Well, here we are. Another year hours til being down, with another year ahead for optimistic outlooks and new beginnings. Like most, I examine all the happenings of the past year very critically on this day, knowing that a fresh start lies ahead tomorrow. But, there's not much of a fresh start happening for anyone. Just a continuation of everything that has currently been going on in your life, with a new view. Nothing more than a few weeks getting adjusted to writing another number on your checks and other documentation.
This year we saw several terrible occurrences around the world. Especially with the media popularizing everything vile and depressing. Not really giving anyone a chance to feel good about their lives. Does this mean we should ignore media altogether? Perhaps. Or we could just accept the fact that the world is sometimes a depraved place with malicious people seeking out candidates for their next dishonorable act.
No matter the perspective, know that striving to be a better person can really be contagious. Whether you're venturing out to empower yourself or others, making an effort for positive change makes more difference than it does not.
We all see the way social media has progressed into a day to day documenting for the lives of common folks you may have never had a platform to express themselves. But, as unfortunate as it is, typically we see so much negativity in a connected, yet disconnected world.
Change is imminent for all. And if this isn't on your itinerary for the remainder of your days after this tumultuous past year, then get out of the way for those that seek better outcomes and great visions of what we have in store for the future. The resources are here. It's just finding the perfect balance to connect all facets of what we have been so fortunate to see in our lifetime. If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem. Here's to a New Year and everything to come.
