Life with Zozie January 2017

Hi all, so good to catch up with you and I thought today I would do a bit of a ‘my latest’ type post, it feels like a good way to say hello and get you up to date with some of what is running around my head.

January is often not an easy month is it, I LOVE Christmas and as such although start the new year with a fresh start mentality I think it still is not the positive boost to me that November and December is, in fact I love Autumn so much and Winter can sometimes feel not as fun BUT I am determined to embrace every single season and its joys and what I love BEST about winter is the COSY aspect.

Put your feet up, with a hot drink! I am having a challenging day reader  – yes EVEN ZOZIE POSIE is not infallible and today has been a catalogue of annoyances and stresses, and some days you are just that bit more vulnerable than others, – I know I am , but there IS a SILVER LINING , this IS going to be a POSITIVE piece, its what I am here for! the POWER OF PLAYLIST lands in your lap!

What’s it for you? not many of us feel too unemotional about music, I think it is because music is a way to transmit feelings and it can be so powerful and so LOUD (not too blasting ideally I Know is BEST ..I do know!)

Music can transform us, it is like alchemy! –
