I have not made ANY resolutions this year. I have NOT set any major goals to achieve either. My reason being that if I don’t do the things I have vowed to I would I feel like a failure and look back with disappointment.
This year a few things have popped into my head that I would like to make time for, but my life wont stop, or I wont feel like a failure if I don’t really get the chance to do them. I hope that makes sense.
So here goes:
** Move More…. now due to my ME/CFS I cant throw myself into any sort of exercise as there are days where just getting up out of bed is a struggle. But I have it in my head that I would like to move more and by that I mean hoover the front room, do a half hour of ironing, go for a short walk to the shop, clear out a cupboard or just boogie to my favourite song.
** Crochet/ Knit…. I cam lucky enough to be able to do both after going on a course last year to learn crochet to which I am now addicted! But I haven’t hardly picked up a hook or any needles since about November last year, not because I didn’t want to but just because there was so much going on. So I would like to get back to it- even if I manage a quick 10 minutes or even just a row! I have been lucky enough to be able to sell some of my items so maybe concentrate on those things just so I have a purpose to it.
** New Skill…. I did this last year with the crochet and I totally love it now. But I do have a sewing machine going idle because I’m not confident enough to just get on and give it a go. So I am going to get my friend round one day and get her to show me the basics of the machine and teach me some sewing skills, not for any great purpose but just to have something else I can enjoy doing and maybe make some accessories for my home.
** Blog More…. I have loads of stuff rushing through my head but I never write it down and then later when I get on the computer my mind can go blank and I lose the will to write anything! So I would like to put a bit more time in on the blog as it is something I really enjoy doing, but it is easy to let a lack of confidence take over. I would like to write more and in turn make my photography better and improve on my technical skills ( lack of skills being the major reason why I do not tinker with things on there- even plugins!). I will probably try and get more involved with Linky’s too as I enjoy seeing everyone’s posts for different linky’s from posts to pictures.
THAT’S IT. No big major life changes or possibly out of reach goals that feel more overwhelming than invigorating! All of the above ideas for me will see me enjoy my days a little better especially over the dark winter months while everyone is at school and work, but on the flip side if time goes past and I haven’t managed any of them I don’t really think it will make me feel as any sort of failure in my eyes or anyone else’s.
What have you got planned for the coming year?
