If you’ve been a reader here for any amount of time, you’ll know that my years aren’t measured by resolutions, but rather by themes I take it to it. Most of the themes emerge after reflection on the previous year. That has left me feeling very uneasy about what lies ahead.
2020 is going to be wild and uncomfortable.
Over the last year, there has been a lot of growth and change for me professionally that has left me a different person. The more I reflect, the more 2020 means less about doing new things and more about leaving things that haven’t served me well behind. If 2019 was “Chiseling”, then 2020 is going to be “Sanding and Polish”.
Unlike all the prior years where there was more uncertainty about who or what I would be or be doing for the year to come, this one comes with a settled knowing to it. Of what I can keep, what I will rearrange, what I will make room for whether more or less. There’s a part of me that is somewhat saddened by it. The explanation of that feeling will be another entry.
In the meantime, I hope your holiday has been wonderful and that your support systems to get through them or celebrate them have been strong. I’ll see you all in 2020 with what will likely be a multi-part update on where the heck I’ve been.
