Hey yall!! Christmas was amazing for us and we rang in the new year with amazing people. We got spoiled and were blessed to be able to spoil the special people in our lives as well. So much has happened since my blog last month. Matt and I decided that this "New Year Resolutions" would be different than other years. We have started listening to books that make us question ourselves. I know that sounds bad, but they have actually been very helpful.
It has made us reflect on our goals, our unhealthy habits as well as helping our relationships. With each other, family and friends. Out with the negative and in with the positive. I couldn't be happier as we have stuck with it, I know its only eleven days in but man, it just makes me feel so good about myself.
I've also been having these very vivid dreams lately, one night I just woke up and started writing it down, now I'm onto chapter five of a book and I know that all sounds crazy. So that has been taking up a lot of my time lately which, I am actually excited about. For some odd reason I have felt the urge to humble myself, putting others before myself. If you know me, you know I am already a pretty mellow person. Quiet, reserved and not much of an outgoing person, but I found myself spending too much time on social media. Why? Others peoples validation should mean nothing to me, so I have been clean of Facebook and twitter. Only logging onto it at my husbands work shop to update his recent ads for his job. I found myself also spending to much of my day watching video upon video of things that were doing absolutely nothing for me except wasting my time. Its not permanent, but I do know if I ever download the Facebook app on my phone again I will limit it to about 15 minutes a day.
I guess I have just sat here and told myself that my success will never come if I don't work hard at it. Even if I fail, or I don't know what I am doing at the beginning. It also helps when my partner in crime (Matt) is on this little journey with me. Glad that we are on the same page at the moment, always talking about how much we want our friends to succeed. Not that we didn't want that before, but as humans we always want the best for ourselves first. I have realized that cheering on my friends successes and them moving onto greater things is amazing. No need to have to compete with people, and always lifting them up when they think they aren't accomplishing anything.
With that being said, one of my best friends got engaged! My other best friend is doing great in her classes to be an E.M.T. Matthews' job is taking off, my mom is healthy, my sisters kids are growing up fast and she seems to be happy. So I can't complain about much, I seem to have it all right now and I am very content with that.
Be a positive thing in this world. There is too many people stepping on others to get ahead. Who else will lift them up when the world seems to be dragging them down. This world is big enough for me, you, and the stranger next door.
