How Do You Make Things Work Out? Here’s The Answer You Didn’t Expect…

STOP!
Read that again. ☝⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There’s absolutely no doubt this was a tough, challenging year for myself personally. I’m certain it’s been a challenge for you also.

BUT!

There have been so many wonderful highlights in this year. Like new blessings, renewed opportunities I had or didn’t make time for, and a much needed PAUSE to reflect on other things I unconsciously and unintentionally take for granted.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Plus- my “Pivotability” has improved 10 fold! ♻️

If 2020 taught me anything, it can be simply summed up in one word… ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
…RESILIENCE. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They say when the going gets tough, the _____ ____ _____. Even when it sucks. Even when it seems impossible to win.

2020 threw (and landed) some surprising punches. They hit HARD. If you’re feeling bruised, battered, confused, and dizzy with uncertainty, so am I. But I choose to keep fighting, and going for all 10 rounds.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Put your dukes up! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Because the ONLY way 2020 wins is if we quit! It won’t win without a fight. SO DON’T QUIT! Let’s whoop ass the rest of this year.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
ROLL CALL: Who’s fighting with me?
