Project 365- Day 24 Me, Me, Me

I say it ALL. THE. TIME.  I need to make time for myself, I am going to make time for myself.  I will feel better.  I will look better. Blah! Blah! Blah! Sometimes I think I just like to hear myself talk.  Because what I say and what I do are 2 completely different things.
Believe me I understand why I need to do it.  I understand how important it is.  I understand that I need to put myself first every now and then.  But if someone could please oh please explain to me how I get rid of the guilt I feel when doing something for me.
I grew up with a mother who NEVER did anything for herself EVER.  She worked and worked and worked some more.  I never saw much of her during the week and on the weekends she spent her days with me until she got another job then she worked 7 days a week.  So I guess I always felt and was taught that only selfish people do things for themselves.
I am working on my issues but sometimes I feel like I will never change. I am trying each and everyday to be healthier and eat healthier.  Here is a pot of soup I made, baby steps.

PROJECT 365- DAY 22 Through the Eyes

The eyes tell a lot about a person. You can see sadness, happiness, so many emotions come through the eyes. I often wonder what people are thinking when they look at me, what do they see?  Do they see all I have been through?  Do they care?

There is a rainbow in the sky.  I wish there was a pot of gold at the end because I could use one right about now.

Not really sure where our lives are going, hubby's job is changing location so we will have to relocate.  I am so tired of moving, I just want to settle somewhere, anywhere.  I want to fell content.

Project 365- Day 11 - Coffee

Project 365 Day 9- Another Year Older

Happy Birthday to me. Another year older, and still not where I want to be in my life, maybe next year. I am learning a lot of lessons about people and people I thought I was important to.  I will never again put so much effort into others that treat me like I do not matter.  Maybe I can use all that energy on something worth while.

Project 365 Day 5- Owls, Jewelry, and Education Oh My

I love owls, I especially love owl jewelry.  My son picked this out for me for Christmas with a little help from hubby and i just love it.  Owls stand for wisdom and education to me and I have always been fond of them.  It was drilled into my head as a child that I must always get an education, no one would ever be able to take it from me.  I was the first person in my family to graduate High School, the first to graduate college and the first to earn my Master's Degree.  Although lots of people remind me on a daily basis that I don't have a "job,"  I know that I will always have the education and degrees that I worked so hard for.

Practice Makes Perfect Project 365 Day 4

I need to start living by this and start practicing all the things I want to accomplish this year.  I will start practicing to make the time to do those things.

Repeat, Repeat, Repeat Project 365 Day 3

I repeat myself a lot, most of the time nobody listens.  I can say over and over again that something upsets me or offends me but people will continue to say the same things.  I can remind my husband of things 100 times and he still forgets. I can repeat the same exercise day after day and not see the results I want.  I thought today's picture should be about repetition but in a more colorful and pleasant way.

Happy 2014 Project 365 Day 1

Happy 2014!   Wow is 2013 over already? I have so many things I want to do this year, so many things I want to accomplish.  I am not going to make any resolutions. To resolve means to settle or to find a solution to or decide firmly on a course of action.  I know that there are many things that I want to accomplish but I know that I have no idea or plan written in stone to do them.  I am going to go through this year and go with the flow so to speak.  I will do whatever I need to do or whatever feels natural.  I am trying harder and harder as I get older to just go with my gut. I know that I definitely want to put myself out there more, try new things, make some new friends, but how I will go about all that is still unknown. So Happy New Year, let's make 2014 a great year.  I hope you enjoy following me through this Project 365.
