There will be no New Year Resolutions for me.
I’m not big on the whole concept and to be honest, I rarely think twice about a “New Year Resolution”.
At this crossroad, I said to myself, ” Then what are you going to do”
That’s when I remembered that I had promised myself that I was going to stop being so hard on myself and I was going to stop being so hard on others as well…
I had been a perfectionist…just down right anal about things. I had expected close to perfection from others as well.
But that’s not reality, in itself unattainable. Facilitating too much stress and strain on the mind, will and emotions.
I’ve been through seasons that were so very stressful. Some self inflicted, some not.
What I have realized is there will always be something or someone out in this big bad world ready, willingly and able to make me “go there” & “go off”.
I’ve learned to choose my battles more wisely and in doing so, life for the me has changed drastically. My mind is clearer… uncluttered & unbothered! My body is healthier. My heart is becoming more open and life is easier.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge that my husband has played a major role in helping me to see things differently. He helps me to say yes to myself more often. That in itself makes it easy to say no to the stress!
I’m trying to live life to the fullest. Being more acceptable of my flaws and falling deeper in love with me.
