My New Year’s Resolution 2017

New Year’s Resolution

I know I am a bit late in posting this but I had to put a lot of thought into what I wanted to say. I don’t necessarily believe in New Year’s resolutions.  I prefer to call it…New Year Goals.  Last year 2016, my goal was to get my personal life situated, sell my house, buy a new one, write more, read more…hopefully publish a new book.  As it turns out I was successful in some areas and not in others.  The goal is to continue on the path of self-improvement.  In that way, I was very successful.  I didn’t sell another book, nor did I finish the one I was writing.

However….I am not one to divulge into a vat of despair because I didn’t accomplish something. So….

This years New Year’s Goals for 2017:

  1. Stop spending money I don’t have. (Yes I have a solid plan!)
  2. Finish writing a book. ( I have two started so maybe finish two books!) Yes I am nothing if not ambitious.
  3. Read more ( I will put this on every years goals until I can no longer see!) Although then I will just get audio books….never give up!
  4. Write more in this blog! (sorry its been dismal in 2016 but I vow to do better J )

It is a short list but doable. For the record i also don’t believe in dropping my goal if I fall off the wagon.  So if I use my Credit Card I won’t abandon my goal (especially if it’s to buy more books 😉 I will pick myself up and continue on trying to achieve my goal.

So I wish you all the best in 2017 and all the luck and support in reaching your own New Year’s goal. Feel free to share those goals in the comments section and/or a link to your own post.

Superstition – Real or Not?

cat7cat.wordpress.com

Superstition is the belief in supernatural causality: that one event leads to the cause of another without any natural process linking the two events, such as astrology, religion, omens, witchcraft, etc., that contradicts natural science. (wikipedia)

I am the type of person that likes to defy the natural order and go against what others believe t be bad luck.  When I was a kid, I stepped on every crack I could find,  and my mother’s back is just fine.  (And no I wasn’t trying to hurt her!).

This doesn’t mean I don’t believe in magic or other things that science can’t prove, because I absolutely do believe in things I can’t see or explain. (Ghosts, Witches, Magic, reincarnation, and the creatures that I swear live in the wall sockets.)   I think I just like to live on the edge a little.  I’m the kind of person who wants to jump out of a perfectly good airplane!  reinventingsandib.com

Seriously it’s on my bucket list!

But back to superstition.  I have no issues going under a ladder, crossing a black cat (cause they are too cute!),or  opening an umbrella in the house just because it drives people nuts!  I don’t understand how people can come to the conclusion that these will cause bad luck.  How did this come to be?  And how does the superstition remain in this day and age?  I swear I must have broken at least a dozen mirrors in my lifetime and I really don’t have any more bad luck than the next guy.  Of course that is totally subjective.  Maybe if I had been more careful I would be a millionaire by now!  Or a world famous Author!

I came across this site with many common superstitions and I shook my head when I read them.

I mean seriously “A cat will try to take the breath from a baby”.  The cat just likes the smell of the milk the baby drank, they are not evil creatures.  How dare they insult the  kitty!  Kitty’s are sacred in some cultures.

The Egyptians new how to treat a cat! (Of course they also buried them with the dead to protect them in the next life – poor kitty)

Maybe I love black cats because of the Witch in me?  They are just adorable.  How can anyone ever think this guy is bad luck?

So my question to you is …Do you believe in any superstitions? What are they?  How did you come to believe in this?  I love hearing from you, so please leave a comment.
