Lessons Learned in 2020

  1. If you love where you live and who you live with, isolation is a piece of cake. 
  2. If you have down days, and you will, the morning will usually wash those feelings away. 
  3. You can do with less. 
  4. Vision for the long term helps. This too will end. 
  5. Reaching out, connecting with others, and helping and supporting others is one way to stay sane. 
  6. Having a purpose each day is important. 
  7. Projects, projects, projects. They keep you busy and focused. 
  8. Faith and hope are key. 
  9. There are things you can control and things you cannot. Don’t worry about the things you can’t control. 
  10. Writing your thoughts, especially your gratitude, can be a good way to spend your time and energy. 
  11. Capitalize on opportunities that present themselves, e.g. investing in a new hobby or interest. 
  12. Spend as much time as you can outdoors doing something active, if you are able. 
  13. Stress brings out more of who people really are. 

2020 taught a lot of us good lessons. Some were harder to learn than others. It certainly will make facing the rest of 2021 easier. Hope you take a few minutes to enjoy each day, look around you, and encourage the people who are important to you!
