Well not goals as such – here are the qualities in my life I want to create this year, all cut and pasted to my vision-board. Ta-da! I shared some of my aspirations with you (here) and now here’s part two, my intentions for the other areas of my life….
Nurturing: When life is running full-steam ahead, I often (guiltily) feel that, when it comes to time with friends and family, there is little fuel left in the tank. What company I must be! The irony is that it’s the people I love that are the biggest priority in my life. As a nurturer, this year I want to make sure I’m living this value – making sure that the time I spend with these peeps is jam-packed with energy, my full attention and little touches to show I care. Project Quality Time is on!
Nurturing #2: Are you sensing a theme here? We’re on the lookout for a new home and, much to Jack’s disdain, I’m definitely one to be ruled by my heart. My ideal home is light, airy and welcoming. Comfortable elegance. The deal-breaker is it has to have plenty of space to entertain. I love being the hostess!
Elegance: My role models and heroines ooze elegance and it’s one quality I’d love to bring into all areas of my life: home, work, wardrobe.
Freedom: Maybe it’s the Aries in me but I’ve been (accurately) described as “fiercely independent” in the past. A tad extreme. This year, I want to tone down my independent streak and, instead, try to create a sense of freedom – be it in channelling my creative energies into my plans for BasilBe (as I talk about here), keeping my free time just that – plan-free – and letting my heart take me where it will, or keeping my mind open to new possibilities this year.
Success: This is the year I’m going to spread my wings. I’m a dreamer but often lacking the courage to go. for. it. I’m pushing the doubts aside and channelling a little self-confidence. I’m determined to make this year a success.
