Will You Embrace the Possibilities of 2021?


happy-new-yearCan you believe it?! 2020 is drawing to a close.

Regardless of what you’ve encountered this year, I imagine you too are ready for 2021 to make its appearance. 

I had set five professional goals for 2020, and I fell way short on all of them, except one—the goal to post a blog every day of the year. I did it!

I could be super discouraged about the four goals I didn’t achieve, but instead I’m going to feel grateful for the one I did. Interestingly, for 2021, I’m going to go after the four goals I didn’t make happen in 2020.

If you’ve followed me for awhile, you know how enthused I am when a new year rolls around. Absolutely. Love. It. For me, a new year feels like a super-sized version of the fresh mercies God promises each day. As 2021 is about to roll in, I am especially optimistic, personally and professionally. I know it’s not good to wish time away, but I am so ready for 2021.

How about you? Will you embrace the possibilities of 2021? Even if you aren’t keen on setting goals or resolutions, I encourage you to at least reflect some about 2021. Think about the possibilities—and then set about making them a reality!

    You know me: I love New Year too! All that potential just waiting to be realized. That said, I’m also a natural pessimist who recognizes that not all of my goals will happen. So I often land where you do—determined to be content about goals reached while giving myself grace for goals postponed. Wishing you and yours a healthy, peaceful 2021…and all the best to your marvelous ministry!

    Hi, Julie. I’ve recently started reading your blog and found it helpful. I’m impressed that you posted every single day of 2020, but so far it looks like you have not posted at all in 2021. Am I somehow looking in the wrong place? Or are you taking a break? (If so, maybe best to let people know that, and when you plan to return.) Thanks!

    @Some Guy… Thank you so much for reaching out. You have come to the right place, and unfortunately I haven’t blogged yet in 2021. We have had two family deaths in one month, and like the rest of the world, still juggling the upheaval cause by the pandemic. But good news! I will be back in gear here pretty soon, bringing you and other readers great content. THANK YOU for your kind words. Means the world to me!

    Oh, Julie, I am so sorry. What an awful situation. Blogging must be the last thing on your mind at the moment. Take the time you need, and return when doing this feels good again. Every blessing!
