Welcome 2014. Be kind to me won't you!
Last year, I chose one word to focus on during the year, instead of making the usual resolutions that I always break. My word was Discover, and when I look back, I think I did a good job.
An okay job.
I Discovered I am the maker of my own path, that choices are my own, and if I want something, no one else is going to make it happen.
I Discovered that even though my children are growing, and becoming more independent, I still struggle with letting them go, just that little bit. They will always be my babies.
I Discovered that Knowledge is Power (actually I knew this already), and how powerful those three words can be. When Mr C (aged 11) was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease just over twelve months ago, I really focused on these words and the more I found out about what we were dealing with, the stronger I felt. It made it easier to cope being able to talk with others in a similiar situation.
I Discovered that I am not Superwoman, and that I can't do everything. Even with the best intentions, jobs don't get completed and things are missed. And of course there's never enough time, the clock is always ticking faster......
I think I can improve though, and there's no better way to move forward than a brand new shiny year with endless possibilities. Which brings me to my new one word..................................................................................................................
Although we've been in our new house for twelve months, I don't feel organised. I still haven't unpacked everything, I'm still fine tuning each room and every cupboard and the office isn't set up so our filing is a mess!
But I'm going hardcore here people, because I'm looking at routines, meal planning, schedules for chores for the kids and time management so I can get to the things I just don't have the time to do.
Thrown into the mix will be some "me" time, and continued family time, without the pressure of the mundane. I know if I feel organised, and have some sense of order, this reflects in all areas of my life.
So there's the plan and I can't wait to get started!
What about you, are YOU organised?
