It's the new year, and like many, I've been thinking about my hopes for what this year will hold. I thought I'd post them here, as it is my plan to share a bit about each of these as I move through the year.
First and foremost, I want to begin to nourish, heal, and repair my body. The past five years have been quite challenging for me physically - five miscarriages, fertility drugs, a very challenging pregnancy, a tricky delivery of our sweet girl (including significant blood loss), the diagnosis of a neuromuscular disorder, post-partum depression, anti-anxiety medication, two and a half years of nursing, and lots and lots of stress. I am making some pretty significant changes in my diet and also intending to incorporate gentle exercise into my daily routine.
The dog will have a daily walk. She deserves it and so do I. (so far, so good!)
I hope to complete Tsh Oxenreider's plan for cleaning, simplifying, and organizing your home.
I have already begun to do some serious purging in my studio. I plan to continue clearing in this space as I begin to transition it into a shared creative space for me and my girl.
I want to focus more energy on connecting with others and nurturing relationships with my family and those dear to me.
I am working on a plan (with my husband) to more successfully manage our family's finances and to pay off our debt.
So, that's a peek into my hopes for 2011. What are your intentions and dreams for this new year?
