Finish Strong

What's it mean to finish strong in a year like 2020? In this end-of-the-year series, we’re asking ...  

Stephanie S.
Oakdale, PA

We’re closing in on the final days of 2020, any unfinished business you’re trying to tackle?
I've never been one to wish a day let alone a year to go by fast. I try to enjoy every moment. Yet I feel 2020 can't go by fast enough. This year has broken my heart and spirits. My end of the year goal is to find my spunk and passion of loving and enjoying life again.

I
n spite of everything that’s unfolded in the past several months, what will you be most grateful for in 2020?
I am most grateful for my husband and son this year. They have both have made all of my dark days of 2020 so much better by making realize what's really important that we had each other and we will be okay.  ️

What’s one buzz word (or phrase) you wish would die with 2020?
“Spill the tea, sis,” makes me cringe. 

If you could choose one word or phrase to guide 2021 what would it be?

“Empathy.” We are all trying the best as we can. We can never have too much empathy in this crazy, uncertain world.

Go back to New Year’s Eve, 2019. If you could travel back in time, what advice would you give yourself?
2020 will break your heart like you've never known. You will see so much ugliness yet you need to stay true to who you are and not let this year make you bitter and ugly. Try to find the silver lining in everything.  

Fast forward one year. What’s one thing you would have liked to achieve? I have a few but the most important to me mentally and physically is continue running and hopefully get faster with age. 😊

If you could sum up 2020 in either a song or movie title, what would it be?
It's the end of the world as we know it. - REM

I’m making a commitment to take care of a few, maybe not all the things on my to-do list but expecting to head into 2021 with a cleaner slate. Taking care of the unnecessary clutter that takes up space in my head. Trying to reassess the things that may not be as important anymore, because things are always changing and that’s OK!
