Looking To 2022 With 2020 Hindsight

December 30, 2021

with 2020 in Hindsight

2021, was indeed another challenging year, first with some hope from vaccines, and then concerns with variants.  So another year to put behind us, except for the lessons we hopefully learned.

A continuing and constant thought on this site is that we have no control over what comes our way, we only have control over our response.  2020-21, with the pandemic, certainly made the point of the “what comes our way” part.  It was an extra challenge for the choosing our response part.  It made it in a commanding and global way.  It came to everyone.  Everyone was/is affected.  Yet, we must remember that we always have a choice in our response.

You Cannot Lower Your Mountain,  You Can Elevate Yourself!

You Can Always Choose to Elevate Yourself!

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given circumstances, to choose one’s own way”. – Dr. Viktor Frankl from “Man’s Search for Meaning” 

Soooo….. let’s choose to approach the New Year with this attitude

Let’s look to 2022, with the hope that the pandemics challenges are at least mostly behind us and we can soon return to normalcy (whatever that was and whatever it will be).

For this New Year, let’s do more than just wish.  Let’s make this a “Happy New Year”.  Let’s make this the year where our deeds make our wishes reality.  A year where we tap into “all of our possibilities” and potential to become the human we were destined and created to be. A year where we each do our part to make our world a better one.  No matter what the circumstances are.

Make 2022  your best year ever…so far!!

Healthy and Happy 2022 To All

Be Good Do Good Think Good Be Grateful Be Healthy

      I’m glad that 2021 was good for your and yours. I always encourage thinking positive and finding the good. That’s why I said 2020-21 were challenging rather than saying they were bad. When I wrote the draft of this post, I said “don’t forget the good of these years”. I left that out as I thought about those who lost loved ones to Covid and how that might read to them
      Thank you for reading and commenting and your hope for 2022
