Another chance to do the things we love..to see the people we love..to start over..fresh and new..just like the year itself.
Another Valentine's Day..and 4th of July..and birthday..and Thanks-Mas and Christmas.
No "New Year's Resolutions" for me. Nuh uh. Not gunna do it.
I really don't need the negative feelings if I don't manage to do all of them. And if I did..what then?
Nope. I want something to strive for..not necessarily obtain.
Keeps me going. That "carrot" .
But I do have a "word" for the year....
I have A.D.D. ....really. I have too many half- read books..too may unfinished crafts..too many good intentions. All at the.same.time. to really enjoy any of them to the fullest.
Yep, I'm like that dog in the cartoon...who is listening and talking then..SQUIRREL !....
So FOCUS it is.
With that word come so many others..'simplify' comes to mind.
And of course the Ford Focus..that was son Jeff's first new car..he loved that Ford Focus. Ahh...
I really really REALLY want to do that. Focus. Not get a new car. I have one. Well, it was new a couple of years ago..so it's still new...ish.
I've already made some baby steps to start focusing....like my clothes.
Realized I like myself in white tops. White. Not polka dots or flowers. Plain. White. Simple.
And T-shirt material is great. But at least 3/4 sleeves. So I found some at Wally World..and bought 4.
I can dress them up with various necklaces or scarves..but I really like white.
And jeans. And I can wear jeans to work. So, why buy red pants? Or blue. Or tan. I like jeans.
Getting dressed is now soooooo easy. Pick a shirt..any shirt..ans it's bound to look good with my jeans..any jeans.
Simple. Focused. Easy-peasy.
I like that.
Now, putting that concept into other areas of my life.
Crafts. I am the Queen of unused craft-crap. I can't seem to rid myself..that old "hey! I like this! And I MAY used it...one day" mentality.
There's stuff in there I haven't used..barley seen..in over a year..or 2?!
And that makes me feel guilty..then I stew and do nothing..and feel even more guilt.
So, I am making strides in clearing my room, my mind, my closets of unused junk so I can really FOCUS on what I love.
Guess that means getting rid of all those other men..and FOCUS on Mr. B huh?
PS..just kidding about the other men..who could ask for better than
FOCUS Colleen, FOCUS !!
