Acts of Volition.

I have never been one to embark on a new years resolution.  I mean, not an authentic resolution, that contains some substance.  Everyone vows to eat healthy or give something up, or do more of something... right?  But what about a commitment to something bigger?  Something soul searching? Something to define who you are?

I am unsure why, but for some reason, I think Twenty Sixteen is going to be a great year.  For myself and my family.  Because in the first time in my 30something years, I am...

searching for something.

I have no idea what I am looking for.  I have no idea what I really want.  All I know is that I will be looking.  And my family is going to be blessed with my efforts.

I rarely ask for anything for me.  Crikey, even when I AM given something, I am always thinking of how I can use it for someone else, or if someone else would get better use from it.  I received $250 for my birthday of which I spent $40 on me.  That is 16%.

This year, my resolution is ME.  I am going to invest more time in ME!!!  I am worth more than 16%.

I can tell you now, I am going to struggle with this.  I feel incredibly guilty when I don't have 100% of my thoughts on my kids and husband.  I am so very blessed to have the opportunity to be a full-time stay-at-home mum.  
This is my job.  My. Job.

However my babies are growing up.  The kids are alright.  They are blooming in their own ways.  Now it is my turn. 

This year I will attempt to explore ME.  I think she is a pretty awesome person.   I think she is taken for granted.  I think she is capable of more than she ever thinks possible.

I have written a personal goal list.  And I am keeping it a secret.  For a number of reasons.  Mainly because I just want to casually explore 2016 without anyone keeping track of me.  I will however,  blog about it along the way.

I am looking forward to exploring the opportunities that lie ahead.

This is the beginning of anything I want.
