2013.... A Troubled Year Ending ..... 2014 ... The Year of New Beginnings

Tuesday, December 24, 2013

Well we are coming to the end of a year that has been both troubled and a blessing .... This year has
brought us sickness, financial woes because of a job lost, let downs and trying times because of fibromyalgia and my artritis .... Sometimes the pain was unbearable and with no one around to help Mike had to work and lots of days come home to a dark *penthouse* with no meals prepared and me in the bed crying and I am so thankful I have him, out of all the men in the world I have him :) but through all that we have seen  some blessings  Another job was found that turned out to be far better than the one lost and this one even offers an opportunity to maybe move back home to the US..... or at least give us a little hope ... Then there are the people that helped us get back on our feet financially  who we will be forever grateful too .... I complain so many times that no one cares but there are some that go even beyond letting you know they care, they show you ..... We are indeed truly blessed

Now soon it will be a new year and with a new year comes new beginnings .... We tend to set new goals and with some we never make it pass the first month but we still start each year the same way ....That is what I am going to do this year .... I am going to start the year with new goals .... I want to have a better year this year and although the law of average will say I will fail to succeed in most of them well I will be thankful I tried and happy because I accomplished some of them.... I know somewhere inside me I have will power because 4 years ago I gave up smoking and I smoked at least a pack a day for 35 years before so I know I can do this!

I figured if I share them here with you it might make it more of a challenge for me to succeed so here goes........

January 1st 2014

I am going to start walking and there will be no excuse .... I will walk no less  than 5 days a week

I am going to have a treat such as junk food once every 2 weeks ....

I am ridding our home of all sweets junk and bad carbs

I am going to try and eat lighter suppers and no eating after 8pm

I am going to continuing with my therapist and try to stop being so angry ...I have so much to be happy for

I am going to get my life back on track .... Health. Finances, Happiness and most important letting go of people and things that make me unhappy and angry ...... I am going to start being around people that truly  want me to succeed and most important ........

I am going to start liking Me again and get my self confidence back

So hopefully next December I will be able to say I did it ... I did them all ....

So my Friends I want to thank you again for reading my blog and encouraging me with your comments .... I also want to wish each of you a very Merry Christmas and a happy and safe  New Year

“But is it such a bad thing to live like this for just a little while? Just for a few months of one's life, is it so awful to travel through time with no greater ambition than to find the next lovely meal? Or to learn how to speak a language for no higher purpose than that it pleases your ear to hear it? Or to nap in a garden, in a patch of sunlight, in the middle of the day, right next to your favourite fountain? And then to do it again the next day?”
