Hello my lovelies. A very Happy New Year to all of you. How was your New Year eve & the weekend? Mine was full of good friends & family. It sure was fun starting the year with loved ones.
Will 2011 be all that and much more? Are you the person who still believes in making New Year Resolutions and seeing them through? Well, I for sure STILL do it and like to give them my best shot. Resolutions of all kinds help me put things & my life in order. It helps me to see where I am standing and where I am going. I have made my list of personal & professional goals for the year. (You will hear more about the professional bit in days to come. I am really excited about it and can't wait for things to come together).
Wish me luck.
But two that clearly stand out are the ones that follow.
Its funny how we often forget to look after ourselves. Commitments of all kinds, Big & Small, Home-Children-Work all leave us with no energy or inclination to look after ourselves. Let's be kind to the person called ME. Let's take out time to look & feel pretty this year. Do whatever it takes to FEEL PRETTY. A pretty scarf around your neck or a flower in your hair. Trust me this will not only make you happy but also make the rest of your day more fruitful & satisfying. A pretty ME will for sure translate into a PRETTIER home & a PRETTIER day at work. I realize that just putting on some kajal does the trick for me. What makes you feel pretty?
Let's try and be THERE with our loved ones more. I don't mean physically. I mean mentally as well. Often we are thinking of our mammoth to-do lists even when we are with family & friends. Ir we have the laptop on 24 hours. Lets try to be with them some MORE.
Also let's try and pick up something new that we'd LOVE to learn or do but haven't had the time or the chance last year. Anything small or big. What would you LOVE to learn/do this year? For me it would be striking off each of the things I mentioned in my "Because this makes me happy" list earlier.
Will you be joining me? I'd love it.
