With there being just a few days left until we transition into the new year, we all can say that 2021 has truly been a year filled with its ups and downs, triumphs and failures, gains and losses. The COVID pandemic has been and still continues to be a formidable adversary that has had its repercussions on us all. Our mental health continues to be stretched to the point of almost breaking. We have had to endure the invasion of Capitol Hill, the Israel-Palestine Crisis, the Texas Power Failure, the Afghanistan crisis, wildfires, multiple shootings, Hurricane Ida, celebrity deaths, mass unemployment, the Gorilla Glue Girl hair fail, and the wretched Milk Crate Challenge… just to name a few. Our humanity and sanity has truly been tested this year, but 2021 was not a complete fail. There were several things that happened in 2021 that the world needed to happen. Kamala Harris became the first female black Vice President of the US, The US re-joined the Paris Climate Accord and the World Health Organization, The postponed 2020 Olympic Games were expedited, COVID vaccines were made available for everyone and currently exceeds 2 billion administered worldwide.
With change comes growth, and it is absolutely necessary to move forward into 2022 with positive thoughts, positive actions, empathy, sympathy, grace & mercy, and most importantly, LOVE in our hearts! I have said it once, and I will say it again… We should keep our eyes on the prize, and that cherished prize is LOVE. There is nothing greater than love. The world needs and craves love, more now than ever. I encourage you to think about something that you want to change, enhance, and explore. Formulate plans that will manifest. Evaluate your current situation and think about ways to improve and upgrade. It all starts with a single positive thought. If you can conceive it in your mind, and believe it with all of your heart, you can achieve anything. I also challenge you to transition into 2022 by treating others simply how you would like to be treated.
They say that which does not kill us, only makes us stronger… Well, we have survived COVID thus far. Every day that we are able to wake up is another day that we have to be thankful and to make the most out of. Self love and self care are going to be key areas in my life that I am going to continue to focus on so that I can be my best possible self to help and uplift others throughout 2022. In less than 5 days, we will enter into a brand new year, and we must find positive and healthy ways to cope with a changing world. We must find ways to take care of ourselves mentally and physically, and we must never hesitate to achieve our goals. 2022 is a fresh start. How will you achieve prosperity and refinement.
