Like many others out there, I had some big thoughts for the year 2020. And while it didn't end up being the year of the concert with ending up backstage like I wrote about here or accomplishing everything in this post, it's been pretty spectacular overall. And in some ways, individually, it's been my best year yet. Considering everything that has happened for people as a whole I feel a little selfish saying that. Then on the flip side of that, it's me finding the silver lining of a crumby situation.
Being a homebody and an introvert I thrived during the downtime at home. And I use the term downtime incredibly loosely. I worked in one way or another every day I wasn't at my typical day to day job. I like to keep busy with projects, it helps my mind work through other things; the ever multitasker. I was able to have the time to dedicate to house projects, more creative posts for here and Instagram, time for other projects I'm a part of, reconnecting with old friends (digitally), and most importantly it gave me time to think. And I mean really think.
I would definitely classify myself as an analyzer and a thinker.. honestly? I'm an over-analyzer and an over-thinker. I like to be in my head sometimes because it's proven to be incredibly beneficial; it's also why I love writing. You can get all the thoughts swimming in your head in an organized fashion and start to make sense of it all. Where I'm at now, and where I'm going is my absolute favorite place I've ever been. I'm reminded of the ending of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, "But Charlie, don't forget what happened to the man who suddenly got everything he always wanted... He lived happily ever after." Things are happening and I'm so grateful and excited to see them unfold.
2020: different than what we all expected, and sometimes that's okay.
Thanks for reading!!
