I am joining Honoré and friends today to share my start with my word for 2020:
If there is no struggle, there is no progress. — Frederick Douglass
I foolishly assumed that my focus of 2019 would just flow seamlessly into my intentional start to January.
Key word there… foolishly.
Because for as brilliant as focus was, my intentional start was, well, rather rocky. Uncomfortable. Awkward. Unsettled.
I even had some moments when I considered picking a different word!
But I persevered and have settled in with my discomfort – sort of. The wisdom from Frederick Douglass has become my mantra:
If there is no struggle, there is no progress.
So, I don’t have much to share this month outside of this messy, unproductive start.
However, I am immersed in the struggle and live in the hope that progress will soon be visible!
Did you pick a word for 2020? How has your start been?
