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 church groups and the people I’ve met there
Lack of tragedy
All the sunshine this summer
All the good books I read
My office with a window
Every mistake I learned from
Shopping days and kitchen painting days
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!
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!!!
