Happy New Year! Today is a gorgeous snowy day and I am smiling!
Today is a NEW DAY and I AM GLAD!
I don't think that they are really for me.
I would rather find something that resonates with me, which is why my post today is centered around a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson-- "the only person you are destined to be come is the person you decide to be"
Experts say that 8 out of 10 people who make a NYE resolution break them before February! Odds are, I would too. But, I needed something for myself to help me be better. I spent a few months trying to gain perspective of many things, asking the why? without getting an answer. I have since decided, that no answers is okay. I have been working on doing things that keep me grounded and centered---focused on what I need to be doing and what I love to do, rather than allowing the actions, feelings, and words of others paralyze me any longer. I am free and happy! Refocused on what is good and what is right.
Reopening my blog is a big deal to me, I was not sure if I would do it, can I keep up? Will it be good? Can I do this? And I just decided that the answer was YES to all of it! I won't stress anymore over feeling that "I have to do it all" or that life is spirialling out of control or so much external stuff was being taken so personal to me, that it became paralyzing. I was so overwhelmed that I just could not do anything, and just wanted to sleep!
This was not helping me, I had things to do, places to go and commitments to fulfill. I needed to spend time to Still myself. Quiet my thoughts. Get grounded. Find perspective. Be centered to who I wanted to become.
So this blog is not going to be a bunch of promises to post daily ( if I do, then great!) It will be what I can do and stay centered and grounded without any pressure to perform or be on a stage for where I do not belong. It will be what I can accomplish. What is good. Sharing and peaceful.
I am happy to be back!
