Well, I don’t think anyone expected 2020 to turn out the way it did. In fact, a bolded line in my happy holidays post last year said “2020 is your year. Period.”
Ummmm…yeah. A lot of people will probably disagree with that.
The truth is, no one could have predicted how crazy this year has been. Many have lost loved ones to a crazy pandemic. Others spout conspiracy theories.
And don’t even get me started on our presidential election.
I believe, however, that there is still much to be thankful for, even if it’s a little harder to find it.
With the COVID-19 pandemic raging on, even just being alive is something to be thankful for.
I encourage you this season to dig deep for things that you can be thankful for. Allow an attitude of gratitude to permeate your very being.
I can promise you that things WILL continue to turn around for you, for this country, and for this world.
I believe that out of this pandemic we will see people coming together like never before.
See, 2020 is not just the ugly Christmas sweater of the past 10 years. It has also been a chance to slow down and reconfigure our mindset to what really matters.
Take that to heart and be generous to one another.
Yes, that may look different this year than it has in the past.
And you may not be able to do as much for others as you have in the past. But be good to each other. Show empathy, kindness, and love.
Let’s finish out the year strong with love.
So I’ll say it again. Merry Christmas. Happy Holidays.
Enjoy your week with your immediate family or bubble and get some virtual time in with your extended family.
Please know that I am so very thankful for each and every one of you.
And I will take that gratitude with me wherever I go. Enjoy the holidays.
