Here we are.
Who would have thought, bright-eyed and hopeful, at this time last year that things would turn out like they have?
2020, the year that will live in infamy, is over and we can move forward. Most are hoping for their lives to go back to normal, but I challenge us all this year to do better.
We can do better than normal.
We have already started doing better than normal.
Let’s try this again.
Cheers to 2021 and the hope we can continue the work that has begun.
