Creating Your Own Circumstances

As we move into a new year, we are experiencing a familiar feeling. A sense that we don’t quite know what to expect. We never could have anticipated 2020 or 2021.  In fact, perhaps what we have learned is, that in a strange way, it’s okay not to be able anticipate.

Living through a pandemic the last couple of years has given us time to reflect on how we’re doing both physically and mentally. We’ve had many challenges, but one thing that hasn’t changed is our need for innovation while still managing daily tasks well throughout them all – whether big or small. Working in a pandemic is not anything we could have ever dreamed. (Or wanted to.) Sometimes not knowing what lies ahead is a blessing. It may too depressing, too demanding, too debilitating.

What we have had to do is to be fearless. Absolutely fearless. And that’s what we need to do in 2022. I’m reminded of one of my favorite quotes by George Bernard Shaw.

“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are they who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them.” 

I agree with Shaw. We need to be bold, courageous and make our own circumstances. It’s what we’ve done the last two years. Some successfully, some haltingly, some resentfully. Well, here we are at the beginning of 2022 being asked again to make our own circumstances
