Hey Y’all Hey! Kijan Ou Ye! How You Doing?
Reflecting on 2020
Well here we are finally! The end of 2020!
This year has been a crazy year to say the least. So many worldly events happened this year.
I started this year with the 2020 vision mindset. I had a goal in mind and I wanted to accomplish it. However at the end of the first quarter we all were hit with some major roadblocks. Corona came and literally shut everything down!
While living the quarantine life, for a few weeks I did let it discourage me and I was left sitting still. But quarantine life wasn’t the only thing that left me sitting still for awhile. The unjust killings of Black people literally left me heartbroken especially since I am raising a Black Boy in America. I just kept thinking to myself when will this end and praying that my son will never have to encounter police brutality.
In January, I wrote a blog post titled New Decade | New Year | #2020 Vision and in that post I discussed my goals for 2020.
So let’s reflect on my 2020 goals…
Leaning on Faith
I wanted to grow spiritually this year and with all the standing still that I did, I’m proud to say my faith never wavered. There is something about having faith that is indescribable. I leaned on my faith this year more than ever before. My heart is filled with gratitude and I’m so thankful for all the blessings this year has brought.
If you’ve been with me from the beginning of the year, you know how much saving and working to create generational wealth and break these generational curses mean to me. I’m proud to say that this is the first year that I finished the savings challenge. In the past I use to start a savings challenge and would never see it through. This year, mostly because it’s no longer about me, I was able to complete the savings challenge and start an emergency fund! Yay for me!!
Save! Save! Save! Goal for 2020
Am I the only one that struggles with consistency? I have my moments where when I’m on go, I show up and produce all the time. However, when I’m not on go, I tend to not produce. This year I made a vow to myself to be consistent. To be honest, I could have been a bit more consistent than I was. But y’all I am extremely proud of myself and how I was able to stay on path this year with my savings challenge as well as my blog. There’s something about showing up for yourself that makes you so proud.
2020 for me is the year that I planted my seeds and will allow them to continue to grow for years to come. To learn to celebrate my strength, resilience and perseverance.
I made myself the mission for 2020 and I achieved that mission! In 2021, I can’t wait to see what I will accomplish. Going forward, I choose to be unapologetically me, be more me than I’ve ever been!
To sum up everything, I would say the biggest lesson 2020 taught me is regardless of all the obstacles that gets put in my way, always show up for myself. The power of believing in yourself is really powerful. You will amaze yourself to how far you can go.
Walk by faith and not by sight and I will be able to figure things out
What is the biggest lesson 2020 taught you?
This will be my last post this year.
So I want to wish you all a Happy Holidays and Have a blessed and safe Happy New Year!
Until the next post…
Live with purpose, Love with passion, Laugh with pleasure
