I cant believe this year is almost over. I want so much for the coming year. I am not a person who usually or generally makes "new years resolutions" or even goals for the new year. This year I have felt a kind of motivation to do that.
The more I think about what I want for the coming year, the more motivated I get to actually follow through in doing it all and more.
Now that my family is complete, healthy, and happy its like i feel like we can start a wonderful journey, all five of us together.
I want to vow to take my kids on more vacations, to more places to see and travel. All the things I got to do with both of my parents as a child even though they weren't together. I truly want to start eating healthier. If Bryan and I do, then our kids will as well. I know that we aren't unhealthy people. But we eat junk food way too much. I want to feel healthier which brings me to my next goal. I originally said that i was going to quit smoking before or by new years. But now I'm just going to say that 2010 is my year. I am going to quit smoking, and get fit, and eat better. Smoking is by far the most horrible addiction in my life. And I want to quit. I want to do it for myself, my kids, my husband ( but he has to too ), to save money, and to feel better.
In the coming year, we ARE going to go to "the dirty south" and I as well as my children will finally get to meet Bryan's family in Alabama. We all will get to see places we have never seen before. Ever since Bryan and I first got together we have been trying year after year to save money to make a visit out there and every year its something. Whether a slow down in work or popping out yet another baby it has disabled us from going out there. But this year it will happen!
I am going to go back to school. I will pursue some sort of career that is everlasting, something i should have just kept working towards from the beginning. I will start with one semester at a time and at the very bottom as well. But if it takes me the next 5 years to do it I will do it!
I figure if I just keep motivating myself and working towards everything I want or need, in the end it will be so worth it not only for myself but my whole family. There is no beginning and end... only new beginnings that never end!
