Dreaming and scheming

We have successfully made it through the first month of the year! How are everybody's resolutions going? 
I didn't make any, because history has taught me that I suck at keeping them. In order to avoid disappointment and beating myself up, I quit that bad habit years ago. So, I guess you could say that I'm winning in the resolutions-front, since I kept my only resolution of not making any. Huzzah!

Instead, I chose DETERMINATION (in capital letters!) as my word of the year. And you know what?
It is a very appropriate word for this year. I feel like I'm possessed. In a good way. It's as if I have been asleep for a few years, and finally, I woke up and realized what I have been missing for so long.
It's probably the excess vitamin D talking, since my system isn't used to so much sunshine in the winter. But I feel full of energy, and, lately, full of optimism, and it's awesome

I've been doing lots of reading and writing. Lots. And it's helping me in figuring out how I would like my life to look like, if I were to be the master of my destiny. Which lots of self-help books claim, I already am! Let's test them, shall we?

Here is my perfect life: 
- I want to finish my memoir this year, and find an agent and publisher. (The memoir is coming along!)
- I would love to host goat-yoga sessions at our place! We have goats, we have a gorgeous property, I love yoga - now I just have to put these puzzle pieces together. Welp!
- I want to work 2-3 times a week at the local hospital, to stay grounded, do what I love, and select material for my next book ... πŸ’

And that's it in a nutshell for my professional life. 

Omg, do you know that I never had such a clear vision for myself in my entire life?? And I'm 37 years old!
Turning it into reality is another challenge altogether, but to be honest, for now I'm just beyond thrilled to finally having found my passion. 
It sure took long enough!

  1. Thank you for introducing me to the concept of goat yoga haha! I'd never heard of that before!

    1. It's a new thing, but so awesome! Goats are very social, and they love to jump and climb, so they're perfect yoga buddies! Most zen goagis (goats+yogis) ever😜❤

  2. I have faith that you will get all your goals.
    LOVING this outfit too Miriam. So cute!

    1. Thank you Mary πŸ˜™πŸ’•
      I'm re-watching the show "Nashville" again, and I'm totally back into everything country. Yee-haw!

  3. Good for you and your clear vision! Adorable photos too. My phrase of 2017 is "steady relaxed pace ambition" rather than frenzied crazy energy!

    Have a fun weekend & thanks for linking up!

    1. I love your phrase! Very wise, and it will make life so much easier πŸ™
      Have a great Sunday!

  4. Good for you! I love all your goals and vision. This is going to be an awesome year for you and yours - including the goats. :)

    1. I hope that all of us find ways to create our own, peaceful havens in these tumultuous times. We need it. Goats definitely help! ;-)
