I mean, don’t get me wrong, I could definitely use ALL the bad words to describe 2020 as well, but despite it all, it truly has been a year of blessing and clarity of purpose. I took stock of the goals I made at the beginning of the year (I don’t do resolutions anymore) and I’m pretty amazed by everything I managed to achieve despite 2020: • I lost 55.4 lbs (aka the rest of the baby weight…
