I started this blog with a ginormous feeling of ‘meh’. The kind of ‘meh’ that is called ‘languishing’ apparently. The official feeling of 2020/2021! 

Adam Grant from the New York Times recently explained it far more eloquently I could: 

It wasn’t burnout – we still had energy, it wasn’t depression – we didn’t feel hopeless. We just flew somewhat joyless and aimless. It turns out there’s a name for that: languishing.
Languishing is a sense of stagnation and emptiness. It feels as if you’re muddling through your days, looking at your life through a foggy windshield. And it might be the dominant emotion of 2021.
As scientists and physicians work to treat and cure the physical symptoms of long-haul Covid, many people are struggling with the emotional long-haul of the pandemic. It hit some of us unprepared as the intense fear and grief of last year faded.

My aim was always to re-inspire and re-energise myself and through a fair few blogs I was starting to getting there. 

I’m back now having made some big life changes, I’ve finally accepted my married name (its only taken 4 years) and I’m ready to consistently continue, hopefully inspiring a few thoughts to any other languishing minds. 

Now how do I attach a new domain name to a published website? Wait for the renewal and start again? Eeeeemmmm….
