New Beginnings- 2018

*dusts off the cobwebs*

It's been quite some time since I have been on this thing.  Need to get a hang of it again.  

*deep breath*

Here we go . . .

January 1st.  New year, new beginnings, right?  Well, normally I don't make any resolutions.  They often turn into broken promises that diminish my self-esteem by the end of February.  It has been a difficult three years.  I have had major changes in my career, health and financial stability.  Some of the negative items were out of my control, however, I did contribute to a portion of my anguish.  So here I am.  Baring my soul after three, no make that, four years of suffering.  My plan- to be a better version of me.

Step 1- Be kind.  I truly believe in karma.  The energy you put out in the universe will eventually return to you.  I know that I have not been the best human I could possibly be.  I plan to make amends with family, friends and people in general.  Most of all, I need to learn to be kind to myself.  I am my own worst nemesis.  It's time to stop punishing myself for all the wrongs in my life and begin to make different choices.  

Step 2- Make healthier life choices.  This applies to a number of aspects in my life from food to exercise to personal life decisions.  I plan to take a breath, think and then choose the best option for myself/ family.

Step 3- Begin the climb out of financial debt.  I'm not in real trouble yet but I can feel the constraints when it comes to my finances.  It's time to pay down the credit cards, pay off the student loans and increase my financial freedom.  I want to breathe again.  

I think that's all I can handle for 2018.  Here's to hoping that I don't fizzle out by the end of February.  :)


  1. That sounds like an excellent plan for most of us also. Good luck and stick to it, no matter how hard. No pain, no gain.

  2. Excellent plan! Even if it was just the first the other two would happen. I wish you pluck as luck isn't enough without that P.

  4. Speak with family and friends when searching for a good job.See if they know of any job leads that match your background.playbazaar A lot of people forget to do this, but you need to start at that point; many employers are friendlier to those recommended than to total strangers.satta king
