Firstly Happy New Year Lovelies.
How quick did the Holidays fly by?
And now we are back in January.
A month that is full of possibilities, plans
hopes and dreams.
As always I have big dreams most of which
centre around "experiences" rather than things.
I have gone back to a practise I used to do when
I was a teenager and which worked liked magic
(more of which I will tell you in my next blog post).
I want this year to be about
a couple of things. One is to live
more in "the present".
Without being too "woo-woo"
I do have problems living in the now. My mind
is either anxious about the way the future is going
to unfold and how I can control that
or I am trying to rectifying something
that happened (or that I should
have done) in the past, and it's all futile.
So let me start with this month-January.
Yes, I am going to start new things and
new practises, but there is NO RUSH.
I don't have to have it all figured out.
I don't have to have all my ducks in a row
before I take action.
I don't need perfection in my life.
I just need momentum.
I am also going to continue enjoying
the warmth of open fires and "cosiness"
during the dark mid-Winters.
I am not going to become impatient
with the arrival of Spring. It always
comes, so why fret about it's arrival?
I will continue relishing being indoors,
cosy and snug.
Embracing the Danish way of doing things;
practising the "hygge" life.
I will allow my mind to wander without
snapping it back like a taut elastic band.
I will plot and plan adventures; for exploring
the unfamiliar. For learning new things and
meeting new people.
I will continue to experiment with conscious
living and just see where it takes me.
This is the year of no rush. As long as
I just put one foot in front of the other and keep
moving forward the rest will take care of itself
……..it always does ;-)
I would love to hear how you would like 2017 to be for you.
