2020 has brought upon us many challenges. But within those challenges, opportunities. The entire world went through tremendous change, many temporary and some permanent. With so many changes this year, here are a few of the things that our families experienced:
While both of our families love to travel, this year we learned to be still, to breathe more, and appreciate the things immediately around us. Fell in love with nature all over again. Took more walks, rediscovered our neighborhoods. Worked on patience. Learned to cut my own hair (although the results are not exactly wife-approved!).
Found my inner chef and learned new cooking techniques (Dalgona-style coffee was among the early favorites). Found new ways to support our neighbors and local small businesses. Spent less, but gave more. Became better at organizing and CLEANED a lot! Stopped going to the gym, and started doing more yoga and mindfulness. Potty trained a toddler (HUGE quality of life improvement!).
Simplicity over novelty. Contentment over desire. Worked on being a better husband, better father, better friend, a better partner to my clients, better human.
Overall, just reevaluated the importance of elements of our lives and became more appreciative of the things that truly matter – our health, our relationships, our purpose.
We are honored to have you as part of the A&S Family and look forward to continuing our purpose in serving you in the coming year and beyond.
Please stay safe and well, and have a Joyous New Year!
P.S. Request – Please send us some of the new things you’ve tried or memorable activities that you had this year. We’d love to hear about them! See below for looking back on some of our year’s moments.
