Bringing you the heart of the matter in LifeCycles by Laurie Edwards-Tate.

The new year is traditionally a time for reflection and setting new goals with anticipation, but for many Americans, optimism could be lower and levels of uncertainty higher at this usually inspiring time. Going into a new year with resilience and fortitude is an excellent resolution.

There were thoughts by some that COVID would be over within a few months when it first occurred unexpectedly in 2020–and here we still are!

The ups and downs of it; the uncertainty of it; and all the continuously changing procedures and protocols for surviving COVID 19 have been shocking. Adding to the mix of uncertainties are concerns for our economy, education, safety, health care, supply, employment, illness, losses, politics and the world-at-large.

It is understandable if some experience disappointment, anxiety, depression and the like during such uncertain times.

β€œWe draw our strength from the very despair in which we have been forced to live.”
-Cesar Chavez
