Earlier this year, I filed for divorce after 27 years of marriage. The future I envisioned for myself when I was 24 years old is no longer how I see my life playing out. In some respects, I think the events of 2020 and beyond have made that true for a lot of people. The past two election cycles have impacted many of the processes surrounding elections both in and out of polling places. COVID certainly changed the way we do business in many ways, and has impacted not only the way we communicate, but the way we do business, the way we share information and even how we meet! None of these things were ever on my radar! If you’re like me, change can be difficult – and even a little overwhelming at times. With everything that’s happened, it’s easy to want to put your head in the sand and hope it will just get better.
I’m a child of the 80’s. Timbuk3 said it best when they sang “My future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades!”
This year, I’m hoping you’ll grab your sunglasses.
Get in the car.
And embrace the future with me.
It’s a jungle out there, and we need each other.
