What’s Been Happening?
How did your New Year celebrations go? We had a quiet New Year’s Eve. Most of the UK is in Tier 4 Covid 19 restrictions so welcoming 2021 meant fun virtual get togethers online with family and friends. We also enjoyed some snacks and drank some champagne. We missed being with our family in real life, but we did have a lovely time.
I sent out a subscriber newsletter to welcome the New Year. If you are not a subscriber already, here’s a link to check it out. If you like what you see, please do subscribe! I’d really appreciate your support.
I’ve been welcoming 2021 by deciding on my New Year Aspirations and my word for the year. I prefer setting aspirations to making resolutions. It’s a gentler, more supportive practice and it’s really effective too.
My word for this year is Focus. I’ve got some big goals and I need to make sure that I keep my sights firmly fixed on their implementation to make them happen.
I also like to make a list of 21 for 2021, as recommended by bestselling author Gretchen Rubin of the Happier Podcast. Number 10 on my list is to keep our menus on 2 days each week completely vegetarian.
I’ve always enjoyed vegetarian meals and consider myself to be an Occasional Vegetarian. Committing to two meat free days a week is just another step in that journey. I feel it is an important one for our health and the health of the planet as well.
Care to join me? Here’s a link to some menus and recipes to get you started.
