Hello my dearest Blog Friends,
Today, January 7th marks the beginning of 2014 for me, Decor by Christine and this blog. Prior to this, I was still in holiday mode with the girls. It should have started yesterday but I wasn’t feeling well, so today it is! Apparently yesterday, January 6th or the first day back at work after the holidays is the most depressing day of the year….so maybe that’s why I wasn’t feeling well. Well, we can’t have any of that anymore, can we? So without further ado, let’s jump into what I call my mantras for 2014.
I don’t do resolutions — because I always break them or never keep them. But a mantra — see definition below — is something I can almost beat my own drum to. Does that make sense?
Definition of the word Mantra
1. (in Hinduism and Buddhism) a sacred word or formula repeated as an incantation.
2. any often repeated word, formula, or stock phrase; slogan.
Also, within the blogosphere, many bloggers have come up with a word for 2014 or even a song. I’ve never done this so I decided this year I will. So drum roll please……..
My one word for 2014 is
(I can’t find the source for this….but it was pinned from Pinterest)
I found that in 2013, I always had the best intentions of doing this or that. For example, putting together an Operations Manual for Decor by Christine which has been on the back-burner for over 6 months; or updating the Portfolio section on my website — because Houzz just became so convenient for viewing it; and last, personal home decor projects that I have been talking about for a year and have not yet completed — soooo frustrating! And so not good! This year, it’s all about ACTION!! The poster above says it perfectly!!
