My wish for you ...
As we approach the end of the year, I would like to extend warm wishes to all the researchers who have made this community their home, in one way or the other.
Over the course of the year, with so much going on in our lives, both professional and personal, and the world at large, it has been good to be able to share openly, to ask, and sometimes to just let go.
My, your, our words of support, personal stories, and tips were timely and they have undoubtedly made a difference, being uttered and being read just when they were needed...with the benefits flowing both ways, I am sure.
Take time to think not just of those things that did not go as planned this year ...but more importantly of those thing that worked, especially those smaller hidden gems that we may have missed celebrating, as they may have been subsumed by the daily, or we may not have had the chance to celebrate them like we planned.
Honour the losses - friend, family, job, career - you have experienced by living. Celebrate family, celebrate friends, celebrate love, celebrate life...celebrate 'you', you awesome person, who have made it thus far ...and will keep going, because your purpose is still ongoing.
Wishing you and yours a season of hope, joy, good health, and togetherness...and much prosperity in the year ahead!!
I am purposefully driven to water the soil to grow the seed that is already planted.
