Finishing 2020

 It's been a long few months.   2020 has been a year that none of us expected and none of us could have been prepared for.  For some, it's been a year of learning and growth through challenges.  For others, it's been nothing but a nightmare that they can't seem to wake up from.  I know that I have personally had some days that were hard to get through, but all I can do is my best.  And, on those days, that is enough.   It would be easy to write off 2020 as a loss and just coast and hide out for the rest of the year.  If that's what you want to do, that's OK.  We are all doing what we need to do to get through the mess that 2020 has been.  But, I think it's important to remember that we still have almost a quarter of the year left.  As daunting as that seems, it opens up so many possibilities!  I don't have any grand plans for finishing out this year, but I have decided to use the next few months to focus on things that I can do to help myself grow.  I wa
