December 30, 2020....
Nothing is like it should be, and we're desperately trying to see over the edge of the new year into the abyss that is our future....but there's no crystal ball or fortune teller willing to tackle this one.
I'm torn between being happy the year is coming to an end, and being apprehensive about what 2021 will bring.
I don't know anyone that hasn't been effected in some way by what 2020 has brought down upon us. Even if your life didn't necessarily change due to whatever your current situation was, those around you changed and that makes a difference.
I roll up and down with emotions like a new roller coaster trying to find it's groove....waiting for the exhilaration of the first drop combined with the fear it brings at the same time.
We're all trying to figure out what's coming next....because we simply couldn't have imagined what has already been.
Gripped by fear, anger, uncertainty, sadness, and a million other thoughts that run though our mind, we try to find the joy, find the happiness, find the stability and sanity that should be ours.
I really do believe it's still there, we still have to find it, and we still have what it takes to make it happen, but I don't dispute how much harder it is right now on everyone.
Every. Single. Person.
Every single one of us is trying to deal.
And we're doing a damn fine job every single day. The reality we knew changed so swiftly that we hardly had time to blink and take it all in. Then it changed again over and over and over and we tried to keep up with rules that weren't in place and a division like we haven't seen before.
What will 2021 bring?
I have no idea, and honestly I don't think anyone else does either.
But we'll hang in there, because that's what we do. And I have your back and you have mine, and we'll stand together holding hands, shoulder to shoulder and face what 2021
brings to us as one.
We've got this....bring it.
