2020 Hindsight

It’s time to truly embrace “2020 hindsight”.

With 2020 behind us, and thankfully vaccinations here to give us hope, many people are anxious to “go back to normal.” People want to return to “the way it was.”

But if you believe that G-d runs the world and that everything that happens is ultimately for our good, then going back is doing a great disservice to what we have all collectively experienced. As I have spoken about many times this year, The Almighty put the whole world in a “time out,” and just like a parent puts a child in time out to think about their actions, thoughts, and deeds, we too must ask ourselves the following:

What were we doing both personally and collectively that was not our “best selves” before 2020?

What “lessons learned” and insights did I gain in 2020 that would likely have never happened without this experience?

How can I now change for the good and bring this wisdom forward into 2021 and beyond?

What is the one practical change I will make because of 2020 that will always remind me of all the lessons learned?

No one can tell you why G-d brought this to the world, but we must ask ourselves: Why did G-d bring it to me?

May we enter 2021 blessed to be better people, committed to making a better world. May it be with good health, strength, and infinite wisdom.
