What 2012 Brings for me

Well a new year is upon us.  For me, it brings with it all sorts of exciting possibilities!  I got an idea from “The Organised Housewife” (http://theorganisedhousewife.com.au/) and put together a simple little poster of words that relate to things I want this year.

Create – I want to create more.  I love sewing and have been making stuffed toys for the last few months.  I want to keep doing this and expand into making clothes.

Cook – I want to enjoy cooking, not feel that it is a chore.  I received a new recipe book for Christmas from my in-laws and I’m hoping to find some new inspiring ideas!

Fun – I want to have fun spending time with family and friends.  Time with my friends is little and far between, so I’ll make more of an effort to see them – even if its just for a quick coffee!

Plant – I want to revive my veggie garden which is currently hiding under a thick bed of weeds.  I also want to get to work on the rest of our garden.

Learn – I want to learn more – whether it be new recipes, how to sew clothes or continue my on-line spirituality course I started 3 years ago!

Grow – I want to grow as a person, and help my family to grow.

Play – I want to play more which I guess links in to the Fun part.  With plans to have kids, I can’t wait to spend time playing with my own baby.  It also means I want to spend more time doing things I enjoy, and less time doing housework and chores.

Fresh – Looking at things from a fresh point of view, buying fresh foods, making our own food (bread & pasta!).

Live.Laugh.Love – I love this quote and I thought it summed up what I want 2012 to be all about 🙂

I currently have the picture set as the lock screen background on my iPhone, so I will see it every day. Let’s hope I can live up to my motivational poster! 🙂
