My last post this year of 2011

To be honest, I will be glad when this year ends. It hasn't been a bad year as such, but I am ready now to say goodbye to a somewhat strange year and welcome in 2012. I am hoping that 2012 will be a good year for my family and friends and not to sound too selfish but I hope it is a good year for me too. I'm not that mushy about new year as such but I am hoping it will be the beginning of the fresh start I need. Not working for a month now has given me time to think about some of the things I want out of my life in 2012. I need to change my attitude and some aspects of my life need an overall. I'm hoping the changes I am thinking about will be achieveable goals/targets rather than the proverbial resolutions that we so often make come the 1st of January and are forgotten about by the 30th of January.

My first goal that I want to share now (ahead of the 1st) concerns this blog. Firstly, some of you may have noticed I have changed the design template. I could have left that until the 1st but I feel that changing it a day before leads me into the direction I want to head into come midnight tomorrow night.

My aspiration for this blog is that I visit it more often and share more. Currently I have only been posting very sporadically. This is mainly because I haven't felt very creative and thus I haven't wanted to share much on the blog. I think. partly it is due to the lull I have been feeling post being made redundant. I haven't settled into a routine yet and to be honest I've been really lazy. Projects that have been swimming in my head for months just haven't come to fruition. JYC is non existant and I hardly made any Christmas cards this year. Thus today, I have given myself a little talking to and said to myself this. "That is all in the past. Just move on from today and start again tomorrow afresh with a new attitude".

My goal now is to post on a more regular basis. I'm not giving myself a large target such as every day as I know I will not do that, but I am sure I can at least post a couple of times a week. Plus I am hoping that I will still continue with the Colour Blog Hop once a month and 10 on the 10th. I'll be realistically happy if I can at least post 10 times a month.

My next post will be on the 1st where I will share some other apsirations for the year 2012

Good evening from Pickle Land

I hope to speak to you very soon

Love Lesley xx

Happy Birthday to Me

Its my Birthday.  I am 42 years old.  Wow, how did that happen?????? Is still feel like I'm 21

A fresh start

I am currently at ease with myself and the way my life is at present.

That is a huge statement for me to share and also a very long time coming.

The past few years have been really tough.  Life seemed to have totally gone off track.  My life felt off kilter and to a point not my own.  I suffered deeply with depression, had a crappy job, my relationship with my husband was at times very strained and I had become very insular and within myself.  Life felt hard and I suffered greatly.

I got a new job, and for a few months I hated it.  It didn't float my boat so to speak.  I thought I could do better.  I felt like I had taken a huge step backwards career wise, I was unhappy and felt broken.  But I suddenly had an AHA moment.  I realised that I could and should change my attitude towards it.  I didn't want to look for a new job as it had taken a while to find this one and I hated filling in application forms and going to interviews.  I didn't want to find a job where I would…

I'm back

It's been far too long.  But I'm back. Just checking in at the moment, but I'm going to start visiting again.  New attitude, new me, excited for the new journey I'm on.  Watch this space.

Love Lesley xxxxx
