January 1 the day to begin a new year--2016--and a day to begin again in earnest, to tackle all the goals of the New Years Days of the past. It is not just a joke for serious people, those who really consider improving their lives. What better day to make the decision to move forward? No one plans to fail in a week, a month or less. We don't make resolutions to break. We all want to succeed.
The mistake I make every year is to create a monster schedule that can only be kept by a superwoman. Please step forward if you resemble that woman. No? Think you might be, might try this year? Good luck, my friend. Truly.
What to do: take baby steps. See the movie with Bill Murray, "What About Bob?" I never forget the baby steps.
Here is my approach this year. I broadened the scope of my blog last year by adding the words 'and More" meaning I do more than beads and wish to blog about those things, too.
Today I wish to put more emphasis on the word 'More". I wish to do more. More blog posts. More beading. More sewing. More crafting. More gardening. More tips. More sharing. Most of all, more consistent. I want to be there, do that!
I don't want to do it all this week--it would be difficult since my back went out Monday and I can barely walk. I don't expect to do much more even in January because I have surgery coming up on the 12th, but I am not quiting because of a few setbacks.
Now I really need more sleep. This is late because I couldn't sit up straight to write this blog. For 2016 it is good to go.
Whew, just under the wire for January 1.
PS: Would love to receive 'more' comments. Love you more.
