The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Nov. 28/2020 – Opt

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “opt.” Use it as a word or find a word with “opt” in it and base your post on that. Have fun!

If there was a button to press, to opt out of 2020, would you?

Sitting the face of lockdown 2.0, about to head into tier 3 (the strictest of restrictions) for another couple of weeks, it would be easy to adopt the stance that I have hated every moment of this year.

It’s been tough. True.

But would I choose to erase it?


2020 has been momentous for me, for a few reasons.

  • #1 My debut was released!
  • #2 We refurbished the house
  • #3 We put the house on the market so we can concentrate on finding our forever home.
  • #4 I got a promotion.
  • #5 Did I mention, I finally released my book baby!

The world has seen some awful moments, yes, but it’s the little glimmers of joy we should try and show some positivity for.

That’s how I get through life, anyway!

Just opt to adopt
A positive spin on life
It makes things seem brighter

    Congratulations on your house, promotion, and book release! If you would like a book review, please send a copy. I’ll be on a leave of absence, so I won’t get to read it until early next year. Best to you 🙂

    You have done a great job, Sis! Important goals are reached, you had radio interviews, and you took great responsibility for yours and the others kids too. This on an isle, where you cant leave without a plane or a boat. Lol (Sorry, just a little joke, in remembrance to 20 years ago, where i thought the UK is a very small state!) Michael

    You definitely do have a lot of good memories to hold on to from 2020. You know, I have been fixing my home and I have done this before…fix it then sell it. I mean why do I go and make it nice just so someone else can enjoy it? But you hit the nail on the head when you say “fix it so you can look for you forever home.” That is what I would like!

      This was our first home, as a family. It has many memories over the last 12 years, but we’ve outgrown it, so it is time to put roots in a place we hope we will be in for much, much longer!

    I really like this, Ritu. I wouldn’t opt out either. The alternatives could be worse.
