If 2014 was the year of getting things done, 2015 is the year I want to do more.
Let me make sense of that. There’s no doubt that in the last 12 months we’ve achieved a lot on the house renovation. In doing so, we’ve worked hard, committed a lot of time, energy and money and inevitably sacrificed other things.
We had to do it, to be able to enjoy the rewards. 2015 will be far more enjoyable because of all we did last year. Away for a day or weekend, I’ve no doubt we’ll feel far more content knowing the home we have made to come back to.
Our personal circumstances left us a little uncertain about the future and more cautious with money last year. In 2015 that may still be the case but this year I want to not put things on hold so much – I want to see and experience more.
I had too much of a tendency to say I’d do something when X has happened or after Y. Well, maybe I can’t do that particular thing right now. But is there something else I can do instead? Something that might end up being just as fulfilling, albeit in a different way?
In 2015 I want to do, instead of not do or make do.
