If you’ve followed this blog for a few years you’ll know that every new year I try to set an intention for the coming months. Rather than set specific resolutions, I pick a word (or in this case, a phrase) and try to incorporate that word into the year. 2014 was the Year of Learning and I kept a journal of the lessons I’d learned everyday. 2013 was the Year of Progress and that year I made leaps and bounds in my design business.
What is 2015 going to be? 2015 is going to be The Year of Taking Care of Myself. A bit of a longer title and it might seem kind of vague, some of you are probably saying “Holly, that seems really generic, everyone wants to eat better and be more active this time of year” to which I would reply “this isn’t just about being more active and eating better (although I definitely should do those too), a lot of this year is focusing on my mental and emotional health.”
So what does that mean?
Well, I’m breaking it down to the basics:
- Do things that make me happy
- Hang out with people that make me happy
Basic, yea? Those basics break down into further basic categories but really, 2014 was full of learning and full of stress. I don’t want you to think that I didn’t enjoy 2014, I certainly did! I just learned a lot of things (the hard way) that I’m looking forward to developing in more positive directions.
My knitting goals include:
- publishing more patterns
- finish WIPs (there aren’t too many, I’ve been good about supressing Start-itis, but there are few languishing)
- knit from the stash
Also pretty basic right? Should be a good year for goals!
What are you working towards this year? How was 2014 for you?
