My wishes for 2023
I'll be honest with you, I'm a little anxious about the new year. The past year has been so intense, that it makes me slightly sick to my stomach to think that I'm diving back into such intensity.
I imagine there are some of you who recognize yourselves? 🙋♀️
Normally, it's the long list of new resolutions that weigh on my shoulders. You know the one that shines through with too much goodwill and too much beauty.
For me, it's just continuing at this pace that makes me dizzy in advance. Vacations are good... they allow me to take a step back.
So, I'm giving myself the month of January to see what I can lighten my schedule, lighten my mental load and leave room for creation.
On this note, I wish you a year 2023 that breathes,
in which you will feel good
and that will be open to creativity.
N.B.: Don't hesitate to share with me your resolutions for 2023, or your tips to start the year with serenity.
