This year has zipped by fast and moved at the speed of a slothy turtlesnail (totally made up a slower than slow animal hybrid right there) at the same time.
My year in review on BookFace reminded me of things that seemed so long ago. So many memories that I could not believe were all this year. I think because of the daily routine getting monotonous, it makes it easy to forget about the little bits in between that break it up.
I am glad though to say goodbye to 2013. While a lot of great things happened, one thing that was dreary and loomed overhead was this divorce thing. I spent the whole year waiting and going to court dates for absolutely no reason at all since I am still not divorced. Can you believe it?
Enough of that, let us now talk about New Years Resolutions.
My New Years Resolution for 2013 was that I was going to learn to grow things in my yard. I failed at that big time because I didn't even try. Well, I failed at gardening since I didn't try. I did try to plant grass seed in my backyard and failed at that because apparently the earth is fertilized with satan's sweat. Anyhow, I might try that again for 2014. My child will probably will enjoy it as well.
One thing that I did work hard on in 2013 and will continue to do is to look for the positive in everything to outshine the negatives. In years past I have not done this. I have focused on the bad things that come up and dwell on them. I let them take over and control my life. I don't want to be sad and angry so I put my foot down. I will continue that for 2014.
My resolutions for 2014 will be...
Here is a drum roll if you need it.
- Continue to look for the good things every day
- Get back to eating healthier (while I looked at the good things, I still ate my feelings)
- Attempt gardening (I can at least plant one plant)
- Try to move around more (or exercise)
I think that should do it. Maybe.
And now a video. Drum that into your head.
ALWAYS LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE OF LIFE!
