Happy New Year, friends! 2016 I’m kind of glad to see you go! Not that I ever want my time to go by any faster and not that I need the start of a new year to change the way things are going, but sometimes just the thought of a fresh year is encouraging. While SO many amazing things happened in 2016 (my designs were published in print TWICE, I was able to design floral pieces for two amazing workshops which has been one of my long time dreams and I’ve made so many wonderful new friends)- it was also a year of unexpected growth, busyness & overwhelm. Since I’m pretty much a planner at heart, those unexpected events inspired my 2017 word- heal. So much of my life needs this and it’s what I plan to focus on most during the next 12 months. To be honest, I’m not sure exactly how that’s going to play out but I have some ideas up my sleeve! Starting with getting back to working out…Pilates here I come!
I’m going to add on a bonus word because it keeps coming up so often, so I think I need to focus a little extra on it too. Acceptance. It’s been something I’ve been working on this past year as well, but will try to up it a bit this year! I’m going to accept that I can only be one place at one time. Accept that I can’t always make everyone happy (but wouldn’t that superpower be wonderful lol). Accept that I do need extra hands to help out because I know what happens when I take on too much alone (it’s just bad all around lol) And so many more little things.
As for 2016’s word, delegate- well I did try and did get some help for a short time. It’s something I need more time to think on and find the right people to surround myself with. This was a huge challenge because I’m horrible at delegating, but am not giving up on it!! I believe everything happens and comes into play when it’s the right time. I’ll be so excited when this time comes!
