Late to the Party

I know it’s a little late to be posting about New Years but better late than never, am I right?  Since I was busy recovering from a cold last week, I’m only now getting around to reflecting on 2014.  On the surface it seemed pretty boring but once I started digging into what I’m grateful for in the last year, it got a little brighter.  Here’s a few.

My job

Overtime money

Spiritual growth

My church groups and the people I’ve met there

My health

This blog

Lack of tragedy

All the sunshine this summer

All the good books I read

My nutritionist

My office with a window

Every mistake I learned from

Shopping days and kitchen painting days

Cathartic tears

Having the money to get my wisdom teeth removed

My vacation to Gramma’s and Gramma’s visit here

God strengthening me to face each day

Getting respect, no matter how short-lived

Letting go of some of the fear of being 28 and single

Surrendering my life to God and sticking to the commitment

When you put it that way, 2014 wasn’t half bad.  So, here’s to 2015!  Happy New Year, y’all!


New Year’s Resolutions!!! Woooo!!!

Week 1:  I’m going to workout everyday, do yoga everyday, eat right everyday, keep my stress level down, go to church every week.  This.  Is.  Awesome.  I’m really going to do it this year.  Go me!!

Week 2:  Okay, week one wasn’t perfect, but you’ll make up for it this week.  Church?  Check.  Whole grains?  Check.  Those cookies were whole grain, right?  Workout?  Check.  Yoga?  Check.  Didn’t yell at deadbeat client.  That’s a check.

Week 3:  We can do better this week.  Church?  Check.  Yoga?  Does falling asleep while deep breathing count?  Workout?  Half check.  Ice cream has milk, so check.  Don’t I have a stress ball around here?

Week 4:  Okay, okay, okay, back on track.  Church?  Check.  Yoga?  Check.  Workout?  I threw my back out getting a box out of the archive because that stupid guy just had to have that info from three years ago and that box just had to be on the top shelf and now I have to go to the chiropractor.  Stress level?  Don’t ask.

Week 5:  Church?  No.  Too exhausted.  Bad Christian.  Will try to be better.  Yoga?  Who has time for that?  Workout?  No.  Back still too sore.  Stress level?  Cried in the bathroom at work.  Food?  Burger King.

Week 6:  Screw it.

Happy New Year everybody!!!
