Happy New Cheer

Happy Season. Happy New Cheer in the coming year.

In the week ahead I’m going to write blog entries about portable healthful snacks you can take with you.

I’ll refer to where you can buy the containers to use.

Hint: refrain from using plastic containers. Glass and food-grade stainless steel are better options. For the planet and for your health.

I’m excited that 2021 arrives soon. With it the opportunity to chart a new course.

Keep wearing your face covering when you go outside your house or apartment. Even when walking down the hall to the compactor chute.

The coronavirus is out to infect as many people as possible.

Should you feel unwell and not know if it’s a cold or something else: get tested for COVID-19 to rule out that you’ve been infected.

Stay 6 feet away from others even with your mask on.

In time when the spring returns we will be closer to the time when life returns to normal.

It will take time to get there. This has been an extraordinary year. Not in a good way.

We need to do more than pray for change. We must act to make the changes.

As Michael Jackson sang in “Man in the Mirror”:

To change the world you first have to change yourself.

This is something I’m committed to doing.

“Peace on Earth” rings hollow to me as a holiday sentiment.

In my own life I seek to bring peace and harmony in my interactions with others.

To serve the greater good.

Now more than ever living solely for self-gain is not the right way to live.

Let’s celebrate each other and our individuality as the clock ticks towards 12:00 on January 1, 2021.

A better day is coming for us all. I firmly believe this.
