What a year! 2020 will be remembered forever and always as the year of uncertainty and change. There have been so many big and challenging things we’ve had to cope with this year, both on a global and personal front. It’s no wonder we are all very ready to bring this year to a close.

And, as much as we are all ready to put 2020 in our rear-view mirror, what brings closure is the opportunity to reflect, acknowledge, learn and grow.  I like to always take time to reflect on how the year has unfolded, what I’ve accomplished and what I want to create moving forward.

While this year has certainly had its challenges, there have been many successes and breakthroughs as well. Sometimes, in the midst of difficulty and adversity, we lose sight of the good things that happened and what we have learned in the process. I thought I would take this opportunity to share with you what I’ve experienced this past year; my learnings, celebrations and what I am creating for 2021.
