New year same pandemic. We are close to the one year mark and when Covid19 first appeared here in Germany and gotten seriously. Eleven months into the pandemic. Can you believe it? I am not sure how I feel about it. It seems like yesterday when I was glued to the news hearing about a new mystery disease no one knew anything about. And on the other hand I feel like we lived through a hundred and ten years in the last months. And then it seems like time is on a stillstand. Whatever the outcome of it all I have a way to look back with my corona diaries. Here is to month 11.➢ KEEP On ReadING
You may know, that I give myself a book budget every year. It is not really to keep myself from buying to many books it is actually more the other way around. I tend to not buy what I would like to read and read books I can borrow or come by on a deal instead. Not always a smart move. So when the end of 2020 approached I had quite a bit of money left and I decided to buy all the books I had on my wishlist and that I did not receive for Christmas. So my reading goals for 2021 will include a lot of those purchases.➢ KEEP ON READING
I have come across the currently post on many blogs and continuously in the last year and months and I have always enjoyed reading them. So for this year I am giving this a try and will be joining the community Anne in Residence has been building.
As always I started my year by picking a word of the year (GRACE) and making some resolution. I love making all the plans and setting intentions. I often keep losing them along the way but I also refer back to those lists and check in. I also changed my practice of writing a gratitude journal. I didn’t feel it in 2020 and was a bit absent. So I’ve gotten myself one of the 5-year-journals and try this new approach.
Good Morning brand new year. Hello 2021. We have waited for you to come around. It is still early for the New Years morning and I enjoy the silence it brings. the perfect time to gather thoughts and reflect and set goals.
As always I am starting this off with announcing a word that will guide me through the new year. For 2021 GRACE will be my word. A word that sneaked itself into my list of contenders and then never let me go. I was toying with kindness but grace is more complete.➢ KEEP ON READING
And just like that in the middle of a pandemic and and a world in chaos I finish my eighth year of blogging. For me that is a big achievement. When I started this blog it was to escape a terrible job, the feeling of being utterly lost and loosing myself along the way. The blog became and still is a constant. And I love that I have a lot to talk and share even after 8 years. My drafts file counts 39 unpublished posts. I will continue to blog but before we start of the next blogging year we have look at my 2020. My eight years of blogging.➢ KEEP ON READING
