Another night of disturbed sleep as arm still aching, Sophiecat woke me up around 6am and I decided to get up and watch a bit of Tellybox instead of doing back to sleep.
Today’s plan was to do some client work for Firecracker, I made a start on it but it was slow going.
I always find today bittersweet for some reason, I guess it’s been torn between looking at and looking forward, I decided that around lunchtime I would put my phone on Do Not Disturb until Sunday 2nd Jan as felt like I just needed some time out from the world.
I sent some of my closest friends messages to wish them well for the coming year and that I was digital detoxing for 36hrs! Not that anyone would really notice or worry but I’ve learnt that it’s best to tell a few people just so they know and if they need to get hold of me they would have to physically come to my house as my landline phone has finally died, not bad for a phone that cost me £20 over a decade ago, I will get a new one eventually, the only person who really rings me on it is my mum so we’ll just have to use Skype for now.
One thing I do every new year is rather than resolution I have a word of the year, this word I endeavour to live by for the coming year, this word usually comes to me in the run up to Christmas, this year the word has been EMBRACE, if I’m honest I’ve not sure I’ve lived by this word as much as I could but I have embraced new things into my life.
This year I’ve made many words roll around in my head over the last few weeks, but nothing really was sticking until today when I realised that I needed to EMBRACE my AUTHENTIC self and release myself of the shackles I create in my mind to hold me down – so my word for 2022 is AUTHENTICITY.
2022 – Bring it on!!
