Still feeling in ‘holiday mode’, I think I can stretch the Happy New Year greeting to you to today. I wish for you and us all the very best in this scary time.
For the first time I can recall, this is a year I enter with some considerable dread. On a personal level, I am fortunate to be in a position where I can look forward to good things and good times. But the bigger picture? Well, that feels increasingly bleak.
I know many of us feel the same way. So. All the more reason for us to share the good things, make some fun, share inspiration, and above all take the actions we can as individuals to make the world a little better. Or at least a little less scary than it might otherwise be. And to remind ourselves (and believe) that we can make a difference. I hope we can educate, inspire and support each other.
To that end, it came to me as I pondered whether or not to make any resolutions for 2020 that one word captures much of what I feel about 2020.
So much held in that one small word.
Enough already! (the referendum, the elections, the lies….)
I have enough (clothes, money, food, goods, housing, friends, family, confidence, education, self-belief …..but others don’t)
Enough is as good as a feast
Enough and no more
Enough is all we need
This is all the resolution I need for the year. I hope it will help guide me to:
- reduce my footprint on the earth
- let go of things I don’t need or love
- help support those who don’t have enough
I hope you’ll come along for the ride and join in with me on some of the projects. Some of them are things I’ve already started, and will continue with (more in later posts on how I did with my 2019 challenges). Others will be new to me (but almost certainly not really new – most of the things we can imagine already exist somewhere, which in itself is inspiring).
In the meantime, my sincere thanks for reading my blog for another year, and for your comments and support. They mean a lot to me (and are one thing I can never have enough of!).
