Not a resolution, just a thought, a hope

The first day of a new year and at this point 2017’s secrets are unknown to me: hidden, obscured, masked, unseen and unidentified. I don’t think that is necessarily a bad thing – it just is. Just as this time last year I had little idea what 2016 had in store, so today while I can’t see what’s ahead, I can attempt to ready myself for what is to come. I’ve been thinking about my focus, my goals – not so much the physical, financial or career achievements I may aim for but the heartfelt things, the character development: the hopes and desires, and the attitudes or attributes which might surround or enhance those things. [I’m not even sure if this makes sense to someone who’s not inside my head!]


I’m a visual person so I’ve created a picture of sorts, (perhaps more impression than  picture) words and colour and forms which express my current thoughts, hopes and focus for 2017. That’s not to say my focus won’t change, simply that as it stands, this is how things are today. Nothing hard and fast, not rules to live by or a resolution, just thoughts and hopes.


One thought on “Not a resolution, just a thought, a hope

  1. I agree. I don’t make hard and fast resolutions. I learned a very long time ago that they can be hard to live up to and once broken, too easy to give up altogether. I tend to get a feel for where I need changes and act on intuition. Hard and fast resoltuions are exactly that and in my experience, flexibility and fluidity are what’s required, the ability to adapt when something isn’t working, not forcing oneself to adhere to inflexible rules and regulations more reminiscent of school or work. So long as one isn’t static and keeps learning and adjusting, that for me is the way to go! 😄🙌🏻
