In with the New

“If you are brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello.” – Paul Coehlo

On New Year’s Eve we woke up to a thick layer of snow, making everything look clean and fresh – just in time to see in a brand new year.

Perfect for a hike in the still and calm, blowing away all the cobwebs and negativity that had accumulated during the last few month, mostly spent in total lockdown.

We enjoyed walking in almost complete loneliness, passing only a couple of other’s. Seeing out the ‘Old’ with a picnic in the snow felt truly amazing and we will remember this day for many years to come.

We had a quiet night in, celebrating the long awaited arrival of 2021 hoping it will bring a way out of pandemic life. This was followed by spending New Year’s Day having a long overdue clean up of my social media accounts. It felt great to delete accounts that just make me feel inferior, not quite good enough to ever give a return ‘like’ to and simply just send out depressive and condescending statements.

Each new year offers an exciting opportunity for a fresh start and new beginnings, which is probably why we all look forward to New Year’s Eve so much. No matter what your goals are for the coming year or how many new year’s resolutions you have made, ringing in the start of a new year is a moment to acknowledge…

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” – C.S.Lewis

Wishing you a beautiful and healthy 2021 and that all you dream of may come true.

Stay safe, Heike xx
