Ten on Tuesday - 10 Intentions for the New Year

I am full of intent for the New Year, so much so that it's a little overwhelming right now. I'm sure that I'm not alone in this. Let's hope this list adds a bit of clarity and focus to the year ahead because I'll certainly need it.

  1. Stay in the moment - I will never, ever, be in exactly this place in my life again and I really want to enjoy it.
  2. Spin more - I really love to spin but somehow once my wheels get put away it's really hard for me to find the time to pull them out and get all set up to spin. A fibre room where my wheels would always be out and available would be really nice but not likely anytime soon.
  3. Walk - exercise in general would be good but you have to start somewhere and walking would be perfect right now.
  4. Not let things get to me so much - focus on the happy and let the rest work itself out.
  5. Read some of the books I own - it seems like the best way to guarantee that I'll never read a book is to buy it but the only books I buy are those that I really, really want to read. I need to stop saving them for a day when there's nothing else to read because that day is never gonna come.
  6. Spend more family time - something tells me that this will take care of itself a bit but I still want to make sure that we spend the right kind of family time. Game nights are good.
  7. Knit for me
  8. Try to reduce my girls stress - remind them to enjoy the moment and not to worry so much. Wonder where they get that from.
  9. Get a bit more organized - I'll feel better if the chaos is tamed.
  10. Cook more - I used to cook a lot. I'd make interesting dinners and try new things but then the girls got older and I got busier and I got into the kitchen less and less. I miss it.

Good intentions! Moving targets all, which makes it both easier and harder.
