2020 - Living Intentionally

Happy New Year my friend!  2020 Adventures Await!

I remember the New Year’s Eve I celebrated when 1999 turned into 2000.  There was wide-spread fear about “Y2K” and how it would affect our life in the computer-age and the world. People were fearful. My eccentric dad bought copious amounts of “vasoline” .......don’t ask me why, but his supply today is still abundant! Lol  

Isn’t it amusing to think how sometimes we can be fearful of the future and the unknown?  Looking back from 1999 to 2019  was a decade of so many personal losses in my life and from some of those losses came amazing new gains where I was forced to show up for myself. And to chart new territories in waters that I had never been in before. And today, I feel like I have arrived in my safe harbor.

For 2020 and the decade will be with the focus on  being “Intentional”.  I figure that will cover all areas of this girl’s life that need tweaking.  One of the things I will work on is reaching out to others more and making delightful memories.  Today, I meet a good friend for coffee to catch up and then later this afternoon, I’m headed to meet another friend for a movie and to celebrate her birthday.  This same friend said to me a couple weeks ago that she wanted to set a time and date where we got together once a month as she came away from our time together refreshed. If that isn’t the ultimate compliment, I don’t know what is.  

I went to a website ( that suggested you intentionally end the year with these questions, which I am sharing with you (below) that provide some pondering.   Sometimes looking back at the past helps you set your course for where you want to go. Or at least it does for me. 

And I wish you all the best for 2020 and beyond! I hope as you chart your course for the year ahead, that life will unfold in ways that will amaze, delight and create new pathways for growth and success.  A toast to living Intentionally!   All my best, Gayle
