My 2020 in a Nutshell

Teacher certification. Collaborating. Misunderstandings. Severed connections.

A birthday at the top of a global pandemic. Lockdowns. Social Distancing. No work. New creative ideas.

Diagnoses. A surgery. New medications. Shadow work. Heartbreak. Therapy.

Brink of divorce. Losing friends. Death of family. New job. New friends. New opportunities. Reconnections.

Yoga. Self Care. Bodywork. Healing retreats. Back slides. Wellness events. Forgetting face masks in the car. Vaccine debates.

Car wreck. Whiplash. More drugs. More expenses. Long lines. Quick recovery.

Black lives. All lives. My life. Political parties. Conspiracies. Protests. Anxiety. Depression. Loneliness. Addictions. Agendas.

Existential crises. Venting sessions. Fear. Epiphanies. Growth. Gratitude.

A Note To Self for 2020

Dear Self,

You have come quite a ways – one decade after another. There have been plenty ups; all to remind me of the beauty in the world. There have been plenty of downs, all to strengthen me for the better. I am grateful for each hill and every valley.

Going forward, there is one main thing I expect and that is for us to becoming the closest we’ve ever been. I wish there to be no boundaries between us. No disconnects. No blending in at your expense. Like all relationships, I’m sure it will take time for us to reach the next levels just as it has taken time for us to arrive where we are today. I will grant you the necessary space to develop freely with compassion.

We both know that healing is spiral, time isn’t linear and life does not occur in a vacuum, therefore, patience and discipline is key. Continue to gain knowledge not just to know but to improve and to share for the knowing of others so that they may be supported on their journeys just as others have directly or indirectly supported you.

I know that you will always have purpose, even if in some moments that it is just to love and/or be loved. I recognize the grandiosity of your dreams and desires but remember that you save the world each day that you display kindness, share a positive or enlightening thought and take care of yourself in all the ways needed. You are a part of the world and therefore the world is you; as are we all.

Despite those that may cross your path and challenge you in the worst of ways, you are strong. Just recall that those people are also living in their momentary purpose and they are in your life at that time for a reason. Experience them but do not let their harshness linger on your soul and taint how you radiate who you are.

Lastly, never forget that you are divine. Even in your sadness, your anger and in the midst of your setbacks, you are magical being with the power to turn things around with the proper work. And, it is my hope that we will be so intertwined that every desire reveals itself to be pure and that every positive manifestation proves to be effortless.

I love you very much, Self. Continue to do great things.

Mote it be. Aṣẹ.
