A new year

Here we are at the end of another year and beginning of a new one. It is true that the older I get, the faster time seems to go! It feels like we were just moving into 2017 a couple weeks ago, and now we are getting ready to greet 2018.

Well, I have given up on resolutions – mostly because I don’t seem to be able to keep them! But there are some things that I would like to shoot for next year…

I would like to live a little less in fear, and maybe a little more in gratitude. I am coming to the realization (I admit that I may be slow here) that what is going to happen is going to happen, regardless of how much I do or don’t want it to. My motto for 2018 is “It is what it is, and it will be what it will be.”┬áBy that I do not mean that I am giving up on things, but rather I am admitting that there are some things that I cannot change right now. So I will do what I can to change what I can, but I will not spend my time trying to change what I cannot change.

I have so much to be grateful for, and I plan on spending at least some of my time next year appreciating what I have. I like to think that I live in gratitude now, but I know that there is always room for improvement.

I hope to learn how to live with my fatigue in 2018. There are things that I can do to make it a little better, and I am going to do them this year.

I am going to work on not caring what others think, and doing what I feel is right.

I am sure that I will think of at least a few more things that I want to do in 2018. And I will remember that these are NOT resolutions! Resolutions may work for some people, but they do not work for me. It may just be semantics, but who cares, it is my life and they are my words!
