As we approach the end of 2019, we can’t help but reflect on all of 2019. We think about the goals we set for ourselves, we think about what we have accomplished vs. what we have not accomplished. We think about our growth as individuals and what things we are going to do to make things better for the next year. Some of us may even be so caught up planning for family visits that we haven’t taken the time to reflect on our accomplishments.
I encourage you to do so. Just take a moment and think about how much you have grown these last 10 months and applaud yourself for hanging in there and not giving up.
The number 2020 makes me think of the eye doctor and how "20/20" is perfect vision. As we approach this next decade, I can’t help but think that there is something special about perfect vision and the new year. I have pretty much worn glasses all my life since I got my first pair in Kindergarten. What was interesting to me was that the eye doctor said I had 20/20 vision. My next question was what does that mean? It meant that I can read line 20 on the eye chart from 20 feet away, essentially meaning that I had perfect vision. So why did I need glasses? You may be thinking right now. Well because even though I had perfect vision, I had trouble focusing. Thinking back to that diagnosis makes me think of my life now as an adult. Do I have a problem focusing? At times, yes.
Do you have plans and goals that you have set for yourself but at times feel as though you have lost "focus" on the goal at hand? If so, I urge you to tighten up and finish strong! Set reminders and timers on your phone to keep you on task. Get an accountability partner that will keep you reminded of what you are supposed to be doing. Keep a checklist and check your accomplishments off once you have completed a task.
Join me in planning for better than "perfect vision" in 2020!
