2021. The flip of the calendar is always a peculiar time. And this year more than any it feels monumental. From one day to the next not much changes and the weight of this heavy year is certainly not lifted as we enter 2021. But what these transitions provide is a moment to stop and look around. A smack in the face to call our attention to the year that has been and the year that will be. A moment to zoom out of our day to day task lists and simply breathe.
So as we reflect on this year, be kind to yourself. Celebrate the victories. Mourn the losses. This year has stripped our world down to its bones. Take a moment to appreciate the beauty of what lies under the hood. What is essential.
In a world obsessed with what’s next take a moment to appreciate what is.
