End or beginning?

Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.

About a month ago, I wrote this; I was not sure I was going to meet this challenge. I only missed two days posting, feeling quite proud about this whole back to blogging adventure. The end of the month will mark the end of NaNoPoblano2020; it will also mark the beginning of new blogging habits I intend to keep.

Given the state of the world, my mental health requires, to actively look within. The media is a poison for my soul. Cocooning myself in doing what I love is self-preservation. As an introvert, my batteries empty so easily; as an empath, I can’t help but feel the pain that permeates the air.

In short, this is only the end of the month. I will keep on blogging past November. I will come up with a reasonable schedule. Who knows? I might keep it coming daily (I did it for so many years).

Tell me, dear friends, with 2020 coming to an end, do you also feel it is the beginning of something new? or are we heading in the same direction we were a year ago? I am just wondering.

  1. Since a year ago was so different I hesitate to predict the future. The thing I have found so difficult about the pandemic is that it has taken away our ability to plan for the future.

  2. After November ends, I’m going to try to keep writing every day. My goal is to post once a week, but whether it’s journaling or working on a post, I want to write every day. It has been so nice this month.

  3. Brilliant photo.
    I often feel as fractured as that image.
    I also have to avoid the news, and am both an introvert and an empath (which is a decidedly double edged sword).
    In many ways this year has felt like ‘marking time’. I hope to be able to move forward (however small my steps are) in the years to come.
    I also wish (fervently but not very hopefully) for a pandemic of kindness to replace covid 19 and to sweep across the world. One with no vaccine.

  4. I hope we will all be heading into renewed health and that the cloud of 2020 doom takes its leave from all our lives leaving in its wake all that was bringing us down. I hope kindness replaces hate in all forms.

  5. I tend to look at time as a constant ‘now’, and not categorise them in 2020 or 2021, because when the clock strikes 12 on December 31, nothing’s going to change, really. Whatever’s happening will still continue to happen, and it’s up to me to make the best of any given moment. Kinda cheesy, but that’s my perspective on current issues.

Talk to me, I am listening :-)
