I returned refreshed and wanting to be domestic (well, a little any way, let's not go loca), as well as feeling oh so super clear.
I have a rough plan of action (and non-action). To achieve a couple of big things that I've, painfully slowly, been working on. I know many people jump in with NY resolutions, but I prefer to take the Winter to reflect and simmer. And simmer away I have.
My philosophy for this year is about Quality.
More precisely, quality over quantity. I huge life-long issue for me. Always wanting to do more. Either achieving my goals and feeling burnt out, or just as often, always busy and yet never accomplishing much. It incorporates the focus and simplicity that I've been nurturing throughout the previous year.
Some motivations (not keen on the word goals)...
work on my book
take many photos
consider promoting my art
read more fiction
never, ever compare my achievements with other bloggers
change the world in small ways
nourish my body
nourish my body
It may sound like a nice sweet list. But if you know me at all, you know these are all significant shifts. Some difficult ones. All necessary ones.
I've also come up with a fortnightly blogging plan. Blogging is a big part of my days and future aspirations, but there's no way round it that it takes a lot of time (if you're a conscientious blogger and comment on others' blogs). I can't blog and not comment, feels selfish. And I love commenting. But I don't want to stop blogging. So I'll blog every 2nd week. And take a whole week away to pursue and focus on other things. We'll see how this pans out.
Astrologically, this year won't be the tough task master of last year, (knocked most of us sideways, huh?) but it's still going to require perseverance and work from us. I hope you have found clarity, or at least some, to get you moving forward this year.
