Hello 2021

Happy New Year to you!

It has snowed during the night and it’s all white outdoors as I write this post. Just now, I looked through the window and I saw a few snow flakes falling down from the sky. I’m in the kitchen, the coffee is brewing, I’ve waffles on the toaster, the Christmas tree is still up with the lights on. I can say I’m having a pretty cozy Monday morning, perfect to be the first one of the year.

New year, new possibilities! As usual, lots of plans, decisions, resolutions…, but in the end, the turning of the clock is only a formality, we are still the same, and the world is moving at its own rate.

2021 started with a makeover on my blog. It was the first creative task I did on the 1st. I changed the theme and moved things around. I will focus on photography this year, so this new theme is more appropriate than the previous one, which was a kind of writer’s blog. I added a new profile photo to depict a personal style to my site.

I hope to keep up eating healthy food and journaling to maintain a strong body and a peaceful mind. As I get older my body and mind are getting more synchronized, so when one isn’t doing ok the other endures the consequences.

TRUTH is my word for the year. Sometimes I let my true-self go out of focus, so I can please others and be kind, other times I say yes when I wished to say no, it’s enough! I’ll try to be truthful to myself in the first place and accept the fact that it isn’t my duty to make others happy all the time.

I have been choosing a word for the year since 2014. It is a quick way to make me grounded and make me focus on what I need to work on.

I would love to know if you’ve chosen a word for the year, or if you have made some resolution.

Wishing you a lovely first week of the year!

  1. Refreshing! I’ve not heard of “word for the year” until this season. One did come to me during the week, but it has disappeared already! But there are so many great words… today’s seems to be “adaptability” 😀 Stay blessed. Looking forward to seeing your photos. I have loved taking photos since I was 8 years old.

  2. My Word for the year is Intention. My plan is to come up with a self-care intention each day , whether it is to take time to meditate or to read for half an hour. I often find myself running around doing things for my family and neglecting myself.
