The hope of achievement wasn't there at the beginning.
Last year I started my 2011 blog year by sharing my hopes, dreams and goals for the coming year. They were all about embracing things which I wanted to make more important in my life: outdoors; discipline; dinner; crafting for charity; and photos with my kids.
At the close of the year I reflected on my success.
And I started to stress.
Did I achieve them?
Did I do enough?
Did I absolutely reach all my goals?
But then I remembered.
These were just things to set my eyes to.
To look to.
To look forward to.
To focus a small amount of time on and enjoy in the rhythm of life.
Because simply trying harder only results in tiredness and bitterness for me.
Which brings me to this year, 2012.
I want to refresh some tired aspects of my life.
First on my list: time to sing some new songs, literally!
It's been a long time since I invested in new music, and my ipod selection is old and uninspiring. So each month, I'd like to discover a new artist or buy a new cd.
Please I'd love some suggestions!
