Happy New Year friends!!
I will admit a few tears were on the edge as 2012 passed. I'm not sure if it was the final goodbye to a year that was good but not the best that brought them, or if it was the fact that 2013 is here and I just have soooo much HOPE for it!!
Either way it brought on a stream of emotions as we celebrated the start of a new year! I am looking forward to the fresh start. In fact M and I have started to "clean" up our lives. We have began going through our belongings and have donated 4 bags of stuff (2 bags of clothing and 2 bags of home decor) in just 2 days and that is just covering our bedroom and some storage bins in the basement! Soo much more to go through but it feels great!!
We have decided to eat healthier, not that we ate unhealthy before, but now we will make a conscious effort! Cut backs on pop and junk food - which is surprisingly easier when you just stop buying it. Our house is of course filled with sweets right now as I am sure most people's are at this time of the year.
I can't wait to get back into Zumba after a month off. My weight is actually going in the direction I want it to even after the holidays!
M and I have a lot of hopes and dreams to start putting into play with our future. We still haven't decided on where we are travelling yet, but we have sat down and looked through some books and found some potentials. We have some small renos to accomplish including new kitchen counters and back splash. We have several DIY jobs to get started as well including a new bench, a quilt, another blanket (obviously the quilting and crocheting are my DIY tasks).
I don't have resolutions and I am learning not to plan my life out and just let it happen as its going to happen. I don't have control over my future, just how I feel along the way and I want to embrace life as it happens with happiness instead of sadness. I don't want to rush 2013 along, I want to take it day by day and be grateful no matter what!
So welcome 2013! Let's have some fun!!
