2020 may be rough, but dreams don't turn to dust.
We have made it through the first half of the year. But before we continue with the rest of the year and the decade, I have some dreams to share. I started this post in January but, a lot has changed since then...
The pandemic put my life on pause. Some of the previous dreams I had disappeared but, that made space for new ones. Your dreams don't turn to dust, they evolve. Times change, dreams change. I believe 2020 will give us the strength and courage to face the rest of the decade with a brave face. We, I, will be stronger in the face of adversity...Nonetheless, I have decided to dream anyway because dreams can be the hope that carries us through these dark days. Below I have made a list of my dreams for the decade.

I know some of these are kinda silly, but
2020 has been one for the record books. Life as we had known it has changed. I don't want to say we live in a "new normal" because nothing about what we're doing is normal. Just because times are hard, doesn't mean you have to let go of the dreams you have.
