I took this past weekend to breathe.
Instead of getting a head start on a major blog post, I did what I regretted not doing in 2019, in 2018 and in 2017– I hung out with friends and let the weekend pass me by.
For me, this signified what will hopefully be a seismic change in priorities.
When there's still so much to learn, it's difficult to justify skipping one day, let alone three. But then 2020, which used to seem so far away, rolled in. And with it came the realization that in the same way you learn bit by bit, relationships need to be nurtured deliberately day-by-day.
So with that in mind, my 2020 has been going much better! I'm happy to have let myself take off three days and ecstatic to still have friends to spend that time with. Surprisingly, the world did not end.
How is your 2020 going? Did 2020 bring about any major self-realizations?
