thumbs upThis is like part my new year’s resolutions, part a diary entry, part a declaration of what I want in life. There is something magical about a new beginning and reassessing where you are and where you want to be. But, be careful, don’t linger in the past. It is exactly that, past. You can’t change it so don’t dwell on it. Reflect, but do it with the utmost love and forgiveness for yourself.

FEAR: I am done with fear. I am tired of worrying about what people think of me. I am tired of being scared to follow my gut. I am tired of following the unwritten rules because I am afraid to live by my own set. Look out world, I’m coming for you.

FITNESS: I am going to get to the point that I can do anything physical without thinking twice. Tennis? Sure! Go for a hike? Of course! 5K tomorrow? Yep! Anything that comes along I will be capable of doing.

WEIGHT: I seriously don’t care about how much I weigh any more. Am I comfortable in what I wear? If yes, than I am good. I love my body. Why should I worry about whether other people do?

BRAIN: I am going to feed my brain daily. I am going to cherish and protect it like the magical creation that it is. I am going to read books that overwhelm me, that inspire me, that teach me, that challenge me, that fill me up.

SLEEP: I am going to make sleep my bitch!

LOVE: I am going to be fair with my love. I am going to love more and ‘mad’ less. I will try to praise before I criticize. I will end fights at that moment when you realize that you are actually just frustrated about something else.

KIDS: I am just going to keep loving them with all of my capabilities. I will not worry that they don’t have something, or that they can’t be in everything, or that they were ‘bored’ yesterday. I will not compare myself to other moms. All they need is my love and my time.

BUSY: I am going to keep on saying NO. I simply don’t like being busy. I am not going to feel guilty about that anymore.

HAPPY: I am going to make this the hap hap happiest year since Bing Crosby danced with Danny f’ing Kay… But, seriously, life is amazing and I have so much to be grateful for. I love my life and I am going to focus on my special brand of happy.

CHEERS!
