How often have we preached that
age should never be a deterrent to anything?
2016 is the year that I vow to advocate this mantra throughout every single act of every single day. Acts which might seem nondescript or even trivial to some but for me, will be momentous (if somewhat tremulous, tentative) steps towards being the person I was meant to be.
ACROSS BLOG. PERSONAL LIFE. AS WIFE AND AS MOTHER.
To be more genuine.
To be more present.
To understand, and accept, that things grow, and change.
And if that change leads me in the direction I was meant to take, to not fight it.
To produce work that is honest and truthful. To stop being apologetic for sharing personal issues, thoughts and opinions in a seemingly public forum. To know when to take a moment to pause and rest. And to not apologise for that either. To regain perspective. Write to the best of my abilities. To remove myself from stats, expectations and perceptions, and, quite simply, to live the fullest life possible.
AND THAT IS MY MANIFESTO FOR THIS NEW YEAR. WHAT'S YOURS?
As I was saying to Debbie recently, salut to you, my friends, and salut to 2016.
May the new year bring with it many more moments to share and bond over (be they sartorial or otherwise), to inspire and be inspired, and to remain true to ourselves for only then can we grow and live fully.
With love for a blessed year ahead, Sheela
