I attended a Word of the Year Workshop this weekend. It was absolutely time well spent. There was “homework” that needed to be done prior to the workshop which included reflection on the past year. As I worked through that part of the reflection homework, I came to understand that 2019 was the year of resilience for me …. both personally and professionally.Building resilience has been a part of my journey throughout my life. I’m not sure why that is but I have always sought solutions to adversity; trauma; tragedy and setbacks. I have learned over time to build a village of support for myself as “life happens” ….. books, therapists, coaches, mentors, family, colleagues, friends …. calling on the village partnerships as I need them and their “expertise”
I have learned much from this past year:
I have also come to accept some choices
I have come to the realization that the loss of Mark will always be with me – it is a void in my life today and my life of tomorrow (our future). I know that grief will always be a part of my journey and how I manage that is my responsibility.
I have also come to a place where I realize I can … I want to … and I am excited about creating a new life – personally and professionally.
2019 was a year of practiced resilience. 2020 will be a year of creation.
