2010 has been a great year.

Probably one of my best years.

I think the reason is that I decided that I would put myself first.

I decided, that for the health of my family, their mother had to be healthy first.
I decided that to pursue my creative pursuits was not a frivolous thing, but a necessity for my wellbeing.

I took up yoga as a serious practice.
I worked on harmonising my environment.
I educated myself on how to be a more effective parent.
I made lots of lovely friends in the blogging community.

I still do all these things.
And they will be constantly ongoing.

Life is constantly evolving.

If we try to hold on to what once was, we will only make ourselves miserable.

I have embraced living in the present moment.
Accepting each situation as the perfect situation for me and for my learning in that moment.

I am feeling so optimistic for 2011.
I do not believe in setting New Years Resolutions.
But, I do believe in setting intentions.

My intentions for 2011:

I will wear more skirts and dresses.
I will learn how to sew with my new sewing machine.
I will continue with my yoga practice, daily.
I will learn how to bake a proper, French cake.
I will keep learning about how to be a better mother.

I will live each day.
In the present.

And be grateful for each and every second that I have on this earth.

Thank you to everyone who has has taken the time to read my little blog. I hope that you find some inspiration here, I find so much inspiration from all of you. I am a better person for being part of the blogging community.

Blessings to you for 2011.

  7. Happy new year dear olga!
    What a beautiful post you have written- you are so very talented.

    It took me way too many years to realize what you have written- I am so happy for you that you were so much smarter than I was. I can tell you are a wonderful mother and I love my visits here. You are a wonderful spirit.

    Sweet blessings to you and your family Olga.

  8. Happy New Year, Olga! I too believe in intentions rather than resolutions. :)

    You are wise to put yourself first. Being a young mother is not an easy job whatsoever.We need to nurture yourself inn order to nurture others. Many people forget that.

    I've been committed to daily yoga practice too. . . and being present.

    may this year be (at least) as wonderful as your last year.
