Things are getting exciting around here, today is going to be the first workout of the New Year!
Ok, for some reason yesterday I was really falling for the notion that as we saw the old year out and rang in the new that things were going to be different as we turned the page on the calendar to read 2021. Our tradition is to watch year in review shows and I watched Death to 2020 on Netflix and laughed so hard. It was a great recap of the dumpster fire of year 2020 was. I also watched Scotland’s Virtual Hogmanay about 3 or 4 times and cried, see yesterday’s blog post. I felt that things were changing, humanity was coming together and we were through the worst of this.
I also watched the ball drop in NYC Times Square with Ryan Seacrest, as usual. I flipped through all the NYE shows to listen to everyone say the same thing 2020 was tough but it was going to get better in 2021. We have gotten through the worst it seems. We should see things returning to normal in spite of all of the losses, changes, divisiveness and fear.
But today I realize it may be a better year or It may not. There are no guarantees in this life or in this world. We have a vaccine that should help things and we all hope for life to be like it was before the pandemic. The reality is that will take a long time. So New Years plans/goals/dreams?
Stay motivated to get things done here at home. Work out , eat better. Clean up this house and throw some crap away. It is surface clean but could use a tidy and organize this winter. Work on all the quilt tops that need to be quilted and finished the quilt tops that I have started in 2020.
Most of all be present , be mindful and look for a silver lining in each day. There is so much to be grateful for. There aren’t many times in life when you can watch Tv, scroll feeds, play games and blog regularly without guilt! Enjoy it.
I intend to rise from the ashes of 2020 better. Stronger. More resilient. More patient. Seeking those who want the best for the greater good. Look for the kindness and greatness in people. Be better than last year. More philosophical goals, less planner goals. More love.
Happy New Year, above all I intend to make the best of it, after all I believe this is going to be a marathon not a sprint.
Happy New Year!
Life has taught me a lot this last year and for the most part it wasn’t all bad …. but I sure am thankful for my quilting and for positive blogs like yours to give my brain a break for the news and social media. Thank you for your posts.
