As 2020 rears it's head, many exhale a huge sigh of relief. If ever a year truly tested the nation, it was 2019.
Everybody, and I mean everybody was pushed to their limits. Every aspect of life in our country seemed a challenge at the best of times.
The last twelve months were fraught with very low lows but, we shouldn't forget the highs experienced as well. While there may not have been many for the country as a whole, I am sure everybody can find something or that one event that lit an otherwise drab year.
It's so easy to dwell on the negative....
As we go into the New Year let's focus a little more on the reasons to stay positive (as hard as it may be) and to coin a very well-known phrase, "Be the change you want to see in the world".
Do things you have always wanted to do and do them without fear of failure. Make that big move or change your career path. Share a smile with a stranger and you will be surprised at the reaction you receive in return. Don't let the negativity of those around you cloud your view of the sunshine......your moment is just around the corner!
Live each day as if it's your last and remember once you're gone you can't take the material possessions or money with you but, you can leave your own, undeniable mark on the world.
2020 is your year, grab it with both hands and run like the wind.
