As I write this all the things that have happened around the world in the past 7 days are whizzing around in my head. Are we making long term plans this year? Do we simply carry on despite the uncertainties? I for one would love a holiday this year, whether or not it will happen is another thing.
There is a lot that is going on around us that can’t be controlled right now but what we can control is what goes on on the inside of us. How we react to news, how we feel about now and the future and how we also think about the future.
Plans can fall through at any time but it creates opportunities for something else to happen. Not being able to eat out at our favourite restaurant could be an opportunity to learn how to cook something new.
Not being able to go on holiday could mean access to funds to start a new project or side hustle from home. The list goes on. 2020 has taught me that time is of the essence. It seemed as though time stood still with all of these restrictions but actually time passed by incredibly quickly and here we are on the 7th day of 2021.
Is it a happy new year? Yes, absolutely! Looking at the year with positivity is the best option out of a list that contains fear, hesitation and possible pessimism.
Who knows when things will be ‘normal’, can we really afford to sit and wait for that time to come? My question to you (and me) today is – What is stopping you from taking the leap and acting on that idea in 2021?
As always thank you for reading and happy new year xx
