I've been thinking a lot about 2014 these past couple of weeks, wondering what it will bring. I am pushing all thoughts of worry and work and decisions to the back of my mind for now and letting all that mull together in the background and hoping that the result will bring some clarity as to what should happen.
Although I believe in serendipity and fate and the universe, I also think you need to make things happen in your life on your own. I know at least for me I can't just drift and hope things will work themselves out. My type A personality doesn't allow for that. I need to be doing and thinking and planning - all the time.
Ironically this summer we had my son tested for ADHD and of course (why didn't I think of that!) he tested positive +++. I say ironically because it was in doing the research for ADHD to better understand my son that I realized I too have been ADHD my entire life. In "those" days though - kids weren't tested and we didn't talk about ADHD - we just said the kid was hyper active and always getting into things - what we didn't talk about was all the things going on in the background - in that poor kids head that was causing him to be this way. In any case, I digress - just to say that that ADHD makes it difficult for me to let things be and let things take their course. I admire people who can do that, almost envy them because it seems things do always come their way - not so true for me.
But I know 2014 will be a pivotal year for me - something will shift and change - I am just not sure in which direction yet but you will surely find out along with me here on my blog.
In the meantime I am getting Christmas ready here in the house ... nothing too much this year, low key and subtle - but I am liking it.
A few little ornaments spread here and there ... and some running around to get just the right gifts for everyone
Oddly I never feel the stress or the frustration of Christmas as many people do or say they do. I love the hustle and bustle and I love the shopping and buying gifts - one of my favorite things to do - I never understood when people say "oh I have so many people to buy for" - is that a bad thing? I dunno - I love when I have lots and lots of people to buy for.
And if I don't have lots and lots of people to buy for - like this year - it just means those I do get to buy for get more!
Hoping your holiday time is going the way you want it to go
