Its 2013. I’m not making any resolutions this year. The main one from last year; to lose weight, was accomplished. But I do have goals for myself. For one, be kind to me and do what’s good for me. That being said not everything I want to do is good for me in the long run. What I mean is be good to myself by accomplishing, creating, enjoying things that will make me a better person in the long run. Take time to enjoy the people I’m with, read more, enjoy life more, take more deep breaths and try to live more in the moment and not always worrying about the future.
I’ve read many posts lately about one word that will sum up 2013. That’s a hard thing to do. Perhaps “Enjoy” or “Kind” or “Live”. This past year was full of ups and downs. Marriage issues, kids, big purchases, returning back to work. All general things in life. This year I would like to live life more smoothly. Yes I know there will be bumps along the way but I want to focus on living life and making choices that create less bumps, maybe a slight jiggle only. Does that make sense?
Christmas this year was good. L turned 2 on Dec 22nd, and although he hated his birthday and screamed and cried when it was time for cake, he did enjoy Christmas morning. And he absolutely loved New Year’s. Stayed up till midnight even without showing any signs of being tired. Crazy! He is home with me this week until his return to daycare next Monday, which by the way he enjoys thankfully!! Quite unlike his sister when she was her age!
S is such a big girl now. She really enjoyed her Christmas holidays and was ecstatic that we didn’t have to leave my brother in law’s house before midnight on Dec 31st so she could ring in the New Year with her cousins. Her grandmother got her and her 2 other cousins this year Ipod Touches so she’s been doing a lot of “Facetime” with them and her friends from school.
Me, well…Christmas was good in that I enjoyed watching the kids be happy, things were calm between J and I. No major issues but no overjoyed feelings. I guess it’s a start.
