Revisiting My Word Of 2020

My word for 2020 is acceptance – and boy, have I really had to put that to use.

I like to think back to my word every once in a while and reflect on how I’ve been doing. I’ve had to accept a lot this year. I think we can all agree that 2020 pretty much sucks and we’ve gone through a lot.

I wanted to be able to accept where I am this year, accept happiness. But I haven’t gotten a lot of opportunities to do that because everything is changing. I wanted to be happy in my job, in my home, in my relationship – but now I don’t have a job and we’re moving and we have to adapt.

I’ve accepted it all better than I normally would. When I got the HR email about a phone call later in the day, I knew I was getting laid off and I accepted it. I started moving my files over to the shared drive. And then I accepted this meant we’d have to move. I put it off for a while, resulting in us not really having a place to live, but I did put a plan together for the meantime.

And initially I wanted to take a break and not job search right away, but my anxiety didn’t really let that happen. I accepted that it was time to search and now, two months in, I’ve sort of accepted that it might be a while before I get a job.

All in all, I think I’ve been doing an okay job, but writing this has made me realize I can definitely do better.

  1. Having the right mindset can absolutely shift everything in your life too! Optimism can do so much more for us than we even know, like attract abundance and opportunity. You got this girl, keep your head up!

    Accept that you’re crushing it!
    With love,

  2. Rosie, I think everyone’s word for the year is acceptance.
    Yes, 2020 definitely has been a memorable one but I believe we will look back at this in the future as the moment we all came to find ourselves.

  3. There are few things under our full control and work is one of those unpredictabilities. We have to accept all sorts of changes during the pandemic and find new routines but also opportunities. Good luck with the job search.
