That’s right. You heard me correctly. Our setbacks SERVE us.
Those hurdles we had to overcome are often the boost that we need to reach the next level. Or they make us look at things differently and take a different approach. How is 2020 going to impact you and the next coming months in 2021?
Just before this extraordinary year began, I was busy planning my wedding which was to occur at the end of June. I had my last dress fitting in Montreal and was celebrating with my sister and brother and Fiancé over lunch. We were giggling about the upcoming day and details around it. A couple of weeks later, just as our invitations were ready to be mailed out, the Corona Virus was upon us and the world came to a sudden halt.
In the end, we were very fortunate, and we were able to get married although my brother and sister and other friends and family were not able to attend. Despite this, we still pulled off an intimate little gathering at the venue of our choice in what turned out to be a magical day.
Sure, it looked different from what we had planned. Sure, we had to make adjustments and some tough choices. AND we readjusted our thinking to fit our new reality, and in so doing, we had a wonderful day we will never forget.
