Resolutions

So it's that time of year again....that time when you look to the year ahead as a clean slate and make resolutions to do better, be better....

Last year I tried to keep things simple and just concentrate on being Happy...and being myself...being less negative..

I have to say ...this has probably been one of my happiest years ever...and I think alot of that has to do with attitude and choosing to be and do what makes me happy. I still struggle with knowing what I want and following thru...

One thing I want for this coming year is to really take care of myself...take charge of my weight...my health.....my time....my creativity. I need to concentrate on being and doing what "I" feel is important and not let what OTHERS think I should be or do interfere so much.

Update: I was just reading over at HomemakerAngs blog, and she had this quote by Rhonda Jean :

"Imagine your own life, and how you want it to be, then work to make that vision a reality. Don’t be put off, don’t listen to the naysayers, go with your heart and do what is right for you. I’m a non-conformist and I don’t fit in the 60 year old woman pigeonhole. I have always walked to the beat of my own drum and I have never looked to those around me for validation. That has helped me build this life I live. If I’d listened to all the advice I got when I wanted to change, I’d still be running a red hot credit card and wondering “is this all there is?”.One of the great wonders of this world to me is that we’re all the same but all so different. Celebrate your difference and custom-make a life that fits you perfectly. Forget the blathering of women’s magazines, don’t do what your next door neighbour is doing, don’t copy your friends – or me – unless it is exactly what you want and need for yourself. Make your own version of this simple life. Life is never a one-size-fits-all condition, pick and choose the portions of other people lives that suit you and custom make the rest of it so that your life fits you perfectly. If you try something that doesn’t work, don’t be afraid to get rid of it, or modify it to suit yourself. Do it all slowly, take small steps. You will never build a simple life quickly – it’s a slowly evolving process that never ends, but one thing is for sure, if you dare to be different, if you are mindful of your choices, if you downsize, declutter and get back to basics, the rewards are there for the taking."


This is exactly how I want to spend the next year. I want to be true to myself . I feel there are so many different facets of who I am...and I want to find a way to mesh them together into one great ME. So this year I'm goin to start experimenting with who I am and what I like to do and see what works...I'm going to worry less about what I 'should" be or do and just
BE and DO the things I really want.

Hey Maggii I wish you a great 2009 being the very best and happiest you can be. I love your attitude and I'm sure you will be successful because you know what you want and aren't afraid to go for it! I'm going to try to take your advice and do the same thing! Good luck to us both!

We are working on a simple life. It takes a ton of work to get there, but I feel like we are slowly getting somewhere. Be patient with yourself through the changes!

I enjoyed reading your post! Have a great new year!
