Happy 2013 everyone!
Life has been crazy this past year. I've learned so much experienced new things and am feeling better about myself, my life, my skills and pushing my comfort zone than ever before.
I've never been one for the new year's stuff. The sense of change, the resolutions, the notion of a "fresh start" has always seemed a little bit on the silly side to me. I seem to be changing in my adult years though. Maybe it's the fact that I have children now, maybe it's experiencing a sharp, personal loss recently, maybe it's the fact that I've noticed my first grey hairs. Whatever it is, the passing of time is being more keenly noticed.
Since the birth of my daughter, it's been hard, financially spiritually, emotionally. The birth of my son made things harder, but all the more worth it. I feel like we're finally getting the hang of it, even if it did take a few years. The lessons those hard times have taught me will keep me moving forward. The hard times we've made it through, I hope, will keep me humble enough to stay open to the many lessons I have left to learn.
I finally have a clear idea of what I wish to improve about myself this year.
Here is my list:
1. I want to improve my health. Eat better, move more.
2. I want to improve my patience
3. I want to improve my mind, read more, learn more expose myself to more
4. I want to improve my self discipline, not one of my strong suits.
With all of that in mind, my New Years resolution is simple: I resolve, this year to simply try harder to be better. That's it.
I think this is attainable, I think it's reasonable. Whenever "I don't wanna" I will simply remind myself to try harder at being better. I want to be a better, happier, more satisfied me. So, I will try harder.
Luck, love and happiness to each and every one of you in 2013. Let's make this year one of the best we've ever seen.
Stay tuned for more crochet coming soon!
