Once again, 2021 was like no one could have ever imagined.
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt every aspect of life. Much of the “new normal” seemingly promised in our lives in September and October has slipped away. We now face the challenge of reimagining what it will be like to have another year of travel restrictions and physical distancing requirements.
As we stand on the eve of a new beginning – a new year, I find myself more hopeful. I find myself expectantly awaiting the next challenge.
The pandemic has taught us we are capable of so much when we come together. This realization has been especially true for our HBI team. We’ve learned that challenges are an opportunity for collaboration. We’ve learned that communication needs to be flexible – and at times super flexible. We’ve learned that we value relationships over everything else.
The other night we had an HBI virtual Christmas party. It was a very informal event that brought most of our team together – a group that now counts almost 50 members – for a celebratory cheer to one another. That night, while scanning the assembled faces on Zoom – I realized how important we are to one another. I realized that as we stand on the threshold of so much unknown, we can handle any challenge that comes our way . . . because we are united.
We have a new website, and we’ve got a new Blog. This entry is my first post on the blog site. Would you mind letting me know what you think? Let me know what you would like us to write on the site. Let us know how we can stay better connected with you. Drop us a message.
