A new start and not of a cross stitch nature. My New Year's Resolution was vetted out in my exhausted little brain in early December. It is simple and not a big deal, but oh so far reaching. Simply put, I proclaimed that in 2012, I would be nicer to myself. What? Isn't that selfish you might ask? In my case it is the exact opposite. It finally sunk in.....if what you are doing isn't working, it is time to change it up. So I made this promise to myself to not over-extend myself. To not feel obligated that I have to say YES to everything! To not feel that if I don't jump and do it, it won't get done.
It is not always Board/Committee type work, it is sometimes pleasurable things. This past fall I was away 7 out of 8 weekends. I mean away overnight or longer type away. All things I wanted to do. Can you do the math and add up the things around the house not getting done? I do this time after time and put pressure on myself. It made my brain hurt and made me push myself harder to get it all done and made for one very tired me. Please someone let me hitch a free ride sometime!
Maybe I will now be able to cross more than some WIP's off my to-do list.
Words of advice that I have given before but never listened to myself .......If you continue to do the same thing and expect a different result, that is insanity.......change something in your approach if you want a different outcome..... I am doing it!
May the bluebird of happiness fly into your life in 2012!
