Welcome to our annual Health & Wellness edition and our first issue of 2022.
Another pandemic year has passed and we keep on keeping on. Is life getting easier? Perhaps for some it is, but for many, I suppose things are still challenging - maybe more so now than ever. Coping with change is never easy. Coping with uncertainty is always hard.
I’d like to think we’re getting used to life under Covid’s thumb. I’d like to think we’ve started to figure out a way to co-exist with it; to manage its ebbs and flows.
The truth is, I have no idea.
I’ll be vey honest with you now. I don’t know what to believe.
With one foot still in the city and the other in the country, I have a very conflicted view of this whole thing.
More vaccines, more boosters, more lockdowns, more homeschooling?
I’m not sure who to trust.
The government? The media? The medical community? The pharmaceutical industry? My own intuition?
I don’t think I’m alone here in posing these questions and feeling this level of uncertainty.
There are some who will believe without question and comply. Others will inherently not believe what they’re being told and will never comply.
What’s the happy medium?
Who am I to say?
Of all the publisher’s notes I’ve written over the years, this has been the toughest. Usually, the words come flying out of my mind and onto my computer screen. This month, however, I’m struggling to find the right ones to write. I hope you take this as it is intended - simply one man’s view of our current state of affairs and with a grain of hope for a happier, healthier new year.
