How are you stepping into the next decade?

December 24, 2019 | by Lore Wainwright


I will admit freely that this time of year is a bit frustrating for me.  Albeit I love the good cheer, the happier sales clerks, the genuine feeling of goodness that is in the air – yet I am left to wonder why.  Why is it now that this sense is heightened? Why, oh why can’t we live in a state of forgiveness and generosity all year long?

Many do.  I know that to be true and witnessed and been on the receiving end of generous hearts all year long. It’s been a tough year for me.  I’ve had to cash in my emotional bank account over and over again. And friends and family have caught me – caught my entire family.  With gentle arms, and sometimes heavy lifting arms, they have come through and are constantly reminding me that this too shall pass and that time will heal.  I’m starting to believe.  And I am hopeful that I translate these lessons into action.  Insert my mom, Dora’s words (Italian accent), “I’m 82 and still I learn.”

And next comes the reflection and predictions, resolutions.  I resolve not to resolve.  Instead I will urge myself to walk into the next decade strong -physically, mentally and in every important relationship I have – including my relationship with the earth.  These are our most fruitful living years – whether you are straddling your 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and God Bless you in your 90’s.  The decade ahead will define your life in a way that is unimaginable today.  Yes, learn from your past, and let it go.

The “Roaring 20’s” are here.  How do you want to step into your next decade?

Decide now what your next decade will be when you cross that threshold. Imagine too, how you want to exit the next decade – that would be 2029. Rely on those around you to commit the same and hold each other accountable – because it’s better together, and easier.

Live fully and show gratitude every single day for the obvious and not so obvious.  You got this.
