Around this time every year, people make New Year’s resolutions. These can range from losing weight, gossiping less, exercising more or ceasing bad habits. I heard that Britney Spears wants to stop biting her nails. But I digress…
I have found that New Years resolutions NEVER work for me. I have GREAT intentions but they always fall to the wayside around the 2nd week in January…if I last that long! So this year, I am not make New Year’s resolutions. I am making life changes. I am moving forward and doing things to better my life. I don’t want to wait anymore.
Now what might these changes be? Some are small and some are overwhelmingly huge, but I am ready. I am now 30-something years old and what am I waiting for?? I only have one life and I am tired of not living it to the fullest.
Now, before I go any further, I want to spare you the details if you don’t want to know. From now on, I will title these posts “Moving Forward” so if you do not want to read about my joys and pains with these changes, then by all means, please skip that day! That is my disclaimer.
So I thought that listing some of these goals to you, my wonderful readers, will help me to stay more accountable. I give you FULL permission to give me a hard time if I start slipping into passive oblivion! I won’t list all the goals I have but here are just a few….
1. No matter how much I enjoy food, I am not going to let it control my life anymore. I am going to be sensible and stick to a plan. In case anyone cares, I started Slim-Fast today. And I am VERY pleased to report that the Slim-Fast shakes actually taste good!
2. Pending some financial roadblocks, I am going to join the YMCA. I am going to learn yoga. I am going to do water aerobics. I am not going to be afraid.
3. I am going to work harder on learning photography…including, Photoshop (the thorn in my side). I am going to take more pictures and take more time for this hobby.
4. I am going to get Shoebox Full of Memories going. I will have more information on that by February. I promise.
Well, there is a little sneak peek into the mind of Little Miss Bossy today. Thanks for reading. Happy New Year!!
