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! 🙂
