Weekly Round-Up: The New Year Edition


Time for this week’s round-up of the best of the blog posts which I’ve read over the past week. These are the posts that have moved me, taught me something, inspired me, and which I’ve wanted to share with you. Don’t forget if you have written a post which you would like readers to see, just leave a comment below.

Welcome to the first blog round-up of the year.

I love that Philippa is continuing a tradition that started a decade ago in the blogosphere – that of choosing three words to guide the year ahead.

Not three words, but one sacred word is the choice Abigail makes to guide 2020.

JanetChris, DeeJanaConnie, BarbaraJuliaKimberlyTerriJoAnnTracyBritt and Wendi are all in an end of year/start of new decade reflective moods.

Emily recaps 2019 in her latest post.

Some practical tips on setting positive intentions for the new year from Nancy Seibel. See also Karin‘s post for setting new year’s resolutions.

A January link-up post from Naomi as she looks towards the new year.

A post celebrating a special relationship of friendship, love and support from Maureen.

An invitation from Julia Barnickle to start the new year with ease.

Advice from Amy on how to tell your children about inheritable cancer risk.

Finally this week, I leave you with some words from Ilene, which I think could serve many of us well in 2020

The year 2020 is my year of hindsight, to help me find the foresight, to live in this moment in a way that’s just right for me.

Until next week,

Yours with much love always,
