New Year's Resolutions

I have this nasty little habit. I focus on all the things I haven't accomplished or succeeded at. If I have a list of 10 things I want to get done, and I do 8 of them, I feel disappointed and obsess about how I could fail to accomplish those last 2 items. Not surprisingly, I have gotten to the point where I feel afraid to name an intention, set a goal, or make a to-do list, because I am afraid I will "fail."

Isn't it ironic that even now, telling you about my bad habit of focusing on the negative, I am focusing on the negative. LOL!

So, here's to not having any New Year's Resolutions. Here's to finding ways to enjoy, celebrate, and feel good all the time. Here's to being present with my decisions in every moment, without shame or guilt. Happy 2010!

Happy 2010 to you Marjorie!!

I've become quite the Excel spreadsheet creator, and while it helps me keep organized (lists for everything!), sometimes I feel like my to-do lists far exceed my (mental) got-done list. So, now I make one of those too (for a few days usually and then I delete it until I desire to do it again). I have fun seeing what I've accomplished each day in writing. And I'm not too proud to add "made bed" to the list to get me going. :-)

Whatever thoughts or actions make you feel good about the amazing and thoughtful person you are--those are the ones to honor!

A got-done list, Kim. I love it!

But I'll never make my bed. LOL!

You are an amazing person and I am so thrilled that we met on the Naked Food Cafe. I appreciate your encouragement and thoughtful suggestions.

Marjorie
