2019 has been the most challenging year of my life, but I’ve learned so much. I started the year with plans that 2019 would be a pivotal year for me. I felt like it was a year that would change my life. I thought that I’d be living my absolute best life by the end of 2019. I’d lined up a great job and was hitting my stride with my career, after many years. My son was doing well, and things were generally looking good. I thought for sure that it would be my year.

It was indeed a year of change and a pivotal year for me, but not in the way that I thought. Yes, I was enjoying all of those things, and it was great. However, I had a family tragedy that knocked the wind out of me and ripped away from the entire foundation in which I’d built my life.

So here I am now at the end of one of the toughest years of my life, which is not ending as I thought it would at all. Instead of viewing the year as a failure, I am choosing to use it as an opportunity to view life differently by tackling some of life’s challenges.

The biggest challenge that I will be conquering is stepping out of my comfort zone. The family tragedy made me realize many things. One of them is, life is very short, and we should embrace as much of it as we possibly can. So, that’s what I am going to do for the next fifty years.

I will continue to be a responsible person, but I will open my life up to experiencing more things, loving more people, and overall embracing more life. My goal is to never be on my death bed with regrets about things, people, and life I didn’t experience to it’s fullest.

I challenge you to do the same.
