2020 Visions

Waiting on the New Year to come in

Goals are hard to set and I’m hesitant to share. What if I don’t meet them? What if I set the bar to high and fail? But…(here comes the cliché) what if I soar?? What if I meet all my goals and have the best year yet? 2020 brings a deployment/rotation conversation a few big separations. I made some big mistakes in most areas of my life but I figured out where the changes need to be made. My goals are simple and they are here so at the end of this year when I’m in the thick of solo parenting and looking back at this year I’ll have a record of how awesome I can be and that will carry me into 2021 with confidence (there I said it so it will be so).
