2020 will be tagged, marked, and branded as the year that affected the whole world. Covid literally halted most activities in every country leaving its inhabitants filled with fear, stress, anxiety, and bewilderment. How could such a pernicious pathogen spread globally so quickly? The WHO definitely let us down. That being said, it’s still not over and we are left dealing with the many wakes of its after-effects.
But, we can’t let this situation ravage our lives. Remember these sayings, ‘When one door closes, another opens’, ‘Always see hope in the negative’, ‘Always turn a negative situation into a positive one’, ‘Positive minds produce positive futures’, and so on. Many are grasping these words tightly and infusing them into their lives.
Many lost their jobs, while others are working from home and even homeschooling. If we stop, reflect, and see the bright side and hopeful prospects, these circumstances give us such a huge opportunity to reinvent ourselves or revisit an interest. With so many positive options available, now it’s time to make some pragmatic decisions.
Make a career change and go back to school, especially if you are time clocking a job you hate. There are a lot of government-sponsored programs and grants that will allow adults to go back to school and get trained in a vocation or field they are passionate about. But you also want to ensure your new calling has a need and demand in the world. A new career would be life-altering and rewarding, so give it some profound thought.
Being home is a great time to start a website or blog. If you’re tech-savvy, you’ve got a head start. If not, it can be intimidating and overwhelming at first. You would first need to choose a niche and a platform. Blogger is free and easy to use, or the other option is WordPress – which will require you to go through a learning curve. You will now need to look for a reliable host and an attractive theme. After that, you can customize your blog with specific plugins and tweaked settings. Then you’ll want to learn about SEO. There are numerous courses available online, or you can turn to companies like the Best SEO Toronto who can do the work for you and take your business to the next level. Once you are set up, all you need to do is write and publish your content. A blog can be gratifying, productive, and fruitful.
Others have had job opportunities open up that require them to relocate to another state or country. Moving from Canada to the US for employment or vise versa requires a lot of paperwork, planning, and a positive attitude. Excitement aside, you will need to find a new home ahead of time and move all your household belongings. Packing and moving can be an exhausting chore so it’s best to leave it to moving pros. I found this website that offers professional moving and exceptional customer service, so their clients can relax and enjoy a worry-free move. Being prepared for your new endeavor will ensure your move and new future will unfold seamlessly.
2021 doesn’t mean we have to live on the edge of worry and distress. It can be a year filled with fun, new opportunities, and new hope! Let’s take advantage of this and make some exciting plans now!
