Hello my lovely people, long time no read. Did you miss me? I am curious… how has the new year started for you? How about 2021 Resolutions or not so much? To be completely honest with you, I am quite happy that we left 2020 in the past. It was a pretty difficult one… not only for me personally, but for each and every one of us. It made us appreciate the small things and not taking anything for granted. Funny how a pandemic can put everything into perspective, but also makes us stop for a minute or two… and simply take a deep breath and take everything in.
So now what is with the 2021 Resolutions?
All in all I have made my mind about these kinda stuck ways and what we should focus on. 2021 is the year to bin that kind of thinking and stop trying to cut of the negative in ourselves by making these wishful thoughts we call resolution. Why not take every moment as it comes and simply make the best of it. Gazing in the eyes of new opportunities, of our own desires and simply do what makes us happy. That is my new thought process. Cutting all the strings and walk over boundaries, to come closer to my own happiness. It is more that obvious that the new year would not cut us some slag, but that is fine, because we are survivors.
2021 Resolutions for me are no more. I have learned to accept myself with all my good sides and bad. They are a part of me. I embrace my feistyness, when it comes to things turning not quite as I imaged them to. I welcome it when I get lit by people, who are not my cup of tea. But to tell you the truth…there are way worse things than that. I also adore my carrying and calm nature, my ability to love unconditionally, to forgive… So I am a person of contradictions, as are you.
In 2020 I lost my aunt and a good friend of mine in a tragic accident. So it is safe to say that it showed me its unkind side. After that experience I shut down for some time… grieving. 2020 kissed me with the pain of saying goodbye to people, who I love and quite a few unpleasant aspects of life. But I also met new people, kind and pure, who I appreciate and who make me smile inside and out. It also opened new job perspectives and somehow forced me to get as close with my family as I have never been before. And I am thankful for that.
But after all that I feel stronger. 2021 came, as well as my birthday… and the first snow where I live fell… to remind me that after every difficulty there is a silver lining. That every situation looks different under the magnificent snow blanket, so pure, clean and cold. And all the worries about what is expected of us…disappear, to show the raw and genuine human nature, which is simply to be accepted, appreciated and loved.
That is also why I can only say… Smile and do the things you love and make you happy, only you. With no worries about what will anyone think, because we are unique.
