Happy new year! 😊

Hi people! 😊

So finally, it’s 2019. How do you feel about it? As for me, my feelings are kind of mixed, but because last year was sort of rubbishy for me, especially the first half of it, I’m trying to be hopeful that this year will be better and more positive, although we have a proverb in Polish that says basically that what the first day of a new year will be like for you, the whole year will be like this. And if this is true, I shouldn’t expect too much good. I’ve been feeling very anxious lately, and today I’m not only more anxious than in the last couple days, feeling sort of hypervigilant and jittery, but I also feel much more down and like drained of all energy, which is a bit of an exhausting combination. It sucks, but I’m normally not overly superstitious if at all, so I’m going to try to hope it’s not going to be like this for the whole year as much as I can in my current mindset.

Anyway, I would like to wish you all the best in this brand new year. I hope lots of good things will happen to you this year, and I wish it could be one of the best years for all of you my readers, I have an impression that for many people in the blogosphere, at least those that I follow, last year wasn’t too good. If you’re making any long term resolutions, I wish you lots of strength, willpower, perseverance and energy to fulfill them and be happy about it, and proud of yourselves. And if you don’t have any particular resolutions, like me, and are more focused on short term goals or maybe just the present moment, I still hope it’s going to be a productive and fulfilling time for you, be proud and grateful for any achievements you make, and don’t be too hard on yourself if something doesn’t go as you wanted it to go, maybe that’s how it was meant to be, and this way it’s going to be better for you in the end, sometimes good things come out even from our apparent failures, or at least we can learn something new about ourselves from them and know what we are good at and at what we are not. And may all that you wish yourselves for this year come true. 🙂

So, how is your new year going so far? Hopefully not as lousy as mine. 😀

  1. Oh, what a beautiful and kind message for us!! Thank you!! It made me quite happy!

    I’ve never heard the proverb, but I find it interesting! This is the first year I’ve felt confident about, like 2019 will be a great year! And don’t worry, your year will get better yet!

    Interesting, there’s a similar idea in Judaism too.

    I’m sorry you’re feeling anxious and down and hope you have a better rest of the year.

    1. Thanks a lot. 🙂 And as for the proverb, it seems to happen often that pretty much the same sayings occur in different languages and cultures, and also there was a lot of influence that Jewish culture had on Polish, and on Poland in general, and I guess it was also more or less the other way around, so I think it could be possible that either we adopted it from you, or you from us.
