No, I did not make it to ring in the new year. It's an old lady thing.....but just before we said good night, I looked at my husband and said....." 5---4---3---2---1---HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! We kissed and went to sleep. It's OK. Just because we sleep through it, doesn't mean it doesn't come just the same. LOL.
So..........as we step into this new year, my wish for you is this: May you be healthy, happy and have the things you need and some of the things you want. May you have time to be creative. We all have that side of us that needs to be turned loose! May you find joy in your life! This past year I found joy! Thinking back over the year, there were a lot of times I just thought...."OK Lord.....This is not funny!" But you know what.....it really was. We have had to make adjustments, like many of you out there. I don't pretend to be any different. But late in the year I realized I did find joy this year. It was there all along, I just never had the time to realize it. We get so caught up in all the buzz of life, we forget to breathe; and although I say this on my blog about every day.....I was not practicing what I preach!
So for me there are no resolutions this year.....I only vow to Take Time to Breathe. To enjoy the little things in our everyday lives and don't sweat the rest! To stop long enough to look around and see what is going on around you.....Look inside yourself and see what is going on in there. It just might amaze you! Oh yeah.....And find your joy...whatever it is!
