New Year, Same Me

In my mind, I had absolutely written something here since 2020 turned into 2021 but I didn’t and so here we are. My 2021 started quietly – I spent the day before cleaning and running errands and was sitting on my couch, freshly showered and oiled in the new year.

Just like all the other years before this one I want to continue to move forward. I want to continue to work vigorously on setting boundaries and speaking from my heart with kindness but with the knowledge that the only authority on what I want to do is me. I want to read more and maybe cook more from my multitude of cookbooks. I’m continuing to move my body, often in ways that surprise me and so I’m going to keep happily doing that.

I want my business to grow – to charge what I know my time and talent are worth and know that I’m going to receive it because it is what God wants for me. I want to consume less and save more. I want to spend more time outdoors and in the company of people I love (post vaccine!). I want to keep reminding myself how much joy writing gives me, especially when I’m able to look back on it later and do it more frequently. I want to send more snail mail because mail is lovely and fun.

I don’t feel like any of these are actual “resolutions”, just a loose pile of thoughts that were tumbling around in my head that now live here for me to revisit. Happy New Year!
