But first – thank you to those of you who commented on yesterday’s post. I deeply appreciate the insight and wisdom of the people I know here. Your willingness to look into yourself and share your perspective means a lot to me.
Now for TMI Tuesday. (I know it’s Wednesday -so what?) Borrowing this from A Slave to Master… who got it from the TMI blog.
1. Did you make any resolutions at the start of 2017? If yes, how did you do at keeping them? What one thing are you still doing?
No, I didn’t make any resolutions in 2017, and don’t think I have for years. I went back and looked at my blog posts in December of 2016 and January 2017, and there was nothing about resolutions. Maybe that’s what is missing in my life? Maybe it would be helpful to do resolutions again?
Hahahaha, no I don’t think that would do it. Never mind.
2. Pick three words to describe your year 2017.
Interesting, challenging, rewarding
3. What was your biggest personal change in 2017?
Personal change like “how did i change as a person?” I don’t know. I think that moving away from the place I’ve lived almost all my life has made some shifts in my priorities and in how I see myself. I think I still don’t know what changes will roll out from that move.
4. What was totally unexpected in your 2017?
My daughter and grandkids extending their visit from a few weeks to six months.
5. What was the best thing that happened to you in 2017?
Hard to say – you know the old saying, “It’s hard to tell your bad days from your good days til all your days come in.” I really believe that. But for sure, having more time to spend with my grandkids has been a huge gift. I think that moving here is going to be a cause for gratitude. Meeting jade and Sir Raven and monkey was amazing. Going to California, and taking the workshop I did, was a wonderful experience. Things changing at my work has been a huge benefit.
Bonus: Did you make new year resolutions for 2018? Share a few with us? Any of them repeats from 2017?
Nope, no resolutions. I have some goals. I want to lose back the six more of the 8 pounds i’ve gained since we moved here, and lose another 10 pounds. And, ok, another 10 or 20 after that. But 16 is a good place to start.
I want to publish an e-book – either some BDSM porn or some of my writing about BDSM.
I want to start using my Dragontree Planner.
I’ve had it for a while – fortunately, I got the undated version – I just need to start using it.
I got a meditation cushion for Xmas, maybe that will help me get started meditating more or doing yoga or this other healing movement thing that i’ve wanted to do
I want to buy a house..
And I want to go to BDSM events.
That’s a pretty ambitious list of goals, isn’t it? It’ll be interesting to see if I hit any of them.
