After a holiday break with my little family, I am so excited to be back here at Dice Mom to continue our journey in parenthood, geekiness, and nerddom.
2020… Well, THAT happened.
We’ve been saying for so long, “I can’t wait for this year to be over!!” And, now that the chiming of the midnight bell is upon us… one question seems to be hanging in the cold, winter air… what are we supposed to do?
The pandemic is still here, for now. But that doesn’t mean we have to let allllll of the negativity of 2020 bleed into our new year. The vaccine roll out is happening, the light is THERE. Right at the end of this twisted sewer tunnel we are calling life right now.
So… now what?
January 1st is that special day of the year where you (in gamer terms) get the chance to reset, respec, and respawn. We can make goals. Think about what we want to be. What we want to bring with us, and what we want to leave behind.
After this hell scape of a year, how refreshing is that?!
So, for the month of January, our theme will be “Respawn Point!” We will be discussing some of my 2021 goals, and review some nerdy gadgets, gizmos, and games that I plan to use on my journey! Some goals are pretty cliche, others are more personal, but (most importantly) they are all attainable! Take a look! Maybe you will be inspired to get started on your own list today!
- Drink more water.
- Exercise every day.
- Start journaling.
And while we’re at it…
- Get more sleep.
- Give myself grace.
- Feel beautiful.
- Do more of the crafts I love.
- Hug my family more.
- 100 Blog posts!
- Never take the things we lost during COVID for granted again.
That last one is weighing the heaviest on me as I sit here on this chilly December afternoon.
Going out to eat. Hugging my grandma. Sending my daughter to school. Date nights. Going to the gym. Playing DnD or boardgames with friends around a table. Taking a vacation. Hanging out with my family on Christmas… It is all the more precious now.
So lets all take a deep breath and take the plunge into 2021 together! You may not be feeling motivated to join in with me just yet. And that is okay! Hopefully my “Respawn Point” series this month will inspire you to enter the new year healthier: mentally, emotionally, and physically. Whatever that looks like for you. We will probably have a few screw ups, complete fails, and some laughs along the way, but whatever happens, its sure to be an adventure!
