«You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.» C.S.Lewis
In golf, it’s called a mulligan. You hit a bad shot, you don’t count it on your scorecard, and you get to hit again. It’s like the bad shot never happened.
Wouldn’t you like to give the year 2020 a mulligan? A complete redo. Like it never happened. No COVID-19, no racial strife, no job losses. Just life as we knew it. While it would be nice, there are no mulligans in store for us.
But nothing can stop us from looking ahead and making plans for 2021. While we are not out of the woods on the pandemic yet, there is promising hope of vaccines that should be available soon. Our nation has endured depressions, recessions, world wars, natural disasters, and more. We should take comfort in knowing we have had the resilience and fortitude to overcome many obstacles in the past. We can do so in the New Year.
We’ll discuss some ways to move forward in upcoming Reflections blogs. Until then, we wish everyone a very happy and prosperous New Year.
