What can we look forward to? How can we plan for a brighter future?

2020 has taught me many things – both as a parent and an individual.

I am NOT running into 2021 with the “Up and At ‘em” approach. I am taking it slowly and seeing how this year is going to unravel.

I share my top 15 lessons that I have learned from 2020.
