Happy new year! Did everyone survive the holidays? This year the holidays sometimes were pretty full on. So we were happy to turn the page, press refresh and start a new year ahead. Somewhere between the life you have and the life you want, lies the quite seed of potential!
Each year on new years days, O and I head to a beach and write 3 words on rocks and toss them into the ocean. Not necessarily resolutions, but more things we hope to focus on for the year. My words were:
I feel really inspired to get back into learning more. Both on the work front and home front. So much of my inspiration for my life comes from travel. I grew up with parents who allowed me the fortune to apprecaite this gift. And while it is hard to often carve out this time (and money), I realize how much it informs me in who I am and what I do. To more trips learning and exploring new places in this world.
Having a kid, a career and trying to balance the "good life" can often be a lot. I find myself constantly searching out how to "slow down" and "be in the moment". Does anyone else notice how much we multitask in our day? I resolve to turn off work mode and be more present as a mom, a wife, a friend and a daughter to all the important people around me.
One of the most positive things to come out of 2013 for me, was the realization that the areas I enjoy most about being self employed is the possibility and honor to be able to collaborate with like minded people. For Aloe I really want to focus our energy on being a part of the community and collaborating with all the amazing talent out there.
What will 2014 hold for you?
