This year I have chosen to set a theme rather than making any new years resolutions.
With every decision I make, everything I do, every plan I make, I will try very hard to use the theme as a guide, and if they don’t fit in with the theme, I will certainly be questioning whatever it is. I picture it’s going to be a challenge for the first month to consistently watch myself, but once the habit is cemented, it will then become second nature to me.
My theme for 2013 is:
Peace, Health and Healing
I will strive for a more peaceful existence, with less worry, stress and drama.
I will try to live more in the now. I will do more things I enjoy. I will use my talents to work on things I am passionate about.
I’m going to be burning a lot of incense, oils, candles, and meditating and not just at night to get me to sleep.
I want to be healthier, both mentally and physically.
Physically speaking, I will be eating even better than I did in 2012, drinking more water and less alcohol, attempting to quit sugar, but also allowing myself treats every now an again so as to achieve balance. This will not include ice cream, as instead of being sick from a hangover on New Years Day, I was sick from ice cream. I will also try to inject more movement into my day, as I suffer from having an office job. Sitting on my ass all day is exhausting and drains the life out of me.
Mentally speaking, I will be reading more inspirational books, listening to more music, battering myself less and having more fun through various means – some I have tried before, and some I haven’t.
I need to heal from the last 6 months, which will involve a lot of writing, talking and sharing.
I have also recently realized that I still have some things to deal with as a result of things that have happened in my life. I will need again deal with these through writing, talking and sharing.
On looking back on the list, I think the three areas are quite complimentary and I feel so much more positive, clear and focused on the year ahead of me.
As my dearest friend said to me yesterday:
2013 is going to be great for all of us. It’s our second chance since the world didn’t end.
