Happy New Year!!

Written by Tiffany Bell

January 2, 2022

It’s the first of the year!!

WE WAS OUTSIDE! Kinda. Semi-outside.

My sincerest hope is that on January 1, you were able to look back over the past year and remember how awesome it felt to reconnect with family and friends we hadn’t seen in at least a year in person. I hope vacations were taken, moms and dads hugged, weddings held, engagements announced, new baby’s sniffed and snuggled and online friends got to meet in person.

For myself, I got to do ALLADAT! Vacations, beaches, fairs, visits with family and friends, family reunions, impromptu turn ups, dinner on the grill, buckets o’fireball, beer gardens, wine, cornhole, and all manner of conversations funny, deep and sometimes poignant.

I will say the pandemic brought me closer to my city.  It genuinely hurt when our residences were dying from covid and the streets were empty, everyone afraid but trying to do the right thing.  I found myself following our town numbers and keeping track of when it was “hot”.  And now I am so proud of Brockton – not only because of its current efforts at recovery, but what’s in store for the future.  The pandemic brought so much creativity to the forefront, new restaurants opened and are opening, new artist are being discovered and hopefully, you are remaining on top of the changes. Its OUR city!  Make your voice heard – the most effecting politics, is local politics.

Since it’s officially 2022 the retreat from holidays and return to schools and office buildings begin again.  Before you become entrenched in what is ahead – physically returning to an office building, getting our children mentally ready for school, maybe starting or leaving a new job, focusing on your passion, hell, food shopping for this week – think about what you are going to do to keep yourself healthy.

We always make a “New Year’s Resolution” on January 1, but no one ever checks in and makes adjustments for changing circumstances or acknowledge when you’ve reach some any of your goals.  And here’s the thing – as I was typing up this post, I realized I met some of my resolutions. My resolutions at the beginning of 2021 were geared toward not being lazy with my dreams and passions. Following them, pursuing them and jumping at opportunities when they are presented to me in life.  If we (me) are being totally honest I kinda NAILED THEM. And I don’t know that I really acknowledged that out loud until this post.

So GreenTree crew, we are starting a new tradition. I encourage you take a minute and picture an empty blank canvas in front of you, and imagine, you had to fill that blank space with all the best feelings and events from last year.  Once you have it filled in to your satisfaction, think about how you are going to bring those best things into 2022.  What do you want to invite more of into your life? We are going to check back in on this topic in a few months, deal?!?!

Remember to be kind to yourself, be gentle to your body  and be responsive and nurturing to your body’s needs.  Instead of cleaning your house furiously because your refuse to cry, leave those dirty dishes in the sink and go to your room, and have a shoulder-shaking, snot-dripping, soul cleansing cry. And after that, if you still feel like cleaning, go do it!   

Happy New Year and as always, peace and power!

    This is a fantastic blogpost, Tiffany. Thank you. Last year was the worst of my life…the love of my life leaving and then demonizing me to make sure there was no opening to come back. But I had the support of many friends to help me get through it. Participating in local politics (where I was allowed to) also helped cement my dedication to our city and its incredible diversity of residents. On Christmas Day I had the humble pleasure of serving food to the poor and homeless. One of my resolutions this year is to deepen my hands on volunteer work wherever people will accept me. Sometimes hard to do when your name has been dragged through the mud. But I will persist because the goal is to help those less fortunate than me. And, of course, to continue yoga lessons with you. They are a real tonic for my soul and boyd.

    I don’t know whether it’s just me or if everybody else encountering problems with
    your blog. It seems like some of the text within your content
    are running off the screen. Can someone
    else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them
    as well? This could be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Appreciate it

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s
    both equally educative and engaging, and without a
    doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something not enough people are
    speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I stumbled across
    this in my search for something relating to
    this.

    Hello there! Quick question that’s totally off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird
    when viewing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.
    If you have any recommendations, please share.

    Cheers!
