Of course, there is a significant overlap between hopes and ambitions and it my aim to achieve all the things I have hoped for, but I have a few more goals as well.
As many of you know, back in September I began the Midweek Minimise Challenge
, and I have slowly chipped away at decluttering, but there is a long way to go. I plan to ensure the project gets completed this year. I am sure many people would think it ridiculous that it could take over a year to declutter such a small flat. But I have to factor in the Fibro and my limited spoons and adding unnecessary stress would be ultimately counterproductive. One thing I haven’t clarified to date is although I am minimising I do not want to become a minimalist, at least not in all areas of my life. I was recently watching this fascinating YouTube video
by Clutterbug, one of channels I follow. I have worked out that when it comes to the craft area, I am a bee, in other areas I am closer to being a Cricket. Michael, on the other hand, is somewhere between a Ladybird and a Butterfly (why does he get the more beautiful insects?). I am looking forward to watching her future videos and working out a suitable compromise for our organisation styles and organisation is something I am going to talk about a little bit further down this post.
I was thrilled when one of my greetings cards featured in the craft magazine that provided the die I used to make it as I shared with my Instagram followers last month:
It is my ambition to make sure this isn’t a one-time event and to keep improving my crafting ability to be able to join a design team hopefully.
I take my pleasure as seriously as my work, and I am aiming to get as many achievements within WoW as possible. WoW is World of Warcraft for the non-gamers. Michael introduced me to MMO (Massively Multimedia Online) Games not long into our relationship, before then I hadn’t ventured much further than Candy Crush or Farmville. I have played a couple of others, and I may well revisit Elder Scrolls Online at some point, but for the last couple of years, I have been very much enjoying WoW. If you are interested in the character I play you can see my details here
or more specifically my achievement progression here
, there is still plenty to do. I previously mentioned why I play WoW in this post about Addictive Personality Types
, and it is nothing really to do with war at all.
My final ambition is something I have been striving over for several years. It is to be able to say I am completely happy with my level of organisation. I am fully aware that things like organisation are scalable and in comparison to many people I would probably be considered pretty organised. For my personality type, this isn’t enough though I need to be very organised (Crickets and bees again…). It hasn’t helped that I have been dancing around between paper and digital systems for years, but with the help of some of my Christmas Presents I mentioned in Wednesday’s post
, I think I am working towards finding the right hybrid systems for me.
