‘Tis the season of planning and to remember to be grateful. Well, as much as we can this year anyway!!!
I have always been a planner. This year has thrown me for a loop. All the uncertainties that we faced in 2020 were not only terrifying but also unpredictable, and that is something I genuinely struggle with.
I’ve always been a busy body looking for my next adventure. Whether it was a family trip, a personal growth experience, or planning what I’m going to prep for dinner all week. I was always 14 steps ahead, and I was proud of that part of myself. This past year has forced me to slow the heck down. And now that I can honestly look back on the last few months (or years has it been years??!) I am grateful for it.
I believe there is always a silver lining if you can get out of your head long enough to notice. I was taking time to think about all the aspects of my life (what’s left of it anyway; I have a personal goal of hitting at least 92 years of age) and take a few deep breaths to stay present in the moment. I have to remind myself to do this often because I’m not quite built that way, but it’s worth the reminder.
Because I was forced to not think about what’s coming next, it has allowed me to think about the things that really matter to me. This alone helped me be still for more than a minute.

WHAT I LEARNED:
I’ve learned that it’s ok to ask for help or ask for someone to listen. And those in my life who care have shown up, and I’m so grateful for them.
If it wasn’t for this year and its events, I don’t know if I would have had the time to devote to this new business, which is turning out to be the new love of my life, and I’m grateful for that too. I love how Pretty Witty POP mirrors Kristi’s (The other fantastic half of Pretty Witty POP) and my life goals, and we hope we are doing that for you too.
Treating yourself and the world around you with wit and whimsy is something we not only preach but actually practice this ourselves. It is so important!!! You are important!!! Your health and wellbeing truly mean so much to us. So with all that said, if the holiday season doesn’t go like planned this year, we promise it will be ok; we will get through it and know that Pretty Witty POP is here for you all the way.
Thank you to all of you who have followed Pretty Witty POPs journey so far, and we hope we have given you a little something to be grateful for as well.
