Highs and Lows

Friday, January 01, 2021

The highs and lows of my 2020.


1. Health – no one in my immediate family has suffered with Covid-19!
2. Retirement – I retired on August 1st – one year early!
3. Goal – I exceeded my goal to walk an average of 5 miles every day. I walked 2,044.25
4. Travel – rented a beach house in Manzanita, OR (to socially distance) and enjoyed the
ocean and excellent mountain hikes!
5. Joy – my husband – he brings joy to my life every day.


1. Family – I desperately miss seeing my Mom and family.
2. Weight – I gained 7 pounds.
3. Mental – I feel more anxiety, depression and anger due to the stress of 2020.
4. Travel – we had to postpone our trip to the U.K. to complete the Coast-to-Coast walk.
5. Food – I am so tired of cooking, cooking, cooking.

2021 is here. It will have its’ own highs and lows, but it also brings so much hope. I believe it will be a good year.

    Love the idea of listing your highs and lows of 2020! The UK coast to coast walk sounds wonderful.
    I too am hopeful that 2021 will be a good year. Hopefully that walk can be done this year!

    I'm so glad you're able to see the positives that 2020 DID hold. You did a terrific job on your goals, and it's wonderful that you were able to get away for mountain hikes and ocean breezes in spite of the pandemic! I have to say, 2020 taught me to be flexible on my goals. I finally had to accept what the year was going to look like and adjust my expectations and my goals; once I did that I was able to face the days with a better attitude. Still, here's to 2021 allowing us to do many of the things we had to postpone in 2020!

    emoticon emoticon emoticon on meeting your walking goals and on the 2020 list of Highs. You are right that every year has highs and lows. There is hope that maybe some of the lows can be changed in 2021 to highs. emoticon emoticon emoticon
