Crawling out from Under Myself

Friday, January 04, 2013

2012 was quite the year for me. My mother's health took a number of scary turns, my very pregnant sister moved in with me, I moved apartments, took on A TON of responsibilities at work and at was all around crazy. For awhile there I honestly just shut down. I was so focused on doing for others that I stopped doing for me. Not on purpose, not all at once, but I definitely stopped.

And it shows. I gained some weight and a crappy attitude. My summer was pretty dark, I don't even remember the last time I consistently sparked. I didn't have the time, but I also didn't have the right perspective or I would have found it. Because when do any of us ever have the time?

I don't have any resolutions this year (see no time, lol). The last thing I need is another to do list. This year I just have to get out of my own way, crawl out of my crap and commit to finidng time for ME every day. I know it won't be easy, but in the midst of all that crazy last year I learned how much I can take, so why not use that fortitude to achieve a personal goal I've wanted for as long as I can remember?

We'll see what happens, but I am digging my feet in for a heck of a fight in 2013!

    Everything will fall into place for you and by getting over the bumps in the road in 2012, you will KNOW that you can (and will) get through any challenge you are faced with in the future.
