How I plan to do it

Hi there
I'm not one for New Year resolutions
I have thoughts and ideas though
and out of all of them
this little motto
seemed to shine
the brightest.
So,I'm going to
cross my heart
and do it
with all my very
best of best.
I've spent 40 odd years 
complicating it, 
Now I feel it's time to rewind a little
peel away the layers
and simply embrace 
what really matters.
Have you got a shining star in your thoughts for 2012?
I'd love to hear 


  1. How funny but I was thinking this last night. I normally choose a word for the year and last night I thought live simply. Seems so simple! Happy new year x

  2. Happy new year Penelope, I hope 2012 is a good one for you xx

  3. great minds.... and i love the image. xx

  4. What a great idea, and so simple! And the image is really sweet xxx

  5. That sounds like an excellent idea!
    Happy New Year xx

  6. Sounds just perfect! I would definitely like to be a bit more simple ;-)

    The best resolutions are the ones you can do and want to do.

    2012 is going to be a good one I'm sure!

  7. Brilliant! I have had the same mantra for the last few years. Sadly life sometimes has other ideas and my best intentions aren't enough. I'll be trying again in 2012, harder! Good luck Penelope. Wishing you a simply lived 2012 x

  8. Good luck with your plans for 2012. I too long for a more simple life and am planning a big clearout in January which I hope will make for a tidier house and a calmer mind!! xx

  9. I have decided to declutter my life which is a bit of a mission, but the end result is to have a simpler life - I've spent years collecting things that I really dont really need, so it is time to reduce the - unwanted/not needed and feel calmer and less cluttered - good luck with your resolution :)
