Those Were The Days

“To reminisce with my old friends, a chance to share some memories, and play our songs again.” – Ricky Nelson

During 2020 we experienced great change. It doesn’t matter if you are working in a CPA firm or elsewhere. It doesn’t matter if you are retired or a child, change touched your life in a significant way.

It’s December. Hope is on the horizon in the form of a vaccine. Yet, you are suffering greatly from COVID fatigue.

I recently heard a song on SiriusXM that made me think of how we are all feeling – Those Were The Days by Mary Hopkin. Some of you might remember it.

Those were the days my friend
We thought they’d never end
We’d sing and dance forever and a day
We’d live the life we choose
We’d fight and never lose
Those were the days, oh yes those were the days

It’s okay to think with fondness about how things used to be, but it is more important to contemplate how things are going to be in the future and how you will embrace a work life that will never be like it was in the past.

Listen to the song here.
