Happy New Year everyone!!! Can you believe it’s 2012? We rang in the New Year at home this year. No church. No parties. No get together with friends. Just us, at home with Dick Clark. I know, you are so freaking jealous! I was actually asleep before midnight. That hasn’t happened in years and my husband won’t let me live it down. Just because I fell asleep right before midnight. Humph! What can I say, I was exhausted! 2011 rolled on out and when I woke up it was 2012. Does anyone else think 2011 flew by? I remember ringing in 2011 with lots of goals and feeling like I had nothing but time. Then I looked up and the year was gone and some of my goals were still there. Un-fufilled. I’m determined to not let that be the case this year.
Ever since the New Year kicked in, my mind has been racing. I have wondered what my first post of the New Year should be. (You don’t even wanna know what how many posts I’ve written and deleted) I have been thinking so much about the goals I’ve set for myself. I’ve been thinking more about the direction I want this blog to take. I’ve just been thinking. Maybe too much.
You know how people start out on January 1st hitting the gym with all kinds of enthusiasm? They’re determined that this year they’re going to work out every day. This year is going to be different. This year will be the year of the six pack abs. Then Valentine’s day rolls around and it’s easier to find reasons not to make it to the gym. Who needs a six pack when you can wear Spanx, right?
Well, I don’t want this year to be like that. I don’t want to start out with grand expectations only to let myself down in six weeks. Instead of going full steam ahead, maybe I’ll take a different approach and pace myself. That’s a thought, huh? Maybe I’ll set goals that are realistic and that I can build on. Novel idea, right? I already have accountability partners since I’ve shared with you all what I want to do. I just don’t want this year to be the year I let myself down. I want to stay true to myself and make myself proud. I know I can do it.
Did you make any New Year’s resolutions or promises? How do you plan on keeping them?
