Two days ago I attended a friends funeral. She was 54. She has left behind a husband, 3 children under the age of 14 and a menagerie of animals. She fought against ovarian cancer until her dying breath. She was not going to give in without a fight. She lived the last five years of her life to the full. She spent many days out with her family capturing memories in photos, she decorated her house regularly, spent weekends away, joined the National Trust, put a fishpond in her garden and started to grow vegetables.
I am going to live by her example. I am going to live my life to the full and just 'get on with it' as she did.
My word for 2012 is 'create'. I am going to make time for all kinds of creative pursuits and hopefully show them here on the blog. Do you have a word to focus on in 2012?
