One Little Word | Refocus
At the beginning of the year I chose FOCUS as my word to incorporate into life for 2012. Throughout January, I loved setting my sights on participating in Fat Mum Slim‘s Photo a Day challenge, which gave me some of my photo mojo back. In February, I put my energy into focusing on bringing play back into our lives. It led to play being an easy part of our days and we haven’t looked back. During March I got into the habit of recording life via my Art Journaling.
In April, I lost all focus. My eyes were blurred behind tears and my mind wandered to what should have been. I have no idea what we did, where we went and I didn’t really work in my Book Of Days., so I can’t even look back at that. To be honest, I didn’t even notice that my heavy heart had made me somewhat absent until, one day, it was May and I was wondering what had happened to April. I looked in my BOD and was dismayed to find blank pages.
So. It’s May and it’s time to refocus. The blur is disappearing and I’m making plans. This month I’ve got my eyes on walking/running 6 days a week with my Ease into 5ks app and making this workout thing more of a habit and less of a chore. March is about starting to get really, truly serious about getting Fit and Fab. I have a goal of losing 8kgs by my 29th birthday.
I also already have plans for June, it will be the month of Self Love. I have a wonderful project to do with my girls to help them develop a sense of self, a way to show them there’s more to them than their looks and to show them that I am learning to love myself. I’m so excited and still tossing up whether or not to put it out there for others to join in throughout the month. This is the idea and I plan on writing something I love about the kids each day, as well as them sharing what they love about themselves. If you’re interested in doing it with your children too, let me know and I’ll write up a post with some more details and thoughts before the end of May.
Have you ever lost focus? For a whole month? How did you get yourself back in line?
