And what have you done,

Another year over

And a new one just begun.

Sorry for a bit of plagiarism there, but I kind of feel that those lines sum up the feelings there are at this time of year. I have had some epic years and some that have been absolute shit shows; but now is always the time to relect.

And I don’t know about everyone else, but it makes me feel really emotional.

There are normally lots of recaps of the year on TV too and you can’t help but remember that moment in time through rose tinted glasses. In England we have had the football, Emma in the tennis and the Olympics. We also had the final of Strictly Come Dancing last night and that ended in many tears.

However your year has panned out there will be some amazing things that have happened. You’ve probably forgotten about them because it’s so much easier to cling onto the bad bits. Spend some time remembering those good bits and use them to stay hopeful.

Much Love

Rachel xx

    It is a time of reflection, isn’t it, Rachel? Both the sad things and the happy things have impacted us, and I think it’s worth taking the time to think it all through. If nothing else, it helps us set our goals for next year, I sometimes think.

    A year that was like and unlike any other. As some scientists have noted, orbits around the sun are an arbitrary measure of time and really don’t mean all that much to us, at least not biologically. However, ’tis a time to look back on the small successes and the losses and plan how do do things differently in the year ahead. Peace be with you.
