Friday's Letter

It FINALLY stopped raining!

Dear 2014,

I feel like I need to whisper so I don't scare you off.  This new year feels full of promise.  Scaring you off so early would not do at all.

I am finding everyone's lists of things to do this year fantastic to read and so inspiring.  Yet when I come to write my own I am frozen.

I think for this year I need to let it just be.
For you to  reveal yourself gently and gradually.
No big lists, no big plans.
To keep doing what I love and to keep loving it.
That way I hope we will grow together, steadily and organically.

I really hope that's not just a gigantic cop out by me.

I guess we'll find out.

Love, Me


  1. OH not a cop out at's brilliant. Taking it as it comes, being gentle, not pushing things...what could be better? xo

  2. Great plan Becs, and probably just what you need. You can make lists anytime, not just at the beginning of the year :)

  3. I suffer from that same inability to create my own goal list for 2014 - when considering the year ahead my mind just goes blank. And I also feel like I am avoiding something that I SHOULD be doing. I like your idea of moving slowly and organically, letting the year unfold.

  4. I feel the same way! I just can't get into goals and lists this year! I just want to live with joy and live simply!

  5. I'm glad that, among other things, you've decided to continue your Friday Letters. I appreciate your creative and insightful take on the world around you,

    Whatever you do, however you do it, the very best to you for 2014.
