Happy New Year

The last year has been very difficult for me. I've decided that I'm going to let everything go. I've no plans to do any of the following:
  • Get Organizated/clean more
  • Be a better person or wife
  • Work harder

The only plan I have is at the end of the day, no matter how much I feel I've failed at any of my own expectations of myself, there must be at least one thing I can think of that I can be proud of, and if not I can spend 5 minutes doing something to be proud of.

I too had put way TOO much pressure to be that much more until recently. I decided to do pretty much what you declared saying I will find something to be proud of at the end of the day or at least conduct myself in such a way that at the end of the day, when I look into the mirror I can be proud of ME.I still have moments however I am proud to say I feel a lot of relief.I have shifted my way of thinking and being and for the VERY first time in my life, I feel at peace. It came out of nowhere.I had come to the realization Tuesday on the bus heading home and I cried tears of joy. I had a dream a very long time ago about feeling at peace and then I felt it consciously! I was never able to *let go* and trust the universe that it will re arrange itself if I changed my thought patterns...Finally I truly believe for the first time I am actually there, trusting, believing, knowing THAT EVERYTHING IS FOR ME.....8)

Disconnect if you must for awhile and do please come back. I would love to keep in touch with another who knows my *story*

may 2009 be all you wish it to and MUCH more!

This really spoke to me too. It is a shame that it is so hard for women to be proud of ourselves. I second your resolution!!

I didn't make any resolutions either. I am not particularly fond of them as I usually do not keep them and that's too depressing! I trust in God, do what I believe is the right thing to do and then trust in Him some more! When I trust that God is control and that I'm on the path he has set out for me, life is much sweeter!

Good for you. I am also resolutionless! I never stick with them anyway, so why set myself up to fail. I have some small goals right now and it's much less pressure.

Hope you're doing well and that 2009 brings you very good things!
