Happiful Online January Magazine
"I think it's fair to say that this year has been full of unexpected twists and turns. I doubt many of us predicted that we'd be accessorising facemasks to our outfits, ordering from apps in the pub garden, or learning to express ourselves as much as possible with only our eyes – 'smizing' (smiling with our eyes) as Tyra Banks calls it.
As the nights draw in and the temperature drops, it can be a reminder that all we want is to be close to our loved ones and hold them again. We might feel nostalgic for winters past, as we acclimatise to a new way of celebrating the festive season.
It won't always be easy. Some days will be really hard. But, as put so beautifully in the explainer on komorebi on p26, even on the darkest days a ray of sunlight can break through. We just have to watch out for it, and enjoy our moment in the sunbeam for as long as it lasts.
And that's what this issue is really about. It's been an unforgettable year, and while it’s one many people may be happy to put behind them, we want to pause and reflect on the moments of positivity that still shone through.
In the feature on p60, hear from some of the incredible essential workers who gave their all through the most testing and extreme circumstances this year, and celebrate their selfless and kind natures. "
Enjoy the new edition!
