Happy December, Happy new month!
What a year we've had. The pandemic brought many challenges and opportunities for humans to learn new ways to connect and introspect. Our sense of routine was interrupted for many, and many voices marginalized in society were heard and validated. I believe this year we saw humanity and vulnerability in each other.
We are so disconnected from life and from what and who is faithful to us. We have learned a lot about ourselves and others this year. This year, with all its challenges, came with it new possibilities for individuals, families and nations.
December is the last month of the year. Let's use this time to ask important questions before stepping into the new year.
Who am I?
What do I want from life?
Who and what surrounds me?
Am I faithful to myself, or am I living other people's dreams?
What's my vision?
Those are a few questions to start asking yourself. What do you want this time around? .
