Buh-bye 2015, don’t let the door hit you on the way out!

Happy New Year my lovelies! It’s almost time to start 2016. I have to say, I have a feeling this year is going to become a fine vintage. Something awesome is going to happen. I feel it in my bones. I am feeling hopeful and relaxed in a way which I haven’t felt in along time.

Unlike any year before, this year I actually have a resolution. I resolve to make a conscious effort to just “let go.” Imagine this… what if, in your your hands you held a lot of stuff. What if that stuff was your life? Imagine that it comprises of all the thoughts and feelings you have. Good stuff, bad stuff, memories, a laundry list of “to do’s” and obligations. Imagine that the stuff in your hands (both good and bad) weights a lot. It is all you could possibly carry. Now, what if something new comes in your life, something awesome, and you want to pick it up but you can’t because your what you are holding on it is already at its peak capacity? If you haven’t figured it out, what I’m trying to say is that if we keep holding on to negative thoughts, memories of what happened when someone hurt us, fears and worries, it makes it almost impossible to pick up new ones. It is too hard to hold on to good when you can’t let go of bad.

One thing I resolve to do is to stop writing about any of my exes. That goes for ex boyfriend(s) and ex husband(s). They have taken up enough space. I have held on to such heavy sadness for so long that my hands bled. No, it stops here.

While this started out as kind of a divorce blog,  I don’t want it to be that anymore. My divorce is well and truly over. The bridges to my past are burned beyond recognition. I’m not saying I will no longer think of it. I’m not even saying I will no longer feel sad about. What I am saying is I am turning the page, and one of the ways I plan to do that is by not giving people who didn’t recognize my worth any more real estate on my website. It’s time for a clear out dollies! I’m leaving all the sh*t on the curbside with the other garbage. No more dirty feet allowed on my beautiful soul :D.

So yeah, this year I challenge myself to clean out as much negativity as I can. I want and I need to let go. I want to make a conscious effort to nurture my tiny seed of hopefulness into something epic! I hope you will join me because I think there is going to be some really cool stuff along the way.

What about you daaaahlings? Will you be making any resolutions?

      1. We are! I am dreaming about that trip. BE is doing okay. He is off the pain meds, but still having a lot of trouble moving the muscles. He was so tight before, and they had to cut open additional muscle on him, so he has stitches inside and then the incision is glued. He is very swollen and bruised on the tush and backside of his right leg, which is normal, but looks awful. We are on day six. The bandage comes off tomorrow, ew, not looking forward to it. He, of course, cannot see any of this, but he knows it is all there and he is paranoid to “pop” anything. I hope in another week he will be much better and able to move without the walker. For him, 2016 should be awesome as he will have movement in his hip that he hasn’t had since he was a young boy! For me, 2016 means a completed beach house, so I am totally looking forward to it. Whoop, whoop!!!

  1. It’s so nice to hear you so positive and excited for the upcoming year! I think 2016 is your year and many wonderful things will come your way. You have now opened yourself to it by releasing all the crap that was weighing you down.

    I haven’t written my resolutions yet but I will be working on my vision board soon and will share when done. 🙂 I vow to continue to move forward and carry that same momentum that’s propelling you toward goodness and happiness. ❤️

    Best of luck to you. I (and your groupies) will be supporting you along the way! There’s a great group here that are your cheerleaders! Cheers!!! XO

      1. I had Pinterest for a bit a while ago but I’m not good at keeping it up so I got rid of it. But it certainly is beautiful!
        Vision boards are great. This will be my third year doing it and I really feel like it’s given me direction. I hope you do one! It’s fun! happy new year to you as well! Xoxo

    You’ve come a long way, baby.
    –It’s always the same for me–not really a resolution…
    just to keep on living, transforming, loving, & to become used up by God.

    Love from MN. xxx

  3. No resolutions as such but making a concerted effort to be more mindful to lose the past shit. Not let it invade me in the present. Not let it win. The past is such a bitch!!!!!!!

    1. Absolutely, it’s a lot easier said than done, but you can’t allow the past to destroy the future. I feel like the way to do this isn’t recognizing when we are being self destructive and telling ourselves “no, I deserve to be happy now.”
