Hi lovely ones, welcome to the last episode of Hello, Rebecca Ray for 2020. I’m so grateful that you’ve been here with me for this podcast during this year, it’s been a year hasn’t it? I am in a place where I feel like on some levels this year has really brought my values to the surface.
It’s made me stop and think more than any other year about what’s truly important in life and about who I love and how I love them about how I’m showing up for you, and for my family and for my friends.
And it’s really made me stop and think about the energy and my personal resources like my time and my love and my psychological energy and where I’m putting those things.
If I’m directing those things in a way that’s truly meaningful to me. You know, this year has broken my heart so many times over, and I’m sure it’s done the same for you as well. All you need to do is just scroll the internet to see so many horrific things happening this year, we’ve had the pandemic, there has been multiple traumas.
We’ve lost many significant people in the world. And yet, here we are, we’ve made it through and somehow we need to make sense of it all. And I just want to say that it’s okay if you can’t make sense of it right now.
That’s okay. Don’t rush it. There’s no pressure on you to come out of this year with your emotional ducks in a row. And in fact, I don’t even know whether that’s possible.
I think if anything if you’re in a place like me, and you’re just reflecting on your values, and what’s truly important to you in life, that’s possibly the most meaningful thing you can do right now.
It’s okay, it just looks like a whirlwind. And your head is still back in March processing at all. And you haven’t quite caught up to the fact that it’s December 2020.
I’m sending you so much love and courage, especially for those of you whose health has been impacted by the pandemic or for those of you who have had loved ones who have been impacted by Coronavirus.
And for those of you who have lost income, lost work lost jobs, senior businesses not come out of this very well at all.
And for those of you who have simply stopped and just had to direct all your energy into surviving, I see you. And I’m with you. And I hope that 2021 is full of abundance for all of us, emotionally. And practically.
What I want to leave you within this episode is some questions for reflection. And I asked myself these questions at the end of every year to help me focus my thoughts and to also offer myself compassion and empathy and acknowledgement for everything that I’ve done in the year.
And I’m hoping that these questions might be helpful for you as well. Because despite the year that we’ve had the upside-down year that we’ve had, and I’m betting that you have done remarkable things this year, and I want you to give yourself credit for them.
So I’m gonna ask you these questions. And as I do, I’m going to leave a little bit of space for you to answer them, reflect on them and answer them after I ask them.
- What challenges did you overcome this year? You might say that the answer to that is fairly obvious. Beck Hello, there’s been a pandemic. But I want you to think for you individually
- What’s the major challenge or challenges that you’ve overcome this year?
