Know your place

What if it wasn’t about the struggles, but about what we lost sight of that created those struggles?

What if 2020 was needed to tamper our arrogance, or to test our gratitude?

To remind us of the mortality of our dreams, and the reality of our shortcomings?

To give us reason to pause and observe, rather than race on with assumptions?

To remind us of our place in this world, as we persisted in acquiring that which we did not earn?

2020 was a year of brutal truths and harsh realities.

Of love and loss, and joy and grief. Like every other year of our lives.

Only, in 2020, we were significantly constrained in our ability to distract ourselves from these grounding realities.

2021 will be no different because the change in year doesn’t change our reality.

Our reality only changes when we change our perspectives.

If nothing else, let the gift of 2020 be a healthier perspective about life, and about your self.

Oh, and remember to breathe…
