It’s traditional at this time of year to review the past year and to ponder on the one ahead. We’re encouraged to make resolutions and to start afresh. As a child and young adult I always did this and was then disappointed when I inevitabley failed to achieve the long list I’d set myself. Then one year I decided my resolution was to never make another new year’s resolution and I love the sense of achievement that this gives me each year!
Instead, what I tend to do is when a lull comes along in my busy life I use it to do a very quick review. Kind of look at my path and readjust my heading a little rather than trying to do it all in one go. I enjoy these little interludes, they often only last a few minutes, perhaps ten or fifteen, as I laze in bed a little longer than usual, but I find them regenerating rather than burdensome. Attainable rather than difficult, that’s what works for me.
We did a lot of shows, as part of Adelaide Walker, last year and decided in November that there were 3 we wouldn’t bother with in 2016. It might not sound much but it’ll be 3 more weekends to spend with our Daughter before she flies the nest. As she heads towards 19 I’m not sure how much she’s looking forward to the extra time together 🙂
