You know what’s crazy? The resolves should be listed everywhere.
And you know what’s also crazy? I was reviewing the past year and saw that I really attempted to live by those words. It’s a good thing I didn’t read about it a year ago.
Here’s a quick recap of the past year:
- Changed gears and took an active role in my well-being
- In stepping off the ledge and taking the risk, good stuff happened
- Had the desire to make a change and actually made the change
- Trusted my instincts
- Control my anger
- Started this blog
- Became an aunt 🙂
And this is what I hope to accomplish this year:
- De-clutter my home as it will de-clutter my mind
- If it’s broken, fix it, mend it or throw it out
- Scanning is a friend to all. PDF it and get rid of the extra paper (unless important)
- Set the intention for my big goal this year, believe that it will happen and let it go.
On Friday, I posted on Facebook that 2011 was a great year. Some responded that it wasn’t. I just so happen to know that though some of my friends had a tumultuous year, they had some good stuff happen to them as well. Sometimes we get so mired in the negative (I should know as I was the queen of negativity) that we don’t see the good. Therefore, I made them list 3 moments of happiness and gratitude.
Last year wasn’t all roses for me. I chose the wrong health insurance in haste. As a result, I was unable to buy my medication for my MS (which even with aid is expensive). I had to change paths and walk the path of wellness and alternative treatment. I haven’t had an episode…to date.
We also had to deal with some old finances for our theater company, Black Henna. Though very painful, it made me realize that there are other means to maintaining one of my dreams without the fear of living in a tent community.
And lastly, I finally let go of a 16 year resentment against someone I love. Though extremely difficult (I fought it a lot), I found another way to love without hurting myself.
So, now you have to write down 3 great things that happened for you last year and your resolves for the new you.
