Crawling out from Under Myself
Friday, January 04, 2013
2012 was quite the year for me. My mother's health took a number of scary turns, my very pregnant sister moved in with me, I moved apartments, took on A TON of responsibilities at work and at home...it was all around crazy. For awhile there I honestly just shut down. I was so focused on doing for others that I stopped doing for me. Not on purpose, not all at once, but I definitely stopped.
And it shows. I gained some weight and a crappy attitude. My summer was pretty dark, I don't even remember the last time I consistently sparked. I didn't have the time, but I also didn't have the right perspective or I would have found it. Because when do any of us ever have the time?
I don't have any resolutions this year (see no time, lol). The last thing I need is another to do list. This year I just have to get out of my own way, crawl out of my crap and commit to finidng time for ME every day. I know it won't be easy, but in the midst of all that crazy last year I learned how much I can take, so why not use that fortitude to achieve a personal goal I've wanted for as long as I can remember?
We'll see what happens, but I am digging my feet in for a heck of a fight in 2013!
