A New Year A New Start

Happy New Year! I hope everyone has a safe & blessed 2013. I took a mini vacation from blogging last month. With the holidays, work, Andre's school and life it self, I was feeling overwhelmed. I apologize not being around.
With the break, it gave me time to relax and try to enjoy the holidays. I really can't believe 2012 is behind us now. It felt like yesterday when I turned 40 in February. I remember dreading it as well as all my other friends who faced the same battle last year. We made it through & partied like rock stars. Now with my birthday coming up yet again in a few weeks, it just reminds me that time is truly a moving missile of life. There's no stop watch to pause or slow it down.
As I reflected on this past year, it brought back so many memories. As I turned 40, we also found out we were expecting. The joy & excitement quickly turned to sadness as we suddenly lost the baby. I still think about it till this day and I always will. The holidays brought some sadness to me knowing that we should've had a 3 month old celebrating with us. This year also had laughter & fun times as Andre graduated kindergarten and turned 6. We went on a family vacation to Paradise Island Bahamas for the first time. We had a road trip to Portland, Maine. I went on a all girls trip to Puerto Rico to celebrate my BFF's 40th birthday. There were so many others that I almost forgot it all happened.
Now with 2013 here, I have so many goals, not resolutions to accomplish. Resolutions just seem easier to break. I fell off track with Weight Watchers last year & I've promised myself to get back on that track. I'm going to start hitting the gym with hubby and aim for a healthier me. I want to become more organized and spend more time with my friends, which I hardly ever see anymore. I literally saw one of my dearest friends in a "drive by" when she stopped by my office for 10 minutes. That was the first time I saw her since February. Now that is just horrible. More time with my husband. We are both so busy & tired after work that we don't take advantage of date nights. We were able to go out last month a few times thanks to my mom babysitting and it was so much fun. I miss those days.
I put up the Oprah quote to remind myself that I have to work at achieving all these goals & more. If you don't work at it, then you're not giving yourself a chance for improvement.
So I make a goal to also commit more to you, my readers. I want to post more & do more for you. I know my blog has been lack luster lately which has been disappointing me. I want to make it better.
Have a great year everyone. Even if you don't make resolutions, make goals for yourselves. We can support each other.
Thanks as always
