New Year's Resolution

I always make New Year's Resolutions.  It's always possible to better yourself, and I think it's important for my own personal growth to make a goal each year to be better than I am right now.

It's been one hell of a year.  The sad...my grandmother died, my dog died, and I moved from Colorado and left so many people I loved deeply. Then, I moved back east to where I'm originally from, with the perk of able to see my family and my best friend on a regular basis.  I went from financial stability to ending the year with financial fears and problems that must be corrected.

I met last years goal.  I put my condition into remission.  I wasn't even sure I could do it.  I lost fifty pounds.  I really did.  That with moving out of the mountains and back to sea level I believe put my condition into remission.  I get random flair ups now and then, but I live with out medication.  That is nothing less than amazing.

My husband and I celebrated our tenth wedding anniversary this last year.  This was also a miracle.  We separated in 2010.  Living apart for more than a year.  When I moved to Maryland this passed May, we finally put our family back under one roof.  We were at the brink, and put it back together.

I got chickens, and a new dog.  Chickens.  They're so super fun.  I will have to post pictures of them soon.

This year.  I hope this year will bring happiness.  Better financial stability.  My goals this year, are not as far fetched as last year.  I hope to loose just a bit more weight.  Maybe just 30lbs this year, instead of the staggering 50 that I lost last year.  I hope my marriage thrives.  I hope my children continue to grow and develop beautifully.  I hope to make new friends in my new town, and maintain old friendships...I need them.

Do you have goals for this year?  I'd love to hear them.


  1. Good luck with this year's goals. It sounds as if you usually accomplish what you set out to do. Happy New Year.
