    Here's To Fresh Hope


    I think it's safe to say that the year we've left behind challenged us all, everywhere, in unique ways. We're in a fresh decade right now. Just saying 2022 feels weird. Somehow, it feels like the future ought to be better. But that is, when you think about it, nonsense. The future cannot somehow, magically, be better. That's because the future, really, is created out of the here and now. The present. And the present is created out of us. What we think and what we do. Sure, there are a gazillion things that are outside of our direct control. The pandemic just proved that. But there are also some things which only we can choose to control. How we behave towards each other and how we think of our self are things that we can control, should we choose to.

    So, is the year ahead going to be challenging? You bet. It doesn't matter where you are. There will be some fresh issue to deal with. Some fresh unexpected problem to trip us up. At the same time, look at us. We made it through a pandemic year with our sanity largely intact. We are still here educating ourselves about health, both physical and mental. We are learning to be stronger and better inside, as well as outside. These things are indisputable. They also should fill us with hope. It doesn't matter what lies ahead, how challenging the year will be. We, each of us, all of us will be better than enough to deal with it, survive and thrive.

    Alone we are all weak and fragile. With just a little help however, a little encouragement, a small sense that others believe in us and have our back, we are more mighty than we can imagine.

    The team, this year, has a lot in store for you all. But the magic ingredient is what you have already been exercising. The sharing of knowledge, trivia and information. The conversation that lifts others when they are feeling low. The generosity of a welcome for newcomers who don't know us and have been conditioned by the web to expect the worst. The empathy we exercise when we tell someone we have never met in person, who needs us to encourage them when they feel low, "I hear you". "I understand".

    Words have power. Emotions are infectious. The year ahead is full of hope because we are full of hope. It will be better because we shall choose to be better. To be more.

    You guys are more amazing that you realize. I hope the year ahead is full of happiness for you, regardless of the challenges you face. And, we will be here. Stay safe.

                              Damer thank you for these words and all of your amazing posts over the past year!

                              I haven't logged on in some time and I'm really enjoying reading through all of your words. The messages are exactly what I needed to hear last year but for whatever reason I couldn't find it in me to log in.

                              I'm so grateful that this community is here and looking forward to bringing this positivity and hope into 2022
