2017 Word of the Year
For the last couple of years I have not made resolutions. Instead I have settled upon a word that will shape how I live my life. In previous years I have used the words of confidence, organisation and opportunity. I have used the words to shape every element of my life.
This year I have settled on the word Kindness. 2016 has seen the world change. Discrimination has reigned and sadness has gripped too many. With this all occurring I truly believe that a little kindness can go a long way. Sprinkling kidness around can truly help others. I am guilty of being n a very privileged position and not using this to help people as much as I could. In the coming weeks I will be posting lists of kindnesses that we can all get involved in, but until then let the ones you care for know how much you love them.
Another element of this is being kind to myself. I often take on too much and find myself burnt out. It's important for me to carve out time for myself and spend time doing things that I love. Make sure I get outside and just walk as that always clears my head. This is so important for my own well being.
I will be spending my evening with my oldest friends in an evening of drinking, eating nibbles and talking. We will see in the new year together. I wish you all a healthy and happy new year. Please try to remember to be kind. Both to yourself and others.
