Be kind, 2021...
Finally, 2020 is behind us and fingers crossed, it gets better from here.
It was an odd year for all of us, Plans cancelled, vacations postponed, celebrations done virtually...
Though it allowed me to get some serious writing done, I wasn't able to visit any libraries or bookstores. No sales or events to sell my books or sign copies.
A lot of us have had to rely on social media to get the word out on our business and products, but I for one, have missed the in person exchange... even if it terrifies me the majority of the time.
I'm shy and can't take a compliment to save my life, hopefully this will be something to work on this year. However, 2020 made me work on my fear of being in front of the camera, live, to join Zoom meetings and FB video chats, something I would have avoided like the plague before... too soon for plague jokes, maybe?
I believe a lot of us learned how to be kind to ourselves, took the time and sat back when we probably wouldn't have if the world had shut down on us. We're discovering things about ourselves and those close to us, gaining a new perspective and goal to what we want for our lives.
Wishing you all a year of patience, kindness, and joy. I hope you discover things about yourself and pick up a new hobby... or old, perhaps finish that book or puzzle you've been telling yourself you never have time for.
