I feel like I should be making some new year resolutions right now. I've felt like that for a few days now, but I can't think of any. I would love to have everything in my house to have a place, maybe even labeled?! But that will happen when the stars align and cause a shift in the universe. I would also love to be more disciplined, but that would be a lot of work. I lost some weight at UPS, but I still have a little to go and it would be nice if I had a little bit of tone on something below my waist. When I was younger, it didn't really matter what I ate as long as I went running, but I don't think I'll get any of that weight loss or toning without watching the high amounts of sugar I eat every day.
I always feel like a failure when I make goals that I don't reach. The last couple of years I haven't made any resolutions because I didn't want to fail. But I read something on facebook that changed my mind. Someone quoted Beth Anderson Lippert. Ya, I don't know who she is either, but I like her quote, "I hope that in this year to come you make mistakes, because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're doing something. So, that's my wish for you, and all of us and myself. make new mistakes. Make glorious mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life. Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it. Make your mistakes, next year and forever."
I'm going to print this out and put it up somewhere I will see it so I don't forget that making mistakes is ok, because I really don't want to go through a whole year again frozen in fear and making excuses for getting things done....like my book!
