Happy New Year!

So it's the first day of a new year again, and time to reflect on comings and goings (or rather goings and comings). It's been a year of growth and challenges, moving mountains inside of myself and nurturing tiny seeds and watching them grow. I did many things for the first time - making chutney, making my own toothpaste, and going on a nebuliser, - and did a few things I haven't done for a while - riding a bike, and moving house. It has been a year of suspended animation, of tying up loose ends.

This year I would like some adventure, a lot of joy and maybe even bliss. We shall see!

'Be kind to yourself in the year ahead. 

Remember to forgive yourself, and to forgive others. It's too easy to be outraged these days, so much harder to change things, to reach out, to understand.

Try to make your time matter: minutes and hours and days and weeks can blow away like dead leaves, with nothing to show but time you spent not quite ever doing things, or time you spent waiting to begin.

Meet new people and talk to them. Make new things and show them to people who might enjoy them. 

Hug too much. Smile too much. And, when you can, love' - Neil Gaiman.
