I looked back at my thoughts last year, on Christmas Eve. It seems so long ago, and yet, not so long. Some things changed back from the strange 2020 world to more like 2019 for me, but not many. Instead, I found myself navigating a world where many things changed, including my personal life as my children have grown up and moved on.
This year I find myself less disrupted in life, coping better, and mostly going along with the flow of the world. I hope that those of you reading this are finding the world easier to live in now than last year, and you have things to look forward to in 2022.
I've said it over in different editorials and presentations, but remember that we work to live, not live to work. Enjoy the time you have with loved ones and friends, appreciate the good things, and do your best to get past the bad. Reach out when you need help and ask for it. Give others support as often as you can.
Above all, find reasons to smile more days than not.
Happy Holidays, and Merry Christmas.
