Sometimes life gives you lemons. What do you do? Sit and stare at them? Or do you throw them back and keep looking? My life has done a little somersault lately and I’ve definitely been
hit with handed, a few lemons. I’m not going to keep them. I’m giving them back, staying positive and looking forward to the future. I know it will get better.
I don’t make resolutions, it’s been a long time since I have. I try to make short term and long term goals that can, and will be fulfilled. When life is full of twists and turns, it’s sometimes very difficult to find the right road, or the proverbial path you’re supposed to take. I plan to change that this year. I know the way I need to go and it’s just a matter of getting there and having faith that it will all work out in the end. I will make achievable goals, and I will keep reminding myself that all negatives are temporary and around the corner is a positive and I just need to focus on it.
On a seriously positive note, I had an amazing New Years Eve and it’s been so many years since I have enjoyed one (or even stayed up to see the New Year in). I was surrounded by friends and loved ones and it was something I guess I was craving and didn’t realize how much until last night. It was a beautiful night. We played games, laughed, told stories and just hung out and it felt right. I realized that I am a mom first and foremost but I need to remember to take time for me and have fun, because I don’t do that enough. I don’t do that even half enough. My kids are all teenagers and they help me take care of my nephew and they do things around the house and I am not needed as much as before, which tells me it’s time for me to take some time for me.
My goals this year will involve family but when I make them, they will involve me too. Things I want and need to work on, plans I need and want to make and most of all, just remembering that I count too. There are major changes coming for me in 2014, with my personal life, my blog/business, and most of all in me.
Do you remember that you count, or do you forget sometimes?
Side note: Thank you to all of my amazing friends for the encouragement, support and loveyou have shown me in 2013. I am looking forward and excited to seeing how 2014 will bring us all closer. Some of you might not even realize that you are in my heart, because you think you live in my online world, but that’s not true. I have amazing friends both online and in everyday life, and I am finally ready to do what I need to do, thanks to all of you. Happy New Year!
