2020 Vision

four-season landscapeToday I am reflecting on all I have experienced during this year, giving thanks for the lessons learned in the journey, and excited for the clarity the New Year promises. The car satellite radio is broadcasting a song from almost fifty years ago. With 2020 nearing, it seems fitting that the song playing is by a guy named Johnny Nash that goes:


“I can see clearly now the rain is gone

I can see all obstacles in my way

Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind

It’s going to be a bright, bright

Bright, bright sunshiny day.


I can make it now the pain is gone

All of the bad feelings have disappeared

Here is that rainbow I’ve been praying for

It’s going to be a bright, bright

Bright, bright sunshiny day.


Look all around, there’s nothing but blue skies

Look straight ahead, there’s nothing but blue skies.”


After all that time, the words are still relevant. It is indeed a bright, sunshiny day with crisp blue skies. It is a perfect day to adjust my focus! The words speak to positive attitude, overcoming negativity and obstacles, reevaluating one’s state of being, accepting what is and moving forward with purpose and deliberateness. What a great way to start preparing myself for a new year.

My dad once told me that it is a wasted day if you don’t learn something new. While making mental notes as I ease on down the road, I will take a few moments after I park to jot them down for reflection later this evening. I love to focus on new knowledge and insight before heading to bed. Staying aware and present in the moment helps me live with intention in all areas of my life.

The new 2020 Vision eight-week chapter program that was included in your chapter mailing and in TOPS News is a great tool for focusing on your weight loss journey! My chapter intends to use these weeks to laser in on making this the Year of the Healthy Member. Surely each of us can commit to such a positive start and make that effort to help and support each other. Visions of KOPS goals reached are dancing in my head as I contemplate the journey unfolding before us each day if we are willing to do the work to turn our wishes and dreams into realities. I can see clearly now that 2020 will be a magnificent year!

I Care, Barb
