Favorite Time Of The Year

I know, you think I’m talking about Christmas, or whatever December holiday you choose to celebrate. I’m not. I’m not even talking about New Year’s Eve. I’m talking about the week or so in between that’s my favorite. Why you ask, well let me tell you.

A few reasons. Starting with the fact that my paper agendas usually start January 1st. And I usually buy them in October. And I usually anxiously wait to use it and write all my stuff in it. Such an agenda nerd, it’s a necessity to me. Id like to mention to all my tech  friends that I still use my electronic agenda. I use both.

Anyway, more adult reason # two is that this time of year lets me flush all of what I didn’t like this year away. I reflect and focus with motivation and intention on the possibilities of the year ahead. I ask myself what do I want to do this year… and down that recent line of questioning I asked myself what I wanted to do with this blog this year. Erase, or dive in? What am I getting out of this? What do I want to give? What’s the point?

The point I believe is connection. And by connecting I stay accountable to the lifestyle I am trying to create and it keeps me present. Aware of the daily actions I take and the person I actively am trying to be and become. It’s a dear diary of sorts. I know for sure that I want to talk about things that matter to me, and that are important. And of course it will do with things that I manage with daily. And I’d like for it to be light and entertaining.

Health and nutrition have always been important to me. I find a lot of information about eating healthy or clean for individuals. And then I find a lot of information about feeding your family. There isn’t always a direct line between those two things. We have a household where both parents are very active. We eat very healthy, clean at times (there’s a difference) and try to feed the kids very balanced and nutritious meals. I don’t cook 4 different meals to accommodate everyone. Very often I’m asked about the meals I prepare during the week and I asked for advice. So I though I would start there at the core, and family life and my own life around that.

Hope you join me along on this ride.

Happy 2017

 

Power To Focus

Power To Focus

Georgie has a good point here. Nurture what is important to you and watch it grow. Focus on what matters and loose all the distractions. Your reality becomes what you make of it when we choose to live mindfully and purposefully. Its is so important to do our part in steering our own lives.

Lately I’ve become more in tune with myself and what is important to me. More focused on myself, and being true to that person.  My focus is on nurturing my own identity and stepping completely into my own shoes. Uniquely me.
