2020 is half over. There are a lot of reasons to be happy about that – it’s been an odd and unsettling year thus far, to say the least. I think most of us are already looking toward putting on a party hat and kissing 2020 goodbye, and toasting in a new year – hopefully one with less fear, anxiety, anger, confusion, and murder hornets.
The midpoint of the year is the perfect time to do a little goal check. We have six months left, so if we buckle down and commit, almost anything is still possible. But first, we need to make sure we are on the right path.
Look back at your journal or your vision board or wherever you put your 2020 goals or your New Years Resolutions. Make sure you still want to achieve them! Time and circumstances may have changed your idea of what is worthy of your time, or even possible. Relationships may have taken priority over material things; a career change may be more appealing (or necessary) than climbing the ladder at the job you had pre-COVID.
Stop and take the time to reevaluate. Listen to your intuition. What is important to you now? If you need to revise your goals, do it and do it with intention. Make peace with the fact that this is a different kind of year; the world has changed in the past few months, and so have you.
We have six months left in 2020; despite the challenges, we can still make something beautiful out of it.
