2021 in Review

by in Mental Health and Well-being December 31, 2021

For most, 2021 was a very hard year, and I agree, it wasn’t the easiest to be honest.  We lost some very near and dear family members and friends, suffered through grief, sadness and a sense of loss.  My thoughts especially go out to those who weren’t able to spend time with their loved ones before having to face the mortality aspect of our lives.  As I sat and reflected back over the las t few years, I remembered how optimistic we were back in 2019 when the news of Covid broke.  I remember vividly, thinking that this would all be over in a few months and we would be back to normal again.  LOL. Life had other plans…as it always does.


I could sit here and focus on all the negativity, but that just isn’t me.  Instead, I choose to flip the script and look at it from different angles.  Yes, there is no denying that much of 2020 and 2021 sucked, but much of it didn’t.  I think there has been a huge shift in the mind set of people in general.  We have all realized that there is just so much more to life than the daily grind.  Again, I realized just how resilient that human race can be, and I am proud.  I am proud and grateful to live during these times, no matter how uncertain they might be – I am GRATEFUL, for I am learning, every damn day!  It is a hard time to be alive, but I also believe that it is an exciting time!  I will keep saying it – I am GRATEFUL!


On a personal note, we lost quite a few of our nearest and dearest in 2021 – that was hard, especially in cases where we weren’t able to attend memorial services or to say our goodbyes in person, however, in some cases we were, and for those, we are extremely grateful.  To those of you who lost loved ones in this year, please accept my most sincere condolences.  I wish only love, light and peace for you as you go through this process – but I want to also remind you that the soul who left this earthly plane, planned to do so at this time.  Every single thing was planned – their time of birth, their time of death, how they would pass, and who would be there with them.  Have you thought about the fact that that soul might not have been able to let go if you had been there?  In the words of so many teachers – all is in divine and perfect order.  Don’t hold onto the fact that you weren’t there, or that you couldn’t make it, it was planned – and the soul of your loved one knows that there were circumstances beyond the control of any of us.  Let go of the anger and resentment, and know that your loved ones are all happy and safe.  It was time.


From a business perspective, it was a great year – Metanoia moved into the new premises in DIP and it has been great to work from there.  Having the best clients makes everything easy, and the transition was smooth.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every client that walked through our doors this year.  I have loved every moment of working with you, and I cannot wait to see what lays ahead for you in 2022. We also added the Quantec to the Metanoia family this year, and in all honesty, it still blows my mind each time I work with it.  I can’t wait to see what else it will bring about in the year to come.   I know that many are looking at 2022 with fear and dread, but I choose not to.  I am excited to see what awaits us, and I choose happiness and love.  This will be my focus for the new year – no resolutions, nothing of that sort – only focus points – Happiness and Love.  I choose that, over and over.


There is another big announcement coming soon – keep an eye on our social media.  We have been working hard on expanding our service offering and our locations, so keep those eyes peeled – we will be sharing more very soon.


I want to take this opportunity to wish you and yours the very best in 2022.  Whatever you do, stay positive and know that you have the choice to make your life wonderful.  All the answers lay within you – all you need to do is listen.  Thank you 2021 for all the lessons, I am a better person for it.  2022, I am keen to see what you hold, let’s do this!
