I started 2021 in a new and invigorating way. I ran into an ice-cold lake with my brother. You can see a picture of me running into the water while my brother looks on like, “This isn’t cold at all,” by clicking here.
Despite current events, I am still positive about things going forward. My positivity is the product of planning, list-making, and journaling. Consuming chaos only puts the chaos in your mind.
Doing what you can to fix small problems that lead to greater chaos really helps to ease your mind and heart. I encourage you all to find small ways to make your bubble better. And, yes, something as simple as baking cookies for your friends and neighbors contributes to the solution.
My First Read of 2021
On the first, I read an amazing comic called The Picture of Everything Else. I cannot recommend this comic enough. The artwork is gorgeous, and the story is captivating.
My First Watch of 2021
Have you seen Forged in Fire? On Netflix? I’m told this is an older show, but I’m just discovering it, and oh my goodness! I’m ready to learn to make knives, people!
Give it a shot. See if you have the itch to learn a new craft after watching it. Knifemaking, perhaps? 🤔
