What about 2021?

Last year I made a list of New Year’s Resolutions or goals as I like to call them. I think resolutions are things we make, that aren’t achievable and we don’t achieve. Whereas goals are things we know we can achieve or we aim to; and let’s face it resolutions are more like a wish list whereas goals are a shopping list. I thought I would throw together some ideas of goals for 2021.

Looking Back: 2020

It’s been one hell of a year. We’ve had the good, the bad and the ugly. So much has happened in the last year, in fact, it feels like so much longer than just a year. I want to take a moment to look back on what has happened in 2020.

Lockdown: Why I’m saying no to dating apps atm.

I have more time on my hands now, and being stuck at home without seeing my friends I sometimes do feel lonely. Especially while binge-watching on Netflix, Prime or Disney+, with pretty much everything I watch having some form of romantic storyline running through it – even the ones I didn’t think would do… And while I could download one of the many dating apps available, I just don’t think this is the time.

Lockdown: The Update

Its been a while since I posted but despite being sat at home with time on my hands I have struggled with motivation and inspiration. Every time I finally have managed to sit down to watch something it just sounded depressing or whiney – not what I was aiming to write. I am currently feeling the ‘inspiration’ at the moment, or maybe it is just that I have 3 exams looming next week that I really should be revising for. But now we have an exit that has more contradictions than not, I thought I would consider my experience of lockdown so far.

I’m Sorry

So I ask everyone. Those with and without mental health difficulties. Open your minds and consider the daily struggle, the second-by-second struggle that some people face to get up in the morning, get dressed, go to work and be that person you know. I ask for everyone to use their strength, passion, voice and determination to fight for better support, rights and compassion for mental health.
