Here we are over 30 days into the new year already. Where has the time gone?? I cannot believe we are already looking at February. For not being able to do much of anything these days, I am astounded how fast time is still flying. Ready or not 2021 has arrived and is coming for you!!
I believe we can all agree last year maybe didn’t turn out to be the year we had necessarily planned for, nor was it the year we truly hoped for. It seems like yesterday I was impatiently waiting for 2020 to be in my rearview mirror, for many obvious reasons, with hopes that 2021 would be brighter for everyone. As one year closes and another year quickly takes shape, I don’t know about you, but I often find myself reflecting on what the past year had given me, what it all meant and what I want to do different with the coming year to make the most of everything. I feel most are like this. Are they not? At least I hope you take some time to sit and really look at how you want to kick ass. Somewhat like a new start!
One thing is for certain though, we definitely have been given the opportunity to come out the other side with new perspectives, good, bad or indifferent!! 2020 and now the beginning of 2021 has forced most everyone to grow exponentially. Every challenge we have faced and every challenge we have overcome has created those new perspectives and hopefully a new outlook on what is truly important and how we can adapt to almost anything!!
With all that we have been dealt in 2020 and are continuing to work through in 2021, I am here to tell you it doesn’t have to all be negative. The silver linings are so bright, we just have to know where to find them. On darker days they are hard to pick out, but trust me, they are there for you to find and enjoy! I wasn’t sure how I could make 2021 brighter for myself, my family or my clients and honestly I am still foggy in that area, but I know with time, hard work and a lot of love I will get there.
In between my darker days, there were so many positive things that came out of 2020. It was one of my most successful years in so many ways and I could not be more grateful for my AMAZING clients. There are no words that can describe how thankful I am for every moment I was given!! My year would not have been what it was without you.
I do need to apologize for not being more consistent with my blogs. It has been longer than I would like to admit since my last one came together and definitely a lot longer than what I had intended on sending new words out into the world. So here I am again, trying to jump back into the swing of things! Fingers crossed third times the charm.
So where have I been? Why have you not heard from me until now? Honestly, I didn’t go anywhere! The last part of my year was extremely busy ~ the good busy I wanted and had hoped for!! Cramming 12 months into 6 was slight insanity, but in all honesty, it was the insanity that drives me to go further. There was definitely some great insanity. The kind where you wonder where the time went because you were having so much fun! But mainly it was the type of insanity where you hope it will just end already. Because of all of this, plus everything else going on in my world, I didn’t have it in me to write anything; or come up with anything to write about. The craziness that it was took all of my time, in a great way, but I didn’t have much more in me to give, so my blog took a back seat.
Looking into 2021, I am hopeful I will be able to create memories for everyone again really, really soon!! I miss everyone and all the incredible times we can create together. I miss being with my clients and bringing their unique visions to life. I miss creating MAGIC for others, as well as for myself!! Every thing gives me a beautiful distraction from the insanity and it is just what the doctor has ordered. Most days I can feel it in my bones, that 2021 will be even more impressive than last year, even if there are some unpredictable obstacles waiting for me.
What are you hopeful for??
I cannot wait to be a part of more incredible moments. Fingers crossed it can all start to happen within this month!! You will have to check back again very, very soon to find out about the families I was asked to hang out with last year! All the squishy babies I was lucky enough to snuggle before we locked down again! The weddings I had the privilege of being apart of in years past! As well as all the beautiful goddesses I was able to help show how bad ass and incredible they really are!! There will be plenty of time to show off this years moments ~ once I am able to create them again!!
I don’t think I can honestly say I feel like I am getting my grove back, just yet. Honestly, this lockdown has really knocked me off my game. I am definitely finding it harder this time around to be positive and keep motivated, but one thing I know for sure I will find a new balance soon. The balance I have been searching for throughout this entire pandemic and maybe even before. I know when I do find it, it may be short lived, but maybe, just maybe, it will be there to help me find a little more of myself. To help me create the balance I need more of to better propel forward! You better believe that when I do find it, I will be wanting to kick some serious ass!!
My wish for you in 2021, is for you to please find peace in what was and be grateful for what is about to be!! Here is to another year gone and another that has begun!!
ALRIGHT 2021 ~ whatever you have in store ~ I am ready for you ~ BRING IT ON
