It is 7 years today since I did my first blog post in 2012 on my previous blog ‘where the journey takes me’ – I have had a wonderful time, gained many new blog friends and read a lot of interesting ideas – it has been an exciting journey so far and long may it continue.
A big thank you to all those who have journeyed along with me – your company has been much appreciated as have your comments. I would love to hear from anyone who reads but doesn’t normally comment – just a quick hello would be great.
Over the Christmas period I have thought long and hard about my focus for 2019 and one word I keep coming back to is that of
It fits well with my present circumstances since I am no longer in paid work, probably retired but maybe not just yet – everything in abeyance.
I looked it up on Google…
Synonyms – change, move, passage, transformation, conversion, adaptation, adjustment, alteration, changeover, metamorphosis; shift, switch, jump, leap, progression, progress, gradation, development, evolution;
Lots of alterations and adjustments to make and with any luck a complete transformation by the end of 2019.
We have friends coming tomorrow evening so I need to make the house presentable – I have been working on it most of the week. The Christmas decorations are down, the windows have been flung open to let the fresh air of the New Year in and even the duvet spent the morning outside on the line to freshen up before putting on clean bed linen. My positivity at the moment is encouraging and I am ready to begin.
Presently I am still at the planning stage and January is the ideal month for this. As we have plenty of major projects either on the go or on the master list that need to be co-ordinated it will be a question of fitting everything in. Some of the top priorities are the decorating, installing a new kitchen and completing a few outside jobs once the weather is on the turn. Added to which we need to sort the cottage out it has been a dormant project too long now. And on the domestic front I need a new spending and saving plan, an exercise regime and of course lots of healthy eating wouldn’t go amiss…and when I have time a bit of crafting, reading and relaxing.
As my blog was always intended as a diary for myself to look back on my starting point for this year will be to review and reflect on last year and see what worked and what didn’t.
Did my focus word of the ‘Power of small’ work for me?….all will be revealed.
Back soon x
