I am not sure what the New Year will bring. ( My crystal ball is all foggy) I have finally decided on my one word intention for 2018.
I thought about lots of different words…none seemed just right. Persue…persist…get on with it (that was three words)…
I kept coming back to one word…last year my word was ongoing…as I had many ongoing projects. WELL I still have some of those projects and will probably add to them sometime soon….make a list and check it thrice…
My word for 2018 is EXPLORE. That may seem adventurous to you…in my world not so much.
I need to explore all the nooks and crannies in this house and clean them out…get rid of what we don’t need. We have way too much stuff for two people…the 19 years we have lived in this house we have just kept accumulating “stuff”.
I want to explore several new hobbies…learn something new. I know I don’t need more hobbies…but I have one project I really want to accomplish….it has been 31 years in the making…more on that some other day.
I want to explore a few different places in Minnesota…nothing too far away.
I want to explore more family history. I want to see the church my Great Grandfather helped to build in Annandale Minnesota. I want to photograph my Great Great Grandmothers/Grandfathers Graves…I want to search for their obituaries.
I want to explore more area cemeteries and continue volunteer work with Find A Grave.
I need to explore more settings on my camera. I need to make more time for that golden hour in the morning and just before sunset to take more photos.
I need to explore a few more antique shops…for Forgotten Photos…I have no shortage at the moment but some day I might…this may seem counter productive…but it is a passion of mine that I am not willing to give up at the moment.
With all that exploring…I might need to explore my eyelids every afternoon to make sure they have no holes in them.
What would be your one word intention for 2018? Do you have one?
Here is a greeting from 1912.
Happy New Year!
