In the waning moments of 2021, a year that will always be personally marked as The Year I Had a Stroke
, I put together this overview at the day job as a public reminder of something good that happened. We’re a small team, most of whom I’ve still yet to meet in person, but we not only survived our first full year as a company, we thrived.
I’ve pretty much fully recovered from the stroke—albeit still with no good explanation for why it happened—and I have to partly credit the day job for my ability to bounce back as quickly and completely as I have. The flexibility of working from home obviously played a huge role in my initial recovery, easing back into things without worrying about stressful commutes or navigating bare minimum COVID protocols more concerned with saving the economy than people. As important, though, the mental benefits of doing something you enjoy with a group of people who are similarly committed to a clear mission can’t be underestimated.
The past two years have included a lot of bad things, both on a personal level and bigger picture, and 2022 doesn’t look like it’s going to offer any relief from either any time soon. Nevertheless, I’m going to continue focusing on the good things, and the things I can control, and keep pushing through the bad. That’s not resilience to me, it’s just practical.
“Go with what is. Use what happens.”
Thanks for subscribing and encouraging my random thoughts throughout the year. To be honest, I enjoy putting these together just for myself, but I’m glad other people find it useful, too.
Best wishes to you and yours for a happy and healthy new year!
