Well, it should surprise NO ONE that not only did I NOT get my sh*t together in 2016, I actually added more sh*t then completely lost track of it all and am essentially starting over. Again. Sooooo, here we go again, for the 8th time now…. Get Your Sh*t Together Debbie!!!
The first indicator here that I lost my sh*t instead of getting it together, is probably the fact that it is mid-February and I am JUST NOW getting to my first blog post of 2017. Not to mention that I only posted EIGHT TIMES in 2016. WHAT?!?!?! Wait, so why am I doing this? Well, we all know that I am not a Doer. Or a Finisher. It’s amazing that I even Started any of this, so, I am going to take it still as a win….
Goal #1: GYST in 2016
Nope. Didn’t happen. I didn’t get my sh*t together. I made ZERO progress in KonMari-ing my house and am still stuck in the middle of Paper. I definitely lost about 100 pounds throughout the year, but I also gained about 100 pounds so I am totally back to where I started. I not only did not stop splurge spending on things like Starbucks, I increased my visits from weekly to daily AND increased my drink order from Grande to Venti. So, if my goal was to Make My Sh*t Worse, than I totally succeeded.
Goal #2: Find Myself in Blogging
Oops. Did you hear that I only blogged 8 times in 2016? Compared to 45 posts in 2015. And it is my 2 year blog anniversary this week! I am still a little lost in my blogging. I feel like I haven’t found my niche yet. Am I a craft blog? A party blog? A baking blog? A home/decor/organizing blog? A Disney blog? Is it a journal blog? Who knows! Well, I do know that I am a Pinterest-based blog, based on my many many pins and interests. So I guess that is a start!
2016 New Year’s Resolutions
- Finish What I Started: Wait, what was I suppose to finish? Did I even start?
- Stop Complaining: I think I actually made some progress here! I at least made an effort! Well, unless you consider this post complaining since I didn’t accomplish any of my goals or resolutions, sooooooo…. Back to square one!
Well, despite my lack of blogging and pinning, I somehow still gained views and am close to 16,000 total views on the blog. I increased my number of Facebook page followers as well as Pinterest followers. Oh, and I met one of my favorite bloggers, Jillian Leslie, over at Catch My Party!
2017 Goals and Resolutions
While I will continue my never-ending quest to get my sh*t together, 2017 will also be the Year of Taking Responsibility. I am responsible for my actions, my decisions, my life and circumstances.
Goal #1: GYST 2017 (same old, same old)
Goal #2: Blog More
2017 New Year’s Resolutions
- Take Better Care of Myself: Physically. Emotionally. All Around.
- Take Responsibility for My Life: Own it.
If I break it all down, I need to eat less, exercise more, sleep more, buy less, put things away, finish what I start, enjoy life, appreciate what I have, acknowledge that I create my own world, accept the world I have created, and move on. Okay, easy to say, easy to type, super hard to do. So, here we go!
