Now what???

2009. WOW, the beginning of a new year. The unequivocal fresh start - and believe me - there are many areas in my life which could benefit from a fresh start. So many things need changing and improving that I am overwhelmed and do not even know where to begin. Seriously. And if I let it happen, if I let overwhelmed win and overwhelm, it leads me to inactivity - actually dormancy would be even more accurate. I get so consumed by seeing all that needs to be done that I simply do nothing and ignore everything. There is just too much. Pretty soon I don't write, I don't call, I just don't communicate (I know I know there are those of you who are skeptical about this - but it's true - ask the HotY).

So first and foremost my resolution for 2009 is to not become overwhelmed. To learn to take things one piece at a time instead of trying to take on the entire pie of life.

Secondly, I'm going to try to stop repeating myself so often. I reread some of my older blog entries and what I have found is I say the same things over and over and over again. Talk about BORING. So if you find me repeating myself please feel free to speak up because right now I am so sick of myself I could puke. I really don't know how you people put up with me.

Thirdly, follow-through. I need to work on my follow-through. If I say I'm going to do something I need to do it. PERIOD. And really this follow-through thing combined with the overwhelmed thing contribute greatly to the good, the bad, and the ugly of my life so if I can get these two areas under control I think the rest will all fall into place. I'm hoping...

So there you go - I'm not sure where all this will lead. Hopefully to good things and good places. To being that extraordinary person I would like to be instead of who I am today. It may even lead to discontinuing this blog. I'm not quite sure - one piece of pie at a time...

TTFN... Feel free to share your own resolutions. I'm listening.

Happy New Year Angie. I, too, can get overwhelmed very easily...and then procrastinate on everything that needs to get done. Not a good cycle. So, my "Ali word" for 2009 will be "DO" I have to follow through with my intentions, not just "talk" --- so, when's that lunch date??? ;)

Baby steps. One thing at a time.
