Happy Holidays 2020: Finding Inspiration During the Toughest Times
Another holiday season is upon us, and normally it’s a time when we are surrounded by family and friends. Of course, very little about 2020 has been normal, and many of us are planning much smaller gatherings than usual, if not ones that are entirely virtual.
I am pretty sure celebrating the holidays over Zoom is not what Andy Williams meant when he sang about “the most wonderful time of the year.”
Count me among the people who are longing for a traditional December in which the only thing we’re worried about is making sure we get all the holiday shopping done on time.
Despite all the craziness, I still find myself feeling hopeful and optimistic right now.
There are a lot of reasons for feeling that way. We’ve already started to see the rollout of the first coronavirus vaccines. It will still be a while before they help us officially turn the corner on COVID-19, but we’ll get there.
We will absolutely get there.
Let’s also not overlook all the challenges we’ve collectively overcome in 2020. Offices were shut down, so we all learned to work remotely – and we did it very well. Social distancing, a phrase we never heard before, became a way of life. We adapted to that, too, even if we didn’t like it. Personally, I hate it!
It’s been a very cruel and difficult year. And it’s a year that will be talked about forever. But, somehow, we’ve made it to the end of 2020. We’ve done it together.
We’ve all seen so many examples of people supporting others, going the extra mile to help, and finding ways to connect
even when we can’t be in the same room.
I am thankful that our Future Tech team has been able to support so many organizations – like the healthcare heroes and first responders who, daily, put their lives on the line to protect us.
There’s a lot of inspiration to be taken from this year – it’s not hard to find if you look for it.
As we bring 2020 to a close, I wish you the best from our Future Tech Enterprise, Inc. family to yours.
Wherever and however you celebrate this holiday season, I hope it’s one that’s full of laughter, peace and joy. Be kind, be safe, and together, let’s look ahead to a better 2021.
