The New Year is almost here and resolutions are being made (and most probably will be broken) all around the world.
How many times have I written down a list of things I vowed to do or not do? Countless times. How many times have I seen things through? Never.
If you are anything like me, you are good at making plans but not so good at seeing them through. In the last few years, I’ve wanted, amongst other things, to :
– Lose weight
– Exercise more (or just exercise)
– Make more art
– Take care of myself
– Start a blog
– Go out more, etc.
In spite of that, I find myself weighing more than ever before, barely exercising (at least I love walking), almost never drawing, painting or bookbinding. I have a hard time making time for myself and I’m mentally and physically exhausted.
So this year, I decided to cross one thing from my past lists – I’m starting this blog. The idea had been floating around for years now but I was too scared that I wouldn’t know what to write about or that no one would read it to actually start.
Today, I’m starting this blog for me.
To encourage me when things get tough.
So that I can look back and see how far I’ve come.
If anything I write strikes a chord with anyone, YAY!!!! But this new adventure is, first and foremost, for me.
If any of you join in the fun, you can expect the following topics :
– Family (especially pictures of my Peanut)
– Simple living
– Zero Waste
– Green living
Let the fun begin!
