And the song for today isn’t Christmassy at all, it’s another song by Joakim Lundell I promised I’d share, made in collaboration with Sophie Elise (or Sofie Isachsen) as a vocalist. As you may remember, he’s Swedish, but Sophie Elise is a Norwegian celebrity and influencer, as far as I know she started off as a blogger, but is also a model, singer and actress, according to Norwegian Wikipedia or at least that’s what I was able to understand with my Swedish. 😀 I must say I really like this song, it’s just very nice. 🙂
I have a niggling feeling that despite my love for Irish language there hasn’t been much Irish language music that I posted here actually. So here’s the Irish version of “Silent Night” in ENya’s exquisite performance. I just love it so, so much!
OK, time to catch up on some music. 🙂 There is so much great Christmas music out there, and since it’s still Christmas season, and will be until 2nd February, I will throw in some Christmas songs/carols once in a while, and because I love Enya so much, and she has so much great Christmas or simply winter themed music, this winter I’m going to focus particularly on her music when it comes to my Christmas favourites. Hope you’ll find them enjoyable as well. Also I must say that at times like these, when I feel particularly anxious, and can’t do much about it, I find Enya’s music very helpful and soothing. So here’s the beautiful Christmas song, or maybe carol actually, called “Journey Of The Angels”. 🙂
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. 😀
