My list of 19 things for 2019 was a total success. I allowed it to be a success by changing up some of the items on the list. I didn't see the point of ignoring all the things that I had managed to achieve just so that I could stick doggedly to (and fail at)… Continue reading My List of 20 in 2020
As I write this, I am feeling a strange kind of gratitude to my word of 2019. Worth is a weighty word. One that scared me a little when I chose it because unlike my word of 2018, I knew it was the right one straight away. I did not journal or scrapbook this year or… Continue reading Goodbye Worth, Hello ..?
I did two things I haven't done before with regard to my yearly list of goals: a) I changed some of the goals mid-year to align with things that became more important to me as the year went one (in the past, I have doggedly stuck to my original list); and b) I completed my… Continue reading Finishing up my 19 for 2019
At some point last school year - I can't pinpoint it exactly - I decided that I had to make a change to my working life as it was not sustainable as it was. It had been a tough year for a lot of reasons, not all of them to do with my job. Once… Continue reading What next.
As we go through different seasons in life, it is clear to me that certain things are easy to let drop. Memory keeping is something that I thoroughly enjoy as a past time but I am struggling in this season to stay on top of it. Where I used to spend regular chunks of time… Continue reading Project Life 2017
Last year, I worked through the One Little Word workshop properly for the first time (in previous years, I have chosen a word in January and then barely thought about it for the rest of the year). I really enjoyed the process although the word - FIND - never did manage to fit for some… Continue reading One Little Word – Worth
Last year, I worked through most of my 18 for 2018 list and I am feeling pretty good about what I did manage to do. I have carried forward the things I still want to accomplish (which I started last year but did not finish) and I have added a whole load of new goals.Some… Continue reading 19 for 2019
It is my favourite time of year. The summer ends and we start anew. The leaves start changing into golds and reds and oranges and the wind cools. Cardigans and boots get pulled out of the cupboard. Hearty dishes appear on the weekly meal plan. I do so love this time of year and yet… Continue reading The Shortest Season
One of my 18 for 2018 items was to get my One Little Word album prepared for the year. I did most of this early on in January but one of the cards asks you to reflect back on the story of the month so I have only just finished the prompts for January today.… Continue reading One Little Word – Find
This year I have been enjoying the Happier with Gretchen Rubin podcast as well as Happier in Hollywood. Gretchen and Liz (her TV writer sister) are creating 18 for 2018 lists and since I have been missing my birthday lists, I thought I'd jump on board. I have made most of them finite things I can do… Continue reading 18 for 2018
