Finding My Bliss

So, it’s that time again – Yes, you guessed it –  ‘New Year’s Resolutions.’  Those three words usually make me cringe every year – probably because every year I usually drum out the old favourite – “To Lose Weight” – and those three words make me cringe even more!

So, this year I have thrown the old favourite out the window and put a bit more thought into it – well 5 minutes at least, which is an improvement already on previous years!

I have decided that my New Year’s Resolution for 2012 is to ‘Find My Bliss!’ And not just find it – but find it every day.

Now if you think that sounds ultra corny – which it probably does – and have already selected Start, Shut Down on your computer, I won’t hold it against you … but if you haven’t – then this is my plan of attack:

1)  No matter how small or insignificant it may seem – I will find my segment of ‘bliss’ every day.

For example :  Today I was still tired from New Years Eve,  kids were grumpy from late nights and husband was getting bored and ready to be back at work …. but I can distinctly remember 2 segments of bliss : An uninterrupted shower and a drive to the beach at dusk – fantastic!  Now if  you are thinking – what’s so great about that, I can do that whenever I please – well I have three words for you : “You Lucky Bastard!”  However, jokes aside, obviously ‘bliss’ is a highly personalised experience and everybody’s will be different, but I reckon if I can find my ‘bliss’ everyday then I am on to a good thing.

2)  I will not let others ‘Lack of Bliss’ interfere with mine.

Now, that sounds like a hard one!  But I am determined to try – bring on the Positive Thinking I say!

3)  Let go off the guilt.

If my children have a melt down I am not going to blame myself.  If I want a chocolate biscuit I will have one and I will savour and cherish the taste.  If  I have had no sleep because the kids have been sick (or I have spent all night blogging or on facebook) then I will treat myself with a cruisy day and NOT FEEL GUILTY!

Oh … I like the sound of number 3!

Anyway, enough of my rambling.  I think you get the gist of my New Year’s Resolution for 2012.

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all.  Would love to hear your comments or New Year’s Resolutions – if you make them.

Keep smiling,

Hi, I'm Kathryn. I love to write. These days when I'm not tapping away on my keyboard or indulging in social media, you can find me trying to perfect my gluten-free baking, dancing around the lounge with my children or engrossed in a book.
