I just KNOW it's gonna be a good year!
Some years I don't make too many resolutions
but most years I just say the same things as I've always said.
Do my Art
Blah, Blah, Blah.
So this year, what are my resolutions?
All of the above of course but most importantly it's to change my priorities.
I never seem to have time for making my Art
or writing my books.
I have so many ideas and yet I never find the time...
So I'm going to find time.
I might let some things fall through the cracks
but I'm going to work it out.
I might have to cut back on work hours.
I might have to let the new girl take some of them
and while that scares me, both in a financial way
and in a caretaker way, (not to say she's not a good caretaker)
but it's hard for me not to micro-manage.
But if I don't step back a little bit
I'll never get the things done that I'm always talking about.
And wouldn't it be ironic if something I create takes off
and I don't have to work so many hours.
Also, I HAVE TO start taking care of MYSELF.
I hate to whine about aches and pains but
I've been having some problems with my knee
and foot problems.
I'm finding that I have to hold on to the stair railing in order to walk down the steps
for the first time in my life.
It might just be part of getting older but
I've also put on too many pounds.
I hate seeing photos of myself anymore and the other day
I was looking at someone else's photos of Christmas Eve at my stepmom's.
The photo showed the little kids opening presents and in the background
was a woman I didn't recognize.
It was me.
I was shocked,
Do I look like that?!
Evidently so, although I don't FEEL like that.
I need to get the weight off and stop eating fast and easy junk.
Not a diet though.
No, more of a conscious way of eating.
I plan to go the Fork over Knives route.
Anyway... that's the plan.
AND to start focusing on enjoying the NOW.
I'm always careful with money but...
I'm going to start going to the random movie
and stopping and getting a yummy coffee
and get a first ever manicure.
If I've learned anything this year, it's that life is short.
So many celebrities died young this year
and several people I know quite well
are stricken with Cancer...
I'm going to stop worrying
and THAT'S a really hard one for me
and put it out to The Universe that things will work out and be OK.
So that's my resolutions.
#1. Re-prioritize my time and work on my Art.
#2. To think about my health
I will still enjoy an occasional treat
but I'll savor it, and not just mindless snack.
