What are your well-dones of 2012? Ever since I read Sam's column last week, I realized how us, women tend to make ourselves feel guilty or bad for everything in our lives. From the daily little mishaps, to not living up to our own expectations. It’s hard and it has to be changed - so, are you with me?
Well, Sam had a brilliant idea: instead of setting goals for 2013 and creating fixing-ourselves-lists for the New Year, let’s take a moment and celebrate the arrival of 2013 by acknowledging our achievements in 2012! Let’s be kinder to ourselves, shall we?
The acknowledgments can be anything from falling in love with reading again, finding time to relax, balancing better, reconnecting with an old friend, to simply being happy.
So since we can’t really sit down all together for a lunch over a huge wooden table somewhere beautiful, let’s just take a moment and give ourselves a huge well done for 2012!
Here are 3 of my well-dones:- cooking my way through a few of my new favourite cookbooks
- taking a moment to stop and enjoy the day instead of rushing to the next better thing
- booking a trip for the upcoming summer holiday (details coming up soon).
Loves, what would be on your well-done list? Do tell:) xo
P.S: The one piece of advice
you wish you'd been given.
P.P.S. And my take on happiness. What's yours?
