The sun sets tonight on another year. How grateful we’ve been to experience it and see it through to the end. Many people were not as fortunate and will not see the dawn of this new season we now enter. 2021 was their last trip around the sun.
Take a moment — a genuine moment — to honor those who came into this year but will not leave it, instead laying down with it forever. Take a moment also to feel the beat of your heart, the sensation in your fingertips, the visions in your mind of your future.
You are here. We are here. We got new scars this year. Probably some unique and unexpected ones, all things considered. Yet we have the opportunity to continue our journeys.
Let your scars be lessons, not of fear and future concern, but of your strength and resilience.
