Happy New Year 2021
Well, my faithful readers, we made it to 2021! To properly appreciate this, let us review the past 12 months that was 2020. Here is a list of my top three topics for our country and the top three for myself.
The Covid Apocalypse arrives
I think it is safe to say this topic had the biggest impact on everybody. From the economic effect on businesses and individuals to the more important consequences of the health and lives of every person on our planet. I want to give my thanks, support, and prayers to all the health care workers on the frontline of this pandemic for their service, compassion, and bravery. I want to let them know they are always in my thoughts and prayers as they work diligently to keep us safe.
The Fires in West
My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who has been affected by these horrible fires. There have been many acres destroyed, evacuations, and loss. I do feel the need to share some headlines from the “You can’t make this stuff up department.” These were in the same news article from the New York Post.
“California wildfire explodes to nearly 2,000 acres”
“California wildfire leads to evacuations as 4,000 acres burn”
“Liam Hemsworth sells fire-damaged Malibu mansion for nearly half the price”
By all means, I am not trying to be callous about the fire damage to Liam Hemsworth’s house. I am just saying it needed to be in a separate post.
The Presidential Election
This has been the most contentious Presidential election I have seen. I have expressed my opinion about this in a previous story. I feel we need to replace everyone in political office by voting them out after two terms in office. Both sides have delayed sending stimulus checks of $600 to the American people but had no problem sending 15 million dollars to Pakistan and also voting themselves a 40 thousand dollar a year raise.
Now for the part you’ve been waiting for and the most important. How has 2020 affected me!
How the apocalypse halted my training
I had been in negotiations with an Equipment Dealer Association about hiring me as a consultant. On March 9, I attended a meeting with them and all that was left was the Board to vote on it. Then the Apocalypse hit, and everything came to an immediate halt.
Nine months of social media arguing
I must admit, it bothered me at first to see the depths that some people will go to berate and belittle people. Then it actually became kind of amusing to read some of these posts. I will try and sum them up from my perspective. “You’re wrong.” “No, you’re wrong.” “You’re a moron.” “No, you’re a moron.” “You cheated.” “No, you cheated.” To both sides of this argument, it is time to move on. Please repeat after me, “I’m rubber and you’re glue, whatever you say bounces off of me and sticks to you.” There, that should do it.
Hard drive on my computer
On December 27, the year that was 2020 gave me one final slap to the face. The hard drive went out on my laptop. I had to replace it and reload many of my programs and applications. It came right at the time I was updating my online training courses.
Even with all of this chaos, obstacles, and challenges I choose to look at the positive. The apocalypse caused me to establish an online training program that I am going to launch in the next couple of months. I am in good health and have a lot of great friends. I have the love and support of my family. I have an amazing girlfriend who loves me and is always there for me. I Love You Kristi. Happy New Year to all of you and thanks for reading.
Next week: Happy Birthday Justin
P.S. Please don’t say 2021 can’t be worse than 2020. Every time you say it can’t be worse, it gets worse. Trust me, I know.
