New Year, New Promises

Okay, be honest. How many of you are resolving to go to the gym more often in 2019? Mine is the same every year and by January 3, I have forgotten all about it. Well, I have forgotten about the gym, not the resolution. I usually go through a period of being angry with myself for not following through. So, I have decided to come up with a different resolution this year.

This year, my resolution, to be kind to myself and nurture my needs. I spend a lot of time taking care of others and empowering others. I love it and wouldn’t change it for the world. But often, I leave little or no time to really focus on me. That changes this year. I need to make sure my crown is on straight to be able to continue to straighten the crowns of others.

I don’t choose this resolution because I think it will be easy. I think this may be one of the hardest things I have ever done. I hate taking care of myself. It feels selfish, putting my needs before others. I don’t like doing that. But this year, it’s time I do. That doesn’t mean I will stop caring for others. Just that I will take a little extra time so I can adjust my crown and be stronger to help you adjust yours better.

Yep, it still means going to the gym when I can. But if I miss a day or two…well,I haven’t failed. But it also means keeping up with doctor appointments, going out with friends, taking my vacation time, and just unapologetically being me. I am Loki g forward to the challenge. I have come so far in my journey, but this, well, I think taking care of others has always been a good distraction. So now it’s time to focus on me and enjoy the ride.

What’s Your New Years Resolution. Please share.

Please forgive horrible grammar and spelling. I am typing this entry from my phone.
