So much haas happened this year. We’ve all had a lot of challenges. My family had to learn how to live together in a whole new way, with five adults sharing a fairly small space. I had to accept that one of my kids is in a different bubble, which meant not seeing him (and his wonderful girlfriend) as often as we’d have liked. I’m wearing the extra pounds gained from my failure to exercise. I miss having lunch with friends. I miss traveling to conferences and seeing my colleagues.
What I gained is a new appreciation for the people I love. An obsession with pretty fabric face masks. A willingness to find new ways to communicate with the folks I know. An opportunity to support those in the “gig” economy by truly valuing their service and making sure they’re paid accordingly. Gratitude for my family’s current virus-free status.
Wherever you are, and whatever you’re up to, I wish you a Happy New Year full of joy, health, wealth, luck, mystery, and the good kind of madness.
May all your wishes be fulfilled and your dreams come true.
I know I’m looking forward to a great year, I hope you’re part of it!
