I had an aim this year. It was to post a foreign-language music track every day. This was an aim due to the fact that the first time I attempted this in 2015, I didn’t make it due to…well, circumstances (and people) that are no longer worth discussing .
I have not completed my task this year either, and the other day I was a bit annoyed with myself for not doing it. But then I thought, should I be? Really?
I started thinking instead about what I *have* achieved this year. I have been busy in other areas: I have started a new blog, I have been learning more about being vegan and how to cook nutritious meals, being introduced to fabulously entertaining and intriguing films by my lovely partner, travelling, and preparing to move. To be honest, I have not been listening to as much music as usual because I have been so busy!
So, my promise to myself is to complete my Advent Calendar again this year during December, and then start again next year. I have finally signed up to (and been shown how to use!) Apple Music, so I can now listen to whatever music I like, and I fully intend to catch up with some more excellent tunes from around the world.
I think that will do. Sometimes, you just have to be kind to yourself 🙂
