Level Up Campaign

Level Up Campaign

This year has brought more than we could have imagined and it’s not even over yet.

The year 2020 has been… well… an unbelievable decade. I mean between unprecedented natural disasters, a ravaging global pandemic, an eye-opening trench in mental health awareness and acknowledgment, and an unhinged disintegration of any actual progress made towards racial and social justice… just devastating. What we’ve seen so far this year has been, for lack of better words, beyond comprehension. But if there’s any knowledge we can place in the history books (or webpages) left for our children, it’s that we, as humans, are an unabashedly resilient lot. To say that however, is in no way to discredit the losses we’ve faced or the magnitude of injustice that still prevails. For heaven’s sake, there’s more injury than bandages at times and we are talking about surgery that’s needed. But real, actual, tangible, visible, earth-shaking change has to be established at an individual level. This year has brought more than we could have imagined and it’s not even over yet. But that’s not to say it is an ominous thing. It’s actually an opportunity to utilize who we’ve become during this time we’ve been forced apart, how we’ve grown, what skills we’ve attained—physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually—and what tools we have in our bags to share with the ones we are fighting alongside. There’s much room to gain, infinite strategies to take, and desperately needed comradery to seek in order to move forward to a true, undeniable win. For humanity. 

The fate of the world is literally in our hands E-V-E-R-Y-D-A-Y.
Let’s do this, Friends
It’s time to LEVEL UP.

To be honest, it’s taking everything I have just to get through each week. I can’t even get hyped for 2021 because it’s nearly the middle of October and nothing is different than it was the middle of March. I do love you trying to motivate and focus on positivity though. Gives me hope.

We all know the meaning of level up. progress to the next level. So think about what in your life you’re going to level up. Mine level up would be to kind of start life on a more positive level. I have had so many bad times in my live it would get so bad I have had thoughts of suicide but kept saying it’ll get better and every year it seemed like I couldn’t catch a break. I have learned to just roll with the punches and take every hit like it eas my last but my life has more meaning and have to keep pushing and just hope that it will one day get better. You can only hope, pray snd work hard so that you life has meaning and find inspiration in things or people to help with the struggles in your life.

I’m so stoked for this campaign! It’s absolutely what I needed. It’s been a helluva year, no doubt! In the struggles though, there has been immense personal growth, and profound change in my life. I believe that every setback, is a set up, for a come back! Free time has been plentiful, and I’m not accustomed to that. I’ve always been “on the go” and everything else kind of took a backseat to that perpetual running about. So when the world quite literally stopped, I had to go inward, and what a ride that was! I realized that I was running from the “life” I created for myself. That was an epiphany I didn’t expect to have at 31, but it came in like a ton of bricks, let me tell you! My main goal since this revelation has been to build a life that I don’t need a vacation from. If something isn’t in alignment with my highest good, and the vision I’m manifesting for myself- it has to go! That’s how I’m riding the #levelup train! Can’t wait to see how you all are too! Big love and bright blessings! Health and happiness to all! Xx

2020 has definitely been a struggle. Going back to work at a child care centre hasn’t been easy. It’s so hard to keep the children from playing and interacting with their friends which is why I encourage a lot of outdoor play in my program. I’m trying to look at the positives but sometimes feel likes it all negative. I’ve had a very rough starting to the first month of going back to work and have been feeling very stressed and overwhelmed with all of the tasks being thrown at me. My pacific childcare company has many centres across our region. with past experiences at alternative locations, I’ve had a lot of negative experiences which makes it hard. Those negative experiences have caused me to be a lot more sensitive in certain situations which is holding me back. I’ve actually thought about quitting several times but it always goes back to the kids and how much I love them. Also thinking about all the wonderful relationships I’ve made with some other colleagues and I realize that it’s not worth quitting. Being able to educate the future generation is very rewarding and I highly enjoy it. Seeing the smile on the kids faces everyday, especially lately, makes it easier to go to work everyday. That’s how I’m “levelling up”

This year brought so many challenges and chaos that I lost counting of how many ,but it also brought a wake up call that I think was much needed.
although there is no guarantee that in 2021 the pandemic will be over ,but the least we can do is to take this rare opportunity we’ve been given and what we learned from 2020 and use it for a better world ,for us ,for the next generation and for humanity.
