Well, it certainly has been a while since I updated this blog – hasn’t it? It wasn’t that I deliberately set about to take time off from this space, but more a case of time quietly slipping by. Before I knew it, it was Christmas, and then it’s a new year – filled with new possibilities, planning and excitement.
To be honest, the last six months of 2013 were some of the most challenging and stressful that I have experienced. Both Matt and I were extraordinarily busy, trying to keep up with the demands of work, relationships and life in general. To say that we reached December feeling overwhelmed and completely exhausted would be an understatement. 2013 stretched us in all aspects of our lives, with several experiences during that time that we hope not to be challenged by again any time soon.
I’ve decided that I don’t like making statements about what I think the year ahead will be like, but rather my ‘new years resolution’, if you will, is to take things as they come. To try to make the most of each day and plan mainly for the week ahead – rather than for three or four months down the track. Like most resolutions, I’m not sure how well I’ll keep to it, but I’m hoping for a year where I’m content with what I’m dealt (whether good or bad), rather than overwhelmed by it. I AM excited by 2014 and a year filled with possibilities!
Having said all this, my aim to live in the moment, is being put into practice as I’m currently organising all the last minute bits and pieces for Life InStyle – a retail trade show here in Sydney. If you happen to be in Sydney and are thinking of coming to the show, please do stop by my booth (1228) and say ‘hello’.
I’m intent on being in this space much more regularly than I have been. If you’ve been checking in from time to time, thank you and happy new year! I hope that you’re looking forward to all the things this new year might hold for you too.
Photos from the last week of our holidays – we treated ourselves with a trip to Fiji in an attempt to really relax and switch off. We concluded while we were there that it was possibly the best decision we’d made all year!
