Take a moment to yourself, somewhere quiet.
Take a deep breath, and if you have the time/space/inclination do something that has significance for you e.g. light a candle, brew a put of your favourite tea, play your favourite music, whatever.
I’m in a house full of some of my favourite children who currently watching cartoons, but who occastionally need books read, computer games played, and lavish attention. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s a great end to one year, and a wonderful start to the next. Because I have only a small amount of time which I want to myself to finish Reverb12, I will answer Kat’s five questions before getting back to the party.
2013 is going to be MY YEAR because I know exactly what I want out of the year to come.
In 2013, I am going to take a holiday overseas.
In 2013, I am going to feel confident in me.
In 2013, I am not going to apologise for everything and everyone.
In December 2013, I am going to look back and say I was the best me, daughter, sister, SIL, friend and colleague that I could be.
I hope that you all have a wonderful Hogmanay tonight, and that New Year starts, continues, and ends well for you. Below is my little gift to you – enjoy!
