I'm sure I am not alone in my complete bafflement as to where this year has gone! I feel like I'm still eating the dust of January and here December is tearing around the corner. This is the third year I am attempting a round up of 50 days to close the year but after not writing for ages I went back to my posts to seek inspiration and came across my mission statement for 2015.
To be mindful using the following principles :
M - being true to Myself
I - being Intelligently Informed
N - being emotionally, physically, mentally Nourished
D - being Dedicated to being in the present moment and to my truth
F - having FUN
U - being my Unique self
L - Living with Love in my heart every day
Did I achieve these goals?
I'm not sure so I'm going to spend some time unpacking the year with words to try and unravel what was achieved and what needs attention. Some of it I will share here, other things I will be sharing with only my journal (which I may later burn!).
If there is one important lesson I will be taking away from this year it is the knowledge that not everyone is entitled to an open invitation to my story. I have a better understanding of the fact that there is a subtle difference between friendship and acquaintance and in drawing that line I am learning to honour my story, my health and my sanity. Saying no has been my biggest achievement.
So here is to the last 50 days of 2015.
May they be good.
May I be present in each day.
May I be mindful that while the year is on the way out I still have a say on how it ends.
May some of the questions have answers.
Photo of the day:
A card received from a dear friend across the ocean in sympathy for the loss of my 2 dogs within 2 weeks of each other.
Rosie gone 6 weeks yesterday and Eva 4 weeks today.
My heart will be sore for a long time but I have my memories and a gentle reminder that I have people who will reach out to me in my times of sorrow.
I am blessed.
