Where Have I Been

Where Have I Been?!

Where Have I Been

 

Yes, I know it’s been too long since I have written a post.  Where have I been?!  I never went anywhere, I’ve just been busy with clients. As I write this blog post, I have to laugh at myself.  I’m always getting on my clients about not writing weekly blog posts. I tell them that it’s very important that your customers see your knowledge of certain issues.

2016 was a crazy year.  It was my Year Of Yes.  I took some risks and stepped outside of my comfort zone many times.  I started working with small businesses managing their social media platforms.  I love what I do.  Looking for more clients (hint, hint).  I’ll just leave my People Per Hour profile here.  I am working on a new website too.  This is something I didn’t think I would be doing last year at this time.  What a difference a year makes.

About my weight loss journey.  I haven’t really been concentrating on that.  I’ve been trying to make wise decisions and not eat too much.  I basically eat what I want, no snacking and I work out a lot less.  I’m finding that my body has been responding to that.  I have lost some weight and without depriving myself.

I do miss working out on a daily basis.  Also as a woman of a certain age, I know I should be working out with weights more to build muscle.  I will get back to doing that, but instead of working out for hours a day, I will do maybe 30-45 minutes per day.  With my body I have discovered that less is more.

I will try to do monthly updates because weekly doesn’t seem to work for me.  So I just want to say Happy New Year to everyone and let’s make this year better than last year!

Let me know how you’re doing and what you are planning to do to make this year better?

Year of Yes

Year of Yes!

Year of Yes

 

I’m in a rut.  I need a change.  I was reading an article about Shonda Rhimes and her book  Year of Yes. Shonda Rhimes is the creator of the shows Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and my favorite, How to Get Away With Murder. Shonda is an introvert like me and we like to stay in our comfort zone.

I am always shying away from things that I know I should do, but I am afraid to do.  I have stepped out of my comfort zone a bit in 2015.  I acquired my certificate in Social Media Management, volunteered at TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) and contributed a couple of articles to Midlife Boulevard.  I have also started advertising my social media services on Fiverr and PeoplePerHour.com.

I need to step out more, take more chances and be more confident.  It’s easier said than done.  My son said to me this morning “I know it’s difficult for you to come out of your comfort zone.”  I have never said this to my son before.  The fact that he knows this makes me want to do it even more! This is one of the reasons I’m writing this post, to hold myself accountable. Doing this project the Year Of Yes makes me very nervous and excited. I enjoy a challenge.  This will be one of the biggest challenges for me ever!

I know the new year starts in a couple of weeks, but I want to start now. If I put it off, I’m afraid I won’t do it. No more procrastinating for me!

Will you join me, on my quest to say yes?! Is there anything you didn’t say yes to?! Do you regret it?! Tell me about in the comments section! Let me know if you decide to challenge yourself and say yes!
