Let’s make a wish

*
Let’s make a wish that we as humans appreciate what we have and make a step towards making this Earth,
this Universe a better place to live in.
Lets take care of ourselves and those around us.
Thank the valiant efforts of doctors and healthcare workers
along with researchers of the world making a breakthrough in vaccine,
showcasing the resilience of human spirit.
With our positivity, let’s heal the Corona Positive, absorb all the pain and emerge powerful.

So my four wishes for this year –
Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, Stay masked and stay strong!

~ Jyoti Batra {Why you need to think before making a wish in 2021}

Let’s change

 

THE SEMPILL THINGS

The worst year yet? A lot of people would say so: “I’m glad to leave 2020 behind”, or “F*ck you 2020”, or whatever the trending caption of the moment is. 2020 has been a difficult year, but without it we wouldn’t be where are now. It’s shaken up all of us. And sometimes we need a shake-up. 2020 changed be me for the better in many ways –some good things, some great things, and some painful things that I wish would have panned out in a different way. I haven’t even come to the pandemic thing yet.

I’m hopeful for 2021, just as hopeful as I was at the start of last year. 2020 delivered in many ways and I’m pushing for ’21 to do the same. The attitude of wishing last year to go to hell is beyond me; the shift from one day to another makes no difference……

Happy New Year. SIGH.

Being chained for some more months we should be happy when we are still not infected by that terrible disease. Though we shall still have to be on the safe side, avoiding contact with too many people.

When staying in our little bubble, what do we want more. Today there are so many technological wonders that can bring people from all over the world to our doorstep.

We have the facility to be in contact with so many people all over the world and can share our thoughts with them. But we now have also much more time to read books and to watch films on our small or big screen.

So, let’s enjoy the life that we are privileged to have!

Coronavirus Diaries

It’s January 2021. We are way into the future and China has unleashed a whole load of hell into the world with Covid-19. We’re all still social distancing like mad, washing our hands, wearing masks, going nowhere, doing nothing, getting fat and lonely. No holidays, no hugs with friends, no eating in restaurants or going out dancing. We’re not even popping out for a cup of tea in a café. It’s a shitty life and I don’t see how it can change any time soon what with the new, ultra-transmissible mutation of the virus in rampant circulation.

But there is hope. Vaccines are being given. Snowdrop shoots are peeping out of the muddy grass, and I’ve bought a new armchair and sofa bed on a 0% finance deal from DFS. You’ve got to take happiness where you can get it. Plus:-

  • The children are healthy
  • I am healthy
  • We have…

#Omens&Symbols . . . Letting 2020 out

Let 2020 be carried away by strong winds bringing it out of our stratosphere.

New Year’s Eve…a blessing for all of us who await the light this night..whether that be the bright light of fireworks (televised only!), the still light of prayer, the inner light of hope, the new light of dawn… {Text https://www.facebook.com/1567391160191012/posts/2925267964403318/}

    In the New Year, you carry all the experiences of the past years
    and that is the greatest power of every New Year.

            New Beginnings

            To get to feel a better year we shall need to take a huge jump, because we shall still have to be patient until enough people would be vaccinated and before we shall be able to say goodbye to the Corona pandemic.
            Let us look forward to bettering safe times.

            Life Is Full of Sweet Spots

            “Celebrate endings —

            for they precede

            new beginnings.”

            — Jonathan Lockwood Huie

            change defines new year

            prospect of fresh start invites

            robust leap ahead

            We can’t all succeed

            It would be nice if we all could succeed in all the things we want to see accomplished. It would best be to be realistic and always to see matters from the right perspective and by a righteous self-evaluation.

            ++

            Additional reading

            1. The road to success is dotted with many tempting parking places
            2. Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement

            selon nerias

            Only few are meant to succeed

            So it goes in creative fields

            Only few will reach the top or earn enough to keep things up

            That’s just how it goes

            For every star there are uncountable comets

            But somedays a comet is the main attraction

            Even though it doesn’t shine as bright

            A difficult year soon to forget and a Kindness Calendar

            2020 has been a difficult year in so many ways.

            This year many have suffered with uncertainty, anxiety, isolation and challenges with their financial situation, health or relationships.

            Though we had not many opportunities to meet friends in real life, luckily we had the cool media tools like Zoom, Hangouts, Jitsi meet, Meets, Messenger and FaceTime to have some virtual contact and be some balsam against loneliness. Many did not see directly a solution for their bad feelings and how to continue. They should know they were and are not forgotten.

            One thing that can hold us together and help us get through is kindness. Although we can’t change our situation, we can choose to respond to others (and ourselves) with kindness. And when we’re kind, everything goes better. We help others, we help ourselves and we encourage others to be kinder too.
