20.18 | 20.19

As we dive headfirst into 2019, it’s a great time to feed off the vibrations of ’new beginnings’ energy. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t feeling inspired and excited by the potential that a new year brings. I’m not sure why the New Year has this effect on me personally, as I’ve never been one to set resolutions. But saying that, I do like to harness the creative ‘get shit done’ attitude that the start of the year brings.

 

 

For me, last year, was a time for thinking; a year that felt necessary for where I was. I’m the impulsive type. I’ll take on more than I can handle, tunnel-visioned and persevering, delegating where required, to achieve the intended goal.  Something had changed in my thought process and I got to a point where I realised it was time to stop, think and breathe. While the restless, ‘I’m bored, and need a challenge’ part of my personality had moments of “hey, I’m here!”, I eventually managed to slow down. Slowing down is a foreign concept, because just like in any apocalyptic movie, I tend to believe the notion, that movement is survival, literally. Last year, I slowed down enough to reassess where I am in life, what is important to me and what I want for my family’s  future.

 

Upon reflection, I wonder if I achieved any momentous milestones.  In short, no, but it did give me something better, it gave me perspective. And with that, I’ve come into 2019 feeling like I’m going to own it! I’ve scribbled down what I want to achieve, and I’m coming at it with resurgent enthusiasm. Many thanks to 2018;  my year to breathe.
