I am not one for looking backwards. For me, life is a delicate balance between living in the moment and planning for the future. I want to savour and enjoy each day, but I also want to create an exciting, sustainable future. I am too often conflicted between the two.
This blog is about achieving balance, enjoying each moment and making gentle progress towards future dreams and plans. For me, big dramatic changes simply don’t work; they create an uncomfortable jolt and an eventual return to old ways, with the associated sense of failure. I believe in baby steps forward each day, planned and tracked in an aesthetically pleasing, fun way. I believe in treats, treasures and savouring the seasons. My year by design is an on-line journal of my progress; it will hold me accountable and hopefully encourage others too.
