Here & now

img_0468For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
~ T. S. Eliot

On this second day of 2017 I am feeling a little more positive than I have done in a while. Truth be known, I just feel that 2016 was a {sort of} wasted year. Don’t get me wrong there have been some fantastic times for which I am very grateful, but it just felt like a year in which I didn’t embrace the good things quite so heartily as I should have done. Basically, I felt off balance.

Therefore, this year ‘BALANCE’ is going to be my word. I am going to keep what makes me happy and filter out the things that do not…now that sounds like a plan! I intend to write more this year too, as that really seemed to go on the back-burner last year.

What do you want your year to look like? Whatever shape it takes I hope that it will be a good one.

Here’s to endings and beginnings and to the things that make us happy!

{I am so thankful for my online friendships and look forward to them continuing in this new year xx}

 

here & now

I am a little tired {I know I will not be alone} but it’s nothing a week off between Christmas and New Year won’t solve…phew!

Thoughts of my mum are popping into my head more frequently, it’s that time of year. She loved having us all for Christmas, even though in latter years I know she found it tiring, but still she loved it. I miss her.

There are lots of festivities to look forward to with family and friends, which makes me happy, but I have to admit that I am also looking forward to some peace and quiet over the holidays!

That’s my here & now, how is yours looking?
