Hello 2023—You look like hard work

New Year always brings with it the hope of a fresh start, renewed motivation and resolution.

We face insurmountable challenges however as a country. Cost of living, energy bills, record inflation, and the fall out from the dreaded “B” word—Brexit—starting to hit the fan.

In times of challenge however, there is always opportunity—and those who are careful enough to look will sure enough find ways not only to survive but to thrive.

It will be a difficult year, as every year is, but look for the opportunities, the silver lining, and funny side of each situation. Make the most of every moment, don’t sit around being lazy, work hard, and don’t be afraid to pursue what you want. Life is what you make it, and here is a fresh opportunity to do something new and make it a year of opportunities won—even in the face of the most severe and austere challenges.
