It has been 5 months since I’ve written here on my website but I made a promise to myself that I would write before January left us. I kept my promise – just in the nick of time! 2020 has had many of us in the proverbial tailspin and we welcomed 2021 with anticipation of a year full of optimism and less doom and gloom. 2020 left many of us void of relatives and friends due to the other nasty C word that has permeated our braincells for almost a year now while many of us were robbed of the warmth of the relationships with our loved ones with whom we would normally spend time to talk, to laugh, to hug, to hang out, to just relax. As the gates of 2021 opened up many of us reflected on the meaning and value of life. I dedicate this article to my good friend, Samantha, who lost her life on January 17, 2021 to the other C word but who left so much life within each of us who knew her passion for life and her energy. She will live on in so many of us because she embraced life by the horns and rode it ferociously!
One month in to 2021- how have you been living yours? What have you done to uplift, improve, or even modify your life? What, perhaps, has you stuck in moving on with something that you really want for yourself? How did you push through a challenge to achieve your goal?
Let’s embrace 2021 – and show 2020 that we can overcome, rise up, and achieve!
