Here’s My Christmas Wishlist
A few things I wish for you and for all of us after such a challenging year.
Hey there! I know you’ve probably been having a rough year. I assume we all have, in varying degrees and each our own unique circumstances. My problems may not be the same as yours, but I believe regardless of what you and I have been through this year, we all deserve a break these next few days to enjoy time with the people we love or simply time with ourselves. And, yes, we deserve to have a better year ahead.
So here are a few things I wish for you (and all of us) this Christmas:
- I wish for some sense of normalcy next year — if not what we’ve always known as “normal”, at least some new normal we can all adapt to.
- Speaking of the new normal, I wish you the strength and courage to adapt and face whatever 2021 brings.
- For those who have been affected career-wise — whether you’ve lost your job to some degree or stuck in a less-than-ideal work situation because you’ve lost all other options (or simply can’t take the risk) — I wish that you find a much, much better opportunity than you would have imagined.
- Speaking of — I wish all of us the peace of mind, the confidence, the security, and the prosperity to finally take that big risk we’ve been pondering over throughout our lives.
- I wish for true compassion and empathy in the workplace next year; we need those now more than ever.
- I wish for meaningful human connection to happen in whatever shape and form — whether face-to-face (because we finally beat the virus) or in the digital space (because we’ve learned how to truly connect in spite of all the limitations).
- I wish for innovation — that people find new ways to live, work, and play in this new uncharted space, and that life goes on better than ever because of it.
- I wish we all find happiness next year and if that proves near impossible, learn to truly create happiness for ourselves and others.
No matter what we’ve been through this year, I believe we’ve all done some amazing things. Surviving is a huge accomplishment in itself. And I’m optimistic 2021, regardless of what difficulties it may bring, will find you better equipped to face the adversity.
