your next big adventure

As we ease into 2021 and recover from the ravages of 2020, Harriet Minter suggests we start with a ‘gentle celebration’ on page 17, assuring us that ‘we don’t need the fizzing stimulants of a buzzing party to find joy’. Gentle sounds good. Our cover star, Andrea McLean, is listening to the whispers. ‘For every “what if you fall” thought, there’s a “what if you fly” whisper, she says on page 18. She is walking her talk – making her big leap by leaving Loose Women to focus on her dream. If you set the same goals every year but never progress, learn from coach Kim Morgan, who helps a woman build a strategy for consistent action on page 32. Our Dossier (page 48) builds on this with a guide to creating…

POSITIVE PRESCRIPTION Jackee Holder’s column, ‘Write the bad, feel the good’ (November 2020), struck a chord with me. After 13 years , I a blog years ago my experiences and what I had learned. I found this process to be cathartic, and it helped me process some of the grief I hadn’t even realised I was harbouring. I have managed to achieve a lot despite facing adverse circumstances, so incorporating the positives into my writing also awakened me to my own power. I hope others can also benefit from putting their experiences into words, as described in Jackee’s column.

MY PHOTO REFLECTS the transition between seasons. I struggle with the lack of light in winter and, during autumn, I fear the dark inward turn everything takes. A walk in the woods with my sons and seeing how excited they were about the autumnal colours changed things. I looked through their eyes and all was transformed. There is light in autumnal colours, teaching us to be grateful for what we have and nurture ourselves on the journey within. I am thankful for nature’s lessons, when we open our senses to them. I will walk regularly to build resilience and be in sync with nature for my wellbeing. Geeta Would you like to showcase your photographic talent in ‘Psychologies’?
