Happy New Year 2020

I wrote the first part of this at the end of 2018.

In 2019, I intend to step back even more than I already do from the drama of life. The meaning of life to me, is simply, to live.

So I promise myself I will live my life to the maximum.

To all my family and friends and to those people I have yet to meet, have an unforgettable new year bash, and live your life as if tomorrow never comes.

Happy New Year πŸ₯³

It’s the 30th of December, 2019 and I’ve just finished a 13 hour shift. The long shifts I have worked throughout the year don’t actually fit into the slogan ‘Live your life’ but sometimes life events simply gets in the way of living it the way you originally intended.

This year has a little over 24 hours to run it’s course and it has been very eventful to say the least. As an individual, a couple of friends have passed away. As a family, we have stumbled through a few lightening storms and health scares and come through the other side. Work responsibilities have taken over much of the year. A holiday to Turkey has been the light entertainment for the year.

I faced up to the reality of suffering from anxiety and have learnt to manage it and cope as well as I can.

I found myself crying for no reason other than I felt the need to just let go.

I’ve met (Virtually) some genuine and amazing people here on WordPress and realised my life and the problems I have faced, pale into comparison when I have read some of the incredibly honest and moving life stories on WP.

So, here’s to another year passed and another year yet to reveal itself.

Happy 2020. I hope everyone I talk to and follow on here enjoy a year that’s filled with joy, happiness and realised dreams.

Cheers to everyone

  2. I hope your new year brings lots of laughter, fun, and peace, John. 2019 seemed like it was challenging for a lot of us (I know it was for me), but hopefully, we learn to take it in stride and make the new year better than the last. All the best. ❀

      1. Thank you John! And I enjoy reading your stories. You’re a very talented story-teller. (Which is an art in itself.) Forgive me if I’m a bit slow at responding – old age! Ha! (Something I wouldn’t wish on anybody.) I agree BTW with your concluding thoughts about the drunk giving you advice to look out for number one first being right…

    Thanks for sharing your tales – I’m sometimes shamed by your honesty – you eloquently portray life – and the meaning of it for you!
    May 2020 be easier… may the joy come quicker and may you, your family and trusted friends share more happiness than you can cope with!
    I have embarked on an outreach – friendship sharing drive – via our Saffer Worldwide platform… do join on occasion… I’d love to see you around – and I’d love it if you want to occasionally contribute to the monthly magazine!
    Thanks!! 😁πŸ₯‚πŸ˜„
