"We spend January 1st walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives . . . not looking for flaws, but for potential." ―Ellen Goodman
Some love January because it welcomes that slow down after a crazy holiday season and others love it because of that fresh feeling they get when opening a new planner that’s waiting to be written upon. Whichever camp you’re in, I think we can all agree that it’s a good time to take stock. A time to take a look at the things we want to carry with us from the past year and the things that we need to leave behind. It's also okay to feel a little let down because this year hasn't completely washed away the realities of the world as we've entered the new. Be easy on yourself, acknowledge your feelings and try to remember (even as hard as it sometimes may be) to look for the good around you. Sometimes the littlest things can bring the joy that we need to lift us up. So while you’re cleaning house, making plans + and prepping for a new year ahead OR while you're in the depths of overwhelm and despair, here’s some tunes to keep you going.
This month’s playlist is one part upbeat and two parts positivity + pensive. A little music to put a pep in your step and give you a dose of motivation as we head into 2021.
