On 1/1/12 I posted about my plans to "Live Simply" as seen here and it's made me reflect on whether I managed to achieve this or not? Part of my time was fulfilled in a simple way of living but by half way into the year my motto changed and became "Simply Live" as the second half of the year became heavy and filled with anxiety and fear of the future.
With strength in my faith and support from family and friends we made it through the rocky ride and here, on the precipice of 2013 I have a strong sense of hope and optimism for this fresh new year. After all, I am an optimist at heart.
I am not one for New Years resolutions because I never stick to them! Instead, I plan to try and strive to be more mindful of taking care of my/our physical, emotional and spiritual health.
I believe that if we can keep these strong and balanced, then we can be brave and feel equipped with adequate armour to live a purposeful and meaningful next year.
Sometimes, so much easier said than done I know but I think it's all in me being mindful and a bit more self aware when I make choices.
Here's to wishing all of you a really richly blessed 2013, may it be gentle and sweet and memorable in whatever comes your way. May kindness prevail through every thought and deed that we do and may we have courage for those sharp, twisty bends and bumps that we may have to endure.
Sending you all light and love and humble thanks to all my wonderful bloggy visitors, your generosity, empathy, inspiration and kindness has been so uplifting over this past year and once again I am grateful that I have had this place to share my hopes, makes and dreams with you xox
Go gently into the night
