So here we are, at the end of the first day of the brand new year, and while I am completely ready for it, I feel like I still haven't articulated, or thought through, exactly what I am hoping for, for 2014. I don't have resolutions of how I want to behave, I haven't decided if there is a project I'd like to do a bit of every single day (365 project), and I don't have one word to describe how I want to tackle the months to come.
So I've started the year by keeping my options open.
We spent the first moments of the shiny new year with beautiful friends and family. (Potential resolution to do more of this?)
We made the most of a dreary wet day by spending time together as a family cooking and eating and watching a movie. (Potential resolution to positively frame difficult situations?)
I made the most of my moments. (Potential resolution stolen off my Mum, to waste less time?)
I wrote 750 words in 750words.com. (Potential 365 or 180 or 75 project?)
I crocheted four squares of what could be a blanket, a cushion or bunting. (Potential 365 project?)
I thought about SIMPLIFY and GROW and EMBRACE and CELEBRATE. (Potential words to carry me through the year?)
And I thought a lot about the things that make me feel and act like a better person; Like drinking two litres of water daily, regular exercise, being more organised, dancing, having regular off-farm time, and date nights with my farmer boy. (Potential personal practices that should be personal laws?)
I'm so excited for this year. To see where it takes us and what we can achieve. I feel like something big is going to happen. I have no idea what it will be or even what I would like it to be, but I can feel it in my belly and it's exciting.
Hooray for the potential of the new year!!
Big love and wishes for the sweetest and happiest and most wonderful year for you.
Are you all organised with your resolutions and stuff, or are you keeping your options open and hoping for the best?
