Here's one thing. I don't make New Year's resolutions! Ever. For the past decade at least. For one reason - I learned in the past that I suck at sticking to my goals. 

I usually make one (ONE? Hmmm...)  big mistake. Really big! 

When I finally set myself a goal I talk about it to anyone who'll listen. And there's a catch... 
I won't say that people are blocking me or that they are trying to hold me back, throwing obstacles in my path - but something has prevented me reaching my goals.

And then I figured it out (wow, what a revelation): IT WAS ME! 

Yes, me. I blocked myself. Don't ask me why. I still need to think about this... But every time I tell people about my goals, I fail to reach them! 

So, while on our family vacation I looked back - no, not on my life, way too many skeletons in the closet - but on my last goal, a goal that I set for myself three years ago. And I realised that I've actually achieved it. WOW!

That was an "A-HA" moment. I can do it. I just need to keep my mouth shut! 

So I said to myself... it's time to set another one! 
(I know, I know... you're probably thinking: "Now she's not just going to tell her friends, but the whole world!" ~~~ But I won't tell.)

And I did. Without any proper preparation relating to how the goal should be set, I did it. In my head. Although that second step is still somewhat in the 'under construction' phase...

I'm already half way up... I'm working on it.
