I get through the rough days by telling myself there is always tomorrow.
Every day is a new beginning.
Go to bed…sometimes I take myself there at 6 just to get a head start…and when you wake up it’s a fresh new chance at a good day!
If I rely on the chance at a new day imagine what it feels like when it’s a whole new year!!! I LOVE IT!!
A clean slate just waiting to be filled with good stuff.
Some years are just a clean up year from the year before. In the Welcker house that was 2017/2018. Dave and I decided that 2018 was like a lingering poo smell. 2017 was the poo. We forgot to use the Poopourri apparently! (Sorry to be gross but that’s how we get through things around here sometimes! Gross humor!! haha.) BUT 2019 has the opportunity to be so much better.
There are new adventures to be had. A bucket list item is booked and we are SO EXCITED. I have a new job with so much promise. New soccer seasons to be played, basketball games to watch, girls to grow, flowers to plant. NEW NEW NEW everything to be had. I also change with each passing year. There are new growing seasons and life never lets one go by without changing who I am a little. We are getting things done on the Art Cabin just in time for my Soul Restoration workshop this month. Getting the Art Cabin cleaned and ready is on the agenda (holla with an Ally McBeal baby dance!)
Are you filling up the year with new adventures of your own? They don’t have to be big. Just a visit to a new place can do wonders for your year. Making memories are what it’s all about, right?
I am a word of the year kind of girl. I like to get a cuff and wear that word on my wrist. Every time I glance down there it is, ready to keep me mindful of what I am trying to work on. Goal setting/reaching doesn’t work for me. I’m too flighty. But one word seems doable. How about you? Are you a master of the goal reaching? I envy you and your mastering skills if you are. Do you have a word picked out if you are a word person? What is it? I’m struggling with finding mine this year. They usually just come to me so I’ll wait patiently for that to happen.
What about planners? Are you a master of the planner?? I went to Kansas last year with some ladies and one of them is the Planner Queen! It’s darling and filled in and has pictures and all the good stuff in it. I try. I give it a valiant effort every.dang.year. and seem to fail every time. I buy the planner, fill it out for about a month, and then I just quit without even realizing I quit. Someday I am going to make it through the whole year, I refuse to give up hope that will happen!! So if you are a planner master what is your favorite? I haven’t bought mine this year. haha. Do you bullet journal? I love that concept so much! Mixing all the art elements in means art supplies and I love art supplies. I should clarify that I love collecting the art supplies and online art courses. I’m hoping to make more creative time this year so I can use them. 🙂
So, share! Give me your best ideas, your words, your intentions. What are you manifesting this year? What is the way you are hoping to bring more peace into your life? Meditation is on my list every year. (Notice I said on my list?) What are your big adventures? What is your one small adventure? I would love to hear.
Here is to a new year full of promise or at least some peace! Maybe this is your poo year. They happen to all of us. Just know you can weather it. You will make it through because you are stronger than you even know. We are all fierce warriors; sometimes we don’t even know that till we have to be. Maybe this is the lingering smell year, just know that this too shall pass. Whatever it is for you, you’ve got this!! Maybe this is the year everything goes AWESOME! To you I say, ROCK IT and high five!!! But to all of you I say, you are not alone, ever. You are loved and important and needed. You bring amazing things into this world just by being here.
No matter what give this year the best of you!!
Happy 2019 my friends!!
