Happy 2022? More So, Goodbye COVID 2021

  As we enter the new year 2022 I reflect on the strange and monumental events that COVID-19 has bestowed upon the world in 2021. I highlighted most of them in my book, Our Breaking Point, How COVID Has Us Exhausted, Irritable and Overwhelmed.  I think we can all agree 2021 started off with a […]
