This time last year, I was spending Christmas in Japan with a wonderful host family who were kind, adventurous, funny, and just an all around joy to be with. Since then, I think we can all agree that much has happened in the world from COVID to Politics to movements that need to happen. We’ve come a long way from where we once stood a year ago and while it’s difficult to see past all the misfortune and sadness that has gripped us these last few months, take today and focus on all the good that has happened, no matter the size of it.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday, spending it with loved ones whether they be family or friends. This year has been a hard one, but we’re getting through it one step at a time so take today to breathe, relax, and collect yourself. Enjoy the day and look back on all the amazing things you’ve accomplished in life. Take joy in the ones you hold dear.
