This year, I can’t seem to fit my goals into a structured format. The idea of “I will do this, and that, and the other” doesn’t seem to be working for me.
I took some time exploring that concept of awake and what that means for me. When it comes time to reflect on 2013, what do I need to see in my life to feel that I was awake this year? Feel that I was more aware of the people and life around me.
Different ideas started to form. Ideas that I felt that if nurtured, would lead me/result in me being more awake. More present.
Here they are:
Simplicity. Finding peace in the everyday routine and the doings of life.
Health. Fine tuning fitness, food and my mental well-being.
Creativity. Exploring new creative outlets while reconnecting with my favorites.
Relationships. Being present and encouraging others.
I realize these seem a bit vague. I started to elaborate and realized that each area was probably its own post, so I will have to follow up with those thoughts.
Although, looking at what I have written, I love the simplicity of it. I love allowing the room for flexibility and new interpretation. And I also love allowing the room for grace.
