Happy 2014

It is the first day of the new year. You know that day we make promises and tell ourselves that all it takes is to make a few goals. Yup it is that day, the day we all count down to and wait for. This year I did something different. I did not wait for today to start making a difference in my family and myself. I knew about two weeks ago I had to make changes and there was no way I was going to wait until the start of the new year to get any of them started. It is not always easy; however, if you set your mind to something you can accomplish it.

Happy New Year and my this year bring you blessings.

          This year I am not making any promises nor am I making resolutions. It is not about what I can get done but instead what I know is on my heart that is needed to get done. I am a mother of four beautiful littles and they are by far the most important things in my life. God blessed me with the chance to raise his creations and I have been taking advantage of that blessings. To do so I need to make changes. Some I will not like and some I can handle. everything in between and everything surrounding will be my struggle.

This year I will be me. Here are some of the things I will be working towards and I am sure I will have many mistakes along the way.

  • I will get to a healthy and comfortable weight. It will not be determined by what the TV nor doctors think is best for me but what works for me at the moment. After I get to that healthy point I might want to further. 
  • I will take time to read my bible more, do a 1000 gifts, and read some more of my bible. Learning His gospel is important if I am going to teach my children all the things I wish were taught to me in reference to religion. Then when they are older they can make a wise decision if this oath of faith is for them.
  • Incorporate my mother in my life more. It would not hurt me to call and write to her and allow her to get to know her grandchildren.
  • Spend more time with my children and less time with my frustrations.   
  • Allow myself to make mistakes when it comes to school .... a 4.0 is not the end all and if I happen to drop below that I will remember that I am enjoying all the other blessings in my life as well.
  • I will teach my children how to bake.
  • I will finish my book and put it out in December.
  • I will blog.
  • I will continue to rebuild my marriage. Date nights often, time at home, and a better listening ear.
  • I will love and be me.
This is what I am doing. There is nothing I plan on changing or adding and I am looking forward to it all. What are you plans, goals, intentions, or any things you plan to change this coming year?

What ever you do, do it with faith and do not be afraid to fail.
