Farewell, 2020

One of my favourite photos from 2020.

I don’t think anyone that I know could have predicted this year – it has certainly been different. That being said, it has been different for everyone, which is something that should bring us all together.

At the risk of sounding negative, I feel as if this hasn’t really been humanity’s best year. Even in the face of very real (and lasting) consequences, selfishness and greed have driven some people to do things that placed other in jeopardy. It seems that we, as a whole, don’t seem to learn from our mistakes. I want to write more about this – but I also don’t want to contribute to the ever-increasing cloud of darkness.

I would much rather remember the good times – the new friendships that have been created and the existing ones that have been strengthened. I would rather remember the people that I have helped, and how our kids have given us so much to be proud of. I would like to thank all of our front-line workers for risking everything to help those in need. I would rather take the spotlight and move it from the bad to the good – the choice to be great should be something that we always honour.

2020 will be a year to be remembered – let it be a memory that serves to propel us into the light.

I will send one final thought into the ether before the world turns…

In times of crisis we can do one of two things: we can choose to be more of what we are, or rise above to become more than what we were.

May your 2021 be full of health, hope and happiness.
