I’m sure this must be the day with the most blog posts on the Internet! New Year’s resolutions, new beginnings, new ‘to do’ lists. It has gotten me thinking about my personal new year stretching out before me.
I’m always impressed & inspired by the ‘thing a day’ people. Can I commit to that? I’m not sure. The ‘word of the year’ is more promising; although last year I forgot what word I picked by the time February rolled around. I am considering Focus for this year. I’m going to sit with it a while.
The self improvement thing is always good – at least for a while. But I always see a shadow side to that one – that there’s something wrong with me that needs to be ‘improved’.
For the last 5 or 6 years, I’ve had a goal of “Making my shit into shit”! You see, I suffer from the ‘Icouldmakethatintosomething’ syndrome. I collect lots of things from here & there. And here they are! I’m considering starting a support group, but then we’d be right back to there’s-something-wrong-with-that land. So, I’m committed to ‘MMSIS’ continuation – with an added bonus of throwing some shit away! I don’t know if I’ll be able to throw out one thing a day, but that would be a great goal. And I certainly have enough items to do that handily! I’m starting with that pair of shoes that are cute, but kinda worn out & now the back of the right heel has the lining bunched up so it wears a sore into my Achilles’ tendon whenever I wear them. Buh Bye!!
Wish me luck! And I’ll wish it for you, too!
