Well, here we are again, January, it feels unbelievable really that another year has come back around so quickly… I have a lot of questions to ask myself like – did I achieve all I wanted to last year? no. Did I meet some of my goals? yes. Have things cropped up that I never expected? hell yes! Can I change the past? no. Can I embrace the present and have hope for the future?….for sure.
Cliche as New Year posts are, it is worthwhile me noting some things that I might reflect back on when 2017 rolls around.
1. Focus is key- Distraction was something that has always plagued me although I can be highly productive, I’m also skittish at times. So this year I’m making it the year of ‘the one’. One vision, One moment, One hour, One day at a time.
2. Excellence – There have been moments, due to rushing/ lack of time and focus, I haven’t given as much as I’d have liked to tasks, people, work & many other little things in my life. I find that guilt racks me when I haven’t done my best, and I am a harsh critic. However moving forward, being confident in the effort that I have made, will be a key driver for challenging myself further.
3. Love without bars – limits, preconceptions, rules and boundaries. I don’t mean this in a romantic sense although it definitely applies in relationships. I mentioned recently that I felt a ‘closing up’ within myself, a distrust and shying away from people and interactions due to past hurts and pains, but in reality I realised that the only person this hurt was me. The weight of suspicion is much heavier then being the innocent and sometimes foolish open-armed person that I was. This year I’ll be making more efforts to love endlessly.
Another post that is more for me then you, however I’ll be having much more useful stuff going forward, and my next post will be a post from the lovely Maureen…my sister!
