I have been wrapping my little girl since the first week of her life. Tightly enveloped by the woven wrap we caught the eye of many people and interest of passing parents. Soon I realised there is a need in Denmark to spread the goodness of babywearing.
So, last weekend I completed a professional consultancy course in the ClauWi® school of babywearing. Now, equipped with knowledge and refined tying techniques I am prepared to help other parents grow in confidence and skill to babywear themselves.
But why, you may ask, would anyone want to babywear in the first place?
Happy New Year!
The unwavering time urges us forward into yet another set of twelve months. I hope this one will bring positive lasting change in our lives. In other words I hope that we won’t just grow older, but grow up a little.
For many, first of January is the first test of their new year resolutions. To be successful those need to come with a plan and a heart that is ready for change. Often, they don’t and the resolution gets dusty and forgotten by the end of the month.
Maybe you can tell? I am not a big fan of New Year resolutions. Instead I pick one word to focus on for following 365 days.
A little over a year ago, in the cold and wet month of February, I got tired of feeling tired. The fact that in the past two years I also gained weight was hard to ignore. Something had to change.
I had a gut feeling that my diet was the common denominator of my problems. And me, being me, I did not want to simply jump onto the latest trendy diet bandwagon. Instead I was willing to do the leg work and research first.
If I am to work towards a better life I might as well work towards the best life I can envision. So how does it look to have a great marriage? How does it feel to have fruitful relationships? How do you live if money is not an issue?
Time to think and dream big! Every priority in our lives deserves a picture of the perfect future. So I ask: How do I envision the ideal future?
Priorities are easy to identify when we develop an awareness of what’s important to us. Knowing how we want to be remembered, we now ask: What matters most? What is important to me?
The list of possibilities is endless: your children, spouse, family, God, finances, career, health, friends, that big dream, having fun… When you seek out the answers beware of the expectations set on us by others. They can easily skew what we feel is important.
