The days between Christmas and New Year can often feel like a strange space, as the festivities (for those who celebrate) are over and the previous year draws to a close. It is, for many, a time of anticipation in terms of the year to come: and also a period of reflection, introspection even. This can be something of a double-edged sword, of course. Time to think – and that impending calendar shift into a new year with all the expectations that come along with it – can give rise to any number of fears, anxieties and misgivings. Our job this week is not to feed them. Take a little time out to pause and reflect, by all means. Understand where your fears come from, give them a name, work out how you might allay them: but try not to take them with you when you step over the threshold into 2023.
Have a good week and stay safe x
