I've been doing a lot of bellybutton gazing lately, much contemplation. While that's not necessarily a bad thing, I have not been kind lately- either to myself or to the people who I care about.
The beginning of a new year is often a time to restart and refresh. You get a do-over, so that's what I'm giving myself. I originally was going to title this post "Mea Culpa" and write a long rant about how I'm sorry for all of the hurt and pain that I have caused recently to my husband and to a dear friend of mine, but that would just be me throwing myself around and creating drama again- and I don't need to do that anymore.
So, it's time to wipe the slate clean. I have been a bad human. (I can't help but hear some sort of cosmic deity pointing a finger down at me saying "Bad human, bad! No treats for you!" and I deserve that.) I need to get better and move forwards to be the best me I can be. I will listen to people who care about me. I will take care of my physical self as well as my mental and emotional self. I am better than what I have been.
I wish you, my dear readers, only the best in the world.
