Resolutions or Something...

Monday, January 8, 2018






 

All images taken by me & posted to my Instagram.

We're over a week into 2018 and I still haven't quite found the words for my first post of 2018.

I'm not sure what it is, but the words aren't really flowing. I can't think of anything remotely inspirational or wisdom-filled. 

Maybe it's because I'm in the middle of a myriad of instructional words (I've been batch drafting several patterns and now I'm at the write all the instructions phase) or it could be because I'm really trying to stick to my Word of the Year, which just happens to be Content.

I often find myself reaching for the next thing, rather than enjoying the current thing. Whether that's in my business, or personal sewing/knitting projects, or the house & garden etc. I always find myself wondering, what's next?!

And I guess that's part of life - nothing is ever done until it's done - but it's nice to bask in the things that you enjoy, in the moment, rather than overlook it while waiting for the next one. Which is where Content comes in. 

Being content with what I have, where I am, what I am doing. Not constantly wanting or wondering or wringing my hands because I haven't done something I told myself I was going to do (like write the first blog post of 2018). Being happy that I've done what I could in the time I had, that not everything is going to go to plan (and nor should it, really) and that at the end of the day, I am just incredibly lucky to do what I do and have what I have and it's really up to me to take the time to enjoy it.

So, rambling (slightly incoherent) blog post aside, I hope you all had a lovey break and are looking forward to a great year. I have some fun things up my sleeves that I've been happily working away on, so while I might not have any words of wisdom for you, I'm content with the fact that I'll make up for it over the coming year.

Thank you so much for stopping by to leave me a comment, like most people, I really do appreciate them all!

Due to the large amount of spam I seem to be receiving for some strange reason, comments may take longer to be published than usual. Apologies!
