Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes! - Express Yourself

   
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Express Yourself meme is a weekly jaunt brought to you by Dani at Entertaining Interests and Jackie at Bouquet of Books. At the beginning of the month the girls will post a gadget with a list of topics, something different for each week. Make sure to head on over to either of these blogs to check out the details more fully and see who else is taking part.

 This weeks topic of conversation: Is there anything you'd like to change, or work on, about yourself this year?


I would really like to work on my confidence this year, particularly when it comes to my writing. I've had a good start this year with my blogging and freewriting each day, and I've been getting some positive support from friends that have now started reading some of my stuff.

I spend too much of my time feeling unhappy and a little depressed, and I'm pretty sure I know the cause; I'm just not doing what I truly want to do with my life. Now I know what I want to be doing I can make more efforts towards it, so by the end of the year I would like to have made some significant progress towards it.

I've just got to maintain my positive thinking!

How about you? Is there anything you want to work on about yourself this year?

  2. Knowing what you want is the key to better direction. The problem is, we don't always know what we want ;)

    I want to spend more time writing and reading this year.

  3. Good luck with your goals, Heather :)

    I'd like to be more of a "yes-man" this year - say yes to things more, so opportunities don't pass me by.

  4. My main goal is rather boring in that it is to lose weight. I am using the 52 diet and so far so good. Sometimes it is hard to change due to circumstances. I would love to travel more or start a relationship but I am my disabled mother's full time carer and I am also a full time single parent. So, I am striving at achievable goals such as losing weight, finishing my book, working hard improving my book review skills and completing my degree. Good luck achieving your own goals.

    1. Thanks Christopher. It can be hard to juggle all of our normal life duties, but establishing gentle manageable goals is good. Otherwise there's always the danger of over doing it.
      Good luck with your weight loss, and your other goals!

  7. Good luck with your confidence building! Self belief is so important.

    I'm in a thought re-wiring process myself. I'm determined to shape happier, healthier thoughts this year, even and especially through the tough times.
