Happy 2012 to you! I’m starting off my new year with one major new intention
Keep My Word
Keep my word to myself first and foremost, as well as to others.
How many times have I said I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired of feeling like I’m in the same old place? Which is why I go silent on this blog so frequently – because I’m boring myself with the same old crap that comes out of my mouth, so you sure as hell must be too!
Something has to change!
That change for me has come in the form of being an action taker, not just a talker.
Not that I necessarily have to complete everything that I start, as, let’s face it, some things turn out to be a fricking bad idea and some things offer you opportunities further down the line that put a fork in the road and I want to be open to change and going with what FEELS right.
Get my head outta the way!!!
So last Summer is when I started stepping up and keeping my gob shut more and putting first one foot forward, then another, and another.
I caught up with my friend Bird today and she said to me, “Sarah, have you celebrated everything you achieved in 2011?” And I looked at her a bit blankly. Huh?
Immediately my mind started cataloguing all the things I’ve ever said over the years that I would do and never done, drowning out the good bits. But yes, there have actually been many, in quite a short space of time!
She reminded me that I took charge of my life, sold all my stuff, went travelling – on my own, changed my diet to that of a balanced vegetarian and as a result, EFFORTLESSLY, reduced my weight from the horrifying 12 stone I reached at my pinnacle in September (not a great accomplishment), to what I am today.
