With only two weeks to go for this year I thought it was the perfect time to look back, and think about what’s ahead.
My word for 2014 was slow, I really wanted to take it slow this year. Did I? Did I do what I wanted to do? Well, I dusted the lomo cameras off allright, and I did shoot a couple of rolls of film. But they’re still not developed. That’s taking ‘slow’ to a whole new level… Time spent on social media remains a slippery slope. I guess social media-time is just something I’ll always need be very aware about. I did develop my knittingskills and made more drawings and illustrations. I baked more cakes and cooked more healthy meals. I ran 5k but did less yoga. I played more with The Little One, but I wish there was more qualitytime with K. And I’m not quite sure I went outside more to enjoy nature…
Even though I did stick to some resolutions, overall I feel I didn’t exactly take it more slow this year. I’ve been taking a lot of care of other people, with a family/household to run and a very demanding job, and combined that with buying a new house, a tiring first trimester of a new pregnancy, and deaths and illnesses of people I love. I feel like I’ve not really been living this past year, it felt more like surviving.
So my word for 2015 is me. Yes, me. I need take more care of me. I need to be more aware of myself, of how I feel, of how I am doing. I need to be doing well and enjoying life and doing things I love, I need to set priorities straight and make more time for my creative side, and then I can be a good mother, girlfriend, daughter, friend or colleague.
How about you, what’s 2015 going to be about for you?
