enjoy...


every year I try to make a new year's resolution, something kind of big, to push me a bit to make me step outside the comfort zone..  

The fact is though, I never really do and then I feel like I failed myself just a bit..again!  So this year, I decided to keep it real, simple & honest... 

My new years resolution is to just enjoy this life I have.  I have it pretty good I reckon, and so I'm going to just get on with enjoying it!

Time is racing by and my babies are growing up quick.  I don't want to turn around one day and say "gee I wish I had just taken the time to enjoy those moments more".  I want to make the most of each and every day, even the tough ones, and goodness knows there's a lot of them!  

I want to go to bed at night and feel full of all the good stuff.  I want to feel pleased about the way I handled a difficult moment, to have my heart filled with special words spoken by brothers & imaginations loaded with adventure, and to cherish love shared with my husband, the simple everyday stuff that makes this life so good..


Do you make new years resolutions? Share your 2012 word for the year over at Maxabella's..

  1. This is just beautiful.
    My word for 2012 is Joy, so I can totally relate to everything you have said. In fact, I wish that I had phrased it like this on my blog!
    Wishing you a joyful 2012,
    xx Sannah

  3. That makes absolute sense, Mel. All the striving, all the simplifying, all the BETTERING in the world can't equal the simple act of just appreciating and enjoying what we already have. x

  4. Sounds like the perfect mantra for the year.

    I haven't made any resolutions as such, though I do want to focus on simplifying, nurturing and creating. :)

  7. Lovely post which brought just a hint of a tear to my eye. We moved our youngest yesterday, He is now living nearly 2 hours away. The time you have with them and to enjoy them passes far too quickly. No resolutions this year but I do plan on doing lots of crafting with no children at home anymore.
