Yesterday was my daughter's 25th birthday! A quarter of a century ago! I reflected back to the me that was then and also my 25 year old self. I remember making a big statement to a friend that there were so few "firsts" left! How naive I was. There have been so many firsts since then (having my daughter a few years later was one of them - and what a memorable first it was. Happy birthday my darling girl!)
This year alone has seen several firsts - most resulting from plunging into the blogging world - my blog, creating ATCs, taking part in challenges.
Jamie asked us to do a relection of the year and I have so much to be thankful and still reflect on. I am working in my journal to really reflect on her great prompts.
Today Jamie asks us to reflect on a great question:
What is your winter wish?
I do love winter - in all its variety. The lights celebrating the Christmas season, Christmas itself, New Year's, the snow, the crisp air, rosy cheeks, snowmen and snowball fights, even my birthday. There is so much to appreciate.
There is a downside - driving in bad conditions, the lack of sun, the dark days of February, but there are more days of glory than not.
My wish for this season is to focus on well-being:
to continue my healthy eating (10 lbs. down so far!),
to keep creating,
to continue with keeping my gratitude journal and giving each day,
to make a special effort to connect with family and friends this season.
I also want to really feel the joy of this season - I know it was difficult last year.
May we all experience true joy throughout this season!
As Jamie says:
"You can be a maker of magic and a tender of wishes. There is great power in wishing together."
