My Top 5 Lessons of 2021

It’s the end of 2021. Hallelujah. What a crazy year it has been. In some ways, it has been one of the toughest ones I can remember. But, in other ways, there have been several blessings this year as well. Through the good and the “bad,” there have been some great lessons learned & reinforced. 

In today’s episode, I go deep and share 5 thoughts & lessons with you from 2021. I think you are going to resonate with a few of them. And they will give you some more insight into where my mind is at, why I’m really excited for 2022, and some of the big things coming up in the new year.

I’d love to hear from you. What is one lesson you learned in 2021?
