It is hard to believe the first month of the new year is almost over. I didn't intend to take a break from posting but life has been full. I've been finishing up projects, working on new ones, organizing + purging and getting myself ready for the new year. I've also been enjoying time with my family [with one road trip to Ashland under our belt] and weekly lunch dates with Appah [no babysitter required!]. I love the excitement and promise that a new year brings. Although I have a list of goals I want to achieve in 2011 overall I'm keeping it pretty simple and wanting to learn to FOCUS in everything that I do. I have a tendency to try to multi-task all day long in order to feel productive [and sometimes it is necessary] but often I miss out in the joy of whatever it is I'm doing or working on because I'm not fully present. I think this also means doing less and/or being selective in how I spend my time. I don't think this is going to be easy for someone like me [I'm a total busybody] but it is definitely worth a try! [This also happens to be my One Little Word for 2011.] Hope you are all having a wonderful start to the new year!
