Happy New Year!
Long time no see! I know, I know!!! It is just awful how out of touch I have been. A thousand apologies, and few excuses. Although I have a few really good ones....
Like... Hurricane Sandy, for one.
Yes it lined up right for us, took out a bunch of trees, and our power for a week. We are all fine, many in our community or nearby are not. If you want to help Red Cross is the way to go.
I digress. Anyway, I wanted to turn the page into the new year and make a few resolutions. I for one am really happy that 2012 is behind me. I did not accomplish what I had hoped, and have found myself in a bad place spiritually, and mentally and perhaps a little physically. I worked too hard, took on too much, and have found myself very unhappy.
resolution #1- Get Happy. No matter what it takes. Find some fun, some smiles, and relieve myself of all people and things that apply pressure of any kind to my life.
resolution #2- Tell people what I think instead of bottling it up and suffering the consequences. I really stuffed down my feelings last year.
resolution #3- Get Healthy. Lose a few pounds, become more active, take care of my back, and keep the shingles at bay. Eat better, and generally try and feel better, through better sleep and positivity.
resolution #4- Find my patience. I used to be very patient with people and things. Not lately! I need to find that centered person I used to be.
resolution #5- Do not bite off more than I can chew. I am a chronic over planner, over participater, over scheduler. I have to knock it off. I need the rest. I also do not need the stress.
resolution #6- Clean my craft room- once and for all, already! Yeesh! I hate the mess, I hate being unorganized, I hate the whole thing. Yet I am so lazy to deal with it I can't stand myself.
resolution #7- Have fun while creating- Remember when I used to have fun making things? and I made videos and everything? Somewhere along the way, it stopped being fun, so I stopped doing it. I need to enjoy it again. I really liked all the fun of making things.
resolution #8- Keep up this blog- I used to enjoy writing this blog, but life intervened, and there you go. I need to make some challenges this year to keep it going.
resolution #9- Live each day to it's fullest- I have developed a bit of a lazy bone recently coming through my back pain, and the shingles. I have not felt good enough to get up and go and do much, so I don't. I need to push myself to live every minute.
resolution #10- Cherish the people in my life- I need to show my family and close friends how important they are to me.
So, it's a start! I have so many things to accomplish this year, and I can guess I will add to the list.
Have you made any resolutions?
