"Make it your habit not to be critical about small things." ~ Edward Everett Hale
This past year has been soured by little grace for my husband and for myself, little patience for this life that we have and little time for love and acceptance. For the new year, my intention is to be softer on myself and especially on him. To trust his good intentions and to accept our flaws and grow together into a much happier, healthier couple. I want to cherish more, critique less; enjoy more, fix less; more present and content in our life.
I am taking the month of January to be mindful in thinking about this new year. Finding thoughts and ideas that capture what I want to hold on to in the year to come. I have traded out the word "resolutions" and replaced it with "intentions". It feels kinder, less condemning of the past choices and living, more proactive and optimistic. I will be sharing these thoughts and intentions throughout the month.
