What a great start to 2016. There isn’t a breath of wind, and it’s so hot outside that I can barely breathe. I love you Wellington!
2015 was a year of ups and downs, with challenges that kept on rolling in right until the very end, including a Christmas holiday that didn’t live up to expectations.
Yes, expectation can sometimes set us up for disaster when things don’t go according to plan, but the more I realise this the easier it is to let go.
I’m also in the middle of Spring cleaning—better late than never, so I’m sorting out things that I don’t need or want. I used to be so much more emotionally attached to my stuff, but it doesn’t do anyone any good if that stuff ends up mounting in visible piles on shelves and floors, creating stress every time you see it.
While it’s easy enough to close the door and pretend that it isn’t there, eventually you have to open the door and face the reality of that stuff collapsing on top of you—or no longer being able to even open that door.
What I’m trying to say, is that it’s always good to front up and deal with reality, no matter what it is.
I’m not usually one to set myself New Year’s resolutions, but my goals for 2016 are: to take things as they come (without putting too much pressure on myself), and to keep my doors wide open…
What are your goals?
Wishing you all a fantastic 2016!
