It’s that time again. The time when the blogosphere is populated with talk of resolutions, the refusal to make resolutions, time for change, inspiration, looking forward and looking back.
Personally I have no idea where this year has gone. The speed with which it’s passed has only been matched by my surprise and delight at how the blog has grown and developed and at the wonderful opportunities it’s brought this year. For those and for the wonderful readers that help to make things possible, as ever, I’m eternally grateful.
Holiday season downtime has been wonderful and much needed. I always get to December and feel both elated at the arrival of Christmas but also exhausted, so a respite from it all has been so very welcome. Time to be with loved ones and friends is invaluable and always cherished.
My local beach – the place for gathering thoughts.
Downtime brings with it the space to think and plan…and of course, some of those thoughts and plans inevitably drift towards the blog. I’ve been thinking about ways to bring the blog forward, to fit it into my life and to ensure I can provide what I hope will be content that readers love and enjoy.
I have a few ideas up my sleeve that you’ll see popping up here and there over the coming months but I’d love to know what you think. What do you like here already, what do you want to see more or perhaps less of or is there something completely different that would grab your attention?
As for my own resolutions and aspirations, I have to make them, even if some fall by the wayside. They’re a big part of my holiday season traditions and to not make them would feel like I was walking away from optimism, enthusiasm and improvement.
Veuve Clicquot – a must for a New Years celebration!
They include enjoying more of life’s simple pleasures, taking time for exercise and getting rid of elements that add stress. More family time and more time to spend on the home itself. Less magazines that report speculative gossip and more time on those with quality writing and beautiful inspirational fashion. More balance and more time spent with a good book. Less time spent doing things because its good to be seen to be doing them and more of doing what I want to do. I’d love to know what’s on your list for 2013 if you’re making one.
I hope your New Years Eve is full of hope, love and anticipation and thank you for spending 2012 with me…it wouldn’t have been the same without you! xxx
