 2021. It’s so exciting to be able to start new ideas, let go of things that no longer serve us and think about what we want to bring into our lives. At the end of each year, I go inward and reflect on my year.
My intentions for 2020 was to travel and to promote my book and Women Empower Each Other Guide for organizations that work with teen girls and women.
In February I was preparing for a women’s one-day retreat on being enough. There was no retreat. I went through all this mind fuck stuff of not being good enough, why didn’t it happen and so forth. Wow, after all the emotional drama that was going on in my head, none of it matter, as the retreat would have been cancelled because covid happened.
I think of the expectations that I had for 2020. Life came to a halt and things changed. was out of sorts for a while as I didn’t know what I was going to do with my work and with my life. I prayed and asked the Universe what is it that I need to do and guide me. I sat still. I was silent. For days, I dug deep. Then the light bulb went off…. I was to create a podcast for women. Wow, this was exciting. I had listened to my daughter’s podcast and loved it. It opened up my world. I decided to repurpose my written material and take it live. This was going to be life changing for me. I was going to be seen and heard, something I have been afraid of most of my life. I am finally living bold and big!
I researched on how to podcast and at first it was daunting, but I took one step in front of the other. In the last 10months I have scripted two months’ worth of podcast. I am ready to launch my podcast I Got Your Back Girlfriend, which is due to launch February 23rd. You may ask, why that date? It’s my dad’s birthday and I think it would be a great way to honor him. When I was young, he told me that I would be a teacher. Well, he is right about that. I have been teaching most of my life.
The silver lining of 2020 was to be more innovative with my business and it’s what I am doing. I think that if covid didn’t happen, I probably would still be doing the same…I was feeling a bit stale anyways, so this is what I needed, to change things up. I am re-branding my website and giving it a facelift. It’s so exciting to me that I have new opportunities and possibilities ahead.
What was the silver lining for you in 2020? What are you welcoming into 2021. I would love to hear what you have to say. Cheers
