.... { Happy Belated New Year } ....

Happy Belated New Year to you all!

Having taken some time off of blogging for the holidays....
I have thought I would resume blogging when things settle here...
but I can see....

that perfect moment of organized time...
with everything on my list complete....
only lives in wishful  theory.

So I am back...

Not with things as organized and accomplished as I would like....

Not with a clear vision of how I am going to accomplish what I hope to this year ....
but back none the less...

and wondering what my life would look like if I were kinder to myself....

if I spent more time concentrating on what I have gotten done...
and less ruminating on what is still unfinished.

If I didn't let my ego run rampant with my self worth...
if I learned not value myself primarily on what I accomplish...

but rather remember I have a soul that needs to be nurtured...

What would my life look like if I just let go of some of the expectations
 on how I think things should be...

and accept and embrace things as they are...

Would spending more time with an inner voice of gratitude
help quiet the critical inner voice that seems to never be silenced or satisfied.

In a season with an emphasis on goal setting...
should self care be moved to the top of the list...



as always dear friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life

  1. Yes! Me too. I need to learn to take better care of myself, too. I don't even know where to begin. I guess you just begin by beginning... right? Lovely images, both the pictures and the words. xo

  6. Oh Tamera, Please be kind to you. Nurture away. Your words and thoughts always nurture my rough and weary, self critical soul. Thank you for reminding me to be kind not just to others but to myself.
    Blessings, dear, Tamera!
