New Year's Resolutions


I've never told you very much about my very personal life. Mainly this is because I am using this blog as a sort of retreat, a quiet place.
With 2013 starting out right now, I need to make some resolutions for the coming year.

I absolutely Love my blog. I feel it is not done yet, it's not yet perfect. That is okay.

What is not okay is the feelings of rush and stress I am feeling. It is mostly my own fault, because I have So Many Ideas spinning in my head and I think I am a bit too ambitious.

This of course has to do with the limited amount of time I have on my hands... I have a husband, a house, a job and two small children. I notice I am comparing myself and my accomplishments with other bloggers, but not taking into account that the bloggers I am following are mostly older than me, do not have small children and/or are happily staying at home.

So, what I am going to do? What is wisdom?

A women under stress is not immediately concerned with finding solutions to her problems but rather seeks relief by expressing herself and being understood.

Yes, absolutely so.

 And yes, that is absolutely true. And I think this is my biggest problem at the moment. I am making lists of everything I want to do, but in between taking care of the kids, there is just not enough time.

I am thinking I need to organize my fluttery brain. A bit of order, prioritize stuff that really need to be done, and set aside stuff that can be done later.

Concerning hooky time, well, this time is really limited. And I am a girl who likes to start ideas, but starting so many projects that it feels like everything takes ages...

The thing is, I need to change the way I am working on my lovely crocheting projects. Maybe do one a week and limit my number of projects to absolutely one a week. Not changing between projects. I am slow with crocheting, so finishing something takes several weeks for me. Right now I work small bits so it takes even months for me to finish a project.

Will this be a good idea?

It's only a start, because I need to tackle several other stuff going on in my private life. Most of the times when I start changing one routine, the others will follow.

I've promised this to myself: I am going to think this through in the coming days, and when school starts on Monday, I will make a decision.

So you will find me doing this:

 

There are probably many of you also thinking about New Years Resolutions, I hope they will be nice and will come true for all of you!
