Do something about it in the New Year
First I find myself right back where I was last year on New Years eve.... sigh. At least this year we will have company at our house- even if we are unable to "go out".
So I wrote a post here.
About things that I want to change, or will continue to do again. They were not resolutions rather brainstorming ways to be happier. Now a list is great (ok, not to me, they give me hives. In fact I have even discussed MY kind of to do list.) Ok, so I was pretending that lists were great. ... But a to do list is only good if you do it. Unfortunately writing it down does not complete the task (unfortunately).
No, for a list to be worthy one must DO SOMETHING about what is written down.
I started yesterday. I stopped at the health food/ nutritional store and purchase a higher dose vitamin D supplement and put my name on a waiting list for this herbal/supplement blend call Mood Mender. Both are suppose to help with the anxiety and depression that come with this time of the year.
Next, Dearest and I went to the movie last night - Avatar. Say what you want about it, but, I really enjoyed it. (I am sure that it is because I have not been out in a long long time and our movie theater has been closed for months for a remodel - so this was the first movie I have seen in the theater since????? I was a year younger maybe) However, before we went to the theater we stopped at the store and I invested in a set of snowshoes!!!!!! YIPPPY SKIPPY. I am so excited.
So - from my list - I can pencil in a check mark next to two items on my list. I can not use a Sharpie until I do this sort of thing over and over - but I need to start somewhere.
What is top on your "list of happiness" for the New Year?
