HAPPY NEW YEAR - Happy Phew Year

Updated on December 30, 2012

Another Year!

I don't know about you, but sometimes it takes me to the last day in December to "reflect" on the past year! Ofcourse I always say to myself "WOW" this year has been BUSY! Then there is always the exhausting moments when I put my feet up (very rare) and vent under my breath about how much I actually do on a daily basis! BUT when it hits the last day before the BIG BANG.....NEW YEARS DAY......

It is TIME to put things in perspective!!!! The parties are all around us. The celebration of yet another trying year and we are all looking forward to a better year ahead!


Growth & Wisdom....

I truly believe that sometimes "little steps" and "little things" bring us closer to a place of bliss. Sometimes we never notice them and sometimes time just passes us by. But the point is that after a certain amount of time, you can either know if things have gotten "better" or have gotten "worse" in your life. I truly believe as we get older we find out who "our tribe" is. I have spent many years, especially in my 30's and early 40's trying to make things work with people who never want to deal with themselves. People who make the same mistakes over and over again and who refuse to "grow up." That is the best way to put it. Now I keep company with people who are more like me and who want to better their lives and surround themselves around anything positive that helps and not hinders. People who want to make a difference in this world in one way or another.

If you can't seem to notice "life changes" that you have accomplished in the past year, then maybe you have not really gone anywhere or made the changes that you needed to make. Maybe you are just "stuck." Sometimes "change" is very hard and painful. A lot of people do not want to move past it and a lot of people stay where they are, even if they are very miserable.

Did you make a lot of changes this year? Even a few that have made your life better? This is important if one wants to achieve happiness and also be content with their life.

Looking Ahead!

So, what is it you didn't do? Who are you still "taking care of" or trying "to save." This year why don't you take care of yourself? If you are like me, you have probably taken care of many, but now is the time to make the changes to bring yourself happiness. Sound good?

Believe me, I have to remind myself every single day to do something for myself and I hardly ever get the time! It is so frustrating I want to scream sometimes, but between work, raising kids and a few other "time consuming" projects in my is really hard to find the time. I'm still doing things for everyone else and I rarely get it back from the people I take care of. Kids are exhausting but they are still KIDS so can't be too hard on them.....

I'm blessed to have a rare few people that actually do give back as much as me.......SOMETIMES.

This year that is changing. If others do not give as much as I do, I'm moving on.....THIS is the promise I have made to myself for this coming year. Hey kids....GET YOUR OWN GLASS OF WATER!! ha ......

I can go on and on about how little I get back...BELIEVE ME! The point is that we are all responsible for our own happiness and if we feel that others in our lives are not doing as much as we do for them, then it is our job to stop DOING. So, with that I'm going to stop DOING for those who don't DO like me. Capiche?!!!!!!!

Something WRONG with this picture!

Don't Give Up On Love.....

Every young girl dreams of meeting the man of their dreams one day, but after a few trying relationships and some very stressful situations, it seems less likely as we get older. I finally understand "why" it seems like this person doesn't really exist. It all started with fairy tales, it all started with a Prince Charming......

Well Prince Charming does not exist so stop looking for him! Because Prince Charming still expects the Princess to take care of him after he has been in the battle fields of bad relationships. She must fix his wounds and make his life better and when it comes to a moment that she needs something, he is doing his own thing. It's ok Princess, you are used to it. He will eventually see the "light." He will eventually understand what a mother can only know. But what it comes down too is that a "Prince" has not grown into a King yet.

The point is that everyone comes with a load as we get older. First marriages, 2nd one's too, kids with others, financial obligations, business, retirement plans, future worries......They are all there!!!

A Prince or Princess only exists when you are 20 years old or younger, but if you are lucky.....maybe one day you will find your King or Queen. Someone who has tasted life and understands where you are in yours. Who makes you a meal even when you don't ask for it or just because they want too. A person who always puts you first and showers you with love and respect like you do for everyone around you.

Don't give up on LOVE. Don't give up on YOU.

Happy New Year!

      Loved your line about Prince Charming, GPAGE. One should not forget that he is still a prince which means he has not yet grown up to be a responsible king.

      Happy New Year!

      Ahhh, thank you for the review. Yes, I am happy to say that I had a great year. I took up running and writing, which leads to feeling physically and mentally intune with myself. Wow, what a change for the good. Looking forward to 2013. Wish you well in 2013!
