A new year seems the perfect excuse to wipe the slate clean and re-invent yourself, and be a ‘better you’ but I am not bothering with that. The main reason is because I am simply too lazy too, and that my only goal is to be the same fabulous person I was in 2015 at 11.59 and be exactly that woman in 2016 at 12.01. Trust me, its taken me a long time to appreciate my worth both in my personal and professional life, and I am not going to trip myself up trying to attain un-realistic goals just because the earth travelled around the sun. Or is it the sun travelling around the earth? (whatever, I am not good at geography) for now it is all about living for the day, being more greatful, and appreciate the life I have.
For 2016, and beyond I am going to just be happy, and care a hell a lot less about what people think of me, and put myself first. I am not generally selfish, and that has been a problem, I am a yes girl, and really like to make people happy, and genuinely get a thrill when I have made their day. This is a problem. I have been over stretching myself for years, and it is all well and good saying yes, but not to the detriment of yourself. If you are not taken care of, how can you possibly be of use to anyone else?
This principle also applies to the blog, a lot more love and care will go into Adorngirl because it is my passion and escape, and its all mine so I am not looking for outside approval, I write what I want to read. The few readers I do have are fabulous, but the gobbledygook numbers from my server are no longer how I will judge how well the blog is doing, but how proud and happy I am with the content, that took me hours to create, and finally publish. Hi 2016, I am sure me and you are going to get along just fine.
