Welcome to 2019!

Happy New Year! I know, I am a couple weeks late, but I should still say it.

Folks, I am a little annoyed tonight. I was turned down for a job that I really wanted. And, its been a two month interview process that involved a flight half-way across the country, so it wasn’t like my resumé was just tossed in the bin. I was on the short list!! I fully realize not everyone can get the position, but Damn it! when is it going to be my turn people! UGH!

Anyway, now that I have that out of the way I can move on. Sometimes you just need to vent and roll around in self pity for a while.

Now on to the New Years Resolutions!

I decided not to do the typical “exercise more” or “eat better” resolutions. Those I work towards every day. There is one thing that I have not really done, however, and I have decided that 2019 is the year. This year I have resolved to begin putting my needs front and center!

Although my partner would probably say I am an ass, I am the type of person who makes most of his decisions based on what I think others need. I have always wanted to make sure the people around me are happy. Well, this has often resulted in no one being happy, and definitely has not left me feeling fulfilled. Usually I just toss back a bag of M&M’s and a pizza or allow myself some shopping therapy and that does the trick. Sadly, my waistline and cholesterol are now unhappy with all my “make Sam happy” foods, and my retirement fund is now going towards paying off all the credit card debt. Something has to change, and that has to be me!

I am going to find my “happy” in 2019. and not just the happy that comes from pizza and new shoes, but the happy that comes from being honest and true to myself. And at the least, I will have something to write about.

How are your resolutions going so far?

Until next time!
