Resolving To Be….?

It’s that time of year again where everyday is feeling brand new and wanting to improve their lives.  It’s a time of “I will exercise more”. It’s a time of “I’m going to save more money”. It’s a time of “I’m going to find love”.  It’s a time of “I’m going to follow my dreams”.  It’s a time for New Year’s Resolutions.wpid-2011-year-resolution-400x400.jpg

January 1 is when most people start the journey of their new year and their resolutions.  Some people are great  at setting, starting and following through on their resolutions.  Some people set, start, and don’t follow through on their resolutions.  I am one of those people that don’t make New Year’s resolutions because I feel that when I want to change, I will.  I just change.  I can’t wait because normally my habits just change without me really thinking about it.

When it comes to healthy living and eating right, I am okay with that.  I actually have a nice love affair with vegetables and fruit and don’t have any trouble eating them.  Exercising, however, is not my favorite thing to do but I know I have to do.  So I do **side eye** sometimes.

As far as money goes, I ended and am starting the year off right already.  There are things I want to do this year as far as vacations because this year I will be celebrating my 30th birthday and I have to, just must, take a trip to New York City. NO question or doubts!

Love in the year of 2014 is me loving myself more.  I’m open to loving someone else if it happens and God blesses me with that person but I’m not looking for it.  It will come when it’s time.  I’m focusing on strengthening my relationship with God first.  That is the most important relationship in my life.  That is the ultimate love.

I’ve been sleeping for a long time and it’s time to wake up from my dreams and start living in them.  I’m going back to school and I started this blog and I LOVE writing that I’m doing.  I just have so many things career wise that I want to accomplish so I’m doing it.

I guess the way it’s sounding I actually have a couple of things that are like resolutions that I want to accomplish but I refuse too call them that.  I will just call them “future accomplishments”.  I like that.  If you have any “Future Accomplishments” that you aspire to, leave them in the comments.  I would love to read about them.

By the way,  I’m actually thinking of changing the name of my blog.  2014, time for new things, right? More on that later!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 2014 is YOUR YEAR!!! Make it count!!


At The Stroke of Midnight….2014!!! Where Was I?

2013 was an interesting year for me.  It wasn’t great but it wasn’t horrible.  The beginning of the  year was worse than the rest of the year for me.  I got over the beginning and got on firm ground for the rest of the year.  By my birthday in September, I was okay and making strides.  The end of 2013 concluded with me being in a good position in my life and looking forward to 2014.

When the clock struck 12 midnight I was sitting on the couch watching television and painting my nails.  Reason being that I worked New Years Eve night and got off at 10pm and decided while there that I would have a nice night in reflecting on 2013 and planning for 2014.

I also wrote a blog post. Not this particular post but one for later.  This one I wanted to write much after the New Year so I waited.  I’m starting this year of 2014 off right with making a decision to write a blog post for the first day of 2014 and hopefully keep it going throughout the year.

I am not exactly where I want to be but I’m changing into the person I want to be and I’m getting better and better everyday.  Sometimes I may not make all the right decisions but I’m consciously trying to be better and last night and in future nights I will be right where God wants me to be.  From this point on, I will be actively letting God lead me and creating a better relationship with Him.


I hope everyone of you were where you wanted to be but most of all where you needed to be last night when 2013 turned to 2014.  I also hope all you “future accomplishments” are in line with the life you want to lead.  HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all!!! 2014 is YOURS! Claim it! I AM!!!
