I’m ready for the year to end. I accomplished a lot. Published a book, kept a lot of people safe, and was on air every weekday morning doing my morning show with never once saying “covid, pandemic, or virus”. That was harder than it seems. A few mornings I was pretty stressed at the end of it. So, here’s my quote for 2020.
“2020 was a reset for all. Some improved, some adapted, and some remained the same and in doing so, are now susceptible to becoming extinct. The world as we knew it has changed forever.”
There’s a lot to be thankful for albeit all the changes in our “habits“ the past while.
The two things I’m most thankful for are food security and our volunteer emergency services organizations. I’m happy to live in a country where I can go to a store and purchase the food I need (as well as those yummy things I should not eat) and, as a volunteer fire fighter, our first responders. I don’t say this to point praise at myself, but to thank all those, when I get the dispatch call, other people who show up at the fire hall when a life (or lives) are at risk. So the next time you think there’s no hope, or no one cares anymore, remember to give thanks to those who, on their own accord jump out of bed at 5:36 AM on Thanksgiving Sunday (or any day) to, make a difference to the people in your community. It makes me proud to be a part of what’s good out there.
