Today is the first day of a new year. And a new beginning.
Last year was insane for so many. And I’ll admit, brutal for me at times even when I didn’t show it.
As a self employed female business owner and Doctor, I was pushed out of my comfort zone countless times to learn more about telemedicine and online marketing than I ever anticipated. The feeling of uncertainty and insecurity was beyond challenging. .
The feelings of isolation, loneliness, disconnection, depressed mood (and lots of meltdowns!) were unbearable.
What kept me looking and moving forward?
My inherent tenacity, my grit, my perseverance, my resiliency, my courage, my strength, my determination, my belief, my adaptability and I might also add my stubbornness at not wanting to give up and quit.
Guess what also kept me going?
That sweet, feisty, loving, destructive, troublesome, gorgeous and strong as hell German Shepherd puppy you see right beside me.
My Girl Penelope is a blessing, a gift, a loyal companion and an Angel sent to me during one of the toughest years I’ve experienced.
I couldn’t imagine spending the first day of this new year and new beginning with anyone else but her.
Wishing all of you an abundance of blessings in this BETTER New Year ahead! 🙏
