Now Amanda has just told me that since I have spent such a long, long time looking after other people (my mum and husband), that this year I should look after myself and get to know the real me.  I put my life on hold as I cared for them and while I cared for them out of love I had very little time for myself.

So now I am on my own for the first time in a long time, and it is time for me to start enjoying \”me\”.

Its hard to find my feet sometimes, I have my ups and downs and I miss the closeness of the relationships I had with them, and long to share my life with someone special again. But until that day happens I need to find myslef.

Amanda says I should start to experience everything on my list for myself, and take the time to make each thing on my list a blissful, joyful moment in my life. She said I should leave out No.23 though. LOL

So, thank you Amanda. Love you, girlie pants.

    but she has right in telling you looking for you and try everything you want..
    do everything with joy and of course with abandonment and attendentness

    ello Lizard!!! i love looking over this list sometimes just to find out a little more about you.

    i’ve asked Lizard to leave out 23 because i don’t want anything in the list to potentially hurt her. i think she needs a bit of ‘non-hurt’ time.

    lizard and i are going to ‘officially launch’ her list. we’re going to drink red wine, eat gooey cheese and begin the year of the list.

    and i have a pressie for you too, lizard. there’s more to this list yet to come.

    love you chicken pants.
