Simple and Special

I started Day 1 with a vengeance.

I cut out the soda.

I cut out my carbs; like bread and tortillas.

I am on day 11 and my vengeance is dwindling down, but bare with me. I know exactly what is the problem. I am lacking ... can you guess by now? It's the one thing that has kept me where I am... my lack of preparation! Wah-wah-wah!

I obviously know what the problem is and it's time to find a simple solution. I know myself well and if I create a system and color code and over do it. I won't use it and it will be another forgotten attempt in problem-solving my issue.

  1. Keep it simple.
For once I am going to use this as the beginning of every issue I may have in the future. I'll let you know how it goes, it may be a turning point for me.

On a special note:

Tomorrow is a big day for my daughter, Annaleigh. She will be a 14 year old and I will be a sobbing uncontrollably mom who will wish to keep her little girl tiny forever. I know I beg time to slow down; every holiday, every school year and at every birthday, but I can't help it. She's my world and yes I know eventually my world will go and do great things with her self and I only pray that she knows that she's amazing and strong and beautiful.

Here We Go 2016

2016 you are going to be full of surprises.

This is it, there is no reason to live in the past and dwell over failures or feeling like a 40-year-old divorce cliché/statistic. This is the year I realize how many dreams I want to finally achieve and kick fear on it's ass!

This is the year I make a little dent in my world for myself and I'm feeling pretty confident. I literally sat down and did a packet of papers to leave 2015 behind and decided what I wanted for 2016. Yes, many of us sit down and write down our resolutions, but this time it was different. I went in depth with what I disliked about last year and what I wanted for this year. Whether it's realistic or not I feel empowered and excited to move forward...

I'm rocking 2016 with a word in mind:

Why this word?
For me it means I'm not afraid to take that crazy step forward that seems to always immobilize me in the past. I am ready to have the adventure that allows me to explore my creativity. I am ready for the adventure with my family and friends. I am ready to have the last adventure with my health. I am ready to have the adventure with my life.
I walk in 2016 with confidence, excitement and a smile. I think that is all anyone ever needs, especially when you have emotions like mine.
