My hopes for 2015
It's New Year resolution time and in the spirit of accountability I am sharing mine here.
In 2015 I plan to be more focussed than I have ever been before. Having a baby changed me in many ways but the main one was an overriding desire to create and build the kind of life I want to live, for my family and for myself. With some goal setting, manifesting and hard work I feel I will get there or pretty damn close at least.
TO BE PRESENT.
It is so easy to get caught up with the noise of life and not to be present in the now. Whether it be the distraction of the iPhone, social media and the daily tasks of life. Multi-tasking is fine and completely necessary to get shit done but it also needs to be balanced with being in the moment, listening and not instagramming the hell out of everything.
TO BE THANKFUL.
There is so much to be thankful for, even through hard times. Without appreciating what you have, you will never be content and I believe contentment is the key to happiness.
ENJOY THE JOURNEY.
My life’s mantra. Be ambitious, strive for more, work hard but enjoy each stage and appreciate the now. The story is in the journey not the goal.
Not letting that voice of doubt creep in to stop me doing what I know I can do. It is so easy to see others taking action and assume that they have done it better than I could ever do BUT no one is better than being you than you.
KEEP LEARNING. ALWAYS.
I am addicted to self development and this year I am hoping to indulge even more. I already have a few courses booked to help enhance my freelance business and I am also hoping to embark some other creative courses over the year.
LIVE MORE SUSTAINABLY.
Prior to moving into the house we did not recycle. Shock horror I know. When the whole country was avidly recycling we weren't. Mainly down to the fact that the local council hadn't enforced a flat recycling scheme that actually worked, so it became easier to throw everything in a black bag and dump it in the big old communal bin. Although I know that is a pretty lame excuse. Fast forward moving into a house and recycling is not only mandatory but has actually become a part of our daily live and we are now fairly avid recyclers. This year I want to make an effort to recycle everything we can, be less wasteful and live more sustainably.
I miss reading! I used to be a complete book-worm but now I just don't have the time. Yes, that bloody word again! But this year I resolve to try to make time.
So those are my resolutions, what are yours?
