I just read a Facebook post by my sister. Looks like she has a lot of milestones ahead and much to do in 2012. She has a lot of energy and is very vibrant. Good for her! Looks like her year will be filled with a lot of activities.
Funny how siblings can sometimes be so different!
I started the year quietly and slowly. I would like to ease into the new year, but I know better. I was away from work for the last week of the year. It was been extremely relaxing. I couldn’t have asked for more.
I know the moment I get back to work everything will take off very quickly. My calendar will be full and I will be extremely busy. I savor the moments of quiet whenever I can take them.
Years ago I decided not to make resolutions for the new year. It turned out to be a significant decision. I came to the realization that resolutions are not just for the new year. There is responsibility in this as decisions to improve one’s self are on-going. They can be made any day and renewed every day.
Sure, there are some things that I would like to do in the coming year. I used to play music on a regular basis. I stopped a couple of years ago. I had lost the desire to play. I had to let that part of me go for a time.
That part of me is stirring again. It’s something that I suspect I will explore. It doesn’t mean I’m inclined to play publicly as I had in the past; however, the fact that I’m sensing this part of me is important. I need to listen to that.
There are also areas in my life where I could use a bit of a push. I don’t need to make any resolutions. These hurdles are staring me in the face so I just need to get moving! No surprises there.
I started this blog as one means of being creative. I’m enjoying this expression. I know I’ll continue. I don’t expect to post every day, but weekly is do-able. *Thank-you to all who follow my journey.*
I can’t predict what the new year will bring. I’m okay with that.
You can call it a trust walk, or a faith walk. It’s important for me to acknowledge this. It’s at the center of who I am.
No matter what, when I wake up every morning I intrinsically know that I have one more day to bless and to be blest.
Have a safe and prosperous new year. Make it a good one, no matter what you resolve to do.
