Itâ€™s been slow-going for me since the holidays.
It feels counter-intuitive to lay/laze in bed when the media are blasting New Yearsâ€™ Resolutions, everyone is sharing their organizing and goal-setting intentions, and youâ€™re supposed to be off to a fresh start.
The thing is I donâ€™t feel fresh yet. My immune system has gone into hibernating mode.
Having your windows frosted over by below-zero weather doesnâ€™t help motivate, even if the sun is shining brightly.
So I am giving myself a few more days to fully recuperate.
I can start my official new year next week.
In 2014 I carefully mapped out my year on a calendar in early January and a lot of things transpired that I didnâ€™t anticipate and couldnâ€™t foresee.
The home does need some organizing, but the clutter isnâ€™t going to disappear, so I can tackle that next week.
My aim is to be open this year. To not try to control outcomes as much, and to embrace opportunities in spite of the fears and naysayers in my head.
Part of that includes not putting so much pressure on myself. The year-end review shows that I was extremely productive, and a few more days of â€˜lazinessâ€™ can only help energize me for the momentum that is to come.
This is a time to pause and re-set. The hurrying and scurrying will start up soon enough.
