The Empty Pickle Jar- My Resolution

I have been doing a lot of thinking about priorities. About time, family, friends and also myself. 
There will be some changes.
I'll keep my jobs and I will continue with my voluntary work with kidney health

I'm going to let go of the Growers Market 
I'm also stepping back from Living Better With Less.
There is every reason to believe that these things will go on without me just fine and the world will surely keep turning but it is time for me to shift my priorities and time effectiveness.
I am embracing my grandmother-hood-ness!
Teaching is like tossing pebbles onto a still pond.
In the last four years I have been gratified to have lost count of the ripples and I am grateful for the opportunities and the growth I have also gained.
Loving this suburban life.


  1. I love every new year just for that reason - it gives us a chance to reflect and re-prioritise which is always a good thing, isn't it? A new year has so much potential for a whole new slate if we just step back and have a close look at where we've been putting our energies. I'm sure all those people you have nurtured, will be grateful to you and will now be able to carry on from the grounding you've laid.
    Wishing you all the very best for whatever new endeavours you undertake this year. xx

  2. It's always liberating to make these kind of decisions, Tanya. Good on you and all the best for 2015 xx

  3. sounds like you've made some well thought out decisions Tanya. It's good to stop and look occasionally at what we are doing and if it is still serving us well, I feel that it's all too easy to just keep doing it because "I've always done that" even when it's no longer what we want or need.

    cheers Kate

  4. I, too, have released some burdens for the new year. Now, I look forward to focusing on some neglected projects and my own health.

    Here's to a great new year!

  5. I love the pickle jar story, amazing and so true. I'm not sure what 2015 will bring. I would like to cut back my hours at work but our business seems to get busier all the time. I do know I need to get off my iPad more and 'do' actual stuff instead of reading about it!

    Happy New Year to you!

    Cheers - Joolz xx

  6. I have had to let a few things go this year and although it was a hard decision I feel like it is the best one I could make.

  7. I had forgotten what an inspiration your blog was and this morning I fell down the rabbit hole and have spent several hours sifting and surfing. Julian (and future company) have an amazing grandmother and Tassie has a wonderful treasure in you. Your way of looking at life and living has touched so many and is proof that a gentle tread can leave a string of indelible footprints, serving to inspire and guide. Love and miss you Ms Murray X
