Where it all begins

As the school summer holidays come to an end I am thinking more and more of my desire to set my day up well. So I have signed up for Hello Mornings


It is quite timely then that I received my copy of Desperate and will be joining in the book studies with Amanda

and with Sarah Mae

because as much as I think I will get around to doing something,  I will actually do something when I have something to follow and be accountable to.  So I will be posting here, reflecting on how I am going and making the first step toward setting up my day well.

One Little Word

The journey continues.  I have put together my definitions and chosen a focus for each month
With my focus on chosing the words I wanted I have copied the layout and ideas from Ali using my own stash and type.  

Looking forward to what is enough for me this year.

One Little Word

My word for 2013


1.adequate for the want or need; sufficient for the purpose or to satisfy desire: enough water; noise enough to wake the dead.
pronoun adequate quantity or number; sufficiency.
adverb a quantity or degree that answers a purpose or satisfies a need or desire; sufficiently.
4.fully or quite: ready enough.

After putting together my series on enough at the end of last year I wanted to carry it through and allow it to be a part of who I am.

Last year my word was define. My idea was that I would finally get to writing my mission statement and setting my goals.  To put together my project of defining me.  Yet I ended the year in a very different place.  To define means to set the meaning of and determine the boundaries of a word.  So to define me I had to strip away everything that didn't fit with me.  It meant simplifying my life.  Clearing the clutter and the unfinished projects and deciding what I really wanted to be doing and who I want to be.

I came across this verse while clearing my diary from 2012.  Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed -  PROV 16:3.  After reading this post by Amanda at Always Amanda and this post at To Overflowing. I need to remember that while I have plans and dreams I always need to leave room for God to write the story.  So here is to this year and living a full life of white space and margin by discovering what is enough.

I choose - January

This year I want to be more deliberate about the choices that I make. I had ideas about what I wanted to achieve last year. Some of them happened and others are still in the dream stage. Mainly it was because I wasn't clear about where I was headed. So I am taking the class I choose at Big Picture Classes. Elise is so inspiring.  You can find her at enJOY it. Each month I will be setting up what I want to achieve in the coming month. So here we go!

Choices for January
Set up my journals for 2013
Relax and enjoy time with my boys
Set up the Mainly Music programme I am leading
Do one thing each day for my Big Picture classes
Set the boys up for starting school
Use what is growing in our garden for meal planning
