my word for 2013 was 'strength'. It's only a word, but nominating it as my one word made it something more tangible and solid in my heart and my head. I needed a lot of it emotionally and physically, when our role as parents was challenged and our strength tested. This word was one I needed to hold tight and would draw on during some really difficult times, and its one I will keep in the fore of my mind like a prayer always.
my word this year is actually two.. 'let go'.
I get so caught up in making sure everything is just so, routine is rarely broken, children are mostly in bed on time and things are always organised. This is just me. It's how I keep on top of everything and try to feel in control. I simplify and do my best not to overcommit. This is all good, but I feel that it might be time to relax things a bit. I need to forget about routine sometimes and let my boys enjoy longer days, go for evening walks, hit the beach after school.. to just let go.
I want to be more spontaneous occasionally, to make more time to enjoy these beautiful babies, to live this life and to make memories from the moments.
how about you..what's your one word this new year?
