Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡
I sneaked quietly out of the strange year 2020, and also sneaked quietly into the new and unknown year 2021. I actually slept out of 2020 and into 2021. Not because I thought 2020 was something to not celebrate, or something to not be grateful for, or not to say goodbye too 💛. And the same is for this new and unknown 2021,- I really do welcome this new, sweet and unknown year, and it is also nice to celebrate a new year, a new start, a new beginning on it’s own way 😊. But I sneaked out of one year and sneaked into a new year simply because I was exhausted and so, so tried 😴.
It has been some of a year this 2020. A year that I think most of us not had in mind at all one year ago. I had different goals and plans, wishes and dreams, even some small hopes for 2020. And I need to admit I’m still not even close to reach them,- but I have at least started. Hopefully it will be better and more possible for me to try to reach them this year. This unknown 2021 I just whisper nice and softly Welcome to 💚.
I know many will probably not be grateful for 2020, and also think it’s strange that “someone”, like for example me, can be grateful for the year 2020. But I have different things to be grateful for during this very different year, a year with changes and challenges I didn’t see was coming at all one year ago. I knew it would be changes and challenges, new experiences, new possibilities and new knowledge, but I didn’t expected quite what it all was, and special not the way “it all” became. I don’t think most of us did . But still I choose to be grateful instead of feeling sad, disappointed or unhappy for this year that now has been.
It’s “showed” up a “new” virus that changed our lifesituation totally, not just in our home and life, but for the society in the whole world. It’s called a “pandemi”,- but I have some different thoughts about the whole situation around this pandemi, to be honest. And to be honest, – I really don’t like this new lifesituation we all are living in either. But I don’t think, unfortunately, there’s very much I can do about it. Except for trying to do my best of it.
It has been a very difficult year for most of us, but still I feel and know I have a lots of good things to be grateful for during this year, and I also choose to focus as best as I can on the good things during this year.
Even during the not to good days there can in a strange way a tiny positive thing or two. If we choose to take a good look, or just choose to turn things a bit around. Easy? No,- I really know it’s not easy. Sometimes it’s even a really “deep dive” “down under” or inside you for even trying to find a tiny little touch of something positive or “magical”. But in most cases and situations there’s always something you can turn around to something positive, just even a tiny little bit. But a tiny little bit of something positive is better and more then nothing 💚.
I have most of this year been living together with my children, not all three at the same time, but one or two of them together with one or two of their friends. That was not my plan for 2020. 2020 should actually, in my mind, be the first year in my adult life when I was going to live on my own. To “find me” and not just the “mammi me” 😊. It didn’t quite became that way 😊.
I feel and I know I have a lots to be grateful for when it comes to this “living together with my children again”- situation, even my children are young adults and should been able to live on their own. But the corona- situation did change some of my children’s plans too.
There’s so many that even have been able to see their children or grandchildren this year. I have been able to see my children, talk with them, hug them, and live together with all three of them ❤. I have been able to spend a lots of time together with my children, and their friends too 🧡. Something I’m very happy and grateful for, even there was time and days I was a bit tired of having so many people around me “all the time” 😊.
It has been a year filled up with restrictions. New restrictions all after how the green or red “corona- numbers” changed.
Sometimes it feels like living in a silent war. Sometimes it feels like our freedom is removed away from us. Well,- our freedom has been changing a lot during this year. But I need to admit that after closely 3 months with curfew during the Spring 2020 here in Spain, it’s actually felt like a kind of freedom to be able to walk a bit around “here and there”, even when we have bedtime- restrictions between 23.00 and 06.00 here in Spain at the moment.
I don’t like to use the mask, a mask I have restrictions for using all the time when I’m not in my home 😷. And we have actually lived with this mask- restriction for over 6 months now. But it still feels and is very unnatural for me to use a mask in this way. I’m not sure it’s going to be or feel natural for me either.
In its own way it has been a “silent” year with not to much “happenings”, but still some different “happenings” at the same time. And in a very strange way 2020 went very fast too.
We have been living in Spain for around 7,5 years now, but 2020 is the first year during all this years we didn’t have any holiday guests from Norway to visit us. No one. No friends. No family. At the same time I have had more people “living” in my home this year then other years.
I have no idea what 2021 will bring of mostly anything or nothing. I know there will be some new changes, some new challenges, but also new possibilities, new wisdom and new knowledge, even some new experiences in life too. There will also be a lots of July and happiness too ❤ But I have no idea what. It’s actually just to wait and see what’s happen, what’s comes up and try to handle it as best as possible 💚.
And I know I will try my very best to reach my different goals and dreams, plans, wishes and hopes this year. But I felt a bit like I was taken a bit with suprice in 2020 and the new “lifesituation”, the different restrictions and the a bit unexpected changes in my life. So I in away lost a bit focus on my “things and stuffs” for a while. And it’s not easy to find your own dynamic either when you share your days and weeks, even months with “new” people, “new” habits 😊.
I have no New Year’s resolutions, but ….. :
I hope, wish, dream, will work for, create plans for and do my best for to reach my dreams and goals: I hope I will manage to get my children and my things and stuffs from Norway to Spain this year. And I also hope I will manage to renew my driving licence and buy my own car. I hope I will manage to save up enough money to go to the dentist, as well as pay back money I have borrowed from my friend. I hope I will manage to work a bit more with my textes and blog, and maybe even earn some money in it. And I hope I will manage to paint creative paintings and fancy and nice glassbottles that’s “touch” people’s souls in some or another way. Maybe even be able to sell some of them? I hope I can live in this home to the Spring 2022. And I hope I’m “back in business” with my workout, and I hope I will still have “all” my jobes too. And maybe even “the love of my life” will shows up during this year? And I hope I will manage to save up enough money to maybe find a new home during the Spring 2022.
Anyway, – what I do know is that I just can do my very, very best to reach my dreams and wishes, goals and hopes. But I also know that thing can change “on the road”. Like it did in 2021. So I need to admit that I have that in my mind too. That also this year can be different from what I have in my mind at the moment.
And I hope, wish, dreams that my children will continue to be happy in their life with whatever they want to do and like to do 💙💙❤.
And I wish you all the best for 2021 🧡. Try to find and focus on the positive things during your days. I know it can be difficult, and I know a day can have more negative things then positive now and then too. But a positive focus gives in general a positive attitude, results and responses 💚.
I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog 🧡
See you soon 😊
