New Year…Do You

Posted by on January 18, 2017


I know, I know…that’s not the phrase that gets said at the beginning of every year, but I don’t necessarily subscribe to that notion. To me, the start of the new year is a chance to figure out what you want to accomplish for this new year. Improving who you already are, not become someone entirely new. Want to get that promotion? Figure out what steps you need to take! Want to travel more? Start researching deals! Want to live a healthier lifestyle? Start with your first meal of the day! Looking to be more organized? You know OCbyD has your back! 🙂

What are you wanting to accomplish this year?

    As posted on facebook, it would be to get all 2016 resolutions done (that I thought of in 2015…), but I am instead embarking on an entire life improvement. That may sound ambitious, but it’s not as hard as one might think. For starters I simply won’t allow anyone close to me and in a constant bad mood to affect mine. I will listen to you tube and lectures that make me feel happy. I’m going to rewrite stories of my life in my head as if I were an actor in a screenplay, and add all those great details like the one liners that were never said because you thought of them too late! I’m going to blow stuff off and nap – as usual – and I am NOT going to feel guilty about it. I’ve had enough of that! Also, I’ve started playing with new toys. A toy, to me, is anything I like. Well, I like to write, so I have an unpublished bolt to play with. I want organization and less stuff in my life so I went on a mission last year to learn all I needed to know. I’m disabled, so I’ll take my time and get help! But I will, very slowly and without kicking myself for that, Konmarie my life. I’m also going to get rid of all the beautiful things I have that make me sad. I read that in one short blog article and it was as true ah-ha moment. I’m going to put myself 1st this year, and it’s going to hurt others a little, but not enough to be put off any linger! My kids are older. We’ve settled in to a new town, and I’ve met people who can really help me, and want to. So I’m going to let them even if schedules aren’t perfect, days are mixed up and not everybody gets everything they are doing with my help completed. I’m going to think the thoughts that feel good. I’m going to allow things to move me. And I’ll cry a lot whenever I feel like it, but I’ll laugh a lot too. Most of all, whatever I do, I’m going to do it slowly, because there is plenty of time. I am going to have to learn to relax, but I’ve already begun. Thinking thoughts and doing small things guilt free… saying no, I’m not going to do _____, and not carrying the feeling the other person has about that personally – these are actually much easier than I thought! I’m a disabled vet and I have been sick and injured a really long time. Now? I’m actually getting more well! It takes more strength to let go than to keep holding on – to things, people & thoughts – but once you do the river runs, and energy comes back to you. I’m going to keep in mind that I’ve gone through hell, survived although it wasn’t pretty, and that I know I will again. Next time I do it won’t be pretty again, I’ll be a mess, and I forgive myself now so later it doesn’t take so much work. Now… Onto that budgeting and money thing… So I can afford a personal virtual assistant and an organizer! I deserve it. So? I’m going to make that happen too.

    And, maybe I will teach my spell check to stop changing words? Maybe.
