It’s usually around this time of the month when Christmas trees, decorations and the holiday ‘diets’ shift away as we start tackling the first month of the new year. The festive slump beckons and it’s natural to feel it at this time. Following a high of festivity, the slump after it all ends can feel inevitable, yet it can be an opportunity to focus our minds on the festivity of a year yet to come.
After a somewhat slumpish 2020, the hopes for 2021 are high. Although its’ uncertainty looms, we can be sure that our outlook will always be something in our control. Regardless of what’s going on around us, we get to chose what lens we look at the world with. Life is always going to be full of unexpected, difficult situations, but what lens do we use to see them?
