Can you imagine?! 2019 already. Wow.
If you’re anything like me (which hope there’s not too many of ‘me’ running around – world would be in chaos but happy) I love sitting down the week before the upcoming new year plotting and planning. Doing the usual new years resolutions, a vision board / book for good measure – looking over everything again and cementing this in my brain. Goals are set –
For me – I’m very visual – the vision board plan really works. I have a minor version I use on post it notes which is just a bulleted version of goals/ outlines of my life without the photos that I use in my yearly planner. Yes — I have to have a planner! I’m very tactile and enjoy writing something down and marking it off. I buy the year at a glance with the weekly version also in there – that way I use the weekly pages as to do notes and go back and make sure I’ve done everything I needed to do. Works really well for me considering I own and run two companies, have many balls up in the air. I sat down with a dear friend, Jake Rothschild (if you know ice cream then you know Jake – Jakes Ice Cream – Irwin Street Market in Atl on the beltline ) at his delightful home around the corner from me (his house is called Sweet Selma Farms – it’s an urban farm – he has chickens and turkeys) his home was previously a tackle shop I think as the story goes. So it’s a very unusual home. Much like mine. We sat with his two story tree twinkling as a roaring fire glowed in the corner. The tinkle tinkle of the fish tank as candles were lit and wine was poured. We cut photos from magazines and worked on our vison books. It was quiet, mindful and purposeful.
The most important part of any year is what is the MOST important thing – which if done everything else will fall into place around that. For me – it’s health / active lifestyle. I’ve been very still lately it seems. I think the divorce took so much out of me emotionally. Being still – in bed watching movies covered in Scotties. Time to get up shake it off and GO DO SEE.
So #1 is health / active lifestyle. Work, travel, projects anything else will completely fall into the best place if #1 is taken care of.
Work is very important – then there’s travel which is a given. Writing projects – my house projects – getting the rentals ready to go.
Life is good and it’s what you make of it. Work hard play hard.
I’m heading up to the cabin this afternoon. This will be the first time I take the new pup Bumble. I need to buy a harness for her. It should be very interesting indeed. Pip and Cricket are great in the car. Pip sleeps in her bed in the back looking out the window. Cricket always has to be in my lap wedged between the drivers side door and my leg. That’s always her spot. I’ve never taken Bumble on a trip except when she was little and couldn’t really leave her at home yet. I’m pretty sure Bumble will want to sit with Pip.
I see a hot tub in my future, a roaring fire – libations and post it notes with more focused points of my 2019. It’s all coming together folks.
Ok…. Off to do my errands then pack up to leave.
More in 2019!!!!
