“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language. And next year’s words await another voice.” T.S.Elliott

Thank you Spidey for a thoughtful quote to start the year with!

A new year is always a great time to start a new chapter of your life, with fresh, new intentions and hopes for the following 365 days, and further.

I have seen this a lot over the last few years, people choosing a word for the year. Focussing on this word to help then create a better life for themselves and those around them, like Purpose, or Change, or Fearless, that kind of thing.

Instead of a resolution, it is the intention to make a lasting change, that seems to have really helped many out there, so I embraced this concept this year and my word for the year is…

SELF

I don’t mean to say that I will be just thinking about myself, being selfish or anything like that, but I have discovered that you can spend your life and energy trying hard to make life perfect for everyone else around you, and that is not a bad thing to do, but you forget that you are just as important as the others, you can’t make that difference.

You end up functioning on a depleted battery, in danger of shutting off at key moments.

So, my word, self, is about making sure I take time out to look after myself too, be it a nail appointment, to watching a film that I want to, a weekly bubble bath (that NEVER happens) or a cup of tea with just my thoughts for company. It’s me making a choice to do the things that mean a lot to me, not sacrificing my loves for everyone else all the time.

I am cutting back on blogging a little for myself too. The added pressure of posting regularly, was not conducive to a productive me on the writing front, so I have removed that pressure and as a result, am steadily doing my first reread and tweak of the year, with the hope that I should have this manuscript ready to either send to agents, or even publish, indie style before the end of the year!

I’m already feeling the benefits, and hope I can carve out time for me every day, so I can be a better person for everyone else!

So… tell me, do you have a word for this year?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your week and your new year! ❤
