Since having children I feel far better at envisioning achieving goals that could take months than I ever could before because it seems I can see time in new way, it feels more physical, I can see it pass through the changes in my children, through the rapid drift from one season to the next, so as we approached the new year I started thinking about all the things I would like to change about my life and how I can go about making those changes over the coming weeks and months.
I have put together a Pinterest folder of images and links relating to some of the things I want to do and to help inspire me to get them done. I would love it if you clicked on the image to take a look at some of my ideas. Let me know what you think.
I love making New Years resolutions don't you? It's a fresh start, anything seems possible, you have the whole year ahead of you, and let me tell you, I have made a few, so many in fact that I have had to categorise them! My first category is Self Care, and I am beginning the year by completing the 21 Day Junk Food Challenge; no fast food, crisps, chocolate, sweets, biscuits, cakes, pastries, white bread, fizzy drinks or alcohol. I have really pigged out this Christmas and feel like I need a bit of a cleanse. It hasn't been a great start though, on the 1st of January I accidentally ate a packet of crisps and a bar of chocolate. I know what you are probably thinking "how on earth could you forget!" I guess it's because eating junk had become so habitual that it was just automatic to pick them up and eat them without thinking. I am not giving up though. My altered perspective on time reminds me that one day out of 21 makes little difference and it is still worth doing in spite of my lapse of awareness.
I will share my other resolutions over the coming weeks (one is to blog once a week!) I think it will help me stick to them if I have shared them in a public arena! Are you sharing your New Years Resolutions if you made them? Leave a link and I will take a look.
Here's to a brilliant 2014 for everyone!
