This is an exciting time of year for any fellow stationery lovers…new diary, new calendar, new planner, new journal!!
I love sitting down at the New Year and writing in all the important dates and appointments, however these are still a little bit thin on the ground at present (thanks Tier 4!). But it’s still nice to have things to plan for, and look forward to.
When I looked back on how I spent 2020, I found that most of last years activity was based around work…work work, blog work, workout work. 2020 brought some much needed positive shifts and new opportunities of course, but there wasn’t much room for fun.
So this year, I’m making sure that I also allocate time to doing things just for the sheer joy or fun of it. No expectations. No targets. No achievements. Just taking time out to recharge and reset.
How often do we plan in appointments for the fun stuff?! We make room for the other ‘stuff’, the non negotiables and the ‘I must do this’ diary notes, but including time to create the joyful moments and make the memories should be just as important.
When I look back at the end of 2021, I want to remember these times as well as the achievements – the smiles, the laughter, the warm glow of feeling happy.
So welcome 2021 – the year of more joy.
