New Year Revolution

Ok I think I am ready, The dreaded conclusion to my Dead Wood Post of last year. Still, I am not a fan of New Year Resolutions but this seems the right time of year to make changes.

I just had a read through the last dead wood post and it seems I have done pretty well. I have kept to most of the things that I wanted to change in my head space but it seems the negativity has still been creeping in. Its sooooo{!!!!} hard to be bloody positive all the time, any of the time.

I have continued on my house cleansing and regularly take a Ute load of stuff back to vinnies or the tip. Of course I am bringing things home from my thrifting adventures but they do not stay closed up in my heart and the attachment to objects has been waning. I have even cleared out a lot of things I have been hoarding from my youth. Things that I have been keeping because at the time it was the "best" thing I owned or meant something silly and sentimental to me. I don't need these things to remind me of moments or times in my life...that's what photos and my brain is for.

Another aim was forgiveness....forgiveness of myself and forgivenss of others. With both it seems I FAIL massive, a grudge is one thing I'm actually quite good at. I struggle to let go of the hurt from others and for things that I have done to others. I think that because there has been no resolution to most of these problems I am unable to move past them. Forgiveness is something that I need to work on. I don't know how to get there either.

I want to continue to try to live simply, to stick to the ideals of a Permaculture Self Revolution with out all the new age hippy rubbish. You will not find me in a circle, holding hands and singing to mother earth. I do believe we all  need to focus on being self sustaining, all small things make a difference. The Revolution starts at home and with YOU!! I liked this picture and words below. I do not know the original source.

I do have faith that somewhere in the future I will find the happy Michelle and I don't think she is close. There is a lot of work to do here still.
