“Your spark isn’t our purpose that lost box fills in when you are ready to live.” – Soul (Disney Pixar)  

The past year has been unprecedented beyond words for many, many people. 

Present circumstances have really done a number on the global community regardless of socio-economic demographics. As we approach the end of this pandemic year, let's focus on how 2021 can be a much better year filled with endless possibilities for all. 

Many have been pondering various scenarios regarding the what if or when I outcome of this pandemic during the past year. However, these scenarios have been around for eons. 

People have always focused on the what if and when I syndrome when things begin to go sideways. Even when life doesn’t go sideways, fear pops its ugly head bombarding people with these two questions. 

We only have today and we should make the most of it. Enjoy the ride. 

Marsha Mercant said “Don’t worry your life away waiting for the elusive prize at journey’s end. The journey is the prize.” 

The journey is your prize. Bottom line. 

Time is precious, fleeting and irretrievable. 

No one knows what anyone has gone through or is going through especially in these unprecedented times. 

A measure of kindness goes along way. Refuse to submit your thoughts, feelings and actions to the dark side of our human experience. 

This is your life.


Live it full throttle to the best of your ability in spite of present circumstances.   

Imagine all the possibilities in 2021.   

Fill your life with life-giving thoughts, feelings and actions.   

Expect the best as the best is yet to come for you. 

Awaken and unleash that wonderful, imaginative, and unstoppable you. 

This is your moment.   

This is your time to unleash that unstoppable, creative, possibility thinking human being within. 

Create an amazing 2021 for you, your loved ones and the greater global community. 

The dark side of humanity will always be there to suck you into its vortex of negativity and despair. 

Thank God for the ability to think for oneself as you don’t have to join the herd. Everything that surrounds you cannot be changed instantaneously. 

However, you can change your own personal attitude and suddenly everything begins to change around you. 

The real power lies within. 

Get to know that incredible, intelligent, and creative individual that resides at the core of your being. It has no clue whether something is real, imagined, big, or small. 

It only relies and acts on information that is housed in its core. 

Change that information dramatically and you automatically change the outcome of all your actions. 

A clear picture of your desired outcome now creates more order, less fear, less doubt, less confusion and thus allows us to tap into the higher side of our personality. 

As a result, you will come out better.

Tough, unprecedented times create a better version of you. Embrace it and it will embrace you with gifts that words could never express. 

The polar opposite of the vortex of negativity and despair is inspiration. 

A spiritual edge provides people with this armor of inspiration. 

This spiritual edge provides them with the freedom that is the innate quest of all human beings that breathe and live passionately not only through their words but their action. 

Everyone is engaged in his or her own metamorphosis similar to a butterfly. 

However, this life cycle is different for everyone. 

No one ever arrives as we are always growing and learning. 

These people are inspired beyond the usual parameters of human inspiration. 

This inspiration is embedded into their DNA. 

Let’s face it. 

Anyone can keep going when the going is great. 

However, to keep going when the evidence is not visible with your physical eyes requires faith. 

Fearless Actions In Trust and Humility! 

It requires an inner eye of understanding that transcends everything else. 

This is the beauty of the moment. 

Don’t believe that you are not equipped to embrace 2021 with expectation and gratitude because the best is yet to come for you. 

What if and when I? 

Tell them to hit the road as these questions don’t belong in 2021 any longer. 2021 is your year and you’re going to make it the best year yet. 

The best is yet to come in 2021. 

Happy New Year to everyone.
