as 2010 draws to a close, most of you dearies are thinking about
hmmm, i'm not big into making promises that i can't keep, especially for myself.
lose weight (not a good option for my skinny butt), get organized (are you serious? have you met my brood? have you seen the horse?), stop spending money frivolously (with money tight like it is here, groceries are frivolous...not gonna happen either), cut back on chocolate intake (does anyone REALLY have this on their list? ridiculous), etc....
all very lovely resolutions, all very predictable in their demise.
so this time, i'm going to assign 2011 a theme.
a friend of mine suggested it.
i really liked the idea of having a theme to live by throughout the year.
no promises to break, just an idea to guide you throughout the next 12 months.
i chose BREATHE.
it encompasses quite a bit:
try to be calmer, more laid back (the kids will appreciate it.),
take time for the things I want to do for myself (like a relaxing trip to the hair stylist...this mop is one unruly mess!),
accept failures and just move on.
and quite literally...breathe.
i held my breath trying to knit 20 stitches successfully.
i need to learn how to just take a deep breath and relax.
to breathe in some fresh air more often by taking the kids and beast to a park or just sit outside with them and read a good book.
i need to learn how to pause, breathe, and accept the fact that life is imperfect.
what are your plans for the new year?
resolutions or themes?
