A New Year …

… Means a chance to start over, yeah?

I know so many people have been looking forward to end of 2016. I guess it was pretty rough for us too. But then again, 2015 was a shit one no walk in the park either *sigh.

I have seen some great sayings online today. Here’s a mash-up I made for myself 🙂
2017Brad Paisley is credited for a similar quote. I mashed his and another couple for this. It just makes sense to me. We make our own story … MAKE IT AMAZING!

Do you choose a Word of the Year for yourself? #onelittleword
I have done it the last 2 years.
2015 was “BALANCE”2016 was “POSITIVE”
2017’s word was easy to choose. It was the first word that sprung to mind when I first pondered and it stuck! It is :
moderationAs in … everything in MODERATION.
I think I have a somewhat obsessive or addictive personality. I’ve always been a bit ‘all or nothing’. In some ways it’s a blessing, but in others a curse.
My weight and health (MOST importantly my HEALTH!)  is one aspect of my life where I need to exercise moderation. “Moderation” covers that like a vow to eat better, exercise more, etc. without making a ‘resolution’.
I need to stop over-thinking everything!
I need to do a few of the un-fun things like chores (and exercise) every day instead of a huge day or two and then nothing for a few days and wonder why the place is a mess! Same with the fun stuff … a little each day instead of 3 days sewing, and then have to catch up on everything else.
I also have to start doing a little study EVERY day.
Even blogging seems to feel a little all or nothing – I will often post 4 times in 6 days and then not again for a month … Hopefully I’ll have a little more to say in 2017! 🙂
Anyhow … I will be back soon for another chat.
Happy New Year!
I wish only fantastic, amazing, joyful things for you in 2017 ❤
