Planning for better

I was doing really well with my 30 Days of Thanks and then life struck. When it rains it pours and sometimes it's hard to do anything but subsist and survive. We all are fine though and in good health and spirits. People are truly resilient creatures. 

There is so much to write though. I did a lot of baking for the holidays with delicious goodies from my Foodie Penpal and started a new hobby. There is also the awesomeness that is Bug's Christmas kitchen with a little image tutorial. Let's just say we are awesome Santa's elves. 

I'm excited to start moving forward with blogging and life in 2014. It's going to be a fun year and I am planning for better this time. I don't plan much but I decided to try and think of what I'd like my life and home to be more like. It's not super fun and it's kind of overwhelming but I think avoiding it just makes me feels stuck and in a rut. 

My hopes are that I can plan my way into a more fulfilling life. I'm pretty fulfilled and happy now but there are always areas for improvement. My Dad always said that you never stop learning and to some extent hats true. I know I find joy in learning and experiencing new things. I just haven't made it a high enough priority this last year. 

I have a habit of collecting self help or inspirational books and journals. I skim them with the best intentions but they never leave the shelf. I hope to change that this year. I'm inspired to make changes. 
I have all the tools but now I need to find the time.
