It's normal to feel down and frustrated with the pandemic hijacking 2020. But what you do with these emotions can make the difference between you being stuck and you growing as a person. The next time emotions overwhelm you, ride them out, don’t avoid your emotions. Acknowledge them, and look within. Dare to ask yourself questions you try to avoid. Through reflection, we can better understand why we do what we do, and from that, we can create something out of nothing. We can grow ourselves by learning from our experiences and we can move forward in our lives with greater insight and better direction. If 2020 was taken away from you, then take it back. Gain control of your 2020 by making it a year of personal growth instead of stagnation.
