We are almost through 2020. What a year it has been. I have learnt that life happens on its own despite our own planning or expectations. How we respond to the unexpected is what determines the real outcome.
I have been in a wheelchair for eight years now. My wife has a photo of us dancing at a wedding in the November just before the accident. Little did we know that was the last dance we would have had. As the song goes save the last dance for me. The lesson for me now in 2020 is to have that last dance, because tomorrow may not come. Enjoy the moment and be present in the moment. Time is precious and all of us have the same minutes per day. Make them count. Make the call, go on the date, write the book, and do whatever it is you dream of. If not today when? Tomorrow might change, or worse, it may never come.
I wish you all a very merry Christmas and prosperous new year. My wish for you is to be present in the moment and live life to its fullest. We all have the time and ourselves to give and dedicate to others. Let’s make it a better world for you and me and the entire human race.
2020 gave us a world of opportunities to do just that. Let us continue with it into 2021.
