It's hereditary.  I have tons of big ideas and plans, it's just the follow-through with which I have trouble.

About two months ago I decided that I didn't want to be one of those people who just never got around to things.  Good intentions don't mean anything.  There are so many things that I want to do but I have always told myself that I can't do those things because I don't have enough money, enough resources, skills, you name it.  One day it occurred to me: so?  What's really stopping me is not lack of resources.  It's fear.

I am tired of being ruled by fear.

I have lived my whole life in fear.  Fear that I was not good enough, I was not pretty enough, not smart enough, not fun enough...not enough.  I call bullshit.  I can do anything I really want to do.  It may not be easy, in fact anything worth doing is not, but if I keep at it, I can do whatever I want.  Maybe not quite in the way I dreamed, but I can still do it.

So, I am adopting a new attitude.*  Just do it!  Whatever it is I want to do, I am just going to do it.  I am going to find a way and do it.  I believe this is the way I will find fulfillment in my life, no more "what if"s or "if only"s, only "how can I"s.

Another goal, or I should say attitude adjustment, will be to be happy.  I'm tired of getting so down, letting people get to me, etc.  My new attitude is to be a beacon to all around me.  I know firsthand the importance of someone simply noticing you, so I will endeavor to say a kind word to everyone I meet.  I believe I can change the world, one kind word at a time.

"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around."  Leo Buscaglia

I may have setbacks, but I keep making progress.  Go me!  Go me!!  I can do it!

*Dad's little escapade to the hospital put a slight damper on my attitude. OK, I've been pretty down, but that is all behind now. Mostly...

Twenty Twenty-Two or Twenty Twenty, too?

I've talked to quite a few people who said that they are NOT doing resolutions this year. I mean, what's the point? This year, as it...
