Sorry folks, but we must admit that 2021 was a bust! After the previous year, we all had hoped 2021 would be amazing. We kept telling ourselves, “Don’t give up!” Yet, the deadly virus was not a thing of the past, our favorite enjoyments were limited with theaters and restaurants shut down. Schools were closing and our children had to learn virtually, without seeing their friends. The hardest part for many was not seeing their loved ones, even on special occasions. Safety was a priority, with our liberties in lockdown, and new variants spreading like wild fire.
LET’S FORGET THAT DOOM AND GLOOM!
It’s history and now 2022 is here to bring us the joy and happiness we all deserve. I for one believe this with all my heart. Belief is a wonderful thing. You wake up in the morning with a feeling that maybe something good is going to happen, and if you look around and open your eyes and your heart, it might appear out of nowhere. You might stumble and find old coins or a package filled with money that will feed your family for a week. Sure, that’s unlikely to happen, but that joy and happiness could come in the form of a beautiful butterfly that catches your eye. A rainbow in the sky. A Cardinal when you’re thinking of a loved one. Maybe it’s more direct and material—like a juicy contract in the mail, a raise or praise, and the opportunities for a bigger and better job.
CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOR THE BETTER
With more openings than fillings this is certainly the time to strike out and find that job you’ve always wanted. You’re in the bargaining chair and have the power. Let your dreams and ambitions free, search for the highest star. Each day take a moment and close your eyes. Visualize what you want your life to be like. How to make it happen. Remember that each day is precious, so look for the silver lining, something to be happy for. Make it a habit, and you might find you’re smiling more!
Start out with small changes. Read a good book instead of watching TV. Take up a new sport or a hobby that you once enjoyed. Think deeply about it. This just might be the time to change Your World!
DON’T GIVE UP
Wishing every one of you joy and happiness and an exciting new beginning in the year 2022!
