It been just over ten days into the New Year & what a difference a week makes. Depending on where you are, you’ve probably experienced lockdowns, COVID has taken more lives & the infection rates have skyrocketed, the Capitol building was invaded in the United States and all this occurred within the first 7 days of 2021.
My advice, pace yourself. It may or may not be a worse year than 2020, who knows but know that it is a marathon not a sprint. You want to be in it for the long haul. It’s too early to start feeling sorry for yourself, it’s too early to start complaining, it’s too early to start the emotional rollercoaster, it is too early. Take each incident as it comes be it lockdown, be it whatever is affecting or afflicting you. It is imperative you stay strong, easier said than done, I know but what are the alternatives?
I was told by an elder that the only people that know peace are in their graves, for if you don’t want to be there be ok with trials & tribulations. Life is all about dealing problems on a regular basis, we should however enjoy & cherish the breaks in between the chaos. Remember not a lot of people saw the New Year especially those that COVID took from us, be grateful that you are still here. You have come this far and survived what 2020 had so don’t give up now, keep fighting & I’m sure things will get better. In the meantime pace yourself, we all have a long way to go, the year has hardly started.
