I suppose it didn't help that it was 75 degrees on Christmas Day.
Either way, we had a fantastic Christmas! It just happens fast.
We got most of the things on our bucket list done but a few we opted out on because it was just too warm. We didn't turn on the fireplace so we skipped roasting marshmallows and Jaxon made Reindeer food at school so we didn't do that either. He also didn't show much interest in baking cookies and it's been raining here for what seems like weeks so Chrismas was a bit different this year BUT we did do some pretty cool other stuff.
We made snowflakes. That was fun. We put lots of decorations up around the house. Watched our traditional Christmas movies of choice. All the Santa Clause movies with Tim Allen.. Grinch (both Jim Carey and original).. The movie about Fred Clause.. I think it may be called Fred idk it's a good one though... and I can't remember what else we watched.. maybe a few of the Chevy Chase holiday movies as well. They are funny. Anyway... the holidays went pretty well. I'm just trying to figure out where to start to get myself organized. There are a lot of things I want to do and some things that are rolling over from last year which I am totally okay with.. because I would rather reach a little too far... I like to be ambitious.. I can be realistic enough to not be devastated when every little thing isn't accomplished. I am able to instead admire the things I did accomplish and it does help me to see what my limits are.. I suppose I am still testing my limits but I guess I will do that for life...
because I do wish to grow so this all seems to be working out pretty good for me. I am happy with my results so far so on to the next!!
Hot Tea Month
Celebrate Life Month
Get Organized Month
There are also a few others and you can see all the upcoming events for January at Days of the Year or National Day Calendar (I've been using Days of the Year more dominantly I've only recently discovered National Day Calendar but it seems to have more than Days of the Year even though they are improving.)
So I'm contemplating these things while thinking about my goals for the year. I'm trying not to put too much pressure on myself. I am having an issue with time and for the most part knowledge is timeless and action vs inaction.. it's still a procrastination/perfection issue. That is a difficult one to overcome I suppose with also my lack of patience for how truly long it takes me to complete a blog post.
I'm really enjoying all the design and graphic design I'm getting myself into but it is very very time consuming. I think really anything you love is more than likely something that is going to consume your time. I just have to plan more wisely.
I think it's time I get out the notebook and do some brainstorming. I can lay out everything I need. I haven't really had a moment yet to lay everything out on one page everything is scattered among the digital and dry erase world.. lol.. Writing is how my information is transferred. I am learning to use my keyboard more.. which I guess I another issue I'm having with blogging. Speaking to a blank screen is something I'm still getting used to. If I can identify what is keeping me from reaching my potential perhaps I will be able to alter some things and get better results. Writing is helping for sure. So break time and on with some old school stationary!
Much love. Will return.
