2020 - Best Year of My Life! | What I Know Now 12

I can say without a doubt that 2020 has been the absolute best year of my life! I've learned so much, and my motivation to really kick off my career and personal well being to new levels!

One of the biggest changes this year was my weight-loss! I am very thankful that I was able to find and follow the weight-loss plan that I did. It was significantly easier than I expected, and I lost nearly 100 pounds in 7 months! I'm not quite at my goal weight, but I will be pushing for that before the year concludes.

Another big area in my life. I am very grateful for is my work. During the midst of Covid, my boss decided to hire me on and had to jump through some legal hoops to do so. I've been very blessed to have him as my boss/mentor, and he's taken me under his wing in many ways, teaching and challenging me with many projects I wouldn't see for years at other shops!

I've made the most life changes this year and had so many opportunities to serve, love, and grow. I would almost say more than all my previous years combined! Though many have struggled during this time with work and uncertain futures, I was able to rise above the feeling of "it doesn't matter, it's Covid, I can give myself some leeway" and taking advantage of the opportunities given. I'm not saying this to boast, but to encourage those struggling with the feeling of, I can wait, to say no. Now is the most important time for everything; your life is defined by your now. Sitting on your phone for just one more hour is not going to be good for your long term health and happiness!
