Where did the year go?
Are you asking yourself this?
I can answer it for you. I bet it goes a little something like this . . .
You wished the year away from the day it started. You wished away every single Monday morning. You slept walk through the week just to make it to the weekend. But, when the weekend came you were too tired to do much with yourself. Or you spent the entire weekend recovering from the horrible week you had.
Am I right?
But, where did the year go?
You dreamt it away by wishing you were living the life you were meant to have. You cursed your dreaded 9-5 cubicle hell and were too tired to pursue your real passions. You felt like a caged animal every single week day. You cursed the dipshit that told you what to do and how to do it. All that negative energy brought you to today: December 31st, with nothing positive gained…..another year gone.
Am I on to something yet?
OR, does it go like this???
The year went so fast because you were overbooked, over committed, and stretched too thin. You didn’t know how to tell anyone no and never took a minute to enjoy yourself. You’ve actually looked in the mirror and didn’t recognize that tired, depressed, worn out person staring back.
If You Are Lucky, It was More Like This . . .
The year went by swiftly because you were engaged in your work, family, and yourself. You were doing all the things you’ve always wanted to do and actually looked forward to each day. You took time for YOU and could graciously tell people no when it made sense (without the guilt).
Were you one of the lucky ones?
If not, what will you do differently in 2011 to live your dreams and achieve your real passions?
Screw all those resolutions. Just start doing what you need to do NOW. You are too Irresistible to live in those other scenarios.
I wish you the absolute best year you could possibly have. Enjoy each and every day, no matter what the circumstance. Every moment of pleasure or pain gets us to where we are today. It makes us stronger.
I love all of you. Seriously. Reading comments, emails, and tweets from my readers makes my day. It reconfirms that I’m doing what I love and making a difference one irresistible little dollface at a time. I can’t wait for all the plans I have in 2011 with Irresistible Icing.
In September of this year, I took the biggest leap of faith of my life. I quit my job of 7 years to pursue my real dreams and passions. Why would I do something so crazy? Because I believe 200% in myself. I know what I’m really capable of and it is so much more than what I was doing. Is it scary? Hell yea! But worth every damn second of it.
Don’t live in fear. Don’t ever let anyone hold you back from your potential. You can do what ever the hell you want if you are determined and put all your blood, sweat, and tears into it (and a little sparkle).
All of my posts end with a clever little quote. As this is my last post of 2010, I’d rather leave you with a song that I dedicate to each of you. A friend of mine said this was her song of 2010 and I think that’s pretty freakin’ awesome. The lyrics are beautiful . . . .
Happy New Year Gorgeous. 2011 is OUR year!
