Why have I ditched traditional New Years Resolutions?
Each year I try to set a few NY Resolutions but they never last. I forget my goals and by February I have lost what I wanted to achieve in the year. I have a mind that struggles to focus. I guess I like to have my hands in all the honey jars. I'm just like my star sign. I'm a pisces. My sign has one fish swimming one way and the other fish swimming the other way. So I tend to feel conflicted in which direction I'm going, it gets quite overwhelming. I have the problem of setting unachievable goals that leaves me unmotivated and disheartened. Every year feel like I want to quit before I've even started. After stumbling across a YouTube video by Lavendaire I felt inspired to find my own theme/word for 2018. And my theme for this year is care.
C A R E
- the provision of what is necessary for the health, welfare, maintenance, and protection of someone or something.
- serious attention or consideration applied to doing something correctly
This year I want to care for my little boy Hendrix and be the best possible mum I can be for him and our little tribe. Being a mum is the amazing and I want to make sure I am being the mum I want to be. I would like to make a more conscious effort to care for the environment too. After watching David Attenborough's Blue Planet 2 it really made me realise how much we are damaging our planet with plastics. And this got me thinking if I stop buying 5p bags, switch to canvas or if I use a reusable cup instead of buying a bottle of water when I'm out. These small steps will add up and make a little change. Having a little one you really do add to the mammoth amount of plastics we use. Everything is covered in plastic! I've thought about cutting down my meat intake and becoming a week-terian. I'm quite excited to see if this makes me more creative in the kitchen. Any veggie recipes please send them my way! I'd also like to put a little more care into blogging. Over the past 3 years I have been a yoyo blogger. I have always dabbled in blogging but I've never been committed to nurturing my blog as well as I would like. I really love blogging. I find it therapeutic and now we've got Hendrix is a great way to document our family. And finally, I'd like to try a little self-care this year. I can quite quickly neglect myself and it would be nice to look after myself too.
If you're setting NY Resolutions or have a word for 2018 I'd love to know what they are. Happy New Year my lovelies, may 2018 be everything you hoped for and more!
