Happy New Year!

Well, it's 2012! I am very excited to start a new year. Last year didn't go as I had planned. I can't say that it was bad. I have a wonderful family and with them life is never bad; it just wasn’t what I had hoped for. So, I am hoping to make 2012 a record-breaking great year! My first and foremost New Year’s resolution is to remember that “God has his own plans for me.” I can have hopes and dreams, but if I don’t get everything that I desire it is only because God has better plans for me.

As with most people, I have made ridiculous resolutions that I make and break every year. I want to eat healthy, exercise, keep a cleaner house, and be a perfect wife and mother. While these things aren’t impossible, these are not things that you can just pick up New Year’s Day and accomplish every day. My goodness, I didn’t even do them in full on New Year’s Day, let alone the next day. So, for this year I intend to make better choices when it comes to my health, to be a better wife, and to be a better mother. Striving for perfection is not realistic, nor is it healthy. Its only purpose is to set myself up for failure and that is not a good way to start 2012.

I have started this blog over and over. I have written posts, deleted posts, and disregarded posts. I think that all of this neglect was because my blog didn’t serve any purpose; I only did it because I thought it sounded like a good idea. Deciding a purpose is essential if I am going to keep up on my poor blog. I have decided that my blog can serve me well; I can use it as a way to keep me accountable. So here’s to a great year everybody!
