Saturday January 2, 2021

I’ve been feeling down of late. The slog of lockdown in the winter and the post Christmas slump has left me firmly sullen, not to mention the added stress of balancing homeschooling and working now the schools are shut.

But tonight is New Years Eve, and a thought has just flashed across my mind. In a year as horrific as 2020, do I still have things to be grateful for? And the answer is yes. Even in the bleakness, I managed to write a mental list and it has lifted me right up, even if just for a few moments.

So, dear Moodscopers, shall we stave off blue January with a little positivity? Share your gratitude in the comments.

I shall start: lockdown has meant more quality time with my children, it has reinforced my closest friendships and I have returned to work after 5 years of childcare.

With love and wishing you all the very best possible for 2021
