Take a Chill Pill

This post has nothing to do with the soaring heat we have been having.

Yesterday I woke up angry. I was so pissed off with EVERYTHING. So, so, angry. I was even angry at God.

Unfortunately it was not the angry that gave me 'fire in my belly' and got me working.

It was the angry that made me want to slap everyone. To scream and rant. To be VERY sarcastic and cruel.

I sort of quarantined myself to my bedroom for the sake of everyone else.

I gave up hours of peace yesterday but you know what - I had a much better day today, not in spite of it, but because of it.

And for all those men who were thinking it - was not that time of the month. It's not always about the hormones you know.

New Year and resolutions. They go hand in hand. Think of all that hopeful well wishing going on globally. People pondering on what it is that's going to make them a better person - making resolutions that this year will be the one when things will change.

Statistically, by and large, many of those hopes do not come to fruition. Why do we do this to ourselves over and over again when Jan 1 ticks over?

I like to think that this pattern continues because we have an aulteristic vision that if we change ourselves we can be more for the ones around us.

This year rather than naming lots of resolutions I am going to think about being 'resolute'.

Resolute - adj. Firm in purpose or belief, steadfast, firm or determined; unwavering, steadfast.

This year I would like to be steadfast and determined. They are strengths I would like to develop. If I concentrate on them then maybe those 'wishful thinkings' may play out through the year

Back Again - with a little bit of this and a little bit of that

Ok. This blog has sat stagnate for so long. Unfortunately it has sat there in the back of my mind nagging me to do something about it.

I kept coming up with perfect times for me to kick of the blog again, but stuff always got in the way. (Part of the stuff being feeling stupid for letting it go so long - gotta love that self-recrimination.)

But this one day of the year allows for the clocks to be reset. Now it's 'who cares'. It's a new year. We get to kick things off again.

No huge promises. Just little bits of this. Oh and maybe some little bits of that.

Happy New Year everyone!

Is there something in your lives that you will kick off again on this day of new promises?
