It seems silly to try and put too much expectation and pressure on this new year. After all, we're mere weeks into January, and already 2021 is keen to follow in the footsteps of 2020.
As with any year, there have been lessons learned, events upon which to reflect, and shining moments for which to be thankful; it’s just that this year, the shining moments are ever brighter against the pitch-black of the bad.
Allow me to indulge myself, and focus on the good when there is so much bad about.
I wanted to share with you my favourites out of that pile of 28, in the hope that you might find a new favourite of your own to add to your shelves this year.
This post is, admittedly, self-indulgent, and is more for me than you. But if you fancy getting some ideas for your own goals, or you feel like being nosey, or even want to hold me accountable, then feel free to read on.
Here's my first poem of 2019; an ode to the New Year's resolution – the human app upgrade.
2018 was my year of theatre. I don't think I've ever seen so many shows in my life! Here are 10 of my favourite (mainly regional) theatre productions from 2018.
I read some wonderful books last year and thought I would share my favourite reads of 2018.
This time of year brings out some intense feelings, and it's important for me to remind myself of the good, and focus less on the bad; to celebrate the haves, and ignore the have-nots.
I may not be hitting the same milestones as others, but I am still grateful for the year that has passed. Find out about my 2017 highlights.
