Start the New Year with a New You

Let go of the baggage
Stop holding onto old grudges. Stop holding onto those hurt feelings. It’s time to say goodbye to the resentment and move along with an open and forgiving heart. It’s easier said than done but the anger will just add stress to your already busy and hectic life. Free yourself from the baggage, it will only hold you back from true happiness.
life is too short, no regrets,

Surround Yourself with Support
Everyone has something to say about something. Who cares what that homeroom mother thinks about your homemade thumbprint cookies? Who cares what Aunt Ethel thinks about YOUR daughter’s shoe choice? None of these opinions matter to your life so own your decisions, stand by them and be happy with your own life and how you live it. Those who matter don’t mind and those that mind don’t matter….Dr Suess.

Love Yourself
No one is going to love you more than you love yourself. The self-deprecating attitude and comments will only make others see you that way. We’ve all gone through physical and emotional changes, these changes make us who we are. Those couple extra wrinkles are just evidence of the life you’ve lived don’t cover it up, don’t hid it, show off your battle scars and love them and everyone else will.

Smile More
A broken toy, a lost pair of sunglasses or a ruined meal . These are all things that could set someone off after an already frustrating day. Brush off the little things, the things you can’t control. Take a breathe and think of the big picture; is that mishap really going to affect your life after the next few minutes.

Out With The Old In With The New

Can you believe it is 2010 already? 2009 flew by and it definitely had it ups and downs. Some of the ups are I got to meet some awesome people at IZEAFest as well as make some great friends on-line. I partnered with Melinda so we could both write on the same blog and concentrate all of our efforts in the same place. I commented on more blog and made it a point to read 10-20 blogs on a daily basis (I hope to do more for 2010).

I didn’t have to many downs in 2009 but the biggest was losing my job in November 2009. I am looking forward to some great things in 2010 and the biggest thing I am looking forward to is a new job (I hope this happens this month). Here are a few other things I am hoping to do in 2010:

  • Try to read more books and magazines. I read a lot of blogs but not too many books or magazines like I use to.
  • Workout more. I lost 60 lbs 2 years ago but since being unemployed I have put on some weight so I am planning on taking off another 30 lbs by riding my bike and going to the gym more.
  • Being more patient (I lose my patience way to easy).
  • Try to start a Social Media Blog (I do not know that much but this is sort of my passion and I would love to give it a try).
  • Get Shae potty trained.
 I am sure I have more goals for 2010 but the ones above are enough to get me started so I better get to it because it will be 2011 before we know it.
What are you looking to accomplish for 2010?
