2021 The New Year is UPon Us

“Let go of all that holds you down, the next three hundred sixty five days are for you.” – Emily Byrnes

“To everyone… a new year is UPon us. Let’s make it a Great One!”
Although firework displays were cancelled in Melbourne and gatherings are down again to just 15 people indoors…I have still so much to be grateful for.

Happy New Year to all of you my dear friends and family. Sending love and virtual hugs and fireworks from downunder Melbourne to wherever you are ❤️

For the month of January, we are invited to join Becky’s SquareUp Challenge #1 and my word for today is Upon.

  3. What a clever post! Such a shame about your fireworks being cancelled. I live in Sydney, and was lucky enough to be able to see our fireworks (albeit shorter than usual) from the safety of my own crowd-free apartment.

    Lovely capture. This was the first New Year’s Eve I spent entirely alone, but it wasn’t as bad as I imagined it would be, in fact I ended up wondering what I’d made all that fuss about in previous years. However, I shall celebrate doubly this year’s end once we are through this pandemic and out the other side.

      It really just depends on one’s outlook in life. If we think positive, then things will turn out good. Have a great year Maris.
