I don't believe in New Year's resolutions. Maybe that is because I never managed to quit smoking on the 1st of January, but did so in 5 seconds when I found out I was pregnant. What I do believe in though is to find and live a theme every year, like a motto. To find a motto for the next year was very easy - who am I to kid myself or you. My life is almost back to normal as my children are big. I spent the last 6 years nurturing them and (pat on the back) did a pretty good job. At least they know how to behave as soon as we are in public, so it doesn't matter that much if they forget all about manners as soon as we are home again. Anyway, I won't stop nurturing them in the future, but I will stop to complain that there is no time to live and celebrate my old self. Which includes - and everyone who knows me in person knows exactly what the next word will be - writing.
I know, that was quite some introduction for my 2010 motto, but here it is: EASY. I am only going to do things, that come easy to me. Because just as Joseph Campbell always told us: "If you follow your bliss, doors will open where there were no doors before and where there wouldn't be a door for anyone else. It's something about the integrity of a life that the world moves in and helps."
For me, the concept of EASY is not to sleep and be lazy, but to do things that create a flow and a pull at the same time. It is not about being a coach potatoe but about hard work and discipline to back up a talent and get where I belong. The moment I set my mind on this theme, doors opened (and the New Year had not even begun). I met amazing women (you know who you are) who support me in my wish to get back the girl I was formerly known as and go forward as the woman I am supposed to be. For some instance, it needed to be girls to give me the "Go". So girls, watch out, here I come. Easy.
