Follow Your Feet Outdoors Hiking Exploring Explore Road Less Travelled Adventure

One of my favourite movies is A Knight’s Tale starring the late Heath Ledger. There are two quotes from the movie that I would like to dedicate this new year to.

The first quote is Follow Your Feet. I may not be going hiking like the picture depicts above… or maybe I will… we will have to see where I follow my feet! This year, 2015, I am hoping to be more adventurous than I have been in the past… some years have been more adventurous than others though… and see where the year takes me. This year I pledge to take the road less travelled and follow my own path.

The second motto I have chosen for 2015 is Change Your Stars. In A Knight’s Tale Heath Ledger’s character is told by his father to change his stars and by the movie’s end, he definitely does make a complete turnabout in terms of where he is in his life and who he is. (I won’t spoil it for those of you who may not have seen the movie already.)

One change I have already made in my life is that I accepted a new job opportunity. I started working full-time at the beginning of December (December 2nd to be exact) as an administrative assistant. This has been an overwhelming change for my family and myself.

After six years of being a stay-at-home/work-at-home mom to being a work outside the home mom is taking some great adjustments and a lot of juggling. I am still not sure if the position is the right fit for me but I am giving it my best shot. Some days are easier than others. Some days I want to quit. For the most part, I am enjoying the challenge a new opportunity presents.

One thing that I do like about the position is my co-workers. Each one has welcomed me into the fold with open arms and each has helped guide me in fulling my duties. I really appreciate their continued support as well as their patience!

Do you have a motto for 2015? Did you make any new year’s resolutions?

Happy new year friends!

    My chosen motto for 2015 is ” Be the change you want to see in the world.” A quote from Ghandi. This applies to virtually everything around us, from how people treat each other to our environment….. To ourselves!
