Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) Looks Back On 2020

Going into 2020, I thought, this is going to be a memorable year.

Three words I would use to describe 2020 are unpredictable, intense and lesson-filled.

My biggest accomplishment of 2020 was accomplishing my goals and staying productive amidst the chaos.

My high point of 2020 was being a first-time home owner.

My low point of 2020 was feeling emotionally drained and exhausted.

My favorite picture that I posted on Instagram this year is from a shoot I just did with Lesley Bohm, one of my first shoots with my new haircut. I feel empowered by it.

The person who made me laugh the most in 2020 was Bryton James [Devon, her real-life beau].

The shows I enjoyed the most in 2020 were SUCCESSION and OZARK.

I’m most grateful for the fact that in 2020, I still saw progress and successes, even though most of the year was spent at home.

Even though 2020 had its challenges, for me it has been a pivotal year in my growth.

In 2020, I learned about myself that I can do anything. Cutting off my hair was a big symbolic gesture of that.

If I had to do 2020 all over again, I would not change a thing.

My plan to ring in 2021 includes being home and safe, counting my blessings.

My biggest wish for 2021 is that the seeds I planted in 2020 start to grow and bloom.

The resolution I hope to keep is fear less, love more.

My goal for 2021 is to soar.
