Hi everyone and Happy 2015!
I know that a lot of bloggers are doing their “Best of…….2014” posts right now, not me! I’m ready to move forward and grab 2015 by the horns!
RESOLUTIONS…. I gave them up years ago. It always seemed that I would set myself up to fail. I don’t know why that is but, it happened all the time. Not to mention, I felt this pressure and guilt over these resolutions. What a sad way to bring in a new year! I have plenty of pressure without adding to it. So NO RESOLUTIONS for me!
I prefer the word GOALS. Why? After all, the two words almost mean the same thing.
For me, the word resolution gained a bad rap in my mind. It represented pressure….failure….guilt. Not words or feelings I wished to add to my daily life. It’s kind of like the word Diet. It no longer means what daily nutrients your body needs instead it means negative thoughts. I think most of you know what I am talking about.
So, I have been working on a 2015 Goal list.
I have a lot of things I want and need to do this coming year. So many things have slid by me over the last couple of years. My life was a bit of a rollercoaster ride and quite frankly, I want off that ride!
Many of you long time readers of TTG know that I have dealt with and gone through some rather life-changing events over the past few years. I thought last year I was ready to deal with some issues, I did deal with changes in some areas but, I let a lot of “me” remain deeply buried. However, I think maybe I needed that extra time. I am ready to take back my life in all areas and move ahead.
I feel incredibly blessed by all of you that have stuck with me here at TTG. This past year my poor blog went semi-dormant. It really had to. Our little business took on a life of itself and I needed to dedicate a huge part of me to that. Of course, DTL Herbs has a lot more big changes coming but, mentally I think I have more to give. Does that make sense?
No more of those humongous outrageous demands on ourselves. One day at a time. Small steps in the right direction are part of my goals. Let each step become a positive change.
I know I am not the only one out there that feels overwhelmed and wants to gain some control back in their lives. Am I?
About a year or so ago, I started “Share 3 Things You Accomplished Today” on my Facebook page. I did this because some days it took everything I had simply to do the dishes or do a load of laundry. And even when I did this who knew? Who cared? It’s not like when you have a job outside the house and your boss tells you “good job”. You get no credit or praise for dealing with all these minor things that keeps a home running. And we all need that sense of accomplishment. I post this every evening at 7:00 pm (EST time). Please feel free to add your daily accomplishments! Sometimes many of us just say, “Got dressed, read my book and took a nap”. And that is totally fine because we all have days like that.
Okay, we will talk more later! Thank you for taking the time to drop by. I hope you have a wonderful new year!
