Happy New Year

Yeah, I’m a day late, but at least I am finally posting again. It seems like everything I read lately is either a review of 2021 or predictions/goals/resolutions for 2022.

There is only one resolution. I resolve to never make resolutions. Instead, I make goals and if I even reach just 10% of those goals, I feel like I’ve accomplished something.

2021 was, without a doubt, a challenge. So many changes, so quickly.

This new year’s eve, I did something I haven’t done in 20 years; I partied with people and celebrated with a White Russian cocktail. I kept my distance, wore my mask, drank sparkling cider, listened to the live band, watched people dance, took pictures, drank a toast with champagne, and saw the new year with a room full of walker-pushing, wheelchair-riding old people who called it quits at 8pm, some even earlier than that. A new friend who stays up late like I do, invited me to her apartment to watch movies; we watched two while drinking those White Russians, and then she wheeled me back to my apartment just before 1am. I stayed awake until 5.

So, we have a new year, a new page, new directions, new goals….

One of my goals is to blog much more often than I had been. My husband’s death and my sudden move kind of put blogging on the back burner. It’s not that I didn’t want to write, I just didn’t have the time or energy to do it.

So I signed up to do Bloguanary, hoping that it will jumpstart my writing again.

What is Bloganuary?

You get a daily prompt for all of January and that’s it. Your post has to be about the prompt. Just ensure you use the #bloganuary tag on your post. Since it’s a community challenge, I’m excited to visit a lot of other blogs.

Do you want to sign up? Here is the link.

I’m already behind in the prompts, so I will need to find a way to get caught up.

And here is the first prompt:

Day 1 prompt: What advice would you give to your teenage self?

Cry if you must, but then dry your tears and hold your head up high. You don’t have to believe everything everyone tells you and you don’t have to do everything everyone tells you to do. There are those who will love to take advantage of people-pleasers like you. You don’t have to do that to have friends. Real friends will like you, even love you, for who you truly are.
