The holidays are officially over. Iona and Joe are back to school today, Mark is back to work and I have to make a start on our end-of-year accounts.
I am not very good at New Year’s resolutions. I think resolutions should be made at any time of the year, not just on New Year’s Day, when to be honest I’m usually feeling a bit flat after all the twinkly lights, sparkly tinsel, and glittery things have all been packed away until next year.
Having said that, yesterday we went out for a very long walk and stopped for a very welcome hot chocolate, and with our drinks came a small piece of paper that was tied with a pink ribbon. Resolutions.
My ‘resolution’ was to defrost the fridge more than once every five years… How can this cafe owner know the true state of my freezer?
Since then I’ve been thinking. Meditation. It keeps springing into my mind. I don’t know anything about meditation, but I do think it could be a very positive thing. To benefit, would I need to meditate daily? What does it involve? Not too keen on taking on the Buddhist angle… a book is required.
Maybe this is a New Year’s resolution. To explore the benefits of meditation.
