2021 - My Year In Review

I used the last strength in me to write this post. Before the holidays I promised I was going to do a lot of upskilling, reading, learning, and writing but none of that is happening and I really feel guilty for doing nothing productive; however, I realize it's the holidays and I am doing what I should be doing - REST. As much as we would want to be productive at any given opportunity we find ourselves, it is important to note that there is no pride in suffering from burnout and stress.

Hello 2021

“ Begin today, Declare out loud to the universe that you are willing to let go of struggle and eager to learn through joy”          - Sarah Ban Breathnach It’s a new year and once again we don't know what it has in store for us. Last year really tried our strength and patience I can’t lie, we cried, we laughed, we gained, we lost, we learned new things, skills, etc and I am glad it has come to an end.  This new year is an opportunity for us to start over and rewrite history. And speaking of starting over, what have you planned for yourself for the new year? I plan to work on my financial and career goals especially this year. I would also love to read a lot of books.  As we step into the new year, I want us to cultivate a positive mindset, I want us to milk every opportunity presented to us, I want us to never forget that we deserve better for ourselves. So what are you waiting for? write down your financial goals, write down those career goals, personal developments, plans, etc. S
