Turning the corner!
Can you smell that? Sniff, Sniff... Spring is in the air! This time of year always makes me smile but even more in 2021 than in years gone by. This spring brings with it an immense sense of optimism! This spring may very well be the light at the end of the COVID tunnel that everyone has been staring at (and hoping for) all winter long.
For just about all of us, the past year has been extremely challenging. Seriously, it was a year ago (almost to the day) that the world basically shut down. People stopped going out in public. Businesses closed their doors. People didn't leave their homes without putting a mask on. People actually started to remember to wash their hands...
Do you remember the uncertainty that we all felt one year ago? Many of us have suffered losses of family and friends during that time. Many have suffered from the anxiety of not knowing what the future held for us. Then throw an extremely contentious Presidential election in on top of it all... The past year has been crazy! I feel like we have been running on pure adrenaline for the past 12 months.
One year later, we are finally turning the corner. The hardest part of the past year is behind us. Vaccines are rolling out and that provides a huge reason for optimism. The spring weather is around the corner, which means that we will be able to gather outside with friends and family again.
There is reason for optimism right now. Take a deep breath and enjoy it! Remember, though, it is not over, and we cannot let down our guard just yet!
