2020 was a seriously bad year for all of us. COVID-19 terrorized all of us and it is not going away yet. Yes, we have vaccines out there but until we are all vaccinated we still have the risk of infection.
So, New Years has a different meaning this year. In previous years we set up New Year resolutions for the next year and try and complete them. It almost seems pointless this year. Instead of resolutions, I decided I will make promises from what I have learned through the pandemic.
So here are my promises;
1) To continue to put my own wellbeing first and only do extra things if I am well enough to do so and not let myself get run down.
2) To work on me physically, mentally, and educationally so that I can better myself and learn more.
3) To let those who are important to me know how much they mean to me and never let them be alone.
4) To be the best piggie mummy that ever lived.
5) To make the best use of the isolation and when I can go back outside to never take that for granted again.
6) To continue to spread love and kindness across the world.
These are my promises that I will hopefully work to keeping to this year.

So, I have seen this term batted around social media, in the street, and used by people who do not really understand what Neurodiversity is. The term that I am talking about is Neuro Divergent. So let me give you the download for this term. Neurodiversity covers a wide range of conditions including Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia, and Autism to name a few. (the notable point is that under the term autism many other conditions exist like Aspergers). Those who do not have a Neuro Diverse condition are called Neuro Typical. Neuro Diversity is simply people whose brains think differently. If you are of a certain age you will remember Rain Man and if your not of my age you would think about shows like The Good Doctor which emphasizes neurodiversity. The "normal" term for those people with any one of these conditions is neurodiverse or neurodiversity. However, as we have seen in all facets language changes. An example of this is the Q being added to the LGBTQ acronym.
As a kid, when it was your birthday you parents would tell you to "Make a wish" when you blew out your candles. I remember mine were always all over the place. I wanted to be a dancer, a singer, an actress, a soldier, a missionary, a teacher, a spy, a millionaire and many many things along this line. Somehow the transition into adulthood changes a person and what means most to them. They go from wishing for aspirations to begging for instant gratification. How many women out there "wish" for Mr Right and settle for Mr Right Here? I was guilty of it too! The saddest thing for me to realise however is that my wishes are no longer about dreams but survival! In this last month of lockdown I have kept track of my wishes and it makes me sad. I will share some of the things I have wished for. 1) to win the lottery to be able to pay off my crippling debt. 2) if I don't win the lottery, a flood to destroy my flat so I can get a full pay out on my content insurance to cl
