Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 202 – Wave The Old Goodbye…


“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” – C.S. Lewis

Well, here it is. The last Sunday of 2018.

Where did that year go? Seriously, it has flown by and I can’t quite believe it.

It’s been eventful in so many ways, with work and stress, family and stress, writing and stress… I think you get the gist of what I am saying. 2018 was filled with a whole lot of stress for me, but there were many good points too.

My dream for next year is to be able to take more time for me.

So I don’t fall into the stress potholes of life so easily.

So I can deal with work issues without worry.

So I can handle the inevitable ups and downs of family life calmly

So I can really work on this writing malarkey and fulfil one of my biggest dreams…

That’s my wish for you all too. More time for self care so you feel refreshed for your daily lives. ❤

So… tell me, what new dreams are you hoping to realise in 2019?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your New Year’s Celebration! Wishing you a prosperous 2019 ❤

    I think I would like my 2019 to be quiet and move slowly like a small creek; however, it isn’t looking that way just yet.

    Self-care time is so important. You’ve got some great goals set! My goal for 2019 is to focus on spreading kindness to others while also remembering to be kind to myself. Happy new year!

    I wish you a stress-free self-care 2019. As for me, I have bookish dreams, and also hope to move house and get pregnant again. What were you saying about stress?!

    I feel 2019 is a big year as the end of a decade and I definitely want a few things finally off my plate before we roll into 2020. Writing and blogging being up there

    Such good hopes and wishes to have for the New Year, Ritu. I’d like to share in those myself. I hope 2019 is brighter, kinder and happier for you lovely, and that you put yourself at the top of your own list to take better care of your own needs, to write a little more, to worry a little less  ♥

    I’m not looking to but hoping to make a major change in my life. This has been one of the most life draining years of my life and yet I have been blessed with a steadfast hope and guiding light towards a better direction for my life. Thank you Sister! 💜

    Ah, stress … when your mouth says yes and your stomach says no. So hard to find a balance. For myself ? Write every day. Stay alive. Look after my family. Grow flowers and vegetables.

    I am not good with new year to me it is a non event. Nothing changes magically at midnight December 31st the same old same old will be there to greet us January 1st.
    That said the goal you have set for yourself and your wishes for us make a great deal of sense.
    For me I would dearly love to get a book of poems out there, also I hope to carry what I learned on my recent course forward. 💜💜 Wishing you all the best Sis.💜💜

    I did not wait until the change of the year to apply what I want to change. I want to spend more time with my mother and started already a few months ago and I want to keep this up.
    What I want for myself is working more in the field where I feel home: writing, going more for my practice and perhaps focusing more on the health field again for making a living than the financial world.
    I also want to be more steadfast about the steps I have/want to take. No feelings of guilt but still with love in my heart.
    Happy Sunday, sis!

    Hi Ritu, Here’s to less stress…I’m retired, so can fully appreciate that state, and do! BUT we have to give up our years for it…(there’s always a catch..) Another BUT coming…I appreciate everything and am eternally grateful for family and all the simple joys of life. Here’s wishing it for you. A happy New Year. xx
