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 ❤

2016’s One Little Word

Thought I’d squish in one more post for 2015 cos it’s that time again.
Time to choose my “one little word” for the year.
It was an easy one, I have been settled on this word for 2016 for a while now :
Positive 3Last year my “one little word” was BALANCE.BalanceI tried my best to live it. Not sure how well I succeeded.
The last few months of 2015 were shitful crappy painful messed up pretty full on and I felt off kilter quite a bit.
Actually, life was probably anything but balanced for a while there …
I am surviving on positivity right now, so it seems apt to make that my word of the year!
What is your “one little word” for 2016?
