Loose Change

I always start each year avoiding a specific resolution by simply stating, "I just want to change my mind & body for the better."  And, as you probably have guessed, each year ends with no changes, no better & sometimes just a little worse for wear & tear.  I am determined that by this year's end, I can not only list the changes I've made but hardwired them into my way of life.  After yet another recent attempt to end my misery, I can say this with conviction, "I want to live, just not with the existing version of me".  I'll draw upon the strength & wisdom of all of you here, at Women on the Verge, because you've accepted me as I shouldn't be & inspired me to change to as I could be.

What specifically do I want to change in 2012:

  • Let people in & not push them away to keep myself safe from what they may think of me.
  • Write that book as I always wanted to (during my recent stay at a hospital I wrote the outline & my confidence grew with each word that I can do it.). Not sure how to get it published but I will find a way.
  • Find my truths...scary & sad but I'm not sure what they are.
  • Create a peaceful & prosperous relationship with money.
  • Learn to love the person known as Heidi, flaws & all.

I can't be a change agent for the world at large until I change myself.  But I can dream of what I would champion.

  • Re-energize the women's movement for 2012 & beyond.

I didn't have the chance to say it earlier...Happy New Year, my WOTV friends.  Thank you for your support, wise words & inspiration.  You've given me a reason to believe I am worthy to live.

    Thank you Ana, as always, for the support, wise words & many hugs & xxx000. You've triggered another blog with your words "forgive myself for the cycles...". Do agree it's a challenge, one that is still a work in progress for me. Have a great day, lots of love your way.

    Happy New Year Heidi! So thankful for you. I have been in a quiet stage this week, and thinking of you often. I have learned, because of you, to try to allow myself to listen to my body and mind and forgive myself for the cycles... sometimes it's a challenge. (((hugs))) xxxooo
