I’m guessing that you’re good and ready to bid 2020 a heartfelt goodbye, and that you’re looking forward to 2021 with more than just a little hope.
I could be accused of being an eternal optimist, but I really am expecting a much better new year, and I hope things are lining up to be a better year for you as well. At a time when it seems that all the news is bad news, it takes considerable effort to get strong and stay strong.
If this past year has been hard, I hope that your songwriting has been that one constant that has been able to give you some relief and enjoyment. Perhaps your music has been able to provide happiness and encouragement to others; it’s nice when that happens.
At the same time, can I suggest that you don’t have to carry the weight of the world on your own shoulders. It’s important that you get a handle on your own situation first, whatever that may be. Only then can you be a help to others. So don’t feel guilty if you have to focus on yourself for a while before you focus on the needs of others.
To all of my readers I wish the best of the new year. Thank you so much for reading my daily posts. Stay strong, be courageous, keep focused on writing better songs. It may take a while, but I think in a year’s time we’ll see 2021 as having been a year of recovery, growth and happiness. That is my sincere wish!
Happy New Year, everyone!
