New Year Exception?

I have never been one for New Year Resolutions, but this year, I might make an exception, because there are a few things at the forefront of my mind that I simply cannot ignore:

1). I need to find a way to make sure the way I choose to make a living still makes me feel alive. That I go into it each day with an attitude that makes me happy to be there, to learn something new, & teach someone else a thing or two.

2). I need to find an outlet in terms of writing. Whether it be a private journal, a dabble in blogging, &/or a short story or two. I have so much that just floats around in my brain; it can only be healthier to get it out &, Lord knows, I like to write “novels” whenever I write — just ask anyone who has known me for any length of time! ๐Ÿ˜‰

3). I need to continue to make progress in getting my financial & home life in order. Knowing that my handsome man is also counting on me to NOT go backwards in this regard is part of motivation because I love & respect him so much, but there’s still so much to be done.

4). I almost wasn’t going to list it, (because, to me, it is a “given”), but I need to find steady & positive ways to continue to grow my relationship with my sons, as they are not getting any younger, (nor am I). Besides, I can’t help but think of what I thought when I had an absent parent growing up. I need my sons to know NOW that my heart is in the right place even I couldn’t always physically be there.

In MY true form, I need to throw in a “disclaimer” of sorts here by saying that I reserve the right to modify &/or add to this list as time goes on… Life isn’t all in “black & white,” afterall. More to come later… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. […] am not usually one for New Year Resolutions, but my very first post here was titled “New Year Exception?” I am thinking it is because, that year, in particular, I didn’t make my plans for the […]


  3. […] anyway. . . I convinced myself of this, then got started on WordPress in January 2013 with a post about non-resolutions. […]


  4. […] day, I’d like to be more active on a regular basis & maybe that’ll turn into one of my outlets. In the meantime, writing hereย is what does that for me. You can’t even imagine the extra […]

    LOL. Khai, Jenn, perhaps I shall add it to one of the many revisions to this list that I am sure are to come, (knowing me). I may re-word it just a touch, though… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thank you for the support.

    5) You need to find a way to realize how fucking fabulous you are.
