2020 is the year that will be known as the year of the Pandemic and THE election.
A year of the unknown.
A year of firsts.
For some, 2020 will be remembered as the year of loss.
For some, 2020 will be remembered as the year of fear.
For others, 2020 will be remembered as the year of pausing and resetting.
For others, 2020 will be remembered as a year of opportunities.
And for others, 2020 will be a year of looking forward.
As I entered December, I wondered how I could make this last month “COUNT” before the clock strikes midnight on December 31, 2020.
How can I make it “COUNT” as if the past eleven months, have not counted?
But they have.
I’ve had to pivot the way I did business before – for the better – or rather differently.
I’ve had to spend time with my husband like I never had to during the past nineteen years. Yes, we discovered in the process that we really like each other.
I’ve made my time with my kids and grandkids count.
I’ve had to do the holidays and birthdays with family and friends differently.
I’ve had friends lose family. I’ve had friends lose friends.
So, this month, as I close the year,
I’ll be spending my time in service for my current clients;
I’ll be open to the new clients that are looking to coach with me;
I’ll be taking a few days off with immediate family;
I’ll be making sure I take care of myself.
But, not because I have to make this last month of 2020 “COUNT.”
Not because I’m in urgency to end the year.
But, because I want to smooth the way for 2021.
As you bring 2020 to a close during December, what are you choosing to do? For all of us, it will be different. Are you in urgency wanting to bring 2020 to a close or are you carefully paving the way for a New Year?
