So what came to me when I was writing my last blog entry – the idea of ‘the year of me’ – I think it’s a great idea and I’m really embracing it.
I went out and got my nails done and went shopping on New Years day. I left work early (only 30 minutes but it’s the principal of the thing) and went to a movie on the 2nd. Didn’t do anything super special today, but I can neither afford the cost nor the indulgence of goofing off EVERY day.
I haven’t worked on this plan a lot but I think the main goal is just to think about myself and what I want. There are times when I do things I really hate because I don’t want the confrontation or because I just feel like I should. I’ve tried very hard for many years to think about things from others point-of-view. This year, while I don’t want to ignore that other POV, I do think I should stop and at least weigh-in what I want. I’ll try to find some examples and let you know how it’s going.
Go ahead and try out the ‘year of me’ for yourself. Let me know how it goes if you do. Have a very happy new year!
