This was the most popular episode for 2021, so we thought that we should remind you of how great it was; hope you remember why you made it the most popular.
Mary is open and honest about the pains of family separation, suffering from anxiety, and the rejection of her scripts. However, she recalls her tenacity and resilience to bounce back and overcome as she revels in her creativity and passion for life. She is refreshing and affable.
Alas, 2021 has swiftly come to an end, in some instances with a bit of drama, and in others; quite subdued and low keyed. One way or the other, we invariably must make way for a new year with new beginnings, a new start to life in another form or fashion that we hope will bring us the benefit and success we failed to accomplish in the old year. So many resolutions; so many dreams and visions, plans that may or may not be realized. Firstly, one must be honest with ones’ self and ask two questions: 1. What can I do differently? and 2. How? Simplicity must be the key to un-lock the truism of change, it is the simple things that will have the most impact, maybe you ended the year trying too hard; you need to know when to let up. Maybe a little more time spent with family is what it will take to make the difference, maybe it is your tone of voice that distorted your communication, or maybe a little more compassion and empathy shown in some instances, could have you gotten to you more support as a leader. I do not know what your sore points were last year, but I do know that for 2022, they must be gone; removed, and replaced by something more engaging and emotionally rewarding. My year began with virus-like symptoms, and like so many, my wife and I had to endure some mandatory quarantine; it was no picnic. We both lost smell and taste and spent specific time self-medicating, with directives from a family practitioner; this was never in our planning, and so it reminded us how the best-laid plans can be derailed in a heartbeat. We valued our lives and existence a little more; realizing, that the onset of covid 19 is not a death sentence on anyone, but rather a test, of our resolve and resilience as humans. We recognized more how not to take anything or anyone for granted, that people are people everywhere and time and chance becometh everyone. We are better now; thank God, but there were moments when we both felt the strains of doubt and uncertainty, this feeling can create depression and hopelessness because you want the discomfort to end, and the pain to subside. My throat was sore for 4 long days, on day five I had enough, and cried bitterly as a baby whilst asking God to bring some semblance of closure to the symptoms; it appeared as though they were winning. What we soon recognized, was that you need to have a strong will and mindset, and a deep belief that this too shall pass; in the meantime, manage yourself as best as you can finding activities to shift your focus away from what you were feeling. I started doing sudoku, and, writing poems, and reading new books; they all helped a great deal. Of course, our undeniable faith and trust in the hope of an awesome God, brought much comfort and relief; we were sound in the thought that He would not allow us more than we could endure, and a way of escape was inevitable. So season 2 of my podcast will be late, a few episodes had to be cancelled but we are on our way to planning and replanning; it has become quite necessary. A new year requires a new focus, a new point of reference, a new source of repositioning; maybe a new collaboration, whatever needs to be done just do it. Don’t punish yourself for the failures of last year, reward yourself for effort, find new horizons to pursue, seek a new path to embark upon or follow. It is a new year, and it begs for new beginnings. NEW IN LOVE, YOUR PARTNER IN GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT. ANDYC.
OUR GIFT OF LOVE THANKS AND APPRECIATION TO YOU FOR SUPPORTING OUR PODCAST, WE LOVE YOU AND LOOK FORWARD TO BRINGING MORE VALUE, HOPE, INSPIRATION, AND TRANSFORMATION TO YOU IN 2022. OUR DESIRE FOR YOU IS GOOD HEALTH, HAPPINESS, AND PROSPERITY.
GODSPEED AND GOOD TIDINGS
Nothing significant or even simplistic in this world was ever accomplished by one individual; there was somehow always a team or combined efforts, that came to be responsible for the final or end result. Now that we are at the end of a most dramatic and challenging year, I can’t help but wonder, at the many times we had to work together, just to ensure, that some of us made it to the next day. The pandemic has hastened the trajectory of artificial and social intelligence, and it has also given us the opportunity to reinvent, self-learn, and collaborate, just to survive. It is rather ironic, that what appeared to be so divisive and dismantling, has in many ways, taught us to be cognizant of our equal humanity status and vulnerability, and has exponentially opened the doors of innovation and new-age thinking. It is no secret then, that as a people, we are better served when we come together in the face of one common threat if we can objectively recognize our similarity in resistance, and our commonality in recovery, then we can also recognize our opportunity to coexist in unity and growth and development. My aim; indeed my goal, is to create a single vibrant and open community, that shares the tunnel vision of an astounding place where people of every corner of the globe, and sphere of life, can support and love each other on a daily basis. I’m not talking about another Social Media platform, nor another version of minding people’s business online. What I’m referring to, may even sound like a cinematographic utopia; but, consider for a moment, that you can grow and develop every day of your life as an individual, and all you had to do was to tap into this reservoir of love and inspiration, where there was no judgement or bias. You could essentially bare your soul; wear your sleeves out, because we were all in the same place at some point in our lives, and therefore just willing to share for the sake of bringing hope, clarity, and value. I want to engage in meaningful and soul-searching dialogue, the kind that says “I am ok, you are ok”, the kind that resonates with transformation and happiness. The kind that brings hope to the despondent, and reignites passion in the hearts of lovers; the kind that edifies and educates, the kind that heals and invigorates; it brings visions into focus and dreams into perspective. The kind that does not hold to perfection as a prerequisite, nor cares about societal branding, it loathes segregation and embraces acceptance; it appeals to our moral-ethical and spiritual wholesome. What if in 2022, we can actually make that a reality? Would that be something to look forward to? Heck yes, it would! I have taken the initial steps, and the gauntlet is now at your feet, let’s not be online strangers in 2022, let’s get to know each other, let’s form bonds and build relationships; let’s pledge to be there for each other through thick and thin. I’m inviting you to subscribe to our community and get a special version of my e-book: 3 Steps To Self Fulfillment & Happiness, the choice is entirely yours, but this is my holiday gift to you and my New Year hope. In the meantime, ponder sincerely on my vision, and let’s see how much better we can be together. Happy Holidays and Godspeed for all of 2022.
