*I am constantly reflecting on myself, and thus, coming up with ways to improve myself.
* I am not the type of person to let life control me. I believe you are in charge of your own destiny (well, mostly as one cannot control everything).
*I actually do pretty well on things that I put off until the last minute.
*Sometimes I think too much. A little less thought and a lot more action is needed.
*I come up with too lofty of goals and fail miserably. My expectations are simply too high.
*The honest truth is I procrastinate because I am afraid of failing. Which frustrates the ambitious side of me, but I can seriously be paralyzed by fear of failure. However, like I said above, I do pretty well on last minute projects so I would love to see how I do with things I actually put more time into.
By now you're probably wondering: What the heck does this have to do with your blog??? Well, I haven't posted in so long, and I want to do a better job of doing so. I also want to blog more about all the things that interest me: clothes and beauty products (yup, I'm slightly materialistic -- but I'll explain more in a later post), books, TV shows, movies, exercise, diet (or what I like to call eating healthily but not cutting anything out), education, and of course Claire (my daughter).
I would also like to work on having a more positive view and demeanor. I don't want to complain all the time, would love to be more compassionate, and be able to make lemonade out of lemons. I firmly believe in the power of positive thinking, as well as karma. You get what you give, and I want to get and give happiness.
This concludes my first official new and improved blog post. I hope you liked it :)
