I can’t believe we are already in the last week of January. Reflecting on this first month of the year 2021 brings light to ways to live my life with purpose and gratitude. Reconnect and balance are the two words that I chose to help me live intently and with purpose.
The most important lesson that I have learned from 2020 is not to take anything for granted. I have realized how short our life can be. Doing what I love and being with those that I love is all that matters. I am setting my inner child free to reconnect with the things that bring me joy. This year, I will be on a journey to reconnect with myself. I will reconnect with faith to achieve the impossible. I will reconnect with my joy to fully embrace life. I will reconnect with my family and my friends to love and be loved.
As a wife, mother, daughter, and nurse, it’s so easy for me to get caught in my thousand day-to-day routines and lose sight of the big picture. I cannot be everywhere, and I cannot do everything. Therefore I need to prioritize and focus on only what truly matters. I want to take a minute to breathe, pause, and be fully present in what I decide to do. I need to balance my life, weigh everything, and focus only on what’s essential.
In the end, I am positive that taking the time to reconnect with myself and balancing my life will bring me pure joy and peace.
Have you chosen any words for this year? If so, share it with me.
