Ease

EASE

It’s gone a little quiet here at KnitHQ since Christmas, as we (Stephen & I) moved in January into our first (co-owned) home, with a proper grown-up mortgage. The lead up to the move was very exciting, but has been a far greater upheaval, than I think either of us had anticipated. I don’t think we realised quite how settled we were in our previous little rented flat, which was nicely decorated, in good working condition, & situated in the pretty (& rather posh) bit of Winchester.

The new flat, although lovely, is also a little smaller, (thank god we have a loft to stash heaps of stuff in) and needs a little updating. We’re currently living with old-fashioned storage heaters, (who ever through they were a good idea??!) and what we think to be the flats original bathroom and kitchen, dating perhaps from the late 60’s/early 70’s. The first couple of weeks we moved in I think we both felt a little displaced, like we were living in someone else’s flat, coupled with boxes to go through in every corner, meant it’s taken us a good 5/6 weeks to feel settled & at home here.

So it has taken me a little longer than last year to settle on my word of the year, a la Susannah Conway, as have been a little distracted. Last years word; E X P A N D,  really fed me during a period of real growth for my business, and felt just right for a year of pushing myself forwards.

This year I was initially mulling over the idea of ‘Brave’, although the more I thought about it, the more tired and overwhelmed I felt, not how I’m aiming to feel at all!

So after more mulling, and pondering, I have arrived at E A S E. Just saying that word makes me feel more relaxed. I feel like I’ve been really pushing for success the past couple of years, and this sometimes left me depleted, and unbalanced in other areas of my life. I feel like I need to find more easy ways to make things happen for my business. Making decisions that support me, and don’t mean that I have to work all the hours to make it happen. So E A S E it is, and I couldn’t be more ready for it.
