The month of January usually feels like a long preparation for the real race and once its over, the year just began.
Finally, it has ended and year 2021 just started in February for me, While most people went about with resolutions and all that, I said “Resolutions be damned!”
I’ve never followed through a resolution because Life always found a way to turn things whenever there’s a conscious solid plan, 2020 for example. 2021 is not going to be the usual stuff, it’s going to be all about making intentional effort to “work hard and play harder”.
Instead, we could make 2021 different by doing things more, getting involved and just living.
I’m naturally a playful person; it is relaxing and a stimulant. I play with kids, my dog, with friends and with myself. This actually helps boost creativity.

Celebrate your victories.
Whatever feat you won, celebrate it, write down the events that you remember and recall how good they made you feel. I don’t care how little it was, drink a toast to yourself.
