THIS year will be different. This year, I have decided to make a list of NON-Resolutions. Instead, I have made a list of the things that bug me. If they get better, yay. If not, there's always next year. So, here goes.
THINGS THAT BUGGED ME IN 2012
While most people were busy making their New Year's Resolutions, I was planning for a trip to Disney World and also grieving the death of my grandmother. Now that our vacation is over and my grandmother has been laid to rest, I have had some time to lament over the past year.
1. My Patience: I have found that my patience with everyone around me has gotten shorter and shorter in the past year. I'm on edge frequently. I want everything done yesterday, and I want it perfect. Because that's realistic, right?
2. Clutter: I'm a hoarder by nature and nurture. I have towels Desi and I got for wedding presents 23 years ago. I hoard books, magazines, papers, beauty products, kitchen gadgets, nail polish, shoes, toys, and office supplies. To make matters worse, I also hoard baskets and organizational bins to load up with the items I hoard.
3. My "Appearance:" I'm not one to be all self-loathing, but I worked really hard last year to lose almost 50 pounds. Those little f*ckers have slowly crept back on and I'm not happy about it. I kind of want to get back on track with my health and weight and stuff.
4. O.C.D. and Perfectionism: I'm a perfectionist. I think things should be done a certain way and it irks me when it isn't. I should probably try to let go of some of some of those things this year. I suppose maybe it's alright for someone to do things differently from how I would have it done. Maybe.
Wow. So that's what I came up with. My plan is to work on these things a little every day or at least when I'm not busy forgetting about them. You'll help keep me on track, right?
