Yes, to all the above.
This has been a wild year for all of us from world spanned diseases, natural disasters, political madness, women’s marches, Black Lives Matter, it seems like the world is boiling over… like it’s had enough of us humans living our selfish lives, not caring about the earth nor one another.
Yet we are trying to do our best wherever we are on the journey, at least I like to hope so.
A lot of people have lost their jobs, decided not to go back to them, or re-imagined their type of work and some have done absolutely fantastic.
Wherever you have been, you can look at it as problems, or you can flip it around and see it as opportunities, to stand-up and try again, to try something different or to do even better. By simply reframing, life can be much more beautiful.
I hope you see opportunities everywhere.
I feel incredibly thankful, grateful and cheerful to be here, be alive and doing what I love beyond words.
However, first, it’s not like that every day and second, not all are, so be kind to yourself and one another. I believe it’s pertinent to be aware that we don’t know what people are going through, and not assume life is as fabulous as it might look in some (virtual) places.
Make it a practice to be patient, to take one more breath before you possibly snap, to try to understand, listen and appreciate the people around you.
The thing is, we all want to be acknowledged and heard, it’s not always easy but always worth the extra effort.
