“Every Single Day, in Every Walk of Life, Ordinary People do Extraordinary Things.” -Jim Valvano
The mental blocks that come up when we are older change our perceptions of what we hope to be or can still become. Yes, there are so many people that do reach their dreams, but there are many others that still are hoping for that break that lets them finally claim their niche in life. It is a struggle but if we continue to go after our goals, we can say that at least we tried and if we are very fortunate, we might start a new goal that would really be exciting!
The truth is that we do amazing things in our lives, but the struggle is real. It is about belief, but it also is about being flexible and realizing that what worked for us in 2015 may not be working as well for us in 2020. However, the ability is there. The experience still applies. Look, this is a difficult time, but you know that this new year is going to be better. Put yourself in a positive mindset. Focus on what you want this new year. Things are faster paced, and change comes quickly.
We are coming to the end of this year (and what a year it has been). It is time to look forward to a New Year and hope that we can wash away 2020 with its pandemic and children doing remote learning at home. This year has been more like science fiction. It isn’t going to be a radical change right away but, hopefully, we will see the vaccine(s) and our lives will look more familiar. That is my wish for the holiday season this year!
