The old adage ‘start as you mean to continue’ is particularly apt, I think, on New Year’s Day. There’s something special about a whole fresh year lying ahead with pages waiting to be filled.
I started the day early with a trip to the beach with my beloved and our youngest son, with a spot of fishing and a lovely walk along the sand. Three of my intentions for the year right there: make the most of every day, enjoy more quality family time, and get outdoors as much as possible.
Back at home, I stopped to admire my tomato plants I planted a month or so ago – and found this, ready for harvest: my first, perfect, cherry tomato:
And another intention right there: find joy in small things. Oh, and then another: eat healthily. It may have been small, but there was a lot of flavour in that little tomato.
And, of course, now I’m blogging, so there’s another intention: write every day.
I’ve started well – and plan to keep at it to make this year wonderful for me and those around me.Here’s wishing the same for you.
Happy New Year!
