"Anyone can see the adversity in a difficult situation, but it takes a stronger person to see the opportunity."
- Drew Brees
It's been a year. Some of has faced our fair share of adversity. Some of us have seen darker times than others. Some of us have experienced dark times alone, sheltered from the world around us.
This year that we have face certainly was unique. As I look back on the year, I want to take this opportunity to reflect and pause, give thanks to God for Health. If you follow me on Instagram, you know how deeply I mean that as my family and I have been through a lot in recent years, facing similar sickness to the pandemic we are facing today.
Although having an at-home business was the norm to me before this year, the anxiety and fear that came with our surroundings were not. Facing these fears and learning how to give myself some time truly is something I am still learning today. I feel like each of us is facing this struggle as well this year.
With the struggles, I see many triumphs and blessings when I look back. Just this year, in February, I pivoted my business after being laid off during the pandemic. From then on, I have supported my family and do what I am passionate about, assisting designers.
It is truly amazing to me to think about how far we have come since February. I remember the week my husband and I both got laid off and thought, " what are we going to do." We are truly blessed. I hope I never take it for granted.
