Good Morning 2014! Come on in, take a seat and get comfy because it sure is going to be a full one... I LOVE IT!
A New Year brings with it a clean slate. The opportunity to begin a new year with solid intentions - resolutions if you may. 365 days ahead to make a difference within ourselves, our lifestyles, the world! Last year I focused on making a Life List of things that I wanted to do. I didn't place a time limit as I wanted to be realistic... Life does happen in between resolutions, goals and lists. I did manage to tick a few things off and am promptly setting out this new year to keep ticking that list.
After visiting the lovely Bron and discovering her choice of resolution I too have decided to add to my Life List by choosing a word to live by this new year.
Great! I thought. Easy!
Until I started to think of what the year ahead has install... Sunny will start school. I have a course to complete and a day job that supports my crafty habits. I have a little on line shop in that is still in its development stages and thoughts of taking part in a handmade market. This may seem manageable but throw in family life and you year suddenly becomes full.
I was contemplating 'create'. I love doing nothing more than creating and would happily spend each and every single day among my crafty mess but a girls has got to be realistic. To juggle it all I need balance.
Something many of us struggle to keep. Balance between family life and work. Friendships and hobbies. Daily madness and relaxation.
This is the year that I support my little girl transition into the big wide world of school (frankly I'm scared shitless but I know that she'll be fine!). This is the year that I work my bottom off and continue chasing my dreams. This is the year I keep on creating and hopefully turn it into more than a hobby. This is the year that I step out of my comfort zone and embrace new challenges in the workplace and within myself. This is the year that conscious 'Balance' will come into action. Reaching a happy medium between things that must get done and things that I want and dream to do...
So with all that said, what one word will you choose to help you stay grounded and true to yourself this New Year?
Whatever it may be make it grand or keep it simple.
Embrace new opportunities that rose with the sun this morning and run with it!
Happy New Year!
