The past year has gone and it is time for a fresh approach to achieve any goals that were not realised in 2022.

The road ahead is not always an easy journey, and one of the things that makes the journey harder is when we lose anyone dear to us. Hope, helps us to look to the future and deal with new problems along the way, but without the help and support of friends in difficult times, the challenge is greater.

I think the benefit of online friends is greatly underestimated. One of my favourite proverbs is a Japanese proverb, “One kind word can warm three winter months.” It is not just what is said to you, but who says it, that can make a big difference to how you feel. People from other countries have said just the right words, at the right time to me, which changed my outlook and helped my morale greatly. Kindness generates inner strength, when it is most needed.

People who care about other people, infuse love into the world. People who help other people, bring cohesion to the bonds of society. The most valuable thing you can give to someone, is your time and attention.

May the road you travel on, in 2023 be paved with love and kindness, and your journey be pleasant and fulfilling.

    Happy new year dear Ronnie! I wish that 2023 will bring more kindness and joy and I do agree about underestimating our online friends’ effect, inspiration and kind words. Sometimes they seem to be our only light in the darkness
    May 2023 be the year you achieve your most important goals and wishes 🙏🏻💕

      Thank you, dear Huguette. I wish you well and hope that the year is good for you. A lot of people do not have the same optimism as they used to have at New Year, as recent times have not been good for many people in the world. The right words, from the right people, can shine light into the darkest soul.

        Thank you dear Ronnie! despite a lot of things happened but sometimes one positive news or event can change our life or journey. I mean look at us, bankruptcy, inflation, economic deterioration in addition to Covid 19 and Ukraine war effects, but we still manage to be optimistic as much as we can. The right words from right people can do wonders indeed.

          I think optimism is a necessity in numerous countries. There are too many people in too many countries, relying on hope, while the mega-rich syphon off even more wealth.
