A friend thinks I'm crazy because I have an unrelenting sense of slightly exaggerated hysteria concerning the new year.
I know it is my year.
I know it because I want it to be.
Late last year I did a little soul searching and realised that I didn't like the way I was living my life. It wasn't anything dire, it's just that I was a bit too passive. I was letting things roll and just coasting. I have goals and I have desires but I step back because maybe I feel I shouldn't want so much.
Well that ship has sailed.
I have decided that I can have as many goals as possible and in His infinite mercy, if God answers my prayers and gives me strength, wisdom, grace and understanding I will achieve them.
For someone who doesn't 'do' resolutions I now have one big resolution in my head..to change the way I think. That includes not being so passive, not being such a people pleaser and (this phrase I learnt from GNG) to stop taking Panadol for other people's headache.
So on December 31 2010 I will come back to this post and see how many goals on my power list I have achieved.
Happy New Year everyone.
POWER LIST
1. Driving License
2. Stable and healthy weight loss
3. Bigger projects at work
4. To find a single, emotionally available man, who shares the same cultural values, beliefs and value systems as I do.

    Yes o! I'm one of those people who just keeps adding goal upon goal to my list and the amazing thing is that I accomplish them most of the time without even realizing it!

    You'll do just fine!


  18. LucidLilith Says:

    It's good to have a list. I have a list daily. It is quite OCD of me though.

    "I have decided that I can have as many goals as possible and in His infinite mercy, if God answers my prayers and gives me strength, wisdom, grace and understanding I will achieve them."

    God will surely answer your prayers by giving you what is best for you.

    May you achieve all that you dream of, exceed more than is in your powerlist, and experience contentment and fulfilment this 2010.

    You're welcome (response to your comment on my blog)

    @Suru, Amen! Hi 5 for Jesus! LOL!

    @Enkay, I like the way you think. Have a great 2010.

    @Lucidlilith, I love lists in my everyday life. At home and at work. You aren't a Virgo by any chance are you?

    @ Rita, thank you so much.

    May you all have a blessed and rewarding 2010!!!


  21. All the best to you with your power list. The part of your entry that jumped out at me is I know it is my year. I know it because I want it to be.

    I have declared the last couple of years as my year, but then sat around waiting for the year to happen to me, instead of grabbing the year and making things happen. And now January is gone! I'm trying not to panic :)
