2020 Vision

2020 is half complete. A wacky, weird year does not have to be a wasted year, even though the majority of the last 6 months has seen turmoil in our communities and world. We cannot go to church the same, but I’ve intentionally prayed a lot more than ever before (and our world needs all the prayer it can get). My wife and I cannot go on as many dates, but it doesn’t stop us from planning new meals, spending time together with love question books and shows we enjoy. We’ve turned into home-school teachers instead of shuttling kids from activity to activity. In fact, our kids have thrived this year and we’ve had a ton of precious family time. My gym ritual has been shut down since March, but I’m trending to work out 45% more than last year – my best year since high school. Thanks to saving on commute and prep time, I finished writing a book that has sold hundreds of copies, have been on four podcasts and have read 9 books.

There are always ways to invest in faith, family and friends – it just looks different. Even if you can’t travel, you can tour just about anything in the world, virtually from your living room. It’s a time to learn and invest – in yourself and your passions.

But what’s most important in 2020 is people: reaching out, respecting, listening. I have certainly had my days in 2020 where I’ve woken up not wanting to go or I’ve looked back on the day and felt like I’ve wasted it. But the beauty of life is we can make a decision any day we wish to be different, be better. 2020 is not a wasted year – it’s a wonderful year to figure out what your cocoon should look like so you can emerge an even more complete person in every facet of your life.
