Looking ahead....

Well, I am slowly getting my head round to the fact that it's a new year, and somewhere inside I feel great excitement for what it holds! At his time of year, well, up until the 3rd of January at least, it's all talk about 'New Year's resolutions', and I always feel a little caught out when someone enquires about the goals I have set myself up for. Note: 'set myself up for...'. I do feel that I set myself up for a fall from grace right from the outset, so for the last couple of years I have just not bothered with the idea. Well, it's all about to change...

My first resolution is 'to leave the defeatest attitude at the back door of 2010!' Yes, I am reminded that 'I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.' So, I shall bury my head in the sand no more, I shall look up and know that whatever I try to achieve, I shall do through His strength, and not my own. For now, that is where I am at. I have also decided not to try and swallow a whole loaf of bread all at once. That's figuratively speaking of course! Whatever task is at hand, I shall approach it one bite at a time. I think that this is where I sometimes went wrong in the past, being overwhelmed by everything that needs doing so much so, that I end up flapping around like a chicken on a diet of e-numbers, and in the process I got nothing done! So, I shall inhale, exhale, and get started, one job at a time.

The following words from that iconic film 'The Karate kid' springs to mind: "Focus Daniel san!" That's one skill I need to fine tune. I need to learn to focus. It's so easy to be distracted by the busyness of life that one loses sight of the more important things. So, I'm going to play more with the kidlets.

On a creative note: I intend to make more time for making! Last year I made these:

I'm looking forward to experimenting with some new ideas this year!
Oh, and lastly, I might decide to get up a tad earlier in the mornings....early bird catches the worm and all that! Have a super lovely day wherever you are. Live, love and create!
