….this is the year I turn 29. The last year of my twenties will be full of closure and reawakening. Getting rid of negativity and sorting through the hard stuff and coming out refreshed on the other side. I will take the time to smile more at my children and my husband. I will practice yoga full of intention and focus. I will learn patience, practice it, and, in doing so, teach it. I will laugh not only at the miseries and ironies of life, but also at the pure joy of it.
….this is the year I take full responsibility of my life. I realise that there is no else to blame for the things I don’t achieve, for the things I grasp at yet don’t reach. I know I hinder myself with all the excuses I make in my life. I will take a deep breath when I wake up and be thankful I am alive to cherish the day. I will take a deep breath at night and be happy with who I am. I will take the time to organize my thoughts, my ‘to-dos’, my life. No more excuses.
….this is the year I take the reins. I will no longer wonder what it’s like to run for 1 kilometre, or two or three. Instead of pushing away activities because I’m tired, I’ll push away laziness instead. I’ll take my children to the ocean even if it’s cold outside. I’ll play outside for hours. I’ll teach my children to respect our earth and relish in the wonders it brings. I’ll photograph the beauty of it all, but sometimes I’ll be having too much fun to take my camera out. That’s okay. Memories are in my heart and my mind, not just in a photograph.
….this year I will live in the life I want to live. No more excuses. The grass is only greener where I water it.
ps. What does this year bring for you?
