Here we are at the end of the year. It’s time to be holly, jolly, and stuffed with treats all while being socially distant. This is usually the time of year when we start seeing the year end wrap up. List after list on whether we have achieved our goals for the year. Let’s be clear here – this year has been one of the worst for most citizens of the world. Record high job loss, evictions, not to forget how poorly kids are doing in school trying to suffer through 6 hours a day of virtual learning. We are drowning in emotions and have little to no where to process those feelings.
I want to be very clear that if you have survived 2020 so far, you are blessed and superseded any goal that could ever be set! Loved ones are getting sick and dying from COVID-19. Too many are not taking proper precautions to safeguard others by simply wearing a mask. So I say again, if you are currently surviving, you are winning. This is not the time for planning. This is a time to keep yourself well and keep others well.
If you are fortunate enough to have enough to eat, please locate local food banks and donate either money or food they may need. If you are struggling, please ask for help. No one should have to suffer for anything. If you have the time and have closets filled with old clothes, especially winter jackets, please consider donating it to those in need. Winter is coming and there are families out there that due to job loss or other factors are unable to purchase winter items for their families.
If you are in a position to help – please help.
Stay home. Stay safe. Think about others and wear a mask.
