New Years Resolutions

Donnerstag, 24. Dezember 2015

Every year around christmas and new years eve I take this little notebook of mine and read the New Years Resolutions I made for this year and if I reached some of my goals I've set.

- feeling more comftable in my own body
- writing more letters
- being more consistently with projects
-reading more books again
- enjoying the moments
-a healthier lifestyle
-trying more recipes
-improving my knitting skills
- starting to write creative again
-spending my time with productive activites

Well, I have to admit that I have been quite successfull this year and that is the first time I really worked on each of those points. I also have to admit that I haven't reached every single goal I set, but at least I tried (for a certain time).
At the end of this year I can say I feel a lot more comftable in my own skin. This has a few reasons, but the most important one is that I learned a lot about myself the past 365 days and there walked a few souls into my life who changed my view and mind.
Moreover I filled my free time with a lot of productive things this year. I started medieval knitting, stitching, writing songs and poems, working on my blog, taking photos in the woods, spending time in the nature, making music, writing letters. I enjoy every single moment which is given to me on this planet and I am very happy that I got on this conscious path. Unfortunatley I am still a person who likes to jump from one project to the next. Often I tend to not finishing one thing but starting a new. But actually I realized this year that this has not to be a bad thing. The important things I do finish but with the others I feel free. If I want to try something new I just give in and do it!
With becoming vegan I automatically began to try new recipes and changing my way of eating. I explored some different diets and foods.
And when I haven't been in the kitchen or in the woods, writing a new song or crafted, I read. I bought a lot of new books the past couple of months and there are still so many books on my to-read list. But I have all the time in the world and I am happy I reached my goal of 25 book in 2015.
So, I am very passionated about new years resolutions. They give me a feeling of pursuing an aim and having a plan.

- learning finnish
- being more confident with what I am doing
- doing more music/writing new songs
- learning more about the vegan lifestyle
- starting contemporary dance/modern ballett
- doing more spontanous trips
- learning playing violin
-starting a nature journal again
- improving my garden skills
- learning more about herbs and their use

I would love to know your new years resolutions and if you reached all your goals for this year!
Fairy on,

Your new year's goals sound quite lovely and whimsical.
