Move LifeStyle

2013

“I want to live the rest of my life, however long or short, with as much sweetness as I can decently manage, loving all the people I love, and doing as much as I can of the work I still have to do. — Audre Lorde

To me, winter always lends itself to self-contemplation — the time spent indoors, the shorter days, the cooler light all seem to beckon us to turn inwards during this time of the year. Personally I’ve been spending time

I love January because its a time to pause and decide to make different choices.

reconnecting with my husband after a busy year, reassessing my financial life, and taking stock of what makes me happy.  I’m also taking stock of what doesn’t make me happy, those ‘obligations’ and ‘shoulds’ that I want to slough off like so much dried skin.  In the new year, I want my life to become smoother, more beautiful, like a pebble shaped by the tossing of waves, happily relinquishing its rough edges.  This year, I’m not going to hold myself to specifics, but I’ll move forward with the idea that the things I do during my week should help to make my happiness a reality. I’ll ask myself, “Will this make me stronger, healthier and more deeply connected to myself?”

In the theme of looking inward, this month we’re trying something a little different. Every day we’ll be serving up bite-sized advice from experts in different fields to help us all make life a little better, brighter, more creative and more efficient for 2013.  We know you’re busy and we know you get just as tired of flash-in-the-pan New Year’s Resolutions as we do, so all of these ideas can be accomplished in under ten minutes a day.  They’re here for you to draw inspiration from, for you to comb through and pull out the ones that speak directly to you.   Think of this month as a chance to connect with yourself on a deeper level, get closer to what makes you happy, and take control of the balance in ‘work-life balance’ for yourself this year.

Let’s start the journey…
