That just zipped by too fast, didn't it?
Our Christmas day was nice and relaxing, but everything up to and then after has seemed to be at break neck speed for me. I have so much that I feel was left undone. Especially all the fabric I bought to make little gifts and ornaments and stockings. It's all folded up and some of it is still in the bags I brought them home in. Maybe I'll get it out in September next year, instead of waiting until December to even think about that sort of thing.
My birthday is Monday, and I've been thinking about my age a lot. I know it's just a number, but I feel a LOT younger than 39. Is it possible that this is my last year in my 30's? How did that happen? I can't say I'm depressed about it, but I am feeling a little weird.
So not only am I thinking about some resolutions for the new year, I'm thinking about how I want 39 to look. There's a lot of reflection going on here, people!
I've got the usual suspects, of course... drink more water, lose more weight, get organized, but can I just say, BLECH!
I love what Ali Edwards does every year. She chooses 'one little word' and that is what she tries to cultivate for the year. Isn't that neat? My problem is choosing just one word. I think in phrases, like, Be A Grown Up, or Take a Breath, or Don't Be So Negative or Give Yourself a Break.
I think what I really need is a big do-over.
I need to start fresh with a totally clean and organized house. No piles, no excess. Why do I hang on to so much crap?
I need to go back to my wonderful eating habits and forget these 10 pounds I've packed on since Thanksgiving. (I really, really thought I had a handle on all of that, but evidently my eating monster has not been fully quieted.)
I NEED to start every day having had a full nights sleep. There's nothing worse than starting a new day feeling like the old day is still with me.
Do-over is hyphenated, so I don't think that counts. How about Fresh? Yeah, I think I like that.
Fresh can encompass my house keeping, my sleeping habits, the ability to give myself a break every now and then. Start clean, look forward, stay positive.
Off to bed for me, so I can start off tomorrow... Fresh!
