Is 2021 just the sequel of 2020? Or the remix? I choose not to think so, and I hope you don’t either. This year hasn’t started out exactly as planned (does it ever really?), but you have to keep pushing.
2021 especially has already taken a specific turn for me, just about two months in, putting me in certain situations, forcing me to learn/remember some lessons, while also confusing the crap out of me moving forward.
Look, let me just be honest here; I was guilty, like a lot of people, of being stuck in a comfort zone and not necessarily being preoccupied with realizing how dangerous being stuck in one can be for the long term.
Without going into too much detail, 2021 threw me a curve ball and snatched my comfort zone from under my legs, leaving me with no safety net. While uncomfortable (duh), I obviously can’t help but see it as a sign. I think I don’t have a choice but to see it as a sign.
The sign is this: Because I wasn’t necessarily shaking things up, life took care of it for me regardless of whether I was ready or not, and now I have to deal with it. Now, this can be where I crumble completely, or I it can be an opportunity for “something else.”
We’ll see how it turns out. How is 2021 treating you so far?
