Remember when we were all enthralled by what would be 2020?! A new year, a new decade, a seemingly magical number… 20-20… Oh, the hopes and dreams we had!
And then… it felt like a train wreck real fast.
Things were unbearable when Covid hit. And escalated with everything going on with the racism in this country.
If you’re like me, you may be thinking that this is not the enchanting 2020 you had in mind! Not by a long shot.
But when I was talking to my therapist about this recently, she challenged me into thinking that maybe 2020 IS magical, just in different ways than we imagined.
Maybe the magic is in pushing ourselves as individuals and as a country. In the growth we are all experiencing this year. In learning what really matters.
And maybe, just maybe… the magic is that we will end up with exactly what we need.
One thing is for sure, these last few months have taken a toll on our collective mental health. So make sure you’re taking care of yours.
If you need some extra support right now, my partner Mental Health America can help with things like free screenings, referrals for mental health providers, and information on affordable treatment if you don’t have insurance.
Take good care, friends.
