I don’t make New Year’s resolutions but I did write a manifesto at the beginning of our six week camping trip last summer. A declaration of my intentions for the time away from our normal routine were written on an easily accessible index card that was shoved in my pocket, my backpack, the dash of the van or wherever I was most likely to see it. And, when we returned home, I carried it in my bag where I would see it every time I went for my keys.
What served me well on my vacation continues to serve me well at home, and at the risk of sounding trite, has made home a little more like vacation.
Manifesto, resolution, intentions, mantra whatever you want to call it I plan to continue it on into 2016.
How about you? Do you make resolutions? Manifestos? A word of the year (which I can’t resist since I love individual words so much)? A theme?
