I knew that I wanted 2020 to be different. It's easy to say it, and a lot harder to actually make it happen.
But there's something unique about the power of intention.
I think for a while I was floating. I kind of let life just happen to me rather than living with a specific purpose. Insert major life change here, and all of a sudden, I'm in a space where I have to evaluate what I want to do and why I want to do it. It feels a little like being in high school and filling out college applications again. So far, there have been 2 specific lessons that have come in this time.
1. I have a lot more growing up to do. I think everyone has a moment of reckoning with themselves when they realize that they have to put some old ways of living and thinking to death to get to the good part.
2. I think my 7-year-old self had a lot more wisdom than I realized. We lose sight... I lost sight of the idea that anything was possible. You get older and it's so much easier to put limitations on ourselves until we place ourselves on the outside of our purpose. While I know that I need to be reasonable, I think there's a place for the giant, scary dreams that I had when I was a kid. Cause those giant, scary dreams push me towards my purpose.
So here's to 2020.
The year of intention.
