Sun shinning, dogs sleeping and the promising new year all the way ahead. One year ends and another begins. It has been a big year full of joy, love and deep loss. Today, the first day of the year started with extended couch talk as our eldest wonder and her Dad and I swapped stories and double coffees. Not a bad start!
No resolutions as the goal list is ongoing – more writing, keep up with Spanish, well-being and fitness, as much time as possible on the water whether on the boat, in the kayak or standing on the paddle boards and being ‘present’. I am chronically guilty of looking back and planning forward and forgetting to be in the moment. Perhaps I have a resolution after all.
I do plan to take a contentment photo each day this year to compile into a visual journal of 2019. The word ‘joy’ is one of my favorites although I decided that the feeling I want to record are those diverse moments in time where mind, body and soul are connected in contentment.
Today, I begin.
