Hello 2021!

2021

I feel as if I spent the whole of 2020 writing about 2020, and so I am not going to do that again. We all know what we know. But that doesn’t mean that I can’t do the other cliched thing, and ponder on my hopes and dreams for 2021. I honestly cannot remember when last any long term plan of mine went according to any reasonable expectation – and I am not making the same mistake again. I am not setting down plans and goals and timelines and ultimatums…I am going with the flow. I know the general direction of where I want to go, but I am no longer going to be prescriptive about how I am going to get there. I’ll just enjoy the journey.

Some things are more in my control than others. So yes, I will read more and play more, and laugh more and appreciate more. I will avoid toxicity and negativity, let go of resentments and open up to all the good that’s coming my way. Certainly, if it all works out according to plan (and by plan I mean VACCINES!), 2021 will be the year my family and I try to squash two years into one. We’ll celebrate merrier, explore often, advance faster. We’ll try to not lose sight of lessons learnt, while setting new dreams and ambitions. We won’t take much for granted, and will continue to apply gratitude daily. If we come out the other side intact, having laughed louder, travelled wider, and with new friends by our side, then then it will have been a good year.

And I won’t ask for more than that.

What does your perfect life look like? Do you even know?

I was inspired by Kevin Dahlstrom to create a list of bullet points that clearly define my ideal end state life. As he says, you need to call your shot by clearly defining the goal. It’s a surprisingly insightful exercise, and it makes you question what you always believed to

The best life-hack: morning pages

My morning page ritual is an essential part of my self-care. But it’s also a brilliant business hack, too. I get clarity on strategy, what I should be working on, how I should tackle work problems and identify issues I didn’t realise I was already thinking about.

A much needed evening with a “table for one”…

I took myself on a date-for-one. I didn’t get dressed up or anything. I didn’t even realise it was a date until I was half way through my spaghetti ala something or other. But when I looked around and saw lots of fairy lights hanging above all the tables-for-2, noticed

Why I’m blogging again

I have a pattern of behavior. I start a blog, I write on it for a year or so, and then I abandon it. A couple of years later, I come back,. The last time I redesigned and resurrected this site was when Covid hit. I don’t need to explain

Karma – aka, Revenge is Best Served Cold

It’s very difficult to watch horrible, unfair, selfish people get ahead. Even just to watch them carry on with their lives, with no repercussions, as if the havoc they leave in their trail can be brushed under the carpet and never be acknowledged by them, is difficult. On a personal

50k words in November? Bring it on! (maybe?)

You know, on the one hand I am really happy and proud that I have stuck to this blog, and although I might not post as frequently as I would like to, at least I DO do :-). On the other hand, this is hardly the blog that I wanted

Cleanup

Cutting ties

I have a feeling that when I look back at 2020, that the one thing that will identify the year for me (aside from the obvious!) is that this is the year that I learnt to “let go”. Cut ties. Set things loose. And by things I mean things and
