Resolutions aren’t my thing. If there is positive change to be made in life, and let’s face it, there always is, then it should be ongoing and daily, with a intended eye toward a paradigm shift that is realistic, and works best for you. And if that happens in January, or March or even September, than it’s better than not happening at all. So be kind to yourself, and gradually allow for the time needed to make whatever positive shift you wish to make in your life. What it boils down to is that you’re creating new habits, and these take time to stick, to become something that you just do and don’t think about. It won’t happen in a day, and likely not in a month. So please… if there is an agenda in your life for your new year ahead, tread slowly, be present with it and allow for your life to sometimes get in the way.
Because you’re the only one who can.
I’m looking ahead for 2011, dreaming of new foods to explore and share with you all, trying to negotiate my way through some ideas to start out the year with and finding myself a touch unmotivated. There is a lot going on in my head, and I’m trying to draw it all out and make sense of it. This happens to me, this information overload. I’m faced with fresh promise and 12 months stretching on endlessly ahead of me and it’s like a new notebook or a unread book. I’ve got a few ideas to start, and a thought about how to get it out and organized, so please stick with me. I’ll have something for you in time, and as always, it should be delicious. And if there’s anything you wish to see on this blog, feel free to let me know as I’m always open to other suggestions. Who knows? It might help push me over this creative slump that I find myself in.
