Christmas and New Year seem to be the time of year we take stock of our lives, look at what we’re doing and ponder whether it’s what we actually want to do. It’s also the time we often decide to make changes, although whether we actually follow through on them and for how long is another post altogether.
On the professional front, I’ve set myself some writing and marketing goals, but on the personal front I’d decided to do things a little differently. I had been considering some different ways of approaching that and when I read this article I decided I’d take the challenge and rotate through each of the truths weekly.
I won’t bore you on a daily or even weekly basis, but I wanted to share the challenge this week of not letting circumstances determine my mood. Today was the first day back at work after a two-week holiday. At the moment I’m working in the city, so the challenge has been not to let back-to-work thoughts spoil the last few days (or this morning!). It was a beautiful summer morning and after taking a few quick photos I concentrated on how lovely it was and how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful part of the world. It seems to be working for so far!
Let’s make the most of all our moments in 2015.
