Be in the game
What determines a happy or sad new year? You do. We can talk about how difficult 2020 has been but that excuse is over now. What you do starting right now is what you will begin in 2021. Presidents coming and going, Covid-19, vaccinations, unemployment, stimulus checks, and whatever comes tomorrow.
We are in a difficult time but often difficulty brings out the best in us. Being helpful to others that need help makes you feel better about yourself. Think about it. Why not start the new year helping someone who needs your help? Or a friend, neighbor, or a family would like to hear from you. This is a great time to connect with people that you know but you haven’t talked to in a while.
Finally, if you don’t want to call a friend you can always send a letter or email. People usually enjoy communication especially this time of year. Keep in mind that things can get improve. Opportunities might be just around the next corner that can change everything for the better. You can make it happen. Life. Be in the game. It only happens if you are here.
