What Resolutions??? & My Bling Bling

I thought about doing a recap of our 2011, but I honestly don't know how I could whittle through the past year and pick out just a few things.  Every moment of this past year was a blessing, it was another year spent with my family.  Loving my husband.  Watching my son grow into his own.  I like how he's able to communicate more now.  I can't say I loved the infant stage.  I like being able to interact with Connor and he's so sweet and loving at this age. 

I don't make resolutions.  Well, maybe I do, but they aren't just because the calendar says it's a certain day and the newspapers are filled with diet and workout ads.  I don't think I am really a "gym" person.  I do like getting outdoors and doing things with my family like hiking.  That is why sometimes I wonder what it would be like to live some place where the temps aren't 115+ degrees in the summer! Ugh!

I think about the future a lot.  I have dreams, hopes, and ambitions of my own.  I want my son to have all the things I never had as a child....what parent doesn't?

I want to lose 20-30 pounds and lose this Jello jiggler belly.  It's there trust me.  I don't feel has hot as I once did, but I do feel comfortable and I enjoy life.  Terence and I both try to motivate each other to be healthier and keep one another on track.  I know I couldn't do this alone because I am not as disciplined as he is.  I couldn't live this life without my boys. 

So my resolution is not really a resolution at all....I just want to slow down...enjoy the small things.  Quit stressing if Connor drops a crumb on the floor, or if Terence doesn't put a dish in the dishwasher.  Try and tame my OCD a little bit eh???  Not let my anxiety get the best of me. 

Try and be the best wife and mother I can. 

Speak positive words & not negative ones. 

We are not promised tomorrow.  Live, laugh, love, rejoice with your families and make the best of the life you have.  It's YOUR life.

Own it.  Live it.  Be present.
