Grace in 2013

I am SO excited for the year that lay before us. Before me, before you. I can’t express how happy I was to say and type,” the first of the first” yesterday. It just holds so much promise and hope and made me feel all kinds of giddy.

I don’t really have any spectacular things ‘planned’ for  2013 as such, but I have a LOT of faith and hope and I BELIEVE that this is going to be one helluva year. Can you feel it too?

New year’s resolutions are usually poo’ied and that’s okay, you may have found me doing the same previously, but I think its nice that people can lay something down, something they aspire to achieve in their new year. And why the heck not, why not have some hope, even if it lasts a week or a month, the feeling of hope and possible achievement can lift anyone’s spirits.

My silent resolution, that I haven’t breathed aloud until now, is;

To be kind to myself and to try and find the good in everything, to set expectations for myself but not lose it if they for whatever reason do not unfold. And to always , always be true, to me and to you.

This is the year of GRACE.

I don’t like setting material resolutions, because I would prefer to push myself to advance as a person, rather than to hold something physical in my hands.  But I’m not going to pooey YOU, if your resolutions involve something to achieve in the material form!

Have you made a resolution? Does the new year present a feeling of absolute happiness for you too ?

The Life of Clare - Adventure, my word for 2013 is adventure. This could be big things, small things, traveling, hiking, a new coffee place, silence for a day… Doing things that excite me is my 2013 Adventure Resolution.

Me - Love the new look to your blog M – looks great !!!!

I don’t make resolutions but this year I plan on creating a healthier and fitter body for myself – one that will last me longer than it would have had I not started to look after myself !!!

I wish for you everything you wish for yourself and then some more !!

Have a fantastic 2013 – looking forward to sharing the journey with you.

Love, hugs and positive energy !

Kylez @ A Study in Contradictions - That’s a great resolution. I’m not big on resolutions but I have decided that this year I want to work on my patience. I definitely need to find more if I am going to be able to cope with two kids under two before the year is out!
