Happy New Year from the Motherland, where I’ve spent the past month frolicking under the sun, in warm bodies of water, in markets, with family, friends, at home in my First World.
Ending the decade and beginning a new decade on this note has given me the space to introspect, be quiet with myself, have challenging conversations with the people I love, and process my despair.
Here are things I am choosing to focus on in 2020
Leaving room to be surprised by life.
Prioritizing goals that I find joy in the process of achieving,
not just in the outcome of achieving said goal.
More clear communication of my boundaries.
I wish us all a year (and decade) where our needs are met, where hope feels stronger than despair, and we are loved in the ways we want to be loved, by the people we love.
