:: 2013 – a retrospective ::

1 January 2014

The view outside the window on 1 January 2014.

This holiday season will be best remembered for rain, floodings and storms of epic proportions.

Aptly, I found this image in my online archive:

It's always summer somewhere

But the way things are going, that won’t help us much, is it? I’m glad it’s summer somewhere, truly I am. But we are here and we need to find ways to cope with the hand we have been dealt. And yes, I’m applying this to my healing process too.

I’m half way through my Unravelling the Year Ahead workbook. The first part of the workbook very much deals with looking back.

I remember saying at the end of 2012 that I would take all the opportunities which came my way in 2013… and I did just that:

A crazy year.

A year of extreme. Ups and downs. Highs and lows.

I don’t know much about 2014 yet, but I know this much: it will be much calmer. (And in case you’re wondering, I did make up the word ‘positiveness’ in my last post. Somehow, it seems more apt than ‘positivity’.)

2014 is all about staying in the moment. Less rushing about. Enjoying every single moment.

And home improvements on a big scale.

Today was day six of 365 Days of Mindfulness. Experience something new. And so I did.

Limited edition Pringles (January 2014)

And I did it so you never have to. Don’t. Not good.
