Preparing for 2021: Just One Thing

Here are the questions/prompts to consider as we prepare for 2021, knowing so much hinges on what happens tomorrow and in the next weeks. I am posting it here, and also in a new tab for 2021.

  1.  Look back on 2020. Do not consider anything left undone a failure. You survived. That’s the baseline for 2020.
  • Grieve as needed. There were many losses on many fronts. Visit Grief To Art for a site dedicated to collective mourning, and a list of resources.
  • Communicate your experience of the year, through words, music, visuals, dance. Purge as much of it as you can.
  • Survival as the key component of 2021. That is your main task.
  • Pick one thing you want/need to achieve in 2021. It can be small. It can be simple. But instead of breaking the year down into goals, dreams, and resolutions, pick one thing and craft a plan to achieve it.
  • Daydream. You can rebuild and heal by dreaming about the future you want. Start setting the foundation for more in 2022.
