As I was reflecting on my most recent journey, it dawned on me that many of us may have forgotten the things we love to do after experiencing such a devastating year. 2020 was so traumatizing. Circumstances beyond our control made it hard(er) to cling to what brings us peace. Our coping mechanisms thickened and became as ever-present as the masks we still have to wear.
And so, I wanted to use this platform as a space to give permission for all of us to get back to doing what we love, even if that means taking it day-by-day with baby steps. There may be limitations (depending on what it is that you love). But don’t let that minimize the impact of doing what you love. Find a way around it. Remember the time when...
Don’t be afraid to surrender to happiness. In fact, let 2020 be your motivation to prioritize play, recreation, and amusement. Joy isn’t something to be earned. It is something to engage regularly. As we ponder what it means to get back to a new normal in 2021, let us normalize joy as a way of life going forward.
