10 on 10: Self Discovery

For my first 10 on 10 for the year, I decided to focus on me.   As nurturers, we tend to put ourselves on the back burner and take care of everyone else first. I spent the last year doing just that: taking care of everyone but me. Trying to please everyone. And putting what I wanted last.

That leads to stress…..

And not being content. Or satisfied. Or as happy as I should have been.

I was doing my vision board when I noticed that everything led back to me. To the watering and feeding of my soul. To doing things that make me happy. Things that will fullfill ME.

I’m going to spread my little wings this year and do things that I’ve been only thinking of doing. I’m going to do a few things I’ve been afraid of doing.  I’ve decided on one word to describe my year and my word  is BOLD.

Because life is too short to sit around when I’m 60 or 70 wondering “what if?” So this year, I’m grabbing life with both hands and I am going to jump. I’m going to be BOLD.  I’m going to stop procrastinating, stop saying what if, stop saying I’m not ready, stop making excuses for any and everything that I dream of. By being BOLD. I may not succeed, but dammit, I’ll have fun and be happy trying.

Get Ready.

      I took the photos! My camera has a remote! just set it up and hit the button! If you look in one of the photos,you see me holding my phone. There is an app that let’s me see the photo as I am taking it to make sure it’s in focus and everything. I love this feature on my new camera!

    Love, love, love. You are absolutely right about life being too short. We so often let fear hold us back or push things off thinking we have time. At the end of the day, we just have to go for what we want. We’ll never know far we can get until we try.
