How many of you are hittin' the gym today in a quest for those six pack abs? Or maybe you are cuttin' up your credit cards in an attempt to balance your budget. Perhaps you are tryin' to forgive your enemies for their misdeeds so you can have peace in your life. Whatever your New Year's resolution may be, I hope you go after it with gusto! As many of you know, for the past five years or so, I started making themes for the New Year instead of a specific resolution, because they really work for me. Call me crazy, but if you choose a subject that you need or want to work on and meditate on that theme throughout the year you are more likely to have success because it's not one huge goal, but more of a shift in the way you think. When you think a certain way, you set about doing things. There's my free therapy for ya in the New Year folks.
So, as we turn over the calendar, I decided to simplify my life and get rid of daily junk and clutter. I want to weed out people and things that don't add any value or joy to my life. I started with email. Truly I receive about 100 emails a day. For every one that comes in that I don't need, I scroll through and hit the unsubscribe button. I no longer share my email address at stores. I have already unfollowed or defriended folks on FaceBook who are argumentative, who constantly post political rants, or who are just plain bad for my mental health for whatever reason. It really is freeing and feels like spring cleaning.
Now that y'all know the premise, here's my theme for the New Year:
Goin' Lean, Stayin' a bit Mean
Unleashin' my Inner Queen
in Twenty Sixteen!
Wishing all of you a very healthy and happy New Year. And, if you set a resolution for 2016, I wish you great success in reaching your goal.
