Well, we made it halfway through 2020. Barely? Hardly? With all the grace of a newborn horse on ice? Where are you today on a scale of one to “went bag-o-cats crazy three months ago”?
This post will be short, but I want to share six important words with you today. I know so many of us have been feeling stuck in neutral, waiting for the other shoe to drop, thinking about the what if’s and worst case scenarios. But what if you shifted your perspective and instead ran full speed into this dumpster fire of a year?
Ask yourself, what’s the best that could happen? Stop living for the “what if’s?” and start living for the “WHAT IF’S!” A year from now, do you want to be thinking about the should have’s? Sure, you may fall, but what if you fly?
Take all the discomfort, distress and agony of this year and let it light the fire under your ass that forces you to move. Take a chance, make a change, set a goal. Have a difficult conversation, smile through your mask, say hello to a stranger…
Open your eyes and your heart and let all of it in. Approach each new day, each new face, each new opportunity as if it’s the one that may change your life. What’s the best that could happen?
Maybe 2020 is the year that’s been waiting for you.

I’m a stay at home mom, and I do a little hobby long arm quilting for others, I’ve been active in my quilt guild for over 20 years. Pre-pandemic I was out of my house several days a week. One thing that sheltering in place has done has allowed me to develop better habits of house keeping and meal preparation. These are silver linings in my mind. And it has made me more conscious of real priorities. So the best thing that could happen could be a better more peaceful life.
We are able to move closer to family because of the ability to work remotely. This is one BIG, wonderful thing about this crazy time.
Really needed that kick in the butt today. Thank you!
