I like to create a theme for myself, built around a word or a notion that fits where I am in life and where I want the next year to take me. The story I want to write for myself. And this year especially seems to be the blankest of pages waiting for life to scribble itself all over. Change is the new normal in my world...my sports mom life is over, my youngest is heading into his last semester of High School, my job is ending and I will never again have a crappy Christmas (that's a story for another day)...so I'm left with trying to figure out what I want....and what I've figured out is that I want more. In all caps....MORE. More of what is good.... more taking care of me, more financial security, more of my handmade business, more writing, more making, more of my path, more health, more fitness, more travel, more of my children and grandchildren, more family, more of my besties, more taking chances, more time well spent, more peace, more happiness, more fun, more love and more life...my life, the one I choose, so much more of that. MORE...which means I also want less...
Less worry, less over thinking, less sadness, less feeling powerless, less clutter of all kinds, less of what is bad or heavy and oh my goodness....LESS WHINING... less complaining about what is wrong and more fixing it so that it is all right. Less thinking I have no control when it's actually my life in my own hands...Less allowing what feels like an itchy life sweater... I think you get it...More of what is good so there is no room for anything else...filling up on MORE
"Turn your face to the sun and the shadows will fall behind you"
This photo by @sacraluna on Instagram caught me this morning and along with the proverb are my 2018. Wild Daisies growing in the sun...shadows behind them. That is how I feel and want to be, growing wild, face to the sun .....
The best of everything to you all this year, I hope you will stay with me for the MORE to come. Plot your course and come with me. <3
