My Three Words for 2013

just.Be.enough has asked its readers to choose three words that will help them focus on their goals and dreams for 2013.  My three words are:CHANGE, ACCEPTANCE, and PERSISTENCE.  

Long before I stumbled upon just.Be.enough's launch of Three Words, I had decided that 2013 was going to be my year.  I know that I want to make personal changes this year that include learning to love and accept myself as I am, with all my flaws and insecurities.  I am also on the pursuit of happiness. I believe that now is the time that I start living the life that I deserve, that I am destined to have. 

 At times I am not sure if life is passing me by or trying to knock me down.  I just want to take life by the horns and tame it to my liking, I guess you could say and I feel that persistence will be the key to experience my life in a brand new and improved light.  Now that I am older and wiser, I feel that nothing should be holding me back.  Yet, it seems that January went by so fast that I haven't really been able to work as hard as I would have liked towards my goals.  I suffer from depression and been dealing with the illness since I was diagnosed at age 19 (I am 42 now).  I will not let it get in the way of me changing to better myself.  Despite the daily struggles I face, I am more positive than I have ever been in my life.  I am embracing change one day, one month at a time.  I am more accepting of myself than I have ever been.  I guess not caring what others think about you comes with age, thank goodness.  I am now able to focus on the tasks and goals at hand.  And that is for me to live a happier, more fulfilled, loving life.

Since February is a short month, I will have to get down to business and work hard and focus to be able to achieve the steps necessary to reach my goals.  All I can say is that I don't think I have ever been more ready and eager for change.  I have lived a stale life long enough.  I want to live. Now I just have to get my broken down car fixed.  Being without a car for a week and a half, it  sure put a damper on my plans.  But I am strong and determined that this too shall pass.  Bring it on February.

- thanks for such a great idea!  These three words I have chosen will surely change my life because I am enough....Jamie
