Anyone else picture Carrie from the Sex & the City movie running to meet Miranda when you hear that song? Just me? K. Moving on..
by the way it apparently means "old long since" or "long long ago" or even "days gone by"
I kind of hated this year. I try look on the bright side of things, but this year was probably one of the worst I have had. Nothing really huge happened, nothing really good happened, but there were so many semi-large pretty crappy things that happened. You won't find those on this blog. I prefer to mostly document the happy moments.. but just trust me when I say they were crappy.
This year. This year is going to be different. I can just feel it.
Honestly, I have high hopes that it is going to be the best year yet.
Some of the not so swell things that happened this past year are going to carry over.. they haven't been wrapped up yet. But I am going to hand those things to God. Because of these events, I have grown closer to God, closer to Andrew, and closer to my family. I have put some major things in perspective and I feel like my heart is full now. So while these things were unfortunate, I am thankful they happened. Which leads me to believe that this next year is going to rock my socks off.
Confused yet? Sorry for being so vague. It is what it is.
I'm not sure I really believe in resolutions. I don't want to get down on myself if I fail.. but I do have a couple of goals I would like to try to achieve.
First off- I'd like to eat healthier, be more active. I'd like to start small, with the working out at least. Maybe start out with something like this before every shower:
Then, I would like to pray every night. I've already been working on this and doing pretty well. Aside from prayer, I'd like to go to church every week. I was doing pretty well with this but now Andrew works a lot of Sundays and I don't like to go alone. So, I have found a preacher I really enjoy on TV and have already set the DVR to record his sermons on Sundays, just in case.
This past year, I was fairly good at saving money. It's not too hard when you're living with your parents [which I still am- another sort of goal I'm working on] but I still spent a lot on unnecessary items and clothes I didn't need. I'd like to try a little harder to put at least half my pay check into savings until I am living on my own.
Lastly, I'd really like to work on my time management. I need to spend less time watching tv and more bettering my life and showing those I care about how much they mean to me. One day these people won't be here and I don't want to have a single regret. Not only that.. but I'd like to show more kindness to everyone around me. It is so easy for me to lose my patience and I really need to stop and think about my actions and the words I use.. even if I am thinking the things to myself- we are all human and deserve respect and kindness.
I'd also like to thank all of you who stop by and read and comment on this little blog of mine. I appreciate you all so much and I wish you the very happiest 2013!
I will be back later this week with a couple Christmas recaps :)
Enjoy your night & be safe!
