As an introverted daydreamer, a poet, a writer, I spend a lot of time lost in my head. Whether buried in a book or worrying about things or composing essays, poems and stories, my mind can take me away from the here and now very quickly.
This year, my word is FOCUS. I want to bring some clarity and focus back into my life, in many areas. Focus on my home. Focus on my work. Focus on what is in front of me, instead of what is in my mind. Focus on what is going on around me, instead of the next chapter in my book. See the world in front of me, not the one created in my head.
I want to focus artistically. I was spoiled with a new camera this Christmas (another post) and I want to recapture the love I have of taking pictures and telling stories through the lens as well as with my words. I want to focus on my knitting again this year, as I was not very focused with it this year and didn’t get to a lot of projects I wanted to do.
I want to focus on my family. Bushboy is going to be 15 soon, and he is very much becoming his own person. I want to focus on being a part of that journey. Mr. Kate and I will celebrate 20 years of marriage this year, and I want to focus on the time we spend together as well, on what our relationship becomes as our son loosens his grip on our dedicated time.
So there you are. Focus. I feel good about this one, my friends. I’m looking forward to the year and the word and the adventure.
Any words this year for any of you? Feel free to share!
