I gave up the notion of Resolutions many years ago as it seemed to be done simply because it was the done thing. I would list all the things that I should/ought/must do. Possibly do them a couple of times then drift off onto something more interesting. Usually another craft project or something involving tea...
For a few years instead I have listed my hopes & dreams for the coming year. Then at this time of year review what happened. And laugh myself silly at the disparity. The unexpected pregnancy for example.
For the last couple of years I have discoved the notion of a Word for the year. There are a few people out in blogland who have written about this. Christine Kane has a list of word possibilities which I find useful. So now I need to decide what word I want to carry me through this year. My last year's word I finally chose in about March, so as you can see I am totally on the ball with this stuff!
So, do I continue with this or move to another word. I wonder if any of us are truely are present all the time, there always seems so much planning and sorting that needs to be done. Starting this blog has helped focus my attention to the incredible beauty around me. But I still manage to beat myself up for my failings. I look at my 'delight' banner and use it to give myself a hard time when I am not feeling the delight! oh the irony.
