Hello. So how are you doing in 2014?
If I am honest I was pleased to see the back of 2013. I find it quite hard to admit that, as I like to see myself as a positive person and that does sound kind of negative. But then again, one thing I learnt through the trials of 2013 was that being honest and true to yourself is more important than being positive for positives sake.
For the first time in many years, this January I didn’t set any New Years resolutions such as lose weight, get more exercise, do this , do that, climb a mountain or pilot a plane. Instead, I made one that under pins everything. “. To be kind to myself in my self talk. To acknowledge that I am okay just as I am. In other words just to love and accept myself”.
Last year was a journey along a very bumpy road and we were pushed to breaking point on more than one occasion. I did have New Years resolutions, goals and plans. Lots of them – in fact I think I had very high expectations for 2013. I should have guessed that someone was having a joke at my expense when I started out the year with an illness that took me out for the first three months!
This year, I take with me the knowledge that plans are what you make, but life will have its own plans for you. These may or may not be the same as yours – and that is okay. This year, I see the months ahead as a blank sheet and I am not going to fill them up with details. I am going to enjoy seeing what evolves and try to live much more in the here and now. I realise that that is truly all you really have. The past is the past. It is gone. Nothing can change that. The future is just that – the future. But the now, this very moment is yours. You can choose to make it a good one, to enjoy it or not.
