Welcome to the Roaring 20’s 2.0

I’m back! I’ll go ahead and use that phrase loosely seeing how I didn’t actually go anywhere.

It’s 2020 and a leap year. So many people with high hopes for this fresh new decade I now call The Roaring 20’s 2.0. Everywhere you look people are ready to make this year their year. This is the year for new attitudes, new mantras, self care, and mental health care.

Time to lace up the work boots, y’all! We’ve got some ground to cover.

So why am I so enthused?? Well, I think 2019 was basically 365 days of epiphanies. I came to realize so many things about myself and the simple fact that I hold my own destiny in my hands. I think that was a realization many of us had.

We don’t have to stay complacent in the same place forever.

For example, I became a SAHM (Stay At Home Mom) in February 2018 and while this time has been productive, a lesson I learned was I enjoy having a job. I also love being home with my daughter. So… I got a job at her Pre-school. It’s the best of both worlds and I love it! I had a realization and I actively worked towards a goal that works for everybody. I’m out of the house and around other adults, my {small} income is being tucked away for something AWESOME, I still get to see my sweet girl, and she’s having fun at school. It works… it works because I got off my butt and did something.

A long long time ago I read something that resonated with me. I came across a friends MySpace (yes… MySpace) and he had this quote posted,

I love it. I loved it in 2007 and I love it now. I have decided to make it my mantra for the year, or quite possibly the rest of my life. I have things to do, things to write and share, places to go, and goals to crush. None of that will happen if I’m not running when that sun comes up.

So, bring it on 2020. Let’s do this.
