I know why. I finally realized the hidden secret to why all my other attempts at New Years' Resolutions have failed. I'm disorganized. Did you know that I lost like 35 pounds or something in 2010? Yep. This time, two years ago, I was a stay-at-home mom and discovered Clean Eating. I went full force into a workout program and completely detoxified my diet. I felt fabulous. I looked great. My skin was GLOWING. Why would I ever STOP what I was doing? Well, I started working again. I got lazy. Too much was happening and I wasn't organizing. Then we started our own company, Market Street Stamps, and everything took a front seat while I took a back seat. That's silly because how could I take care of everything else if I wasn't taking care of myself?

I am busy, and I am pressed for time. I have a lot of people counting on me, but I can't let the pressure I feel control how I take care of myself anymore. There have been countless times this past year that I wanted to run away and hide. No one told me owning my own business would be this hard. - oh wait. Yeah they did. I just didn't listen. ;)
Here's the cool thing - I believe God (and you can believe the Universe, Karma, whatever you want, cause that's not what this is about - it's about having FAITH) puts people in my life for a reason. Sometimes it's to teach me a lesson, sometimes it's to give me love that I often times don't give myself. People told me to keep going, that it would be ok. Brush yourself off and keep moving forward. Sometimes all I needed was a hug, or someone to laugh at my jokes to make me feel like I was still worthy of living this life I've been given (and I praise God that my children think I am the funniest being in the universe, because most days, their smiles are all I need to keep me moving).

So tell me, what are your Resolutions? Did you make any? If not, why?
