Happy New Year: Welcome 2021!

Happy New Year and welcome 2021!

It’s time to let the past burn away and welcome new beginnings. The last year may have brought mistakes but now it’s time to let them go and start anew. Forgive others if needed and forgive yourself. Learn from your past so you won’t repeat it and dive into 2021 and let it take you to new heights. There is no doubt that 2020 has been a painfully difficult year with millions being impacted by the Coronavirus and many have lost loved ones — myself included. Never cease to look at the beauty that comes with life, never give up hope that the best is yet to come. 

2021 will bring many changes and though things seem unsteady if we as a nation work together we will see those changes for the positive. In a time when we’re focused on social distancing and are spending time apart, it may seem difficult to focus on community, but there has never been so great a need than now. In order to strengthen and rebuild our nation, we must begin in our families and then our communities. 

See where you can help your family and how you can help those in your immediate community. By serving others you will ultimately tap into your own healing and in turn, bring healing to your community thereby helping the nation heal.

Healing, joy, and abundance are waiting and maybe we will take unconventional steps to obtain these but as a nation, we will get there. Be blessed this New Year and welcome 2021!
