It’s been a challenging stop start year for many, but come what may, Christmas is on its way!
The festive period brings joy to many and people of all faiths come together with family and friends to celebrate in some way or another. This is a chance to really focus on our blessings rather than setbacks. Here’s a guide on how to safely make a Christmas Bubble with friends and family.
What a deeply transformative year this has been on so many levels. There have been hardships, isolation and it’s been challenging to say the least but being forced to be still and present has also provided the opportunity to be creative, enabling us to break down some of the tangled webs of foundations and systems built to serve communities of the past. Innovation from creative destruction can be a great source of economic expansion. Progress of this nature has the ability to transform entire economies and improve standards of living and that is something huge that we can take from 2020.
As we continue to navigate our way through tiers, levels and restrictions 2020 continues to present challenges. And while vaccine approval news is encouraging, the expectation is for the return to life without Covid to still be some time away so tighten up your seat belt, we still have a way to go but come and enjoy the journey with us because as we close out this year and start looking to the year ahead it’s exciting to start thinking about moving past 2020?!
