2020 was a pretty crappy year for most people. Mine started
out really hard having to leave my boys in Maryland because of my separation.
Hardest Week Of My Life January 7,2020
I had a plan though. A plan to see them. A plan to fly them to Utah for EJS. A plan to fly home to visit. So many visits planned. Then the pandemic hit and the world went topsy turvy.
I did go back to the East Coast in January. That was a huge mistake. It was too much for me to go to the home I built for my family only to be a guest. I had a mini meltdown.
Life in 2020 was difficult and crappy for a lot of folks. But enough of the negative. I want to remember all the good that came of 2020.
Reflections of 2020
My adventure partner and best friend, Neil, taught me some great life lessons this past year.
Patience & Flexibility & Positivity
Patience to enjoy the journey not worry about the desitination. Flexibility to change course at a moments notice. Positivity to look at the good of life not the bad.
I know 2020 was a bad year for lots of people, myself included. There were some low times for me. As I look back, I am going to remember the good times, and my great accomplishments.
I wheeled the Rubicon Trail with my two sons! The Rubicon Trail was a Bucket List item from the first year I had my Jeep.
Off Roading was always a hard one for me because no one in my family would go with me. So who would have ever expected my two boys would be on the trail with me. It was an amazing experience to share with them.
It was awesome to have them their with me. I have Neil to thank for that as he encouraged them to join us. You can read all about the adventure by clicking on the Rubicon Trail link under More Jeep Momma on the right side of my Blog.
I attended my
first ever Easter Jeep Safari, even though it was cancelled, we still wheeled
many trails. It was very eery being the only Jeepers in Moab. However, we made the most of it.
Neil and I had our first Fan Ride. We overlanded the
Mojave Desert with some amazing Jeep friends.
Neil, Mike and I wheeled some of the toughest
trails in the
country in Kingman, AZ with a great Jeep Group.
Neil and I rescued and rebuilt many Jeeps.
This past year I
have added so many great Jeep friends to my life. At the same
time I figured out who all those toxic friends were in my life and let them go.
I spent some amazing healing moments with my niece on the gulf coast of Texas.
My relationship with my two sons has grown beyond what I have ever imagined. I shot my first ever handgun and have to say I have pretty good aim.
I have gained grit & fortitude & so much confidence.
So... Take a Moment and Find the Positive for Yourself From This Past Year.
