January 11th 2021, I’m present. I decided to take a break from the blog as well as some time off of social media from mid-December till the beginning of this New Year 2021. I’m officially back and I have to say that it was really needed.
I needed some time to think and some time to not think at all. Then some time to think and re-think over again. Time to align my thoughts, set my intentions and dream a little bit.
Where did I “hide” this past half month?
Well, I didn’t actually hide, (but kind of) since I moved my lockdown location to my parents house back in Mexico. I can’t say enough how thankful I am that I was able to visit my family. It took me a while to decide whether to visit my family or not since you know, I had to take a flight. At the same time the risk of catching the virus on my way home. One thing I have to mention is that, I have always been a germaphobe so, you can imagine the protocol I follow when I’m at the airport and when I get to my destination. Ricardo finds it quite ridiculous, but it makes me feel safer. 🤷🏻♀️ Fortunately everything went well. I took a test and it was negative. Now I took one here in San Diego and I’m waiting for the results…
Never too late to talk about this New 2021 Year.
First things first. I hope with all my heart that this year is filled with much health, learning and resilience for you and your loved ones. We all know that 2020 was a hard year for all of us in many different ways. But I hope that this 2021 you are able to bring the best of yourself. Work toward your goals and make the most of every single day of the 2021. Sure thing I’m going to be doing the same.
Thank you 2020
It might sound weird to you but I do have a few things to thank 2020 for. Personally, it was a year of complete learning. It also helped me to raise my level of consciousness, to know myself in a better way, listen and take better care of my body and last but not least to be more grateful of life and in every aspect to it. Starting to work on my purpose and shake off all those fears created by no one but me.
I read this quote the other day…
“It is not external events themselves that cause us distress, but the way which we think about them… It is our attitudes and reactions that give us trouble. We cannot choose our external circumstances, but we can always choose how we respond to them”
I have been reading a lot about spirituality and about stoicism. Maybe it was what my mind and soul needed to find an order to align my thoughts, feelings, reactions and actions. Perhaps I was calling it in a way where I wasn’t paying that much attention, but I received it. The only thing that’s left to say is that I’m ready to give the best of me this 2021.
Happy New Year everyone!
