Good Mornign Ladies,

     How are you all today? I am great. In a deep, contemplative place today. I have come to a  “Life Changing” realization. Allow me to explain.

    Ok...this seems to be confession week for me. I have another startling revelation. This will not be a surprise if you read my last confession revealing that i am a totally unorganized person. This has plagued me my entire life and kept me from being the person i KNOW i am meant to be.  

    Ok...with that in mind, here is my new confession.

    I have never set any goals in my life. Never!  

    I always just “meander“, for lack of a better word. I am totally a “live and let live“, “whatever happens, happens” kinda gal. Not good. People have told me they admire my “laid back ” attitude and total faith in ....well, life.  

    But it is not good enough anymore and these people have no idea how much I struggle accomplishing even the most menial day to days.

    Enter Yana Berlin and Fab40. Telling me, showing me, I can be the person I secretly wished I always was.  

    Enter 2009 and the promise of a  fresh New Year,

 a New Beginning.
I can be organized...
step by step,
list by list,
goal by goal,
One day at a time,
One thing at a time. Right?!
I am excited, anxious, nervous about this. What if i fail? What if i am destined to be an unorganized , scatterbrain for life?
I need prayer.
I need guidance.
I need friendship,
I Need patience and....
I need a plan!

    Where to start?
When i figure it out. I will let you know!

    • I know all about this...normally I am right on it...very organized...maybe at times too daughters say I am anal about it and that I drive them nuts!  But on the flip side of that...I know when my life is turned upside down so is everything else...the last few months my plate has been full...and when my life gets to that point I tend to let things go...and that is what I have been doing...
      I guess what I am saying is MY clutter reflects the mess in my daily life...guess it’s time to clean up.

      I am not sure if this is the same for you...but I do agree that reaching out is a good place to start...where we lack motivation I do believe we will find’s a good place to start....happy

    • Ree,

       I agree with Vikki, you know what they say, “admitting you have a problem” is step one.

       Keep walking.

      much love

    • Of all the ladies here on fab40, you’ve always been someone special, Ree. You throw your hat in the ring when someone needs support all the time. You‘re just a good kind caring person.

      So, that being said, as you make that list and do your best to accomplish anything you desire step by step, the women here on this site will definitely prop you up and help you in any way you need.

      Me, included.

    • Ree, I am so proud of you! I used to be very much like you described. I never thought I could work a job where I had to be somewhere at a certain time everyday. But I do, and I love it!  

      I’m so glad you are here among all these supportive ladies to cheer you on and give you good feedback. Thank you for sharing your “secret” with us!
