Every blog I go I see lists of goals and plans for 2014. And every time I ask myself if I’m going to write a post like that. No, I’m not.
In 2013 life threw me so many curve balls and things went so different than I hoped or expected, that I want to start 2014 with an open mind. A real blank slate.
O fcourse my mind is overflowing with goals like taking better care of myself, loose weight, stay on top of the cleaning and declutering, blog more, knit more, sew more, live greener and thriftier, and so on. But I’ll keep that list to myself. Sort of ;-)
Do you know of the “one word” resolutions? I choose words every year, but usually I forget about it after a few months. We’ll see how that goes this year. I don’t even really have a word yet. I know what I want, but I can’t find the right word (and this is not a language issue, I can’t in Dutch either).
Calmth, peace, rest, content, let go… I think I mean that I just want to stop getting myself worked up over things, both important and very unsignificant. A reader on my Dutch blog chose “acceptance” as her word. I think that comes close to what I mean too…
How about you? Do you have a list or just a word (or a bunch of synonyms)?
