I woke up this morning and made my cup of coffee. As I sat at my desk and took that first sip it hit me.... that today is the last Sunday of 2020. Boy, how this year has flown. We have all faced many challenges this year and challenges are what make life interesting. Being able to overcome some of the challenges we faced is what makes life meaningful. It is likely 2020 is a year we will never forget. This will be a year that is written down in our history books.
This year has caused a a mental health crisis for individuals leading to more depression and anxiety. Many have been left without jobs and no health insurance. Those in the rare disease community have had to adapt to a different way of treatment and surgeries being postponed due to the pandemic. I know you are tired. I know you feel broken. We are all human, it is perfectly ok to feel sad or angry.
Although there have been times of chaos, lets reflect back on our own moments of joy and gratitude.
Every day is a new beginning. Take a deep breath, smile, and start again.
A new year is on the way and the possibilities are endless. I hope this new year ahead brings you peace as you open that new chapter book of blank pages. The pen is in your hands. End this year strong, the world needs you at your best.
Not to spoil the ending for you...but everything is going to be ok.
