Usually by this time, I have a list of resolutions and things I want to accomplish in the new year.
And I HAVE done a lot of thinking - as you know
But getting back from travelling is always disrupting and I had a granddaughter waiting for me when I got home who will be here until tomorrow.
So.. the lists, the new projects, the PLAN will have to wait... because I need to read books and cook and play with my girl.
That said - it's not on a checklist but could be - Connections with People..... Being present with my granddaughter is more important than making a list because I can do that any time!
I do have areas of improvement - everyone does..... and need to build more good habits to go with them
but I think this year - with a bit of a checklist - I will set up very small incremental easy changes in a positive direction. Habit building.
I do that anyway - but keep thinking a little accountability and tracking might be good.
Certainly I have gotten pretty detailed with my crafting.... so maybe in other areas I need to be cognizant of improvement too.
2015 has been a good year.... my focus on personal JOY and ADVENTURE has led me in all kinds of directions and provided me with a good base of happiness and new experiences. And I've made a TON of progress in both cultivating / appreciating relationships and determining personal boundaries.
My areas of improvement (I guess INTEREST might be a better term) though remain constant:
PHYSICAL HEALTH - nutrition & movement GOAL: keeping my body in as good shape as possible as I age
MENTAL / EMOTIONAL HEALTH - Simply put, what makes me happy? GOAL: to be happy, alert and interested in living until I die.
RELATIONSHIPS - how to cultivate relationships with the different layers of people I am close to
FINANCIAL HEALTH - How to have enough money. Period. Encompasses bringing it in and spending it out.... and gratitude / satisfaction with enough.
.. I will look back at previous years... I am sure there is more..
and there are concrete things that I am not sure where they go.... like focus on my craft / art.... like gradually building a little bit of a business with some of the things I do well (if not on demand!).... like getting a better handle on decorating my house and entertaining... like keeping my marriage in a happy place...
Anyway - lots to ponder on this day....
But for now
I'm off to do some food prep for tomorrow and help dress a doll :-)
I can get a little more serious tomorrow!
Happy New Year's Eve!
