Happy New Year! It is 2020.

You are here. While the entire world is celebrating the New Year, you may be going through the hardest time of your life…. a sick family member, a death, loss of a relationship, moved to a new country as a refugee, laid off, you are alone.

What ever be your situation it is more than likely that your situation will not look different between 11:59 pm on Dec 31, 2019 and 12:00 am on Jan 1, 2020.

Here are a few things you can do or it could be a few things you may have already done… do it again anyway.

Say thank you sincerely.

Hug someone.

Visit your parents.

Wear a clown hat.

Find someone a job.

Cook a meal and invite an acquaintance.

Make someone laugh.

Enjoy silence.

Enjoy your own company.

Dance like everyone is watching and you don’t care.

Cry. Out loud if you need to.


This too shall pass.

You are OK. You are loved and you are lovely.

What ever you do, be mindful.

Happy New Year 2020.
