A Short Guide to Navigating Grief

8 Ways to Make Your 2020 Amazing

8 Ways to Make Your 2020 Amazing

Happy New Year! I hope you woke up this morning feeling refreshed and hopeful. 

How was 2019 for you? If you read the news regularly, you likely feel that the world falls somewhere on a scale between a complete mess and total anarchy.  I find this way of thinking so disheartening. Every year has its good and bad, its sadness and joy, its low moments and bright spots. It is a very personal thing as well — some people may have had a much harder year than others depending on where they live in the world or their current life situation. But whether we claim the year to have been a good or bad one, we can all say we have learned something. Many things, most likely, but at the very least something life-changing if we pay attention. Rather than dismissing the year which when you think about it, was a whole 365 days of your life, why don’t we instead take some time to reflect on our experiences and lessons learned in 2019 and start planning and dreaming for 2020?

Why I'm Putting Fun on My To-Do List

Having more fun isn’t necessarily about riding roller coasters or partying with friends or even going on an epic trip. Having more fun for me is about finding pure joy in the everyday. It is about being able to see our lives through the lens of joy - that despite whatever everyday stresses we are dealing with or challenges we are facing, it is still OK and even good to feel good. And beyond just feeling good, we can see that there is a lot to love about our lives. From that place of joy, it is a lot easier to have fun without having to put it on your list. But for now...here are six ways to put fun on your to-do list.

Follow your dreams…but don't miss out on the dream you're living right now
Us humans, we thrive on progress. We feel alive when growing, achieving and dreaming. But I’ve been reflecting a lot lately as I too focus on these things, that it should never be in exchange for fully enjoying our lives as they are right now. Yes, even with challenges and problems we are facing — personal, professional, financial, health-related, we should and can still be fully present and joyful in our lives right now. Here are five ways to do just that.
