People of Charlotte, allow me to reintroduce you to my friend, storyteller, and new mom, Vivian Page! Vivian and I were talking about the positive side of 2020 and below, she shares her story. Interested in sharing a positive story from 2020? Please reach out to Vivian or me to share!
Now let's learn what Vivian has to share!
What did you love about the year 2020?
Becoming a Mom was the best thing that happened to me in 2020! Of all years to be pregnant and give birth, I did it in the year of a pandemic and historically, one of the most unpredictable years of our time!
Bringing Life into this world has by far superceded everything that has not gone the way I expected. And I can honestly say that 2020 hasn't been a bad year for me. Inconvenient, yes, but bad, no. There have been far greater happier moments for me than sad, and I'm joyful because I have had my husband by my side to grow with, laugh at all the crazy moments, and adjust to all of life's changes. This year has taught me to enjoy all the moments and find joy in the simplest things. It is when we are moving constantly and consumed with the hustle and bustle of life that we miss the importance of the things right in front of us.
