It's been a rough couple of years.
On the 31st of January 2019, many of us had big plans for 2020 and for most, they didn't quite turn out as wanted.
It'd only be natural if you're a bit cautious about your ideas of and plans for 2022 - what will this new year bring?
More lockdowns? More aggression between sides that disagree? More political unrest? More losses? Finally, your dream holiday? A chance to visit family? It's impossible to predict.
There is one thing you can control though - your mindset and attitude - and with those tools at the ready, I can predict with accuracy what the new year will bring:
Your life, your choice!
Happy New Year from me to you and thanks for reading along with me in 2021.
This blog post started as a project, inspired by Seth Godin, and was meant to launch 1st of January 2021 but I kept delaying it until May (hence why today's post is the odd number of 236). It's been a fun challenge and I wholeheartedly appreciate the support and kind comment I've received. My posts aren't always spelling mistake free or perfect but that's because I honour, stand for and promote a culture of imperfection. People ask me how I find the time and why I'd want to do this every day for free and that's because I also believe in generous contribution. It's important to note that whatever I share is not a universal truth and I'm not trying to convince you of something that doesn't align. These posts are here to simply challenge your mind and perspective, not to change it necessarily, but to give you a quick mind-gym exercise and to check in with any presumptions you're making. I try to be kind and gentle with my own ideas as radical kindness is very important to me.
May you be happy, may you be well, may you be safe, may you be peaceful and at ease.
This is a daily, micro-blog, taking less than 2 minutes to read, offering you insights into how presumptions, beliefs and stories shape our lives and worldview, for better or worse.
