Hi there! How are you? As ready to get back to your "normal"life and routine as I am? It turns out a little celebrating and vacationing actually goes a L-O-N-G way and I'm ready to get to my regular day-to-day life. My holidays were lovely but it's kind of like wanting a little salt to balance out all the sweet.
I've been thinking a lot about my goals for this year, what I want to accomplish and learn, how I want to grow as a person and what I want to be able to look back on with happiness and satisfaction at the end of the year.
I've been inspired by Ali Edwards' "One Little Word" blog posts and class. The idea is to choose one word to focus on, meditate on and basically let influence your life for the next year. I think it'll be interesting to see how that one word could influence your 2012 journey. I've really wanted a word that spoke to me so I'm still thinking about it(or over-thinking as the case may be). But I'm getting it narrowed down and I'll write more about that later this week. My husband chose "focus" as his word instantly and it seems like a great fit for him. I think my challenge is that I have many areas/habits I would like to change this year, so picking one word has been hard. But I think that's also the point, to challenge yourself and push through the indecision and difficulty. I know that 'm also trying to get past my notion of the "perfect" word. Very often my idea of the "perfect" anything just gets me stuck and frustrated, another thing I'm working on. How about you, what would your word for 2012 be?
I'm delighted to be able to say that this is my 100th blog post! Yay! I'm planning on some changes and upgrades around here this year that I'm excited to share. I think I've come a long way in a year and hope to make even more progress in 2012! I'm looking forward to more sewing, crafting and cooking than ever before and I hope you'll join me :-)
