2012 Resolution

Since it is still January, I figure I am good to post my resolution still! 

You should know that my ability to thrive everyday is about as good at my ability to blog everyday!  BUT - I am learning.  I am learning to take ownership of my emotion and my mood and my outcomes.  The following was sent out at work... I would give credit to the writer... but perhaps he doesn't want his name smeared all over the internet... so I will just make it clear it didn't come from me... But I agree with it. :)

"This is the time of year when many people around the world make New Year's resolutions. Perhaps some of yours will deal with how you save and invest your money, pay off debt, lose weight, or even get a promotion. If you make one resolution this year, make it this: take ownership for your life, your job, your results, and your success! That means no excuses on creating the life you want to live. It means working through obstacles to get where you want to be, and it means not forgetting that YOU are responsible for making it happen."

I am responsible...and I am going to OWN IT this year. 

We started a weight loss thing at work three weeks ago.  I have lost 2.2.  I can do better and I will do better!  I am going to create the life I want to live.  I will make it happen!  I miss part of who I used to be and I want to re-capture that.  I want to be more fun and less structured.  I have been trying for too long to keep control.  It is time to enjoy the structure that exists and have some fun along the way.
