I don’t do New Year’s Resolutions, in fact I don’t do New Year Celebrations! At least not in the traditional way that I see others celebrating. And I am not going to give you a long list of ‘tips’ or ‘advice’ – you are a grownup and have done every New Year in your life time too! Instead I am just going to share…
Three words that I apply to my year ahead. Three words that I apply to every piece of my life: Family, Relationships, work, business plan, physical, material.. Everything! No list of to-dos that will get lost within daily inspiration, no list of to-dos that will hold me back from something new. No list of to-dos that I can look back on and see exactly where I failed!! Uggh not a great feeling! Three Words that keep me both focused and open at the same time. Three Words that bring clarity to every decision that I make and to every goal that I set in front of me. 2011 my Three Words were: Others. Love. Evolve. Sitting here reflecting once again I can clearly see I have hit it spot on in the past 12 months. That’s a great feeling!
I have not set my final Three Words for 2012, I will take that time on New Years Day and it will be the first entry in my new (unlined) moleskin and I may just let you know what they are xo
This New Years Mike and I will be puppy and house sitting, nestled in a beautiful secluded spot surrounded by all the colours, sounds and aromas of nature. We will reflect over the past year and take all of the ‘good stuff’ into 2012 with us , nurture it and hold it close to our hearts and let it just be. The ‘not so good stuff’ we will leave it right where it happened, in the past and not look back… And we will finalize our Three Words.
This New Years we had both wanted to steal some time just for the two of us in a little bed and breakfast in the Adelaide Hills for a few days but we could not find a place we loved within our budget! Then the perfect offer; “How would you like to come and hang out with Eva (the puppy) for a few days while we are away?” Guess where the (gorgeous!!) home and puppy live… Yes in the Adelaide Hills!! Having a puppy to cuddle and walk with is just the sprinkles on the on the cupcake for me!!! (Did you note how my 2011 three words applied here too?)
Where ever you are and who ever you are with I wish you all the love, hope and peace your heart can hold, I wish you a year of inspiration, growth and bliss and I dearly hope your dreams come true. I would love to hear your thoughts on New Years Resolutions and how you are bringing in 2012.
Let’s make it our best year EVER and do our best work surrounded by people we celebrate and who celebrate us!!
