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.
Only a few days into 2021. Only one week of work and by Wednesday I was ready for a long vacation. So exhausted, so burned out already. I guess all the mental alert with a pandemic, the (even for me as a homebody) missing social interaction is wearing at me. So I feel on edge currently and hope it will get better.
I decided to start the year with sorting through a few drawers of my closet and getting rid of a few pieces that do not fit anymore or which I don’t feel very comfortable in. Also I finally crossed off #4 of my longterm bucket list (ok only half) by getting new pans and sorting through old ones. That feels like a huge accomplishment.
To do some deep personal development work this year. Not sure if and how much I will be sharing here but I feel like it is time to look into some stuff I continuously struggle and things that keep popping up.
What is wrong with this world. With people. I hardly watch any news because frankly they do not help in living a peaceful and happy life. But at the same time I am not ignorant enough to ignore it all. So not only what is happening in the US but also strange people and weird opinions are spreading in Germany and I am worried. I am sick of it. Can everyone please use their brain cells so we can get back to being civilized?
So much for this first month of currentlies.
