Many of us are ready to breathe a huge sigh of relief that 2020 is nearly over...with hopes that 2021 will bring more stability in our economy, health to our nation and unity around the world. Many abhorred 2020 and can’t wait to move on.
When I look back on 2020, I am deeply saddened by some of the things that happened, but I am also deeply moved by many. My family has a commitment to create the life of our dreams no matter what, however, and although 2020 was tumultuous, we took on the most amazing adventure ever this year. We moved across the country from California to North Carolina where we were able to get a small farm, our own clean well water (that we can drink from the tap!), barns and pastures near the artsy and exciting city of Asheville. We did this not just to move away from the draconian vaccine laws and politics of California, but also to move to a much more affordable place where we can fulfill our dream of being able to grow food and live in nature that our children can interact with...build forts, rope swings, run around with animals, and plant fruit trees. We are having the time of our lives!
2020 was a year of really focusing on what really matters to us. For most of us that is health, family, freedom, and prosperity. 2021 may not bring us the stability, health, and just policies we crave. The question is who will you, we, choose to be in the face of that adversity?
Will you, we, be courageous, compassionate, and choose to make a contribution to others? Adventurous, creative, or kind? What would make a difference for you and your family?
Will you, will we, create the lives that we want anyway, regardless of the circumstances around us? I would assert that you can, we can, no matter what. It’s not easy, changes may need to be made, hard work may be involved, but we can.
As the New Year approaches we at Moms Across America urge you to focus on what really matters to you. Get clear about those two or three goals, and who YOU are taking on being about them...and go forth with confidence and clarity that no matter what, that is who you will be. When we mothers and supporters of health and freedom focus on creating the world we want, we are unstoppable.
Together we can have 2021 be a breakthrough year for health and freedom!
With Joy and Gratitude,
