The Year of Me

 via coolpicbro

Do you make New Year's resolutions? Instead of resolutions, I try to come up with themes. I am a huge theme person. Last year I tried to make it the year of "Treat Yo Self!" Well....that didn't turn out so as planned. I got bogged down with reality, dealt with a little heart issue and OMP. Tthe year of treating myself went into the year of making sure the OMP was alive and kicking. I guess in a way, I did treat myself. I get more of OMP! Yahoo! Win for me! 

I tried to think of theme this year and here are a few I came up with:

The year of folding laundry (HA, I crack myself up)
The year of not yelling at people while driving (oh, that's a good one)
The year I don't let the dogs walk all over me (HA HA HA!)

Finally, I came up with the best them ever....the year of me. This theme fits like a glove! I will take time to love myself, enrich myself and surround myself with positive, loving supportive people. In turn, I will try to be the best to I can be to others. 

I'm not talking about being self centered at all. That is not okay! The year of me includes every aspect of my life. It allows me to be a whole person and thus give to others to let them be whole. To have a year of me means to be conscience about those around. Do they lift you up? Are you lifting them up? Think of me as the whole picture, the whole world. 

I think the year of me is also thinking outside my comfort zone, not staying in a rut. Get out there, try new things, meet new people. Giving people a chance that I might never have before. I might make a new best friend! 

What is your theme this year? Are you going to have a year of me?

I'm finally reading The Alchemist and this year is going to be all about following my Personal Legend and paying attention to omens and listening to what my heart is saying.

I like your concept. Every year my one resolution is to not make any resolutions. I'm very good at that.

I'm down with the Year of Pam. It's way better than whatever the Chinese Zodiac has for use this time around, I'm pretty sure.
