I think it's safe to say 2020 was not an ideal time for anyone. But one thing I learned this year is to see the positives in the midst of negatives. But it's okay to realize 2020 was a complete shit show. But there are some positives which is why I wanted to reflect on my 2020 and what it did for me.
I always have preached to my friends and family that self love is so important. You need to know yourself and when quarantine happened I had a sad realization. I preached this but I realized I truly didn't love myself completely. So I took this time to learn more about myself and actually love the person I am. I bettered myself mentally and physically both which I find important.
It was the best decision I could have ever made. Self love has been such a journey for me, I still need to work on things but I think I always will. But I learned that there is only one of me and one life. I need to live it and not sweat the small stuff. I learned to love all my flaws and insecurities and realize they make me who I am. I realized that expressing my feelings isn't a bad thing. Throughout the years I never liked talking about things that made me upset or felt like I was being too much. But I learned that my feelings are valid and that I am never "too much" to the people I love. I learned to nourish my body and fell in love with working out again. It makes me happy and is a great stress reliever for me. But overall, I learned to say this is me. I've done some awesome things and I'm a pretty strong women.
2020 was not what I expected it to be. I did struggle during during quarantine and so did most of the World. We were in a Global Pandemic and everything sucked for everyone. But like I said we need to find some positives admist the craziness. I hope everyone can look at one positive in their life right now. I understand the holidays wont be the same this year, but we all are so blessed, more than we realize.
